As You Can See

Posted by on Apr 26, 2010 in The Blog | 15 Comments

I have switched over to my new website.  There is an extra step I am supposed to take while posting but I have forgotten what it is.  So if this doesn’t work out.  My Bad.

I like the site because it moves.  I like movement.  Took your suggestions about dating the blogs and returning “In the Media”  Still have to fully update the latter but we’re working on it.

You have to actually click on one of my paintings to see all my art work.  Once you get to Fliker after clicking on one go to ‘photostream’ and all of the ones fit to post (and maybe a few that aren’t) are there.

Ruthie, I don’t think we can transfer the old comments so we’ll just have to make new ones! My video tape is a little site tour.  (take a look at the shirt I am wearing – it’s one Vivian and her daughter helped me buy)

I am having fun with this.  Sometime this week (maybe today) Chuck is going to post a new “Back in the Day.”  This one would have been bitter sweet had I not looked so plain ridiculous in the last picture. I am not sure what Mom was thinking that day but she should have told me not to go out looking like that!  Usually she catches me before I make that kind of mistake.

My April surprise is delayed yet again.  I have been fooling around with this forever but finally found two women who knew what they were doing and could help me. I am such a control freak I always think I should do it all myself.  I need to take a Rule out of my own book and “Know when to holler for help”  It was more involved than I thought.  These ladies have been down this particular road before and are very detail oriented (unlike me).  So it looks like my April Surprise is my May surprise.  But it might actually happen now.

My next few weeks will be very busy.  I’ll be in and out of town a lot.

The other day I caught Boomy with four dozen eggs in his room.  He and his buddies had bought them at the store.  I confiscated them because I thought they were going to egg somebody’s house.  The kids still do that out here – along with TPing houses and dinging and dashing. I thought that went away years ago.  Old school mischief.  Gotta tell you, though it’s annoying, it is refreshingly childlike.

Anyway, he comes home with his buddies and asks where his eggs are.

E said “you can’t go out egging people’s houses.”

Boomy says “we’re not egging houses we are having an “Iron Chef Cook Off”

And you now what?  They did.  Nobody won apparently because everybody’s dishes were bad.

Anyway that’s the mundane rundown from Casa Toler.  Hope your Monday goes well.  Gotta do something I have been dreading.  I am such a whimp.  But I will be glad to have done with it.  I spend more time worrying about stuff that doing the stuff I worry about.  What a waste of time.

Happy Monday all!

    Are you going to get rid of the old site..those who had it bookmarked like I do..the new site doesn’t open…the address is slightly different with underscores vs. dashes. May just get a little confusing for those who don’t visit often enough to know what’s up.

    I actually like the new site now that the current blog is easy to find. Great work.

    Oh a story about Karma I shared it on facebook already..I noticed extra money in my bank account..I check online…and someone I had done business with recently credited me the billing amount plus an additional fifty five. They didn’t realize they had done it…the amount was 82 dollars..well the same day I get a thank you note from them…in the same stack of mail was a totally unexpected card from a long time friend with a check for 100 dollars for the animals. I got back more than I gave back. Totally kinda freaky the timing of it all.

    I like your art by the way…maybe one day you can do one for auction..just saying.

    Happy Monday…not cleaning much today..got kinda freaked out seeing people open my garbage bags and go through them…so not wanting to put more out there for them to go through…it creeps me out…yuck!

    Good morning Judge Lynn,

    I can see the post but not the picture of your new shirt. I don’t know what’s wrong maybe it’s on my end. I’m still using this dumb netbook.

    My prayers are with you as you travel.

    Ruthie, what a blessing!

    After this week, I probably won’t be blogging here for a while. I’m going to have surgery soon. Don’t know the exact day.

    Have a blessed day everyone.

    Ravis good luck with your surgery! Hope you have a speedy recovery!

    A. Rogers no I don’t do anything special with stuff I trash never had anyone sort through it before. Not sure they’d get far being me but I still hope that doesn’t happen..they were really dirty and looked really poor..think they were looking for tin cans and scrap metal…at least I hope that is all they took.

    Judge Lynn the front page changed and the first still blog listed is yesterdays..today’s is floating along with the others..at least in my browser..that’s the part I hateLOL

    I am not comfortable with the new site … so I don’t really feel inspired to visit &/or write on it right now. But that’ll change once I get used to it. And the worse part is I need my glasses to use it … the print is very small (well on MY laptop it is) and my eyes are getting old! Hi there Judge et al!!

    I hope that everyone is doing well and that the week ahead will be a good one.

    Spring cleaning today, but did not get a lot done. Busy weekend with an extra dog in the house, Daughter had extra work and projects due, Baby son had two parties, and my oldest son tells me that He will not graduate until December, had to help type a paper in APA form.

    Ravis you will be in our prayers!

    Good Day Everyone!

    So after spending approxiamately 2 hours navigating the blog I am ready to comment. I must say that I love i though.

    Hi Phylis! <3
    School is getting better. I am practically on vacation. I only have to attend classes that are administered by Cambridge.
    The downfall is that exams begin next week. When it's all over I have 4 months vacation. Yipeee!!!

    They egg people's houses up there? Oh My! That must be fun.

    Looking forward to the surprise Judge Lynn. I know it's gonna be a good one.

    Happy Monday Fam!

    Hi yall, I just found the new page today (tues.) I’m slow or getting older, or both, This page to me is more organized and I like the change, for me change is good most of the time.

    Ravis, God speed!
    I have friend who has breast cancer and she is having surgery today, to repair some reconstruction that didn’t work last may. She is in pretty good spirits, but I can sense some fear in her voice. Tha’s expected.

    I will be visiting with her, and bringing My Mother’s Rules with me and gifting the book to her.

    15 has starting attending church services with me, he says he feels he needs to make some changes in his life. He likes it.

    Peace.
