We had a really nice day in Maine. Blue skies and warm it was good.


Sunday, August 26, 2012

This morning I had to talk to a my Spark friends DH and he talked me through making a video. I am happy to say I succeeded. THANK YOU STEVE!!
I have an appointment tomorrow to see if I can learn how to delete the many duplicates that are in my folders. I also need to remove programs I never use or understand. The less I have the easier it will be.
After a few hours of this I decided I needed to get out in the sunshine.
DH and I walked our rail trail. DH hip was bothering him so he turned back and drove the car to the end of the trail to pick me up. It was less than what I usually do but I still had a lot to get done today.
The pool had to be cleaned and that has become my job. I always looked after the chemicals and very soon it will be getting closed for the dreaded WINTER.
I have managed to make 2 DVDís but they both came out different. The second one was perfect the first was only Thumbnail sizes and I was unable to do any kind of editing. I will get there.
My friend just sent an e-mail and we discovered the boat that we wanted to take out to Burnt Island Light will take its last run on Thursday so we are hoping to be able to be on it. Many things in Maine close on Labor day, some campgrounds stay open but others will close since there is little camping being done to keep staff on. Older tourists will be coming here to see the fall foliage, it is leaf peeper season in Maine very soon
We will know tomorrow about the trip, I do not like boats but I love light houses so I just go and hope we get there fast.
I will be seeing photos in my head all night I am certain of it.
HUGS Pat in Maine.

    Steve says you're welcome!! He was happy to help.

Yesterday I got a bunch of pictures to load but nothing would work today. Sigh..I will try again tomorrow.

Hope you have fun on Thursday. Just take lots of pictures and maybe you will get to put them on a blog!

Sleep well, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'll bet that your state is really busy for peak color season! When is that in Maine?
I have wanted to visit at that time, but haven't made it up there yet. I love photography, and think that Maine would be a good place to get a lot of photos of color!

We are still hot here in Texas, fall is about 6 weeks off yet, before we get any significant cool down! Looking forward to September for sure, as it begins to cool down a bit at night........

    Hope you get to make your boat trip.

I would imagine a lot of "tourist type things" shut down after Labor Day.

I biked early then have been getting the guest rooms ready. My DIL and DGD will be here Wednesday and we will go away for a long Girl's Weekend to Amish Country in Central Illinois. I am so looking forward to the time away. My DIL's Mother is also going plus one of her sisters and a niece so the 6 of us will have fun exploring Central Illinois Amish Country.

Take care and have a GREAT week.

Hugs, Sunny

    Sounds like a great day Pat. Sorry I haven't been in touch, we've had lots of family visiting on and off.
Hope you had a good today, whatever you got into!

Hugs,
Beth

    I love the light houses too. It was sometimes a lonely life for the "keepers" but so improtant. I grew up around light houses on Lake Superior in MN and now love to visit them in Ca. Isn't it nice that many of them are still on duty after so many years.

Deleting your extra files and programs is a great idea. I should probably do some computer house cleaning of my own as I know it will make things faster in the end.

Good luck with the pool work!!

    It is wonderful when we have freinds we can call upon for help in the tech area. Glad you got some for your pictures....

You are a very resourceful person and I'm sure you will get the rest of it figured out.

Hope you get to go on the last ride of that boat..... I grew up on the water and love being on boats (as long as they are not leaky old scows..... lol But now I am landlocked so don't get the opportunity much (sigh)

Have a great day.
(((hugs)))

    My ex husband and I shared pool duties. I cleaned and he backwashed.

I hope you get the computer straightened out soon.

I love boats. I've never got to go a lighthouse but would love to.

    I hope you can take the boat and enjoy the lighthouse! It is amazing to read the leaves will soon be changing colors in Maine, here it is the second half of October.
Good for you for not giving up with the computer! You'll get there indeed!

  Glad you are getting the help with your computer that you need. Can't find anyone to help me with mine. Hope you can get a few more swims in the pool before you have to close it down. You went through so much to get it ready to use this year. The boat ride sounds like fun and hope you enjoy seeing all the Lighthouses that you can. Have an Enjoyable Nice Day today. God Bless You , DH and Have a Wonderful Week. You are doing Good too. Take Care.

    Hi Pat, had busy few weeks and I am having trouble getting caught-up.
Glad DH was doing well enough to attempt the walk. Doing things together must be great.

WoW, where did summer go. Closing and preparing the pool for winter....just seems, too soon. This will be a big job for you. I know DH will help whenever he can.

Hope you get seats on the boat going over to Burnt Island Light. Sounds like a wonderful opportunity.
Have a wonderful week. emoticon emoticon emoticon from emoticon

    That is great you are learning how to do DVD's! Computers are so complicated, so don't feel bad if you mess up a couple times!
That boat trip sounds like fun. I love boats and taking rides in them. Never had a problem with them, thank goodness!
I feel like anytime you can get out, matter how short and enjoy a trail, is time well spent! Good for you!!
Thanks for you very nice comment on my 2nd Sparkversary Blog! Can't believe 2 years have gone by already...time flies when you're having fun!! Have a great week! emoticon
