You can tell from the five posts below how I spent most of my Sunday. I was ready to throw something but it finally all came together. (You may have to click on "older posts" to see them all but they're there).
First I didn't have my camera.
My camera returned and I couldn't find the cord to upload.
I uploaded direct from the memory chip (didn't know I could do that). It worked but it uploaded to Adobe and when I tried to publish, I couldn't find the directory from the Blogger "browse" windows.
Then I looked at the shelf below the computer. There was the cord so I started over with Kodak software which meant uploading, renaming, captioning, deleting, and editing everything one more time.
I started early this morning with the pictures. It's now past 8:00 p.m. I imagine I took at least 50 pictures and edited down to the ones I posted.
Not that I did nothing else. Ray's been back in hospital since Tuesday (or maybe Wednesday?). Some of you already know that from email. I saw him this afternoon and he's doing much better. He may come home tomorrow. I think some of it was exhaustion. We both pushed ourselves but he did more of the heavy work than he should have, even with all the help we had.
The girls called tonight; mostly Rebecca talking although I did talk to Elcie for a few minutes. Rochelle wasn't there but she'll call soon. Rebecca has always been the chatterbox. It was so good to hear her little voice. I miss them. She had to know all about our little house of course and what we were doing.
Let's see, what else? I had lunch with my friend Janet on Wednesday and then lunch and card playing with my shelf making friends R & L (and Tim) on Thursday. That's unusual for me; usually Janet and I just have coffee and it's the first time the guys, Tim, and I have gone out together. I had enough leftovers from both lunches for dinner on both nights so I didn't have to fix anything for myself.
Other than that, I've kept myself busy settling in here. I have a few more boxes in the side yard to go through (including the videos I mentioned in the picture post). Once we're done, the housework will be nothing. I'll be looking around for something more to do I imagine.
Oh, did any of you have problems with Bloglines the other night? Suddenly it showed 18,000+ posts. Looked like it backed up and updated for the last 3 months or so. I marked them all "read" which closed them all. If I missed some of your posts, I apologize. By morning, it was fixed.
We're getting into autumn quickly now. The afternoon temps are in the mid-80's (around 30C) and are expected to drop another ten degrees by next weekend. The mornings are in the 50's and I've packed my shorts away for winter.
We're expected to do our own lawn upkeep. Friend Dawn found us a used electric mower for $40. Works perfectly and even has the grass collector attached. I bought a heavy duty outdoor 120 foot extension cord and we were set. Dawn's husband tried it out on our lawn yesterday. We don't have much grass but what there was needed cutting. I don't think anyone had watered in some time and of course the summer is almost over. We might try putting some seed down and see what happens and might even try a little gardening next year. Ray wants to plant a rose bush.
And that's about it from me for now. Thanks to all for the comments and the emails.
Hope all of you had a good weekend. Take care everyone.
