I'm being lazy ----

So I am placing this post in several places:
I've been trying to get all my over 300 listings on eBay up to code. I've done and re-done so many times -I am going blind from the glare of this computer screen.
I was up last night and the night before- till after 1 P.M. working.
There's "technical troubl" there today- so I just gave up on it. I will get back to it later.
As all of you know, my Twin brother is having Vascular surgery tomorrow. So I will be up really early to go Memphis so I can be there for his surgery.
I would ask that all of you remember us in your prayers.
Another thing I wanted to pass along:
I was having trouble with my curser on my computer- it was jumping all over the screen- like it was possessed. I seemed to have no control over it.
I was telling my grandson about it and he suggested- I clean it, duh!. He told me to take the roller ball out and clean it with warm soapy water and dry it off really good before I replace it.I did that.
He also said take a pair of tweezers and clean off any residue you see on the internal rollers. (The internal rollers are the ones that touch the ball when it is in place) they collect dusty, sticky, -crummels (for the lack of a better word) I did that- and when I replaced the ball into the cavity of the cleaned curser, it preformed like new. I have control again! I had the most awful fear I had picked up a virus or something.
So if any of you are having that problem- try it and see if it works for you.
I gotta get up and do something productive. I am absolutely wasting this day.
I need to clean house or something.
Later friends.

As I set here this peaceful Sunday afternoon

I am listening to the lovely sound of Christmas music coming from the new Blog Dede of (Brightest Blessings) has created for all the members of Hand Crafters Cottage.
We owe her a great big hug and thank you for her hard work. She and Nancy do so much to help us get our messages and pictures of our crafts out to the web.
These ladies are so special and I certainly appreciate what they do, as I know we all do. So let's all get behind them and this Blog and help it grow.

It's been another rainy week-

I think it has rained every day so far. I sure hope we have a nice weekend.

I wanted to request prayers from all my friends- my twin brother has Aneurysms in the groin areas of both his legs. He is to have surgery on Thursday -of next week, for one of them. They want do both at one time- so the other leg will be scheduled for a later date. I am so worried. I was a Nurse in my younger days and I remember enough to know, this can be really serious and the danger it presents while you are waiting for the surgery. I wish it was going to be tomorrow instead of next week - but you know how it works these days, you have to wait for everything.
Just keep him, and me, in your prayers this week. He means the world to me.
I'm not ready to loose another member of my family-to death. I've lost my sister, a niece, and a special brother-in-law in the past 2 years. Just don't know that I can handle to much more.
Nothing much going on here, so this will be short.
Blessings to all of you.

Thanks to Dede of Brightest Blessings

we now have a excellent post about the Arts and Crafts Promotion.
here's the link to her posting:
I feel so blessed to have this nice person to go to for help- when I need it.
I tried to do a link in my Blog but that one wasn't clickable- hopefully this one will be.
Everyone help us with this promotion and register your links on the thread. It's meant to help everyone. If you have a Facebook account place a announcement there.
To anyone who reads this, have a blessed day.

It's rainy here tonoct and I have time on my hands

so I decided to do some work on my Blog.
I don't know what I will ramble on about but I will figure it out as I go along.
We have a great Promotional thread going on Bonanzle at this time. Montrose, a fellow Bona member is doing the promotion. He's great. There's been over 2,700 views last time I checked. He works hard to keep it going and keep us all informed. It will end on Saturday, the 26th.
I haven't sold anything yet, but I hope others have. I'm sure they have.
Here's the link to the posting.
I'd like to ask all artists and crafters who read my Blog to come on over and join in. You can post the link to your booth and get lots of visits and if you're luck, a few sales.
What else can I talk about- Well, I'm kinda excited about a trip to the mountains with my sweet sister, Alice, that we have planned. I think we might be going sometime around the end of the month. If we go I will write about it.
We want to see all the pretty Fall foliage. It's so beautiful up there during that time of the year. We stop at all the Antique Mall we pass on the trip up there and find a few more when we get there. We both love old things. She's likes the "high end" stuff and I like the "junk" -but you can see both in some of the places where we stop.
Can you believe- I spent good money on some mouth pieces that are on old horse harnesses- Now that's "junk" and I bought all I could find. They weren't cheap either. I use things like that on my bird houses- so it was a treasure to me. I have lots of "junk" treasures.
I can't believe it's just 9:45.
Did anyone see Americas got Talent last noct. I was tickled to death when the country guy from Kentucky won that million dollars. I think his name was Jason Skinnerd. He was just so sweet and a country boy through and through. He needed that million dollars and I'm glad he won. I sure was rooting for him. Now he can give his family a better life- if money can buy a better life.
I don't think money is what make a better life myself- as long as I've got enough to live on, with just a little extra-I'm happy. It would probably just be another complication for me if I had it.
When you have a nice home, with a loving family, good friends and plenty to eat, who could ask for more. I have all those things and "life is good".
