Just in case you fellow bloggers
have forgotten who I am ....
take a look below!
I am BACK!
My laptop had acted silly a couple
of times in which it would boot up
but the screen would not come on.
I would shut it back down, set it aside
for a bit and then try again. It always
came back up...
UNTIL the other day!
It's booting up, screen just is not
It was suggested that I remove
the battery and put it back in.
Even the internet suggested that.
Well on ACER laptops the WHOLE
back has to come off. I sit and unscrewed
all those screws, went to lift the back off
only to have it stick in one area. Being a afraid
to pull on it I put it back together.
The yucky behavior of my laptop
on Thursday (at this point, I think
it was Thursday)!
Anyway...I have another older
Acer that I had lent
Caleb my grandson. Since he was not
uing it I requested
Amber bring it to her work on Friday.
She forgot but
did remember today so I am on it now.
Still needing to have the other one fixed.
And lets not forget to
mention that I have
a desktop but it is a 2008
and I only basically use that
for editing photos.
Anyway....if you missed my intro...
And I have been somewhat busy with
small little projects.
One being that I wanted a rug on my deck.
Being that my base of the deck is weather
worn the paint was soaking in and falling into
the grooves the paint was not covering
like it would on new boards.... BUT I love
it. The weathered boards giving
a well worn look to it. I hit it with some green
then a beige. I then stenciled some areas and
added the fringe.
I still have yet to spray it to seal it...knowing
that it will probably not last long at all...
But I don't care
I LOVE IT
So what do you think of it?
While on the subject of the deck I
thought I would share the whole
thing with you since you hear about
me and the babes being on it all the time.
This is where, believe it or not, I curl up
and take naps. I lay on my side, bending my
knees and I sleep so well.
Course Dakota did a photo bomb!
Next to that is my chair. It did sat
across from the glider but I love looking
out into the yard so I moved the glider
down and put the chair on the side of
You can see better in the pic below
how they sit side by side.
Kitchen window is behind the glider.
Also in that pic you will see the far end
of the deck. There is a divider that separates
my neighbor and my deck.
If you look hard you can see the painting
I did on the wall where the storage unit
door used to be before I had it sealed up
and a door cut in the pantry to access that
Here is a better shot with a streak
of sunlight covering most of it.
It is a narrow deck but I still have
all the room I need.
I even have my lunch/dinner table....
which today serves as a painting table.
I have been working on crafts.
Course I just leave Lily's perch out
these days cause she is never inside
to enjoy it in the window like this past
winter. She goes straight to the back door
when I get up, I open it, out she goes and I
leave it cracked for her to come and go.
The other end of the deck does not
allow a lot of room for things since
the deck screen door is on that end as
well as the door to the kitchen.
But with that I have Lily things! HAHA
The grill used to sit there in the corner
and Lily perched there to watch the birds
on the creek. First time I fired
up the grill I became
concerned with her jumping up on it while
it was still hot, so the grill went to the
backyard off the deck and I got a cover
to protect it.
But as you can see, Lily has her
t-shirt box for getting in
(green item~ PINTEREST IDEA)
and the directors chair I was going to
make a suitcase stand with became a spot
for Lily to lay. I placed a board on the
bottom 1/2 of the directors chair and
one of Dakota's doggie pillows.

And there is the tour of the deck.
I used to live in the glider when I was
out there however after purchasing
the newer chair and removing the first
two I had out there (now in the yard) I
use the chair more....with that said, I
have to watch my seat so to speak cause
if I get up I might come back to a cat
or a dog in that spot.
Yesterday, the 28th was my son and
daughter in laws anniversary.
Happy 7th anniversary
Cory and Britney.
This is one of my all time fave
pics I took of these two 7 yrs ago.
I even took the top portion of the
pic and made business cards before.
I hope you enjoyed the tour.
The worn rug.
And my fave Cory and Brit
Oh...yes, and the fact that I am
