So, I am FINALLY back to my keyboard and going to post a few happenings. It has been busy, it has been hectic, and this is coming from a woman whose only desire (when she retired) was to clean out her closets and wash down walls and windows, and get her house in order from years of giving it a lick and a promise to some day do a thorough cleaning from top to bottom. Now I know most of you are thinking "what a nut, I could be thinking of a million things I would rather do than clean house." Well girls, so could I, I repeat, so could I, but I have always had this idea that to be totally happy while goofing off with my fun things to do, I had to have a spotless house so I could enjoy every guilt-free minute of playing with all the things like yarn, fabric and crafty items that I bought over the years. I have been retired from nursing about 2 and 1/2 years and I have not touched one closet. In fact, I have not lifted a dust rag in ages. I have been doing good to just keep my head above water and clean clothes on our backs. But I have been working the hook and catching up on all your lovely blogs, mainly the pretty holiday decorating you folks have been doing. One friend (she isn't a blogger) grumbled the other day that she had to decorate the tree. I wish I had some holiday spirit, it seems to have gotten lost in all the obligations throughout the months and weeks. Another person (I use to work with) told me "Gee it sucks to be you!" after I told her what we were going through. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Usually my skin is tougher than that, to let someone sting me with words that were more of a surprise than anything. I don't think she really realized how it sounded, the words that came out of her mouth. The thing was, she is so totally wrong, I wouldn't trade my life for hers. I have a husband I totally love and children and grandson who I love as well. I wouldn't trade any of them for anything. Well enough of all this sappy stuff, you want to know what I have been doing and I want to share it.

OKAY, what the heck is all this "no room in the Picasa Album" cause I have totally filled my allowed space? Is this something new dreamed up to help clean out my pocket book? And how do I delete the photos in that album? I tried but there is no way to do it when I right click on the mouse. Maybe I don't want to purchase more space and would rather clean out unwanted pics to make room for those I would like to have in there now. 

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! Will I ever get to posting those new pics? 


  1. Hmmm..I cant remember who else had the same problem. Darn..anyway just letting you know I stopped by and hoping your home is always blessed with love..Blessings

  2. I just paid for extra room on Blogger. It was like $5 for a year. It's worth it to me! :-)

  3. Hi Susanne! For a quick fix that will work for a free Flickr account. You can post your photos there and then link them here. It's only a temp fix because after 200 photos, you'll run out of "free" room - but it's a fix for now!! There are other photo hosting options out there too - all of which would allow you to link up the photos and post them here on your blog. I'm sorry the thoughtless words of that person stung so deep...people can be so unaware sometimes! Sending blessings...good to see your post! Hugs, Annette

  4. people can some some really dumb things without even thinking. sorry you had this happen. I suffer from depression so things like this really hit me hard too.

  5. I thought my Irish Grandma and mom were the only ones who said TO GIVE IT A LICK AND A PROMISE...
    so fun to read you use the expression too!!

  6. Blogger must be short of money because lots of us have received similar messages. I haven't done anything with mine yet but have received some good advice on my last post. Also similar help for a blogger on Ravelry on the We love Lucy forum.
    Sometimes people hurt us so easily without meaning to. You have so much to be thankful for, we all need to remember our blessings. Hope you are gaving a lovely Sunday.

  7. Well see your feeling. Blessings all the time. The blog pic problem is irritated. I already forced to delete some in Picasa to free some space. Some old posts are without images now it looks odd. No way. Was told if your downsize the pixel to 800 it's not counted for space. You may do that in the future.
