Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Yellow flower photo shoot


It looks like yellow waves mama!

Katie here. I know, I know, you’ve probably been wondering where I’ve been. Well I haven’t been doing anything exciting, that’s for sure. Mama has been busy with her camera and taking a lot of pictures that are not me. I don’t know why. Surely there is nothing as beautiful as me. Mama is fickle and I usually just ignore her.

But sometimes a princess has to speak up and I think it’s about time that I point out the lack of adventure around here. Totally unacceptable.

You’ve got a treat over there…right?

Mama did take me over to my park a couple of times this spring. She likes to do a photo shoot of me in the pretty yellow flowers. She says most people don’t like these flowers but she thinks I look beautiful sitting in the middle of a huge field of yellow.

Well of course I do mama. I look beautiful no matter where I’m sitting, and I thought all my loyal fans would like to see some of the photos featuring me instead of some anonymous birds.

The crab apples are almost ready to bloom too!

I know mama likes to take pictures of birds, but truly, don’t you think she should stick with me?

Anyway, we had fun over in the field filled with yellow flowers, and mama has promised me an adventure real soon. In fact she says I’m going on my adventure this afternoon.

It’s such a pretty day, let’s stay here for awhile!

Wait a minute.

I’m going on my adventure? Why isn’t she going on my adventure? I’m not sure I like the sounds of this at all. If you get a phone call from a payphone it’s probably me. I’m counting on you to come save me!

You’ll come save me….I’m just sure of it!

After all, a Princess knows she can depend on her loyal subjects. Right!!??

I’m counting on you!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Uh oh, Katie – I kind of think your adventure will last a few days – I kinda think you’ll be going to doggy camp. It is summer, you know, well – okay, close enough to summer – and lots of kids go to camp for the summer. You’ll love it. I’ve heard their people really love Sheltie princesses.


  2. Cell phone is fully charged and waiting for your call, Katie. I’m with you…..something doesn’t sound right about this so-called ‘adventure.’ Now I am wondering if these photos were a bribe, perhaps? No! Your mama wouldn’t do that, would she?


  3. A pay phone? Where would anyone find one of those anymore?


  4. Of course, Dallas and I would come rescue you, Katie! We know doggy camp isn’t exactly a vacation, so call away. And yes, you look beautiful in your field of yellow!


  5. Yellow flowers are heavenly! They mean that winter has gone underground and the flowers have replaced him…


  6. Beautiful as always, Katie. You outshine the lovely yellow flowers. I don’t know why people don’t like dandelions, but I happen to love them.


  7. Reminds me of when I made dandelion wine in college and tried to hide my fermenting stash in the seed storage rooms of the agronomy lab. When the bottles started exploding, they knew who was responsible!
