What Was I Thinkin' ?

Over the past few days - and when I win the fight for a chance to get it done - I’ve been going over a lot of my content filed here at my blog.  And One of the things I’ve noticed is the fact that I’ve been forgetting to post my digital scrapbooking pages here - at my blog - the very reason why I began this thing!

I dunno - blame it on Facebook!  No - blame it on Picasa Web Photos… PhotoBucket… Flickr…  Ohhhhh, crap!  Let’s just sum this up in one sentence.

Blame it on all the resized and various formatted files I have to create every time I do a layout - simply because nobody in that area of the web can seem to get together long enough to put creative minds together and spare us all the agony - because - well - it would just be too simple and easy with only one file size and one file format - for every place on the web!

*deep breath*    -  * Whew! *

Seriously.  I end up creating a minimum of four files with three different file formats.  And there’s this other thing called - Life - that I have to keep up with.  Ya’ know - as a woman - it just seems like - no matter what the subject matter is - I am forever - picking my battles.  And the really crazy thing about that is - I don’t even like to fight!
So - I’ve started with the latest layout that I’ve managed to get put together.  From there - I’ll walk backwards - posting them in the next couple of blogs until I get caught up.

Hey - it’s still winter.  Might as well walk in a warm place!

arranged to have delivered to me - if I hadn't gone ahead and checked
our voicemail on the phone.  I called him to be sure, first, before
returning the call.  These days - you can never be too cautious!  How
else was I supposed to know anyone would deliver flowers all the way
out here?  He just laughed!

" I have wanted this thing gone for over a year now.
And Judd was supposed to come buy it and pick it up...
months ago !!


But Judd likes fishin' too much.  And he never got around to it.
But I guess Judd had more "mountain sense" than we have.
He knew we'd probably need it more than him - until we got our
wood-burning stove installed.


Judd was so right !! As much as I despise this thing...
25* for the high today and 13* for tonight is just cold enough
that even I will bend!  And this next week looks worse! "

"October 30, 2009 - We missed our annual trip to Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains to photograph all the beautiful 'Fall Color' that returns each year.  Instead - We count our blessings and feel thankful for all the 'Colorful Show' that arrived all around our home!"

" God help me.  But I despise winter.  And I'm not alone.
Our wonderful - lovable - lover of life - Zucker. "

" I never knew exactly how much I was dreading the oncoming winter season - until I had the moment of this vision.  Oh, how he loves to run.  How he loves to be outside for hours - and hours.  Becoming absolutely filthy - lathering with sweat - drinking up the water as long as somebody will fill the bowl - smelling worse than a dirty sock.  Every bit of it puts him in his glory of happiness. "

" It's as if he has come to recognize when the days of bitter coldness are approaching.  And one can't help wondering what he's thinking as he sits and stares out the window - watching the leaves begin to turn color and fall. "

" Dwayne and I decided to go ahead and pull this watermelon from my patch.  The stem wasn't quite finished turning brown.  But we were afraid to leave it out any longer. "


" Good thing we made that decision!  It was ready! "


 "So was another melon that we left out there for the time being.  That one split open by itself - on the vine - only two days later. "

- Photo caption reads -
" This melon weighed 44 lbs.!  We ended up taking over half of it down to our neighbors.  We sent one home with Dwayne's Mom and Stepdad.  That melon weighed 58 lbs.!  We sent another home with Charlotte and Wayne Greene.  But we forgot to weigh that one. "

Let this posting be a lesson to others.  It may look like I’ve been doing nothing.  But let me assure you - as you can see by photos plastered here - I have been fairly busy!

The funny part about all these pages - you should see the size of the files holding all the photos waiting in line!

I have been wanting to leave comments and tried for a couple of weeks now (it seems) without success! Yipee! Now I can leave comments again! (I'm not sure why I couldn't?????)

Your scrapping is beautiful! I love it!

Tammy

Thanks for the compliment on my scrapping, Tammy! Sorry 'bout the mess with the comment section. It was a good thing I decided to do some spiffin' up before things get too busy around here with planting, etc. I didn't even know it wasn't working!

Summer said...

Thank you for sharing this post!! I can't wait to see how the watermelons turn out! Brent cut another one open and we had streaks of red. I shared your advice, so we're watching the stems. Thank you again! :)
