Time to Ponder...

2 comments:
I having been watching the news closely with all the fires that are going on in Central Washington,,, worrying that I will get a call from my daughter that they have to evacuate their home,,, not an easy task when you have live stock, 3 kids, 3 dogs and a 1/2 dozen cats... but they are emergency prepared,,, the 5th wheel is ready as is the live stock trailer..  that being said I still worry about them and my precious grand kiddos.
 
 
 
Our son-in-law is a fire fighter volunteer in training... so I am doubley nervous..

My heart goes out to all the families whose homes and lives have been devastated by these fires, as well as the responders who are fighting the fires  and all the other people who are doing what they can to help.
Blessings to them all.

Windows 10, No More!

No comments:
OK, I had finally had enough frustration with Windows 10,,, and un-installed it... now I am back to Windows 8.1 and my comfort zone!
Now I can post my photos... Whoot Whoot!
even my grand-girlies are happy for me!

Here I am...

Here I am... I have been having fun...
I went back to Spokane, WA., to visit with my daughter and grand-kiddos, go shopping, playing and having fun with the kiddos.

I also got to get in another Glamping trip with my Glamping Gal-pals, over in Elk River, ID... another fun week at Girl Camp...

I took lots of photos... and I would love to share them with you,,, however... ever since I updated my system from Windows 8 to Windows 10... I can not get my computer to accept down loads from my camera and worse yet... I can not upload any photos in my picture file to my blog.....

To say I am an unhappy camper is an understatement!
I have been struggling with Windows 10,,, my hubby likes it,,, but so far all I have had is headaches and frustration with Windows 10...

So rather than bore you to tears about my woos with Windows 10... I think I will open a bottle of Wine and a box of chocolate,,, after all, chocolate cures everything! lol!

Ruarl Living...

1 comment:
Living somewhat rural,,, up in the mountains, is not for the faint of heart and certainly not perfect for going barefoot...

I heard one of my barn kitties making a fuss,,, the fuss was over her separating a lizard from it tail... ewe... so after I disposed of the lizard,,, I discovered this... at first glance I thought it might be a young chicken ,  I am leaving it for hubby to see what his guess is. (to my friends who have chickens,,, I am so sorry..)

 I am not sure what 'it' was.... but it no longer is....
 then  as I walked back to the house I nearly stepped on these, yes,,, "Deer Raisins"... we have them all over the property,,, and sometime through the night 2 off our trash (empty) cans were knocked over.... Oh Deer!  and yes, these are a few reasons I don't go barefoot around here....
 but what really sent me over the edge was that the neighbor's pup came partly through the live stock fencing and got hold of another Gerkin plant... and this one had gerkins on it!  uugghh!
 between the Drought, Deer and the pup,,, my garden is barely surviving...even my grapevines and grape leaves are getting eaten,,, I am thinking by the grasshoppers....
all that being said... the radishes went crazy,,, and are now going to seed... but here is something I didn't know as I have never let them go to seed before... they grow little pods.. at first I thought an errant pea got planted... but nope,,, it's a radish... ahh the things we learn in the garden!
