To Pinterest Or Not To Pinterest

Good morning from Logan Utah,

This morning I have been thinking about Pinterest. It is a site that lets you make 'boards'. Well, pin boards..you can 'pin' pictures to them. You can make them about anything you want. Your favorite things. 

I know that is not the best explanation in the world. :) But that is all I know about it.

Anyway, I was wondering how many of you are on Pinterest and what do you think of it? What do you have on it? Do you like it? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

I guess we will be working on emptying boxes and organizing things today. Fun, fun...NOT lol

Well gotta run and make breakfast. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Take care

 Hi everyone,

Well, fall is sorta here in Logan, Utah. The wind is blowing a little. The leaves are falling. The evenings are cooler, almost too cool. 

We should take a drive soon to where we can see the changing colors of the leaves. 

Well, I guess this is a short and sweet post. I hope all of you have a great Monday and a wonderful week.  

Take my friends. :)

PS Well I am still crazy. It is now 5:40 am. I have not been to bed yet. I am listening to old devotionals and conference addresses. I couldn't watch TV today because I was away and when I was here hubby was watching the TV and didn't want to share the remote. lol 

My LDS blog will have a new post on it soon for those of you who follow. I want to tell you about what I got to do today. It was sweet an awesome. :)

Trying Something Out

Hi everyone,

I am trying out two things tonight. First I made what is called a Word Cloud on Wordle.net. Clink Here To Try It Out . And second, I am trying to insert it's html code into this  post.

The words I chose for this Word Cloud where from the Sermon on the Mount in the New Testament book of Matthew, chapter 5.
Wordle: Sermon On The Mount 

Ok I hope this worked right. Then I have learned something new and cool. I have to figure out how to have no background color or out of focus words. It is different putting this into a post than it is onto the sidebar.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Take care

Newbie Party at Debbie Doo's Blog Monday!

Hi everyone,

I hope your weekend was great.

For a while I have been interested in this Newbie Party that I was told about. A Newbie Party is for those who have been blogging for 6 months or less and/or have less the 100 followers.

Debbie Doo does a Newbie  Party each Monday. I have had a hard time figuring out how to get involved in it. I guess my  little brain has been too frazzled lately to understand what to do. She has posted today and new way to link up.  Either post her link or button.  

I will now try to post her button here:

If that didn't work...this is the link for her blog  

Ok, now to post and see if it worked. :)

If you are interested and would like to have more followers check it out ok? 

And by the way, Debbie's blog is wonderful. :)
Have a great week. Take care

S L I D E R S.....

Hi everyone, 

Does anyone remember the program called Sliders? It was and still is about four friends who "slide" through a spiraling vortex into parallel dimensions.  They always land on an Earth and always San Fransisco, (i think), their hometown.  Most of the time things are bad where they "land." Or they run into their doubles. And they have to stay there until their 'sliding' machine says its time to go. It can be hours or even days. It is kinda fun to watch. Anyway.....

I was thinking the other day that I felt much like a  'slider'  About eleven months ago I 'slid' through a vortex. It took me to a lovely place. A place where all the people I met were different from each other yet the same in that they all spent time on their computers 'posting' little stories about their lives, their families, their hobbies.  They wrote about the good times and the bad. The times when they or a loved one was sick and needed extra prayers. So they asked for this help. :) And everyone came together in one giant 'prayer circle' from all over the country.  How wonderful this place was. Then...


I got sucked out through this vortex and returned to the lone and dreary world. Lol  I have been in this world now for about two months. I want so badly to go back to this Utopia of a world. This Blogland. But it is so hard to get back. :(  

I used to always be thinking about something to write every day. I was always so excited to know that my boring little life was interesting to a few of these sweet people. :) And I was so excited that I was going to have comments and emails in the mornings. I even checked the internet on my cell phone for comments before I got out of bed. :)  It made my day.

Now I don't seem to have the 'Umpf' (sp) to do anything. Maybe it is that I can't have peace and quiet at the computer because for the time being the tv is right next to me and Mel is always watching it. ( we just GOT to get the other room fixed up) It is a storage room at the moment. Too many boxes to count. I think I have mentioned that before. I want to unpack but there is no place to unpack to. Or maybe it is because I have been feeling so crummy lately. Or both. Oh my goodness..am I whining? Sorry...

Anyway I loved this Blogland place and the people I met there and I want to go back.  Can some one help me, help me, help me pleeeeze. (how do i make music notes here)? lol ; -)

Maybe if all of you reach out your hands and grab a hold of me you can pull me back through the vortex, huh? :) 

Sure do miss you all. Take care...

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend.

We had rain over the weekend. It was wonderful. And it was sooo needed.  The days have been so hot for so long that this cool rain was very welcome. 

I'm not sure when we will be getting autumn weather for good though. I sure can't wait for that to happen. Because I just love to see the pretty colors of the leaves on the trees before they fall. And because next comes the cooler weather and the snow.  Yessss snow, I know it may be too early to talk about snow but I just love it and can't can't CAN'T wait for it to get here. :) 

Have you ever had cloudbursts to where it is pouring like this?

I remember going into Walmart and  later starting to leave and having to stay for at least 15 minutes waiting for this to stop.  And at the grocery store where I worked this happened once or twice too. So cool...

I sure have missed being here. Also after being away for a month it has been so hard to get back into the blogging spirit. I hope soon to have this under control. lol

I hope that all is well at your house. Please leave me a comment and let me know how you are doing ok?

Take care and God bless you all. :)
