The Computer Was Down.

September 3, 2011 at 3:48 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

We had this storms a couple of nights ago, I was online and I had a power surge. The computer went off. My friend calls tech. support through my cable company. A technition came out tonight told me I had something wrong with my hard drive. I was upset because the computer I use belonged to my deceased son. I want to keep using the computer for as long as possible. I went to the neighbors behind me, the neighbor had the computer fixed in 5 minutes. the technition was her for over an hour tonight. I am blessed I have my computer back now and I can update all my websites.

I have submitted a couple more stories to magazines. I also signed up for my clesses I wanted to take. The first class is September 20th. I will be learning more how to free lance write articles and how to blog better. I would like to be able to blog stories people want to keep reading and coment on. 

School starts already Tuesday. I can’t beleive summer is already over. I have always liked the fall of the year more than any other season we have in the Northwest. i like the changing of the fall colors and the cool crisp air. I like the first time I have to put on my jacket. I love to take fall drives and see all the changing colors.

I had a good week. I will find out tomorrow if Imy lastest story is printed in the Good News paper. I get excited when I see a story was published. I get great feed back when my friends read the stories. People tell my they are inspired by my stories. I am glad friends kept telling me to get my book published and write some stories for magazines. I never thought it would be this good. I look forward to what this season will bring in my life. Jeff and I will turn 50 in a couple weeks. I am ventering into some classes I never thought I would take. One is on Voice overs on the radio. The other class I will be taking is Making movie magic. I want to learn how to make movies and put audio and narration to the movies. It is shaping up to be a great fall of the year for me. Hey I am back ibn school to. I just didn’t have to spend a ton of money on a new wardrobe.

The Falls Park

June 26, 2011 at 7:52 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

I have just gotten back from the Falls Park.265 lbs of water travels through the dam per minute. That is a lot of water. The reason the park and boat launch is still closed is because our dam is relieving the flooding in North Dakota. The water eventually flows into California.

I have not been to the Falls Park in a couple years. The last time I was there, Jeff and I went to check it out. He was impressed as well. I love that the kids can fish all day from the bridge and there are plenty of trails to hike on and a nice big play ground offered as well. I used to take my kids when I owned a day care center(my youngest day care child is a jr. in High School) I would let them play, and look at the water, have lunch, then go home for nap time.

Some of the kids reading this will say “yes,that is what we did.” plus going to the library in the afternoon. That is how each child could play computer games or read books. It has been so long ago it seems since I owned the day care. it is fun to see the kids now and see how they have grown.

I planted some plants yesterday. I hope they live. I have a real black thumb. And I do water. it is a standard quote to tell me. I am trying to compact my bushes in my flower bed tight, so I don’t have to weed as much. We will see.
