... this and that.
New Blog Look
I am trying something new and simple with the blog. Thanks for the nice comments. I'm trying to get my blog favorites updated. I've created an awards - slide show in the sidebar. I have other things I want to add - so bear with me.
Posting for JW: Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Posting for The Ruralhood: Saturday (Next post: A Summertime Job for a Rural Girl)
It's been a long bumpy road from the time I picked out my new laptop, bought it, had it delivered, did the updates, registered everything, loaded a few files from the old to the new - just to have its memory fail, to call the company for another to be delivered - to get IT delivered, to get the old sent back, and start the new computer stuff again. (Whew that was a long sentence.) I've been permanently copying over files from the desktop computer. I didn't know I had soooo much on my old computer. I want to wipe it and then reload it. It'll take a while.
I'm still writing. I am currently finishing two shorts. Then I need to get them sent out. I have been working on an essay. I also have been working on two books and have decided I need to choose. I'm not talented enough to work on both at the same time- even though I want to.
My new grandchild is a …boy!!! He will be born in late August...probably...maybe. I didn’t care what gender the baby was, but it seems my poor little six-year-old granddaugther did. She was a little distraught. She loves her two older brothers very much, but she really wanted a more balanced family...you know...another girl. She told me, "I will not change his diapers." She stayed the night with me a week ago. We did a lot of drawing and talking. She called it a sleepover. We did a couple of drawings in oil pastels. I have an apple on my kitchen wall that I did in pastels and she wanted to make one. DID I mention she is very talented and quite beautiful? I would say that about any six-year-old genus girl-child who has movie star qualities. Yes I would!!!
As I said before my hiatus, I've reached my 200th post. I want to give away my give-a-aways during the next few weeks. If you would like to be entered in the drawings- just tell me in the comment- "enter me" or something like that.
Here are the trinkets:
