I must say I am so missing being able to read all the lovely blogs, that I used to stop by. At our library I can not access so many of them. SIGH...... We have been keeping busy with school work, still have kiddos, who DON'T want to read. Although most of mine really enjoy reading. I just have a stubborn 5 and 6 year old. I now have a teenage daughter, GASP..... My little and only girl is now 13. It seems like not so long ago she was an itty bitty baby. Time flies.

For part of her birthday we went to Miss Emily's Tea room at Riverside Cup of Tea. We always enjoy going there. They served a wonderful strawberry citrus herbal tea, called Angel Falls Mist. It was lovely. A beautiful pink color, and it was truly delightful hot as well as cold. The first course was a hot fruit soup. It kind of tasted like spiced cider. Yummy, then we had cucumber and chicken salad sandwiches, quiche, and spinach balls. Scones, shortbread, and 4 little desserts. The atmosphere is always nice and the services was terrific.

My husband and I took her out to dinner and to a movie the night before. The movie she picked was Hotel for Dogs. It was quite cute and I will rent it again for the rest of the kiddos when it comes out on video. Over her birthday weekend, she also had chicken enchiladas and Oreo cookie cake, which has not a speck of cake in it. It really is yummy.

Well gotta run for now.
Hope everyone has a delightful weekend.

I am so irritated

Okay, I am actually okay, but I so miss my computer. I told someone the other day I could almost be Amish, we have no TV, no computer, and we had no running vehicle, LOL. So except electricity and phones, we were almost there. They said okay so then I guess you can make my some butter then, well they did not know that yup I could indeed so I said well yeah. They were kinda silent, LOL. It amazed them I guess that I can make butter, LOL. We are still hoping to have a computer soon. I guess other things just are more important such as saving to get the transmission fixed, sigh....

Someday I will blog with pictures again. I will I will, LOL. Hope everyone has a delightful week.

Life lately

Well we still do not have a computer at home in case you were wondering we I have been so slow about changing the background and music. I am going to try to take care of that today. Since I am using a library computer it does not access some things, however I did discover a back way into blogger so I can change the background at least, LOL. I will have to see if I can get into project play list to put the old list back. We are still walking lots to get things we need which, hey is not really a bad thing. Unless it gets cold again. It is a lovely 51 degrees today, so not bad. I did not even wear my coat.

Been busy un-decorating from Christmas. I always hate doing it. SIGH..... The house always looks so bare afterward. I did leave up the garland and lights this year. I just took down the red berries and bows. And changed out the Christmas table runners. Well gotta keep running and with a time limit on the computers I need to see about the background. If your reading this and it no longer looks Christmas colored then you will know I have been successful. I may not have a header pictures until I get my new computer.

Hope everyone has a lovely new year
