On a day to day basis I don't think there is much that makes one suddenly sit up straight and feel the blood run from their face! Something in my brain screamed "OH NO! This CANNOT happen!" ..but it had!
I could not sign on to...anything! No Internet Explorer, no AOL, no Google Chrome, no ANYTHING!
I could see three years..or something like that, gone! Lost! All my pictures..my blog..my cyber life..gone!!
Thank heavens for phones..that worked!
What a hopeless feeling. Of course after trying all sorts of things like calling AOL, calling our provider and I called on Patient Husband for advice. He said, "just wait until tomorrow and I'll think of something."
Had the man gone MAD?! I had no computer! I couldn't blog, I couldn't read my email, I couldn't do...anything! And it was only 5pm! I wanted help and I wanted it NOW!
To make a LONG story short, we finely bought a program from our provider that fixes computers. It would cost $49.00 for a one time fix or 15.00 per month for a year.. After that, who knows!
I bought it!!
It took four hours on the phone..it seemed fixed for a few hours and then BLAM, it crashed once again.
The following morning I was up very early calling the provider and signing up for the service.
It still took two MORE days but ...I am was back on line... down again, another day gone..and finally by late Thursday, it had finally been ...so they say...fixed.
We'll see! :)
So for nearly five days I was without my computer. Intermittent service. It seems alright now but I am insecure. A bright spot? Roses for our little red mailbox. I found these today at my favorite thrift store!
Would you believe I've had this same plant for...about 8 or 9 years?? It has struggled..and at times I've thought it dead..but then a little spark of life and back it comes. Now that's love! It wants to stay with me I think. :)
Here is another sweet little pale pink Geranium that I love. I thought it was dead also..but..it just began to bloom and grow once again. Bless it's little heart!
So...the point is that I've been able to get around to visit a bit here and there but I could not stay online long enough to post...I am sooooo far behind in just everything.
And of course, in the meantime, life is happening.
But... I have some cute things to show you. Well, at least to me... :)
At a garge sale I spied these little dutch shoes in one of my favorite colors..
And...they matched my newly painted patio table EXACTLY! I am not usually a fan of "Dutch shoes" but..
:):):) Price was three dollars..but..I WANTED THEM! Someone else was looking over my shoulder..just waiting for me to put them down..I didn't haggle!
Won't they be cute with maybe a delicate little plant in each one ...just sitting there ...on my patio table. Excuse me. OUR patio table!
I made up for it at the next sale..now this was on Friday..which is not our usual garage sale day..but..when you go for a ride..and there are signs...you stop. Right?
25 cents!! It's lovely! The green is the reflection of the plant on my table. It has numbers engraved on the back. Looks like by hand...and Los Angeles..in someone's handwriting.
Then I found these little Gerber spoons. NO idea why I buy these when I run across them..
Well...actually I do. There will always be babies being born in my family. A little Great Grandson is due July 4th and he will need something to eat with! (after a fashion of course..)
I have more I will show you later.. What a neat day today was..and after a stressful week..it was so nice..
More later...I have to spend Sunday catching up on visits to y'all. If you don't see me...give me a hollar and I'll hop over quick as a bunny.. :)
Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday!
