Hey Yall! I hope you all are having a good weekend. It has been cold and rainy here today. I have jeans, socks, and a sweatshirt on AND am wrapped up in a blanket. We really need the rain here. I have been watering everyday. I have enjoyed having a well so we don't have to pay for water. Just one of the perks of living in the Maine country.

Since I couldn't go outside and work, I decided to do a few things inside that I wanted to do. I finally got my grapevine wreaths from the basement and some silk flowers and made up some summer wreaths. I made a new one for the front door, one for the fence gate that opens to the golf course, and one for the side yard fence gate. They all turned out really good! I had found some wooden birds and hot glued them on. Very cute! I decided after a suggestion from Julianne, to go and take some pictures and post them to my blog and share them with you. So I take them and come right inside and transfer them to my 'puter and attempt to upload them to the blog. The pictures would not upload. What is up? It kept timing out. If anyone has a suggestion as to why this happening and what I can do, please let me know. Please! Help! Me!

Chris called a few minutes ago. The air conditioner in the condo is not working. He called earlier today to say that today was a hot day. Well of course it is. Air conditioners don't break on any other days. So I guess the heating and air people will be coming on Monday. Hopefully on Monday......

I found some old 5 foot shutters at a big yard sale last week. I originally bought four with the intention of making a folding screen. There were still 4 left there when I rode by on Friday, so I stopped and made them an offer and they took it. So now I have 8. Julianne said they would look cute as headboards for the twin beds. Yes they would and I may consider that. I really had my heart set on a screen. See, the lot beside our house without a house has recently been purchased and they told Dick they will probably begin building this summer. I wanted the screen to put at their side of our deck so we would have some privacy out there. We do eat out there occasionally and Dick and I go out and talk when he gets home and I just thought it would be good to have for that reason. Lots to think about!

Julianne got another scholarship today! It is a departmental scholarship and although it is not as big as the other, we appreciated every bit of it! Go girlfriend!!!!!

That is about all my news for now. I will talk to you later! Tootles!

franny are you trying to upload them from the little blue card or straight from the camera with a cable? cause in my experience lots of times the little blue card quits working when you put it right in the computer. i have lots of them that are no good any more, in fact one of our trips to italy is one of them. buggers...

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!! I think the screen idea is awesome for the deck! I actually use old shutters to display art when I do shows and let me just tell you that they are soooo versatile! I love them.
