Frustration Solved

At least for now. Took Susie's advice and went back and tried again.  Sure enough I was  able to add some names to the blog list.  Don't think I did anything different but they are there now and that's what counts.  With luck they'll still be there tomorrow. 


This is just a rant about Blogger.  I have edited my page and added My Blog List. I've followed all the direction and have been able to add about eleven to the list.  I am and have been trying to add additional sites for the last hour and I am so frustrated.  I get to the place where it says to add and it just sits there and the background in the back goes to that "nothingness".  I am sure it is something simple that I am missing but GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR nonetheless.

Today on his facebook account, my husband posted he had another fun day with his "amazing" wife.  It's nice to be amazing after forty years.  Maybe he means it like "shock and awe".  LOL

What a beautiful day today.  Weather here at this time of year is perfection.  Well most of the time anyway.  I took a long walk this AM while A spent the first part of the day sorting through and organizing some things he’s been putting off.   This afternoon we went to one of our favorite the haunts to enjoy the water, food, drink and football.  It was closed – apparently the IRS felt their taxes should be paid.

So we just went across  to another spot and had a great time.  For our further entertainment a catamaran capsized and since it didn’t happen to us it was exciting watching it be pulled up. I’m sure the boat owners weren’t thrilled.  To add to the perfection when we got home our favorite football team was on (a rarity in this part of the country) and they went on to win in overtime. )

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

It's an opportune time to reflect on all we have been given and to be thankful for our blessings.
Enjoy the day.

 I'm pretending that thanksgiving calories don't count.

Thanks to PK of New Beginnings who visited my site the other day and awarded me the VBA.  I wasn't sure I was going to do this being so new to the game, but here goes.

1.  I love to read and will stay up until the wee small hours of the morning to finish a book even when I know how it ends because I always read the last chapter first.
2. I believe in a parallel universe

3. I love the water and cruising is my favorite form of vacation

4. I hate housework but love cooking even though I don’t do that much of it anymore

5. I’m told I always have a smile on my face,  probably because I am an optimist.  Although as I’ve gotten older I’ve also gotten more cynical.  So maybe the smile is just a Cheshire cat grin.
6. I cannot imagine how I got along before my laptop although anything else electronically just escapes me. Secretly, its because I just don’t care.

7. I’m closer to 70 than 60 and it’s scary to think I’ve lived most of my life when there is still so much   I want to see and do.

I am relatively new to blogland – sometime within the last year and I am a faithful follower of some blogs and always trying new ones.  I would be remiss in  picking just 15 but the first ones I started reading  New Beginnings, Hermione’s Heart, Shelter in the Storm, Finding Sara,  led me to others. Now the list is much longer although I don’t have them listed on the site because I haven’t figured out how to do that yet. 

Susie of Her Mischief Managed said it very well.  She said  “ sometimes wonders if she has a twin sister out there in blogland”.  I know just how she feels.  It has increased my circle of friends exponentially even though I’ll never get to meet any of you.  You have all touched my life and I am so grateful for your friendship.

Yesterday evening was a made to order creation.  Hubbie and I went to a favorite outdoor venue to enjoy the sunset.  The weather was absolutely perfect, just a slight breeze off the gulf .  Good music, food and company were accompanied by a pod of dolphins that frolicked in the surf for at least 45 minutes. I do love this time of year in our particular corner of the US.  The evening was ended with swats and I leave the rest to your imagination.

Raindrops are Falling

Woke up to a beautiful red sunrise.  Well it's not sunny any more.  We're having thunder and lightening and pouring down rain.  It is so dark I have to turn on lights.  Love to listen to the rai and when it's finished everything smells so fresh and clean.  Tough on my nice clean car - maybe I'll put off going to the store today.  Glad I didn't start off for my walk or I would have gotten drenched.
Have a good day everyone.

It's such a gorgeous day today.  Would love to bottle it.  Hubbie & I spent a great day yesterday.
Went to a local craft fair and a car show.  Today it is just Monday - went for my walk and now going to sit outside and read.  Got a good girl spanking earlier - boy do I love those.  Of course, that is the only kind of spankings I get because I am such a good girl.
