A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING

That's right, there is a whole lot of nothing in my head these days! I have actually been deep in thought and doing a lot of soul searching. I guess that's what turning 60 does to me. I am working on a post about it but it may be awhile before I actually get it together. Thank God for the memes I do or maybe you wouldn't see much of me.

I went on Pinterest yesterday morning and all my boards were out of place! What's up with that? It took me about half an hour to get them back the way I like them.

What is the price for FREE? Well yesterday it was about 3 hours. There was a freebie at Veggietales but they were so overwhelmed with people that it took me forever to finally get the order placed. I did read some blogs while I was waiting.

Ever since Windows wanted me to do an upgrade blogging has not been easy. I really have to jump through a lot of hoops to get posts together. I can do them quickly on my netbook but then my pictures are not there. Also since the upgrade photobucket runs really slow for me so it takes a long time to get my pictures ready for my Debby's Tree blog. Needless to say I have been a little frustrated.

I haven't even gotten around to taking pictures of Skye for Halloween. I guess you will see them when you see them! I think the fact that we have been having some things breaking down around the house has fueled my frustrations.

There is a new post at Debby's Tree . Check it out....it's a mystery!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend. We have plans to go to the Apple Orchards on Sunday with the kids. (our adult kids)

I think right now everyone is frustrated with the blog - all with different things I suppose.

Again - the price is free.

Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween.

I have a whole lot of nothing to say these days, too...must be the time of year. Hoping to get some good pics of E tonight in his costume, though....maybe that spark some creativity in my mind!

Nichol said...

That sounds frustrating! We are very busy this weekend with Halloween festivities for the kids, fight night tomorrow, relaxing Sunday and having a nice dinner. I am so behind and will never catch up, you want some of my work? Have a great weekend Debby!

Soul searching can be good I've been doing a lot that lately.

Sorry you are experiencing thing breaking down and the frustration with the repairs or doing without some things. I hope things get better soon and that you feel perky and strong.

Happy weekend to you too, Debby!

I can relate to the frustrations with blog. people have emailed to tell me blogger wouldn't let them comment. Take gentle care.

EmptyNester said...

I've got some frustrations too...just not sure what they are or why. Time of year? So much to do I don't know where to start so I don't. Maybe I should just break down and eat some Halloween candy. LOL

I look forward to that post of your ponderings Debby, when you get it together! I know what you mean though about thank goodness for memes, they are easy to do to post something now and then. I find it hard sometimes to get the time to write a post these days myself. I bet the apple orchards will be find this weekend! I do think it is neat that your kids like to spend time with you! Enjoy!

I did a upgrade to internet explorer 9 and blogging would not work for me. I did a system restore that didn't work so I redid my computer back to factory. I had to save all my pictures to disks first. Trish

nancygrayce said...

Hate upgrades! They always mess me up! The same whole lot of nothing is going on here too!!!!

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Oh, these darn computers are our sunshine and our rain aren't they. Upgrades make me crazy, kind of like a new computer and getting it set it. :o)

I'm there with you on being 60. I will turn 60 next July and I'm giving it more thought than all the other 59 I've had. Hummmm.....

Have a great time at the apple orchard. Blessings!

Karen Mortensen said...

I am with you. Hope things will improve for you. I am starting to feel better.

Garden of Egan said...

It has been interesting to say the least to be able to navigate the blogger.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Heather said...

Upgrading your computer/operating system can be so frustrating and time consuming! It is going on two weeks now that I have had my new computer and I am still trying to get everything set up the way I want it. I feel your frustration! And I hope you are able to sort everything out so it starts running more smoothly for you!

Debby, you really should try Windows Live Writer for posting to your blog. I was so afraid to try it, but once I did, I wouldn't go back to posting through Blogger. laurie

Just Be Real said...

Awww Debby. You had plenty to say. Looking forward to some pics of the apple orchards. Blessings.

I hope you were able to shake off the computer dust and enjoy the orchards and hope your week-end turned out to be rich and filled with enjoyment!

I don't like having to do changes in my blog - I just want to post and not have to do anything else.

Joyce said...

There are seasons in life and sometimes a little soul searching is good.

Hope you had fun at the orchard!

Brandy@YDK said...

i'm sorry. i hope you don't get too down.

Kristin - The Goat said...

I don't use windows, so I haven't had that problem - the Photobucket upgrade, I got that, too. I haven't had any problems with PB since their upgrade. It might all be related to the Windows update you did.

I'm sorry you're having so much trouble.
