A few years ago-- at my old blog-- I participated in NaBloPoMo. I think it was a November. And I have decided to join another.

It's a great theme and I like the prompts. I know that there will be some days I use the prompts and some days where I post one of the many topics in my to blog list.  Like my trip to Kansas and Missouri. Like my first DIY project. Or my first party.

In addition, as big changes occur in my daily life, I am sure there will be things I want and need to discuss as I process and get accustomed to my new routines.

Wow go to Kansas for a couple of days and you come back to three interns, a major survey to be done in the community, 4 grants due and 6 reports... all due in June.

I have pictures from that trip and will get them up soon.

But first. I just had to post these pictures from this past weekend.

As we all know, I love dragonflies. LOVE. I had one sitting at the house all weekend. It liked to rest on the antennae of the cars in the driveway.

The dog and I named him Paul-- that's how long he was there. He let me get close to him. Even with my camera.
 As close as I dared at first.

 But then he let me take two steps closer and he never flew away!
 Thank goodness for my 50mm lens!
 I had never seen a dragonfly around here with any color.. Always wanted to and now I can say I have. I told myself that he lifted his back end up because he was happy.

I just hoped it didn't mean he was scared. Because he was beautiful.
Or is he a she? How do you know in the dragonfly kingdom?
