Last Monday when the future of my blog was in such jeopardy, I bought myself a bouquet at the grocery store. I only do this a few times a year.
Most of the flowers have dried up in the garden due to the high winds and the heat. I just needed a little lift, though it was $12 I didn't need to spend.
This afternoon I had sweet Miz Marley over while her mother took care of some business. They were on vacation in Florida for ten days, so I haven't seen her in a few weeks. I so enjoy that child!
Last week when the internet, phone and TV were out due to the winds, I cleaned up this office. It had been piling up since I got hurt over a year ago. I dug in and purged a lot of things.
While I was at it, I took one of the desks (there are two) in here and created a desk space for Marley. I put a lamp on it and gave her lots of scrapbook paper and punches. Colored pencils and such.
Today was the first time she saw it. I think she felt important with her very own desk.
It is very hot and humid here. Marley and the dogs and I went outside. I tried to take a few photos, but my camera lens fogged up as soon as I took the cover off of it. So we went back inside. She curled up on the couch under a blanket and watched PBS.
I remember when my daughters sat and watched that channel. Thank goodness they still have it for children. She learns quite a bit from the TV shows on there.
I went back to the blog posts I had on Blogger a year ago. The names of the posts are there. But they are empty. No photos or actual posts. I don't know what happened.
I had copied and saved the WP posts and photos from the past year. I did that instead of transferring them because you aren't able to take your photos.
That has been a failure as well. The photos from those posts are gone and the posts are gobbledy-gook.
Maybe it was just meant to be. That's what I keep telling myself. No use crying over spilled milk. Just move on. And keep on moving on.
I want you to know how thankful I am for all your support during this time. So many of you tried to get the word out because starting over means you lose momentum. That is just so kind of you. Bloggers are so giving and helpful. Don't know what I'd do without my buds!
From the bottom of my heart, as always, I thank you all.
