i just have to take this moment to say how much i HATE the new blogger platform.
Apparently it no longer auto-saves (thanks so much for the warning!!) After spending all morning on a blog post, i somehow clicked off the page. i'm not even sure how i did it, but there as no warning 'If you leave this page all current progress will be lost'. Instead i got up to get something for the kids, when i sat back down the page was gone. So i clicked back on the window that was open and it brought me back to my post...except it was completely blank. All the pictures, text....everything GONE.
So now i'm sitting here, having wasted my entire morning wondering if it is worth re-writing it all.
Truth is...it's not.
So instead, i'll leave you with a just a few pictures and a few words. Maybe i'll come back on a different day and write out the full story, but i'm ready to be outside playing and not stuck behind this silly computer.
And began our Autumn with five. The little yellow peep in the center has quite a story to tell, but we'll save that for another day. (having already typed it all out once today) :/
The very last of our summer monarch caterpillars emerged from it's chrysalis and was released on the Autumn Equinox. Something nice about starting the season with new life.
Our monarch flew away and danced circles around us. Came back several times to visit the flowers before disappearing for good. She was our last monarch caterpillar to transform.
Now, i am heading outside with the kids to enjoy these days of warm weather and hold on to 'summer' as long as we can. Hopefully i'll get this blogger thing figured out soon with out too much more stress.
i have several draft posts that were started, but not finished and i have no idea how to find them now. There used to be a little button under the post i'm working on that took me to all the posts, but it's gone. i have looked all over the page and i can't find any way to access my past blog posts and drafts. If anyone can tell me how to do that, it would be much appreciated!! i don't do well with change! Gah!!
