Catching Up

I have been able to recover my laptop operating system and am working on reloading my programs.  I can now get to the Internet and back on my blog.  I'll be catching up on reading through the posts I've missed over the next few days.  As my husband mentioned this weekend, I have been lost without my computer and am so happy to be able to take my trips back into Cyberspace. 

Mike and I hit some yardsales on Saturday morning and scored some brand spanking new Southern Living Annual cookbooks.  I have the entire collection except for a few of the early 1980s ones.  When I find them now, I pick them up for my daughter Tiffany, who is working on building her collection.  I also picked up 9 plantation shutters for $1 each.  We had breakfast at Southern Restaurant in Red Bank and then stopped at TJ Maxx and a couple others shops.   On Saturday night, we had an outdoor movie party and viewed Night At The Museum 2. 


Of course, riding the four wheeler in the dark is a must.  We intentionally pick movies that we know the kiddies like, but they still get restless after the first half hour.  The popcorn and candy only works for a while before they have to jump up and move around.  Mike took care of that by pulling out the four wheeler and tooling around on some nocturnal tours.


There are not too many things more beautiful than a Southern summer night,when a big ole bright moon is peaking over the treetops and covering the landscape with a silvery glow.   

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and you were able to enjoy your family and the beautiful outdoors.

All The Best,

Pin It!

Hi Anita, I am happy you are getting you computer problem worked out. I miss seeing your smile:)

Looks like loads of fun at the outdoor theater! I am a bit afraid of being outside in the dark but with that big 'ole moon to light it up, I would be just fine!

Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

I've missed some days of blog posts myself, Anita, but I only allow myself to go back about 12 hours otherwise I'll be online foreva! : ) I'll bet that was fun watching a movie outside. It's been so humid and horrible here that we've been enjoying our movies in the AC. Watched some oldies but goodies, too {Michael Keaton in Multiplicity was good}.

Oh my what a fun night. It is still too hot to be out here, but that looks like so much fun.

Thanks for the suggestion to put coffee beans or something in the new hurricanes I found. I didn't have beans, but I did have pebbles and they look fabulous. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I even posted a picture on my TTT post after your suggestion. Love it when you get help from other bloggers. Thanks again. Hugs, Marty

So happy you got your computer up and running again...I am thinking about buying a new laptop this week...The one I blog on has some kind of short in it in after I type a long post or email , it just shuts down without giving me a second to save anything....Nice words are not in my thoughts at that time...
