    All my orchids are happy little campers...they LUV all this rain that we've been having. My grass is perking up as well. I'm SO happy that Don isn't doing much with the construction end of our business lately...he used to lose SO much work during this summer period...rain and concrete just don't mix! emoticon

I'm so thrilled for Brianna...she is just a darling one! I hope she does well in college! emoticonWhat is she taking? What field does she want to go in after graduating?
She'll do well I just know it! emoticon emoticon

    Glad Brianna is excited about going to college. I went after I was divorced and needed a career to raise my son. Wish I would have gone right after high school. But then I wouldn't have my wonderful son.

  Hi Eleni.........
I am so glad to hear that Brianna is going to college. She will never regret getting a degree. My Aunt (who was a teacher) always told me that getting a college degree is what helped to keep her independent and that it was something that no one could ever take away from her. What does she plan to do as a career?

I just called Ken over to the computer so that he could see Big Mama 1 & 2. They look wonderful!!!!! He said, "Oh, is that what your's were SUPPOSED to look like?" He is so cruel!!!

Have to leave now.......
Later......

Used Skype For 1st Time Today

Sunday, August 05, 2012

My brother called and wanted to try to Skype so I downloaded it and then he sent me his contact name. I sent him a request and it worked good. I tried it before on other computer with little eye thing. never could get it to work. This worked good.I am sure as i use it more often I will get use to using it.
I am not real good with it yet but anyone who wants me to be a contact and vice versa send me a message on spark mail.
Nothing much going on.It was another 2 nap day.
I am so proud of Bill. I have him reading again. He has read both Nikki Heat books and I ordered him the new ones. He has also started the Cat Who books.
Really good for someone who never use to read.
I guess that is about it. I gained 2#.

    Hey...I'm PROUD of you for being so techno savvy! Yay Eleni! You will love Skype, my girlfriend uses it ALL the time to talk to our friends in Panama. Don and I have never fired it up. We never seem to be able to coordinate timeframes to hook up with the other party. I think you have to make sure they are on skype at the time...right?

Let me know how it goes...maybe we can skpe...if I can ever get our schedules on track..we never know WHERE we will be WHEN...but I sure LOVE to talk to you...just love it! emoticon emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
I haven't tried Skype but a friend of mine in Arizona uses it all the time because 2 of her grandkids live in Massachusetts and it is a way to keep up with them. My DIL also uses it to keep in touch with her folks in Minnesota and her brother in California.

Glad to hear that Bill is enjoying reading. I have loved reading ALL of my life and it is so hard to believe when I encounter people who do not read at all. It is one of my favorite ways to relax.

Must close for now and get ready to go into town.
Take care.

It has been a 2 nap day as most of you know that is when I am having a tried day.We had ground chicken sliders for supper.
But did get some great pics in garden. I often mention the elusive yellow sulfer butterfly. I usually get about 2 chances a year to get pics. Got some good ones today. Sometimes it looks white when light hits it but it is a light yellow. This is not the big one that never stops but a smaller one.









And this is rose bush that only had 2 roses yesterday


Next is Haven who use to come visit

And my GGD Abigail

    Wowsa...you got some REALLY GREAT emoticonshots of that butterfly. I'm STILL working on your moonlight butterfly bottle...when is your birthday month....if it's already passed...you may get it for Christmas..hee..hee! I ordered the butterfly stopper and it took FOREVER to receive it and then by that time I was distracted with a couple of special orders on my jewelry designs. Now that I've moved my jewelry into the gallery I'm getting LOTS of interest in it. I put together a kinda of interesting display...I'll have to shoot a few pics and post them. I think they grab more attention than the display board I used to use. Kind of a pain in the neck though to take them down and show them to customers then put them back up if they don't sell. I've taken to telling them the price BEFORE I let them try them on...most people don't want to spring for the price...which by the way...they are WELL worth..now that my sterling silver has gone up to the price I used to pay for GOLD...but that way I know the serious buyers...and it helps. emoticon

My Loop De Loo anklets are always good sellers and I've even raised the price on those since I don't have as much time to make more up...my ladies just LOVE emoticonmy Loop de's....I'm glad it finally occurred to me to put them in the gallery! emoticonduh...should have done it right from the get go!

  Hi Eleni........
I think that butterflies are one of Nature's perfect Art Forms. The Yellow Sulphur is really delicate and beautiful. I can see why you watch for it.
I completely wore myself out today. I have been gone so much for the past two weeks, that my normal cleaning has really suffered. Today I cleaned both bathrooms and scrubbed the floors and then cleaned both bedrooms, including stripping the beds and washing the rugs.
I finally sat down at the computer and it started to storm complete with thunder and lightening, so I shut it down and continued with my cleaning until supper. I think I will be in bed early tonight!!!!!! I over-did!!!!!
I hope you have a beautiful Sunday.

Patti
PS........Thanks for the picture of Abigail. It always makes my day to see that precious face. I am missing Elizabeth so much. She will return on Monday. It's been over 2 weeks and I am lonesome!!!

    Your GD is beautiful and I bet she is as smart as a "whip"! I've been debating all afternoon should I or not take a nap but now it's too late but I feel tired. I'll probably be to bed early. That white looking butterfly is beautiful--I've never seen one as elegant looking as that here. Your flowers are also beautiful and you and Bill both must have "green thumbs".

Hugs,

Today has been fairly good. We got groceries today so that is over with. I do have some stuff to wrap for freezer.I will do that tomorrow.
Went to lunch before store. I thought I did good as I skipped the soup and split sandwich and had a few fries. Mistake was letting Bill pick sandwich. 1/2 sandwich had way more calories than I thought.
here are some smiles.

Beautiful Day

Thursday, August 02, 2012

My day started early for me as I had to have an ICD check. That is my pacemaker/defibrillator. All was good.No incidences and battery good. I do it over the phone in 3 months and then go in for a check at 6 months.Any incentances and I go in asap.
Just took a nap and Bill is still napping.Him and Roxy.
My roses are doing better than ever since I brought them to back of house.
These two are so pretty from window. I asked Bill to go outside and take a pic. This is how different our picture taking is. These are mine taken from inside house thru window and at the opposite angle



Here are his along with Miss nosy




If you are on facebook you have seen this.I thought it was so cute.


Hope you are having a good day
