Just Catching Up

Hi, everyone!!

After just buying a new computer and having all the data transferred from my old one…and visiting my mom in Florida for 2 weeks….arghh!! I have ignored all you lovely folks except for what little I can do on my iPad while I’m away!

I’m now learning how things work on the computer…way faster, so I have to slow my fingers down so I don’t click on the wrong things! It is really nice to have so much more power to work with. So let’s see if I can still throw some photos at you!

Nope, sorry! I need to install an updated version of Adobe and my computer password from my old Mac didn’t transfer to my new one!! I guess I have to talk to the ‘geniuses’ at Apple tomorrow:)

In the meantime, Have a lovely Easter and know I’ll be back here soon.

Happy Easter!

Happy Parenting,

Joyful Thursdays #57

What brings you joy, makes you happy, gives you peace? Here are some photos, quotes, and thoughts that make me joyful.


Joyful Thursdays #57


Here are three things that make me happy and bring me joy:


1) I LOVE the apple store!! The folks are so helpful….1st thing: they updated my ipad from a 4.something to a 6.something (that’s my technical expertise talking there).. wow! amazing! totally redone like a brand new ipad. I’m soo impressed!

went in just hoping for some extra speed...

I had to reinstall mail, etc.....but now I can get all the apps I couldn't get before!! Free:))

2) the issues I was having with my computer were actually because my router wasn’t working properly, so got rid of the old:

and moved to the new:

3) thinking about a new computer and phone:))))  The phone is 4 years old and SLOW!!! The computer is well over 5-6 years old and has been updated, tweaked, and babied long enough! I’ll let you know what happens!


There’s my technology review for you…from this non-techie to you!!

Sunday Mornin’

Whew! I had an issue with my computer….couldn’t access my own website!!! Arghhh, that was a wee bit frustrating! So Thursdays Joyfulness just went directly to FaceBook instead…and even then, not until Saturday.

Today, talk of Bob Seger:)))) We went to his concert in Toledo! Have you been to that arena??? Wow! We usually go to the Palace and have seats where the performers look like ants. This particular place is small and lovely. We were on the floor 16 rows from the stage, with wide aisles between every 10 seats. …And the seats not on the floor-only about 20 rows total! It is so impressive!

getting ready!

this is how far from the stage we were...

just waiting...see how small the venue is!!!


Friday night was the 2nd of at least 20 performances by the amazing Bob Seger and his equally awesome band! His voice was the best I’ve heard, mellow and smooth, singing most of his classics and a few new tunes.

Seger singing:)


Thanks to my 4 sweeties for a most exceptional birthday present…just spending time with you is always my favorite thing to do, but throw in a little Bob Seger…wonderful!!!

my birthday gift

Have a delightful Sunday…enjoy your family:))
