spring has sprung

So I tried out the new posting edit options and hated it. I tried to post these pictures and write in between them and still can't figure it out. Normally I would pop into the html page and just insert the spaces, but the new options just wouldn't let me. I finally went and switched back. They've just got too many bugs in the new options that are hard to work with...and uploading photos is awful. You upload your chosen photos and then have to go back and choose them again to have them be put in the post. Of course, some of you may be using the new options and loving them, or may not even have ever used the old options. Maybe you can help me.

The top photo is my blooming hydrangea. The second photo is just a cute one of Lucy peeking out all cuddled up on the couch. The bottom two are the old roof and the new roof being put on. It's been raining here so much that I haven't gotten a new pic of the completed roof, so I'll post that once I get it. We should also have new shutters soon, so our house will have a whole new look.

I've also been sick this weekend. I started Saturday morning throwing up and it was not my best day. I vomited so hard that I burst some blood vessels underneath my eyes, leaving little red freckles behind. Luckily with my glasses, you can't notice them much, but I was startled to see them. I spent Saturday in bed, sipping Gatorade and sleeping. Ginger ale and more sleep. Interrupted by trips to the bathroom. It was a horrible day. Sunday was better, and today I actually took a shower and left the house, if only for a few minutes.

I know this post is totally random, so please excuse that. I also want to say thank you for those of you who signed up to read my novel chapters. If anyone still wants access to that private blog, send me an email at

Sounds like you have what I had yesterday! I didn't burst any blood vessles, though-yikes, but my stomach was bound and determined to empty its contents. Thankfully it was over in 24 hrs, but I have never had my skin hurt so bad. Ugh. Love the pics of spring and the pooch! I think we are going to have a beautiful week here in KS-finally!

We've been sick around our place as well! No fun! Hope you are feeling better! And I know the feeling about the new uploader... my pics will look all lined up and then I won't be able to write... my font tends to be messed up too! Not sure how it all works yet! If you figure it out, please let me know! Have a blessed Holy Week!
