Long time no see..Mother Hen has been on the go.I hope you are all doing well. Months ago I had been praying about getting a part-time job and lo and behold a door opened. The Mother Hen in me has found myself working with little chickadees….babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Having not worked for over three years, it has been a bit of an adjustment. I actually feel as though I have more energy, and that’s a good thing.Of course time will tell whether I cut the mustard or not. Here are a few recent photos of the Santiam River.



And wild flowers on the nearby hills that are alive with Spring sightings.. I do miss not being able to keep up with reading, but maybe I’ll get better at multitasking.. (:  Later alligators..
