Hippity Hoppity Hobbledy Happy Holy Week, and Some Easter Tags, Free!


Hello Bloggie Frens...

I haven't forgotten you, or my blog! Just overwhelmed and swamped, but making progress. Health, volunteer "job," finances, pets' health, hubby's health, and being stunned by the state of the world have set me back on my heels a bit. 

Today a hickory hiking stick arrived. It isn't very tall, but taller than a cane. I'm afraid I am going to be a bit of a spectacle now, using the stick. But I need it in order to be able to get around better. It's more useful than a cane to me, at this point. But, I do think I look odd, most probably. Well, too bad!

But I'm hopping in to say, or maybe hobbling in to say, "Have a wonderful Holy Week!"

Mayhap someone may need some free Easter tags. So, here some are! Similar to last year's, but a bit different.

Remember, use the LINK so it prints out the right size. It's stored on Google Drive, which is safe. We think.

  1. I just popped by to see if by chance you had posted and YOU HAD. I was getting worried about you.
    I don't think a hiking/walking stick will look strange. A couple of months ago I had to use one for a while. Unfortunately using it made my shoulder sore and I had to quit.
    Happy Holy week to you too.

  2. I have a cane...use it often. I also have a walking stick with a "native" look to it (decorated with silver, feathers & turquoise beads).

    It sure is good seeing you blogging again!! Be well my friend.

  3. I think walking sticks are pretty cool. You could add bling to it 🤣
    Good to read you again.

  4. Oh, I have missed you! I am so happy to see you here again! I was getting a bit concerned! And a hickory walking stick sounds wonderful! You must send us a picture! I have a walking stick that my son "whittled" for me. I use it when I go wandering about the edge of our pond, etc., or on woodsy hikes. It is very helpful and can be used to fend off unwanted critters if needed! I hope you have a pleasant and beautiful Easter. Thank you for your comment on my blog. Lily Grace sends her love to you. She hasn't been writing as much lately either, mostly because of me. I just don't have the "energy" to come up with new adventures very often, but she does like to make cameo appearances on my blog now and then. God bless you my friend, and stay well.

  5. So very glad to see you post. I did wonder about you. who cares what anyone thinks about your walking stick?
    Happy Easter

  6. I was also delighted to see you posted and let us know what is going on in your life. I think a walking stick sounds rather arty. Much better than a cane, I suspect.

    You are SO generous with your tags you make for us. Thank you and have a blessed and holy Easter, dear Holly.

  7. The bunnies are so cute! Hope your stick helps you and is what you need. I don't worry so much about how I look any more! lol Enjoy your day!

  8. The ext time I'm at the flea market and the person with walking sticks is there, I'm getting one. I have a cane in the car for those days my hip is acting up, but I don't care for it. It doesn't seem as helpful, sort of wobbly, as my walking stick I use outside. Besides, a walking stick with a carving at the top just looks more awesome. Like if anyone gives you crap, you'll thump them on the noggin. Not that I *would* do that. I think.
    I hope things get a bit better for you, and the world. Thank you for the tags.

  9. I'm so glad that you are back and your hickory stick has arrive. A hickory stick can be a best friend when you go about and around.

    The bunny tags are beautiful.
    Happy Easter


  10. Happy walking stick!
    They are a nice help.
    Have a pleasant Easter

  11. I'm so glad to see this post! I have several canes and a beautiful walking stick my father made for himself many years ago. It has come in handy when my knee acts up. Have a Happy Easter!

  12. I think you will look very hip with your walking stick!
    Sweet tags. Thank you.
    Happy Easter to you, hubby and the furkids.

  13. thinks you are likely to start a whole new "trend" down there in the southwest with your walking stick. People who don't actually need them will be wanting one. 🥰 The bunny tags are beautiful...thank you for your creative, generous, heart. Wishing you a blessed and joyous Easter my friend...and so glad you popped in with a post. ~Robin~

  14. So nice to see you back! I'm looking forward to getting back onto my cane. What a long process!

  15. I have heard several bloggers that say how much having walking sticks help them. even those who don't need a cane use the sticks. one hiker uses 2 as does her husband. good luck with the hobble stick. glad to see you pop up again. you are right about the condition of our world

  16. I was starting to wonder how you were doing? I'm so glad to see a post from you this morning, Holly. I hope your new walking stick suits you and you can get around better. The bunnies are really cute.

    Happy Easter to you, dear friend.


  17. Thank you so much for the Easter tags...they are lovely ...and do not worry about what anyone thinks of your walking stick - you must stay safe! Happy Easter

  18. Dear Holly, I've just recently begun to use a cane because of balance concerns. I'll be interested in learning from your postings the difference between a cane and a walking stick. I'm all for whatever works. May the Easter season bring blessings into your life and hope into our world. Peace.

  19. Folks use walking sticks a lot over here. So glad all is well for you. Was getting worried about you. Thanks for the tags and Happy Easter! Janice
