Story Of The Week

Rascal Flatts concert on Friday and it did rain but I stayed mostly dry under an umbrella. Ted’s son Chris proposed to his girlfriend during a beautiful ballet that I can’t recall the name. It was so awesome and I was so happy to be there to see. She said yes, by the way.

Saturday, while paying some bills online, I had a computer scare that I want to share with you, so maybe you won’t make the same mistake that I did.

Story Of The Week
We had more outside time, completing the earth box planting and getting the pool opened and ready for Memorial day. The only ones that braved the pool were the kids. The water was like ice. We had blue lipped kids.

The Getting Better title is about the computer stuff. I learned how to embed the youtube video to the web site so you can view while looking at the show notes, and you will be able to click to it on Ravelry.

My lifestyle- Healthy living has been little better this week. Baby steps to get back on track.

Story Of The Week
This has been a week full of outdoor stuff, and it was nice getting the sense of summer. that is until Wednesday when it was in the 40s. We took the cover off the pool and working on getting it ready for the weekend. We also planted some of our earth boxes. All is still a work in progress.
I am also a work in progress. My healthy eating and living is not going well, but I start new every day, and am trying to figure it out.
