Well, finally! I got desperately brave and called my eldest grandson in LA area, and in no time flat he had me on the right track!!
I cannot begin to tell you my relief. I have always used AOL as a browser, and he informed me that it was NOT the best "browser" to use. He had me go to enternet explorer and I was immediately back in business, AND I learned some things!
He is coming to visit in the next couple of weeks and show me how to do several things. I cannot wait!
He is the most patient young man. Seems like yesterday he was toddling around and today he is in his mid thirties, a husband and a father and the sweetest grandson to me.
This is the fireplace mantel..which I've already shown..
...but this is an idea I came up with from the suggestion that Joyce @ Octoberfarm came up with.
She suggesting putting the orange Halloween lights in containers..and I loved it. So I used a basket with a weave the lighting could show through. Nice!
In the evening it looks like the glow of coals on the fire..
..as it is MUCH too warm here yet to light the fireplace.
It gives off a cozy glow!
My tabletop is ever changing..and
Would you believe there was some things I didn't have room for?
Believe me ..this place is crammed. Every nook and corner..and I love it.
So...are y'all proud of me that I didn't cave and do my usual storming off in a huff and at a rash moment delete my entire blog? Because you KNOW that is exactly what I came close to doing.
What did I learn? I learned what a lousy BROWSER is!!! :)
Many hugs and thank you so much, all of you, for being there for me!
