Sholom “Peace”

We are so blessed to have the beautiful Sholom Park nearby.

And even though trees were lost during Hurricane Irma, it is still a place of peace.

My hubby and I spent about an hour walking all through the park this week and saw lots of workers still restoring some of the areas.

But for the most part, it is in good shape.

The weather has cooled quite a bit so we’ve taken advantage of it to get outside.

10Oct

It’s been a very good week for me. I am on a new computer TODAY! And my hubby worked hard to transfer files from my ‘old one’. It didn’t exactly fail, it just slowed down to a crawl. I couldn’t visit much because of the problem with loading a page. Even my emails took forever. So I’m very pleased to be on a new Acer Netbook. I’m zipping right along. And if I haven’t visited with you lately….shout it out! I can’t wait to catch up with everyone!

I’m also writing this in Windows Live Writer. It hasn’t been available in awhile so I’m anxious to see if this will work! Cross your fingers for luck!

I'm glad your beautiful park wasn't too badly damaged in the hurricane. What a beautiful shot of the butterfly on the pink petals (last photo). Nothing like a new computer to make you feel suddenly ready to tackle the techy world again :) Good luck with your new gear.

This is a beautiful place to go walking...so peaceful and serene. It's so nice to have a fast moving computer isn't it? My PC was just fine but we upgraded our service and now it flies like the wind! Happy November 1st! HUGS!

It's awesome to buy from those who are trying to make a life. The ribbons are so pretty and so is the book!

How great to have a new computer! Sometimes, we can clear and delete and defrag but it still doesn't work!

Terri D said...

Getting a new computer always feels so good! Glad you are up and running faster!! Your photos are gorgeous. What a lovely park to have access to!!

I'm so excited for you for your new computer. Working at a snail's pace can be frustrating. Your park and flowers are so beautiful! Happy November, Diane!

Sholom Park is a very special place. Christmas in November! Yippee! Have fun with your new computer.

Jeannie Marie said...

Looks so nice! It's been very cold up here in Ohio. Too early to be this cold. You got some amazingly beautiful pictures!

Marlene Plasencia said...

Hi Diane so happy to visit you again. Need to catch up on your beautiful pictures and fences you always find. Love your park oh yes it is a blessing. Your pictures are lovely, my fav is the shot with the trees and the moss dancing in the wind. Enjoy your new computer.
Sending blessings,

BeachGypsy said...

congratulations on your new computer and sounds like it works great and is lightning fast!! that park y'all go to is so pretty and looks so peaceful and sunny! Wow, it's almost the weekend and NOVEMBER has arrived, hard to believe, LOL---the years just race by as I get older.

Diane! Always a pleasure to see your name pop up. Love those gorgeous colors. Looks like we survived another storm, sis. ;) It was a close one though.

THANK YOU so much for for the link to Wilde Stories. How'd you guess he's one of my favorites? ;)

Blogger is making it almost impossible to comment unless you have a Blogger blog or a Google account, so I went ahead and created one so I can comment on your page and Sheri's (Red Rose Alley). Hope this goes through.

Stay in touch. I normally don't open comments on my photo-journal, but feel free to visit my film food page (link on my home page), or Instagram if you're ever there.

Sholom Park looks like a beautiful place to go walking. Glad to hear the hurricane damage wasn't too bad.
I sense the happiness in your post. Nothing like a nice zippy computer to make the blogging process run smoother. I think mine is nearing the end. Ugh!

Vee said...

Yay for a working computer! And I am very glad that your special park has been restored after the terrible hurricanes. You were asking about the storm here that was nothing like the hurticanes you folks had...my sis just emailed to say that she has her power restored...finally! It’s been a long five days for them.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Oh how I envy you my friend! To be enjoying such beauty and lovely weather like that! The flowers are gorgeous and what a lovely park!

BeachGypsy said...

good morning my friend, did y'all make it to the farmer's market and did you find lots of goodies? Hope you found a plaid shirt to wear, ha ha LOL LOL LOL

Jenn Jilks said...

Helen Philipps said...

Gorgeous pictures, Diane! So glad you have a new computer and looks like you have soon got used to it too! Wishing you a happy weekend xox

Susan said...

We've had some warm days here, but a "cold front" is expected this weekend. I'm amazed that I have Rhododendron, azalea, and even a few daffodils up--they don't know what season it is!

Sandi said...

Sholom Park! What a great name.

Red Rose Alley said...

Your Sholom Park is so lovely, Diane. I can see why you go there often. The purple flower is a gorgeous color. I love purple flowers...and red. : )

Have a wonderful week.
