❄ Oh My, It's December! ❄

Winter Glowing Green

I am highlighting one of my older themes but it is time tested and still a pretty good winter/Christmas theme.

I am happy to see I have some new followers. Thanks for becoming a follower and checking in on it once in awhile. You will probably see I am very sporadic at posting. Here it is 9 days into December and I just realized I still had Thanksgiving on my blog...Let us hope your Thanksgiving leftovers didn't last this long!

I am still working on updating themes and I did not realize I had so many Christmas themes and very few had been updated...so I am working on it.

My husband is doing very well....slow and steady. The Doctors have scheduled his kidney cancer surgery for late January. I am just hoping by then the soreness from all of his abdominal incisions from the October surgery are better. They are going to do this next surgery robotically also and there will be around 6 or 7 incisions but on his side. They also said this surgery will be 4 to 5 hours long and is riskier than the first one because there are so many blood vessels in the kidney. At this time they don't know if they will be removing just the growth, part of the kidney or the entire kidney.

Our Thanksgiving was very pleasant. No one brought up politics so everyone was speaking to one another and we all had a good time. Got to see a couple grandsons we don't get to see as often as we would like. Dinner was good and we did have some left overs! Which I do like...

Time to get the fire started for the evening so I will sign out for now.

Don't spend to much money on Christmas! But have fun shopping!

Small Setback!

1 Fall Country Farm

Well, everything was going along soooo sell and then last Thursday my dear husband starting bleeding so I took him to the ER first about 6:00 AM. They took tests, etc. and we got to come home. He stopped bleeding on his own and was taking it a bit easier. He had been splitting wood, etc and shouldn't have since it had only been 3 weeks since his surgery. Then yesterday the hospital called and said the culture had shown bacteria growing so he had to go on antibiotic and hopefully that will clear everything up. It just seems like we start thinking everything is going to be over soon and then you get kicked in the butt! We will overcome this, too. 

I found a new extension I am liking. I have sensitive dry eye syndrome so light hurts my eyes and I had been using an extension that darkens websites. I tried another one last week called Dark Reader. So far so good. If the brightness bothers your eyes, give it a try. I will keep you informed on which one I like best. 

I don't know why I keep working on new themes. I guess it is therapy! I have so many farm, country, cottage themes made so I should stop making them. They really aren't very popular because I think the younger users are into gaming, etc. and many have probably never set foot on a farm!

I am sure you have noticed that when you go to your Add On/Themes they are listed in alphabetic order, which I do like. BUT I wish they would leave the theme you are using on the top until you disable it. I have to test every theme I make after it has been accepted and on line. But then I would like to be able to go back to the theme I was currently using but you can't. So I am putting a number 1 or 2 in front of a title so it will be at the top of my list. Because lets face it, we all have at least one theme, we really, really like.

My Fibromyalgia has really acted up lately. I don't know if it is stress or cold weather since both aggravate it. I am trying Tumeric to see if that will help the inflammation. Most of the pain is caused from inflammation they say. So we shall see. I never found anything that ever really helped in all 30 years I have had it. 

I am finding it hard to get into the spirit of Thanksgiving. I am so thankful that my husband is here and doing pretty well. And thankful that our family is doing well and are so close. It isn't that, it is just that I am so tired...the thought of doing all that cooking, etc. is kind of hard to get excited about. But have to get into the spirit of it by the week end because I have to really get to work...

Well I had best get to work. Almost time to figure out something that is very healthy for dinner. I would be satisfied just having a smoothie but have to cook for my husband. I find it hard to think...

Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather and is happy and healthy.  

If I don't get back before Thanksgiving...have a great one and hopefully you have family to share the day with.

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!

Thankful Thanksgiving Owls

😍😍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.
