All week I am getting accustomed to it, but I am finding it very difficult to navigate without a mouse. It is a Sony Vaio, I am wondering if I can purchase a wireless mouse for it? Working on photos is impossible, so I am apologizing in advance, I could not crop to save my life.
The worst part is that I lost all my photos (over 1500 of them) as the 'mother board' is deader than dead. I had photos of things I did over the summer that were getting ready to go into posts and they are lost. And I cannot recreate them. My fault for thinking that Kodak would have my back. They were recently taken over by Shutterfly, and said they could not find me or my photos in their database. I think I may find them in Picasa, though, have to check that out.
Some good things that made me very happy recently:
I was featured for the second time on Miz Helen's blog, Miz Helen's Country Cottage . It was my Melon Chillers drink. Thank you, Miz Helen, always an honor.
My friend Kathleen J. surprised me custom wrapping paper that she had made from one of my photos. It is one of the photos in my header.

Kathy had it made at Ritz Camera in Florida. Thanks again, girlfriend!
I also won a surprise giveaway from Vee at A Haven for Vee. I received a fun package with things that Vee picked just for me, after she went through my blog posts to see what I liked.
Mug mat sewn by Vee with fall colors, cupcake liners that match the colors, a pretty green mug (love the shade and do love my coffee!) and delicious maple cookies. I had never tasted these before, they are good.
Also included were three lovely note cards with photos taken by bloggers.

And before it is really to late to share summer decor, I snapped a couple of photos of centerpieces I had out on my table.
I was starting to put things away and took a quick photo. The dish is Depression glass and has been in my home forever. Glass stones and pebbles from $ Tree, coral from Christmas Tree Shop and surfing snowman from Lenox.
My glass terrarium is filled with white sand from $ Tree and shells and blue and green glass stones also from $ Tree, starfish are from Christmas Tree Shop. I am thinking this will take up residence in one of the bathrooms.
Typing this was a little taxing, I hope I will get used to it soon. I am an old doggie so new tricks don't come easy for me.
So, what's happening by you?
