Nothing to say, or nothing I feel like sharing?

Aside from having a very busy late week and Saturday, I've also been struggling with a bad case of "don't wanna talk 'bout it."  I hate that - it's like being emotionally constipated.  But I also don't want to unload on unsuspecting bystanders or even tolerant friends when I'm in that funk.  Bear with me, it will get better.  Or, as I've said before, "This too shall pass.  Maybe like a kidney stone, but it WILL pass!"

Instead, I'll just share a few random pictures:

My new Etsy shop banner - I'm learning how to make my own banners.  Old dog + new tricks = steep learning curve.  I'm still not 100% happy with it (the resolution isn't as crisp as I'd like), so it won't be my last effort.  Live and learn, I guess. 
 Our daughter riding at a friend's birthday party last week.  
She had SO much fun, and loved the whole experience.  
She wants riding lessons now.
I like the art work of M. C. Escher.  His drawing "Three Worlds" is one of my favorite images.  This photo reminds me of that picture - only without the fish.

The last green of summer, taken on my Erie Canal walk a couple weeks ago.  You can see the first yellow leaves, but the spring green of this tree was still going strong.  I won't see much of this glorious color until spring now.  Maybe I'll make this my winter screen saver.
