Hello, Hello, Hello

Just a note to say HELLO!
I missed you all.
I finally got my computer back and guess what.........
There wasn't anything wrong with it.
I have, instead, an internal, meaning, in-house, problem.
It seems that too much is being pulled off this old house's circuit that the computer is on. Bill promises that he will run a separate power source, new line, for the computer or the A/C. Apparently, when they both are run off the same line, we have trouble. One good thing happened out of this delay in my cyber activity....I finally got my pictures backed up. I could not believe how many I had neglected. Let's just say, it took 32 CD's before I finished.
For now, there will be few pictures, for I will be working on a special project that I have been thinking about for a long time.
The other Good thing about my absence, has been that my time was used wisely. I caught up on some bookkeeping and filing, ditching a lot of paperwork, the garden is nearly cleaned out, the truck is ready for our roadtrip to TX., some of the packing is even done, the cabin has been appreciated with nights spent, and lots of meals have gone in and out of my kitchen with Bill and brother Eric doing some logging. Another story, another time. Some canning was finished and even a bit of fall cleaning got done.
The past couple of days I have been reading cause it's been cold out, so why not curl up with a fine book or two or three. Our good friend Jack left some fine reading material here. In fact, I cannot put them down. (A note to Jack here, "Thanks Buddy!, What a talented writer you are. We are thoroughly enjoying your books. And Hi Sherry! I sure miss our talks.)
While my computer was down, our son was back to China again and is now back home with his sons. Two of his older brothers are in the process of having another competitive archery shoot over the weekend, so I expect company to flow in and out again over the next few days. The business, by the way, at the Northern Archery is booming. There is not a day when there are not anxious archers in and out practicing for the upcoming archery season., besides the archery league members coming in each week to compete. The boys added game machines, an electronic dart board, a pool table and jukebox to the bar and waiting area. It's all looking good for their new venture. We wish them well.
Tomorrow is Bill's big birthday...62. Our youngest grandson, Noah, will be 1 the day after so we are invited to a Birthday bash for the two of them. It's going to be a big weekend once more.
You all have a warm weekend, without rain if you've had a summer full of it and with it if you need it. We are hoping for sunshine and warmth. Just a few more warm days before the fall cold snaps stay, would be great.
Now, I have a ton of blogs to get caught up on. That will probably take another couple of weeks. I never realized how much I missed this.

Paula said...

Good to see a post from you. You always have something interesting to say and happy birthday to Bill. We can't use our micro-wave and a window unit in the kitchen at the same time. I've finally got used to turning the air off as I turn the micro-wave on but I wouldn't be happy if it was my computer.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Glad you're back in cyberspace and not just out in space~ but so happy to hear that you FINALLY BACKED UP YOUR STUFF! 32 CD's of JUST PICTURES!!! WOW... that's a LOT of space being used up on the old pc. Everything should run smoother and faster now.

Lucy said...

Glad to see you back and who would have ever thought about that problem. You were missed and your sister just posted mouth watering food, just as you do.

Fred Alton said...

I too have been out with "busy-ness". LoL. Glad to learn that your computer is basically good and you now have things backed up.

Cher' Shots said...

32 CD's ~ OMG I bet your poor old computer breathed a sigh of relief. Did you by chance downsize the pictures before putting them on discs? That is a LOT of discs. I have pics from 2003 on and don't have near that many discs filled. Just saying ~ and WELCOME BACK!!

Dar said...

yes, Cher and Mel, all my pics were first downsized except for a handful...and then deleted now that they are safely saved...I guess we know where Darcie gets her photo-op addiction from...yup Jack and Sherry, Bill and I are getting old and we still don't know what we want to be when we grow up...Betsy, the big screen is already there and it is only outdoor sports and football full time...lots of gals hang out there too and belong to the archery leagues...it's pretty busy this time of year. Suz, Paula, Lucy, Fred, thanks to all of my cyber family for sticking with me. I loveya all...

I love to curl up with a good book when it's chilly.

Hope you have a good time celebrating birthdays, many for Bill and the first for your grandbaby!

Dee said...
