Happy Valentines Day to All

Mozilla Firefox Add Ons

Brand Thunder

Valentines Day. A day to  remember the one you love and celebrate that love. I hope the design I chose for this posting will be enjoyed by all. I think it is kind of cool.

January is on its last leg and it has been a wet one here. I am surprised we don't have moss growing on our bodies. But at least it isn't ice and snow.

I have had to slow down a bit on designs. I didn't even turn the desktop computer on over the week end at all. And that is a first for me, in many, many years. My ophthalmologist diagnosed me with narrow angle glaucoma last week and I have to have some laser eye surgery next week. I already have optical nerve damage in one eye so I am hoping it doesn't get any worse. If this surgery is successful then they will do the other eye. 

I was pleased to get some great complimentary emails last week from people that are enjoying my work. Thanks so much. I read all of them and answer all I can.

Our oldest grandson stopped by Friday evening with his 2 little ones. What a treat! The 2 year old wanted the music turned on so he could dance, so we turned the stereo on and we were dancing. But it was time  to go home and he didn't want to quit dancing so I told him he could take the music with him. Well, when you say something like that, you don't realize what the child may think you are actually saying! I burn my own CD's so I opened the stereo and took the CD out and gave it to  him. But he kept trying to move the stereo, ( which is old school and a great big boxy thing with 2 big separate speakers). I kept telling him Daddy could put it in the van and he could hear the music but he kept trying to move the stereo! It took us a long time to figure out he thought he had to take the whole stereo with him to "take" the music with him. Over the weekend we laughed so many times remembering that. So I guess the motto is, think about what you say and what the child might "think" you are saying.

I hope you all have a great week and a Happy Valentines day. 

Till next time

Putting Christmas Away and Opening 2013!

Happy New Year 2013


Brand Thunder

Decided to update my blog and put Christmas away. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and haven't made any New Years resolutions you will break. I found out many years ago not to make resolutions because you are just setting yourself up for failure. And who wants to do that?
I can't believe I will be 74 next month. I must say 73 was not a great year for me. I am beginning to feel my age. Getting slower to get up which really irritates me since I have always been someone that moves quickly, works quickly and gets a lot done. Health wise I can really tell it, though. My eyes are beginning to give me problems which makes working on the computer a bit more difficult so I need to take some breaks. Which I find  hard to do. I don't like to quit working when I am in the middle of something. So there may be a few less designs this year.

Mozilla seems to have gotten into a slump, too. They can't seem to keep their pages up to date lately, so I am not submitting as many designs. Once they get up and running "better" then I will submit more.  

I am really enjoying the  Nexus 7 I won from Brand Thunder. It is amazing. You can get the Amazon Kindle app and I have read 5 books on it so far. That doesn't help my eyes any, either! I also won a $50 Amazon gift certificate from Brand Thunder so I got a nice case for the 7 and a stylus for it.  I have "tried" to play a couple games on it but I am not, nor have I ever been a gamer. So needless to say I haven't had much luck with games. They seem like such a total waste of time. And I don't find it is relaxing because I just get frustrated! 

Well, I am going to get back to work. I am working on Valentines Day already. Time moves so quickly anymore. 

Have a great week.
