Just Some Random Life Pics

Making sure the Rose doesn't cheat during a breath holding contest.
Brand spanking NEW shoes just a few days old....sigh.
Learning the hard way that you can't take a frozen can of Fix-a-flat from the frozen mobile and put it in the warm mobile to let it thaw....unless of course you want exploding fix-a-flat in your cupboards...lol...and yuck!!  It smelled awful for days!
The view OF the couch.
Baby Man hears the chainsaw and can't help but to investigate and watch.
Sweetness
Columbus officiating over our last giveaway.
Feral five year olds stopped long enough in their antics for a photo.
Plumbing Princess...lol.  And that is a virgin plunger....Baby Man just HAD to have it one day at Walmart...he LOVES plungers, so it's never been used, not that a person would ever plunge a humanure bucket anyway....lol!!


Blogger pictures is still not working, which obviously I found a way around...kind of...I'm not used to this way so it's kind of a mess, but there are pictures and that makes me happy.

It was freezing cold last night.  It has been raining and then the rain froze so our mountaintop looked like it was covered in a clear coat of ice....pretty amazing.  My Man went down the mountain today to get space heaters out of storage so that we don't freeze at night when the fire gets low.  Last night was terrible for me breathing in all of that cold air in...not good for getting better.  I hate to use them because they are not affordable, but when it gets this cold there just isn't much choice.  Temp at 4:30 p.m.?....35 with a windchill of 29....yikes...I hate the cold.

  1. I love the pictures of the children playing. Plumbing princess...lol. I stay cold because my only heat is a space heater and I cannot afford to run it all the time or much at all. You are so right about unaffordable. I am freezing right now, and I don't have all the cuddle material, warm bodies, to sit on me and help keep me warm. Hopefully, you can breathe warm air. Maybe it won't get much colder, but knowing where you live, it probably will. Brrrr...

    Blogger picture problems are making me crazy. Also, I cannot see your followers or mine!

    1. Hey PP, I wish that you were warm. It always makes me sad to hear how cold you are:( They said this was going to be a bad winter, but so far I don't think it has been that bad. The kids are still waiting for enough snow to play in! If you get too cold you just let me know...I have a couple of feral five year olds I could send to you for a few days, or maybe even the rest of the cold season, but they don't sit much so you might have to duct tape them to you if you want their bady heat....lol!!!

  2. The pictures work but in a different way. For some reason they have made it easier to cut and paste directly from the web, and also using some other inputs, but have disabled the posting upload from your computer.

    Since you can post from your camera, I wonder if it is possible to set up a virtual camera on you computer and post from there.

    I suspect that part of the issue is copywright driven, and the other part is trying to get you to other Google controled sites.

    1. I don't want to put pictures straight from my camera to the blog. I need to put them in my Kodak program to lighten/crop/fix. I put a friend on as an author on my blog. She was able to post a picture the same as always. Blogger would not have left the option if there was no way to use it.

      I figured out another way, but why should I?

      I still cannot see my followers or followers on others' blogs. But, my friend could. ???

    2. It's weird and a pain. I don't really use pics from the web, so that doesn't help me much. I can't post directly from my camera - I have to load them on my computer, resize them and then load them on blogger...it's a job, I tell ya! Do they make cameras that just load the pics onto the computer?? That would be so EASY!!

  3. M,

    Nice random life pictures of the kids :-)

    Hubby setup a portable heater just for me, I can't seem to get warm. The joys of getting older and the change :P

    You need to let your hubby setup those heaters to get you warm, no need to have you getting worse with the pneumonia!!!

    Take care, stay warm!

    1. Aw, sorry you are going through the change....I'm not looking forward to that. I remember when my mom went through it....it was a little bit crazy. I hate to think of putting My Man and kids through that.

      The heater is set up and it's nice to have hot air at night...I can't imagine the freezing cold air AND being sick:(

  4. You guys need the wood burning stove that is INSIDE your home! My sister had one in the living room of her manufactured home and their problem was cooling the house down. The house was about 80 and heated the entire place if you left the bedroom doors open. Talking northern michigan where she got so much snow that she had to look up to see the kids on the snow.

    1. I don't know where we would put one IN here, and I really don't know where we would put one in a SAFE place for the kids....being chilly is a small price to pay for a little extra safety. This is a good stove, it's just at night when it is snuffed down that it gets cold.

  6. I hope you feel better soon!
    Your pictures are too cute! I'm having trouble uploading pics too, thanks to Sandy I can but it's not like it used to be.
    My husband said they are going to try and get rid of wood burning stoves! I don't know why they would do that. I would love one but we live in a modular home also and the hubs said we would end up burning the place down. I still would like to get one for his shop just in case we ever needed it.

    1. Thank you, Kelly.

      I like that our stove is not IN our mobile - it's scary enough attached to the mobile...these things are like matchstick heads. I've heard of them trying to get rid of them in cities, but I hope we are safe for a good long while here on the mountaintop. You might find a used one this summer for cheap and then you can have a backup.....summer is the best time to buy them.

    1. Hi Kim, When you are writing your post there is an HTML tab up in the right corner of where you write your post - click it and you can browse for pics and download them - it will just post the code for the pics, not the pics that you can see. You have to do them one at a time, but it beats no pics. When you are done dowloading your pics click back on compose and you can write your post. I haven't tried moving the pics around and where you start writing is weird, but I just haven't had the energy to figure all of that out. Good luck - whatever blogger has done is a huge pain for pics:(

    2. That was incomplete....when you click the HTML tab there will be the normal icon bar on the top - click the one for pics and then you can browse for pics to download :)
