This was a one day affair and it was busy. The weather was perfect. There were inside and outside venders. I am sure they loved the weather being as pleasant as it was.
I'll post more tomorrow. Then I will show what I bought later. Hope all of you had a great Saturday . XO

There are many festivals going on at this time of year. We have the Earth Day Festival in the little town south of here. Also you know Horton's is having their Autumn Market this weekend. That is where I am going today. Got to look around. Might get my plants there today.
Hope all of you have a wonderful, enjoyable weekend. XO

I have to say today was a much better day than I have had in a few days. ...less stress. I was happy to see my friends and share some stories. You know those stories from the good old days. Plus the horror stories of our ailments. Yikes, all of a sudden I did not even want to think of any pains or problems. You know how that goes. We think we have troubles till we hear others' woes.
I think I need to go back to counting my blessings. I know that I am blessed, with loving family and friends. Then there's my blog family too. XO

So I am hoping for us to have a great day. XO

I tried to show what it would not do on my blog site. He just kept going at it....proving even he had problems with it . What the heck....I did not have those problems before taking our computer into that shop.
How would someone even think to justify charging to clean up an error they made. I am not happy. I will not be needing any more service from there.
We live and learn, I guess. Hope your day is better than mine. xo

My foot has been hurting since my trip to Utah. Too many inclines and stairs...Did not see much flat land where we were.
Liz and Matt came to pick Emma up yesterday. Emma teared up , saying she will miss me....it broke my heart. I have missed her today. Some times grandkids are a handful, but we love being with them.
Tomorrow is my big day at the computer shop...oh boy, I am nervous about it...but I need to get this computer where I can use it , or it's an expensive doorstop.
Hope all of you are doing well. XO

I had a great day at her school yesterday. At the book fair she bought a "spy kit", so I will have to be careful what I say. LOL. She's too funny at times.
Her face lit up when her other grandmother, Papaw Ted and I walked into her room together. I will have to remember that face. It was also Grandma Irene's last day at school too. I thought she had a grandson younger than Emma, but he is one year older. Irene's son Matt is my SIL. He is Emma's dad. Well it turns out that Emma's teacher was also her dad's teacher in 5th grade. She looked too young .:):) Mrs. Miller said she was fresh out of college then. This is her 29th year teaching. Many kudos to her.
Well I am going to get busy here. I will post , once I can load my photos, anew. Bless all of you for a great weekend.

This is the last pictures I have taken of Emma and that was June at her sister's wedding. I better have my camera ready today. Emma will come home with papaw and I today. Aunt Pam will be here to greet her.:)
I am still struggling with my blog and files. Next Tuesday is the day the repairman will undo some of the things he did to my computer...that has made it so confusing.
Sending out good wishes for all of you, and prayers for our friends in need. XO

Can't even access photo area, let alone post photos. I wish I had never had this computer worked on....ever feel that way? I have to wait so long in between looking at blogs, that I can't even leave a comment. I am just whining...to you my friends who will listen.
As soon as I can get things straightened out, I'll be back. I miss all of you. XO

Some times mom was funny. She would say , when asked if we could have friends over, "you don't need friends, you have your siblings. " The older kids helped by watching the younger ones. That was not always easy.
Mom didn't have much education, thank God she had some street sense. She worked for the K-mart stores. She worked hard at other jobs too. But the K-mart was where she retired from.
Mom loved all of us and our children. She loved traveling, shopping goodwill stores, and going to festivals. She loved every kind of flowering tree and plant. But her favorites were lilacs and irises.
I think the reason was because that was what was blooming in the yard when she moved into the little house on the corner. That was the first flowers I can remember her having. This picture is one I painted for mom one Christmas.
I miss my mother so much. If you can hug your mom today, hug her for me. XO

Well last week, I read a whole book. The whole thing. I made myself read it. It was not so good. I won't say the title or author's name. I thought it was by another author that I had read before. But it wasn't . The thing is , I stay with it till it was read. So I proved to myself that I can still read a book.
So I am going to be reading this winter . Get yourself a book and start reading. I know Nellie reads all the time :):)
Hope your day is great. I have running to do. My trip time is so close. XO

Yesterday was my 4th time on the phone with the phone company, they are our internet carrier. I had to call the repairmen of this computer again...something they did would not let us stay linked in ...of curse each group blames the other. One time, I just sat and cried on the phone . . I had to apologize to the phone man. He was kind and the best one I have had contact with through these past 4 days. He said I should come to them first about my computer problems...because I have that service. Well just kill me now !! Here I paid 200 dollars for the repairs, from the computer company....plus now I owe them 45 dollars for them getting me back on line ...why??? I feel like I am paying them to repair some thing they did wrong. I had access to things before that I can not do now... I could load my photos to my files and now I can not. I am not liking this at all. This computer is starting to cost twice as much with all the other things being done. I had to order a new modem that will cost 2 dollars a month for life. :( Big bummer )
I sure hope all of you are doing better than I am this weekend. Thanks for letting me whine. :):) XO

Korey loves to take wonderful photos of their hiking experiences. He also loves to cook. That will be a plus for Ashley.
I will be going to Utah soon for the wedding. All my daughters will be with me. Of course Kathy is Korey's mom. :):) I can't wait to hug these great kids.
Today, I bought a new pair of "flats"....to wear to the wedding. LOL Oh how I miss those wonderful high heel days.
This morning was another day with our internet carrier....GAAAA. This time helped more than the last two days. But I think I am going to have to talk with the repair people again also. I don't know how they think this is easier. IT IS NOT !!!

I am calling our company again this afternoon and ask for a new modum. They are not going to like it as they think we should do our own phone lines inside the house. Well after checking everything , the modum is still blinking most times when I try to use the computer.
If you do not hear from me for a while it's because I am off line with all these repairs. I will miss all of you. XO

I want to thank everyone about their concerns for me from my last post , when I mentioned the Dr. visits. I have decided to just go along with this new dr. As she has a degree in pharmacy also. So she knows meds very well. I have been well and doing fine without the blood thinners. Wish me luck when I fly out next week for Salt Lake City.
This is an old picture from the Pork Festival. It's that time of year again. The tents are set up in the main streets of town. Ted and I may go for lunch tomorrow. There will be a mini parade tonight and a big parade on Saturday. Arts, crafts, foods, venders, and entertainment. If I go I will get pictures.
Hope all of you are well and that you missed me a bit. LOL.
