Tick, tock, tick, tock, ... tick tock ...

The year is winding down. Here in The Land of The World's Largest Water Park (even though I'm 1 1/2 hours away), it's a cold, foggy day. There is a slight wind and you can see precipitation in the air, but it's not really something you can feel or measure. I hate gloomy days. But if we didn't have them ... Would we appreciate the sunny days as much?

Even though this year is going out in a blah, bleak manor, at least in my part of the world, the promise of a new year, with great adventures is something to look forward to. I'm not saying that everything will be rosy and cheerful ... there will be losses... disappointments ... but those things make us who we are. They teach us and hopefully make us stronger ... make us better.

So here is to 2012 and to you! May the year ahead be a year of great accomplishment , a year of  dreams coming true, a year of hard work, and a year of great friendships.


More "How to's"

It has been awhile and I am back on my old computer. The main reason for this is because all my pics are here. But I have to tell you ... trying to do anything here is like trying to scrape gum from your shoe. No matter what you do, it just takes forever to get things nice and crisp and new.

You will notice that I have changed my background and header. This took me a good 3 hours, when in all actuality, if everything was running smooth ... it would have been done in 1 or less. I know that soon I will have to let hubby tear everything apart and redo it so that I will be up and running at full speed again.

I thought I would share a blog where I have found great resources on how to do things. Hop on over there and take a look! I'm sure you will find something that you want to try. Sarah @ Clover Lane has a great Blog and some great tutorials!


Merry Christmas

I have missed you my dear friends and I trust that you enjoyed the day with people you love and good food. My computer is still having some issues , but hubby has been able take care of a few of them. He also bought me a new laptop for Christmas. Now, I just have to lean where everything is on it and I will be doing ok. I am so looking forward to hearing from you again.
Don't be a stranger!


Technical Difficulties

I just wanted you to know that I am having some problems with posting. Actually, it's my Mouse that is giving my problems. Last Thursday the Mouse that I had stopped working. The "new" Mouse that I have ... for some reason ... sticks and at some point, usually when I am almost ready to post, erases everything.
Hope to be back soon!



WOW!!! Is it Thursday already? I trust you enjoyed your Thanksgiving Holiday. Mine was busy. Son came into town for a few days. We celebrated "Baby Girl's" birthday ( the 25th).  Just a lot of enjoying one another in a short amount of time.

I want to let you know that I really appreciate the women who have posted on this meme. I have enjoyed learning about you and I am grateful that you care enough to share yourself with me and whoever else that stops by to read.

As we head into the Christmas Season (no political correctness here), I hope you will share a little of your family life. For the next five weeks ... YES 5 ... I am asking you to share some of the TRADITIONS that your family partakes in. That would be 1 tradition a week. Now ... don't let the word "TRADITION" get you in an uproar. It doesn't have to be anything Spectacular, just something you and\or your family does at this time of year. It may be something you are starting this year or something you have done for many years. It can be something HUGE!  It can be something  small. And please ... visit the other Bloggers who post and  leave a comment.
