πŸ‘Œ Everything is Great

F-fox Gumball Bright

I have some time to catch up on my blog and it is all good. My almost 84 year old husband came through a very serious 4 1/2 hour surgery with flying colors. And everything is going very well. He just came in and said he was going on a hike! He has to get his blood count back up and his strength. In a month we go back and will see about getting the small cancer in his kidney removed. I feel so grateful and happy. If someone would have told me we would be in this place last July, I wouldn't have believed them. But he is an amazing man and I am happy and proud to be looking ahead to our 63rd wedding anniversary.

I have actually found time to make some new designs using some of the newer Firefox logos. And I so enjoy making the fall themes because of the bright colors.

 Thanksgiving Farm

Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away and I will be having our usual Thanksgiving dinner. This will be the 61st Thanksgiving dinner in a row I have made. The first few I made were not turkey but venison that my husband had shot. As you know (if you have been reading my blog for awhile) we lived up in the mountains east of Everett, WA. My husband worked for the United States Forest Service so we lived close to the work! We loved it up there, over 11 miles from town and our nearest neighbor was over a mile away. So our kids were raised in a far different life style than most. But they learned how to play with each other, work together and not have to be taken to ballet, fancy birthday parties, dance, and every other thing that kids have to do now. They learned how to be without electricity after a snow storm. And we had a lot of those. My husband would pack water in buckets from the creek for our water supply because the pump wouldn't work if the electricity was out. And we had a lot of snow storms, but it was a beautiful soft snow that didn't drift like it does up here close to the Canadian border. 

Wow, I got off on a tangent there, didn't I?

Back to Thanksgiving....I have used the same menu and cooked the same things from the same old family recipes. I don't make near as much food anymore because aunts, uncles, and cousins came to dinner, and my parents and grandparents. Most of them are gone now, and missed. So it is a much smaller group. And I get much tireder when it is all done!

We have been having great sunshiny weather for November. Which is unheard of. November is usually our wettest month...and it sounds like we will be getting some rain this weekend.  

I am still working on theme updates and actually removing some of the old ones that weren't very good and no one uses. I should probably remove even more. So many of the new themes are made in Firefox color and are all so similar. I can't use Persona Plus to test my themes anymore and I really am upset about that. Using Firefox Color to test themes is not very user friendly. Plus you can only test so many and then I have to either delete the storage of remove FC and re-install it. They are supposed to be updating it soon so it may get easier.

Going to sign off for now. I hope you all a very good weekend and don't spend too much money Christmas shopping!

😍😍SUCCESSFUL SURGERY!😍😍

😊

Just wanted to post quickly that my husbands surgery went very well. Took 4 1/2 hours and he is very sore and in quite a bit of pain. Got to bring him home yesterday and he had a really bad night so probably should have stayed one more night. The Doctors and nurses have been so helpful and kind. But they were working with a very wonderful  man. Thanks for all your hopes and prayers.

Be back soon....Have a great weekend!

🦊 Themes on Android 🦊

October Road

October 22nd was supposed to be the update so Firefox themes would work on Android. So many were having a problem with some themes on their Android. I just tried a couple this morning on my cell phone and they do seem to be working. So if you gave up applying a specific theme to your Android, try it again. 

While I am posting, I want to promote a specific product. As you all know I have had Fibromyalgia for almost 40 years. I suffered with it for 14 years before they diagnosed it! Anyway what with Fibromyalgia and going on 81 the fall weather has really made me achy and stiff. My granddaughter-in-law gave me a sample of a product her Aunt sells. So I thought I would try it and WOW! This is the first product that I have ever tried (and I have tried so many) that you can tell within a few minutes that it works. It is CBD MAG Muscle Mist. I can barely raise my arms above my head in the morning and I spray this on and it just takes a few minutes for it to dry and you can actually feel it start to work. 


I rarely do this but if you are suffering from aches and pains, etc. give this a try. 

I will sign off for now and get back to work.

1 Country Autumn Painting


I am totally amazed that it has been over a month since I have posted here. I am really sorry but it seems like there is so much to do and we have been having so many appointments, so time is flying.

We went from summer one day and cold, chilly fall the next. I am not kidding. It was super warm one day and the next day it was very chilly. And we haven't had any summer days since then. We had a very early frost, so my hanging baskets all got frozen. We had planned on trying to keep one through the winter and get it cut back and in the shop but that didn't happen.

I am still working on trying to get my themes updated. I have been working on that for 7 months. I am beginning to see the end though. I have removed some all together and probably should go through them again and delete more. 

Do you like the way your themes are displayed and using them from your Add-Ons? I like that they are arranged alphabetically BUT I wish they would change it so the last one you used would be on top and you could be able to be enable it again. Right now your only choice is Disable, Remove or Report. I posted about this on the forum but I doubt if anyone thinks it is that big of a deal!

Well, the day we have been waiting for, Oct 24th is coming up...We had one scare last week. We spent all day Sat. in the ER. So then we had to go to our family Dr. and he got my husband into the Cardiology within 2 days. Which is a miracle around here! And the Cardiologist gave him the go ahead and said he was at very low risk! We have just been having a hard time keeping his blood pressure down. Most every pill makes him feel bad...so I have been doing a lot of research online. I am putting apple cider vinegar into his water, etc. since they say it will work! We shall see. He doesn't mind drinking it, but I tried doing it and just could not do it. So his 5 hour surgery will hopefully finally take place this Thursday. I know he is dreading it and doesn't like the idea of being out/under for that long but that is how long they think it will take. I know he is strong and can make it. He has to...because I can't think of the alternative.

Well, I am going to sign off now and get back to work. Hope you all have a great fall week end. Our daughter is having our family all over tomorrow before surgery day. So that will be fun. And good for all of us.

The Waiting Game

High Velocity Fun Flowers

Looks like we are back on the waiting game for my husband's robotic surgery. October 24th is the earliest we can get in. So far he is doing all right.He has quit bleeding so that is wonderful news and he can begin to get his blood count back up. 

 A friend gave us a Vitamix blender and I have been having fun making all kinds of healthy protein filled smoothies. I have watched several videos and learned a lot. He needs to eat a lot of spinach and he was getting so tired of it! But with the Vitamix I can make 3# of spinach and a bit of water, put it in ice cube trays and throw it into the smoothie. So he gets a lot more spinach that way and you don't have to worry about it going bad in the refrigerator. We still have to get his blood count up but he is doing more and really wanting to to get back into his work routine. The sad part is he missed out on most of the summer weather. It is cloudy and rainy now and supposed to be a pretty wet winter. Not fun!

The technical people have apparently found the problem of some of the themes not working on Android phones and tablets. "It looks like this has been fixed and is set to go out to users on October 22. (If users are using a pre-release channel, this should be fixed for them on Beta68.2b1, Firefox Nightly 71.0a1, and Nightly 70.0a1)." So you guys can do a little waiting along with me and my husband!

Another Windows 10 update this morning, but I happened to find something in this one, I did not know and think I will love it. I am a silly old lady and just love emoji's. And have wondered how to put them in some things...Well you can right click the taskbar and  up pops a number of things you can do. I clicked on Show touch keyboard button and there it is.

I think I am so smart to check that out! I am sorry but I am such a "geek".

Thanks to all of you that are praying for my dear, sweet husband. Without him I don't think I could live. We have been together for 63 1/2 years and that is a very long time. Mostly all good, too. We have struggled with not having enough money most of our lives but most people do that. We have always been very self reliant and done most everything that needed doing ourselves and not called professional in (they cost $$). The night before his first scheduled surgery I turned the ceiling fan on and it wouldn't come on, so I got the step stool and got up to change the up/down of the fan and smoke started coming out of it! So we got everything shut down but couldn't get to trying to fix it until much later. As we figured it was old and broken, just like us! So we had to order a new one and instead of us working as a team and getting the old one down and the new on put together and installed, our son had to do it for us. We know he doesn't mind doing it but it is really hard for my husband to have someone else do something for us. When our son's and one grandson came to start cutting and splitting our winter wood (our trees that blew down last winter), he had tears in his eyes. I felt so badly for him...but I guess at 84 he is going to have to ask for help once in awhile. Although we are hoping after his surgery, healing and getting stronger he can get back to doing most of the things he wants to do.

Well, it is time for me to start thinking about what healthy foods I can fix for dinner. 

Thanks for reading my silly little blog and have a good week end.

SURGERY DIDN"T HAPPEN!

 Mountain Cabin Collage 3


I am so disappointed...first thing Friday morning the hospital called and wanted us there an hour early so we hurried around and got there. They took him up to Pre-op and wouldn't let me go with him so they got him all prepped and ready...then left him alone in the room so he could start worrying and get stressed out. So he started having chest pains so that stopped everything in the tracks.....No surgery until he was checked out in Cardiology. He spent the night being monitored all night and tests. Saturday morning they did a stress test and he passed with flying colors so now...we are back to square 1 on a wait for a surgery date. We waited 6 weeks for this one. Let us hope it won't be another 6 weeks. The only good thing is that his blood count is coming up every day. It was 10.3 on Tues. and by Fri. it was 11.7. so that is good and he is not bleeding anymore so we sit and wait.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers.

Till next time!
