Katie and I took another long walk yesterday. While we were walking I was looking at all the flowers and bushes in the sand surrounding us. At first glance, it just looks like a bunch of bushes, but when you look closer, there are a lot of different kinds of plants here.
If I didn't have Katie, I wouldn't take half the walks I take, and I wouldn't walk half as far on each one. Without this blog, I'd never be looking around so much for interesting things to take pictures of for that day's post. I'd miss a lot. And if I didn't have this new camera, I wouldn't be able to take such wonderful photos.
The following photos of the desert plants may not be interesting to some readers, but I wanted to remember them, so here they are. The first one is the only cactus I've seen here.
I've mentioned before how quiet it is here. As we were walking, I could hear a bee buzzing across the road, and I went over to get a photo. It's so quiet, you can hear a bee buzzing or an insect flying. I also got a few photos of birds and a little lizard.
I wanted to say something about Facebook. I do have a Facebook account, but I don't use it. When I first started on Facebook, I just couldn't believe all the "stuff" people had on my wall. Their political opinions, stuff I was not interested in and didn't want on MY Facebook wall, all the little day to day things people (and their friends) were doing. I couldn't believe the volume of information. I really didn't like it and there was not enough control. I know things are different now, but I just have a negative feeling about Facebook. I ended up unfriending everyone, then I felt bad, I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. It wasn't that I didn't like them, there was just too much stuff on my wall from too many people.
I know having a blog like this, which is open to the world, might seem even worse, but I feel I can control exactly what goes into my posts. Also, if I don't like a comment, I can delete it. That hasn't happened, but just in case, I do have that control. I didn't feel that way about Facebook.
So, I have had people want to "friend" me, and I don't respond. I'd rather be cyber-friends through my blog and yours rather than Facebook. For now, anyway. So if you've sent a "friend" request to me, I'm not going to be your friend on Facebook, but I'll be a great friend on Blogger.
