So I have been schooled now in the power of Windows Live Writer. I have been wondering how all you blogging ladies have been able to do posts with so many pictures and such nice style and I am pulling my hair out with the limited four pictures from Picasa or the slow, always failing picture upload from Blogger…

Thanks to the lovely Rhoda from, I have found the world of Windows Live Writer. Of course, I have some sort of curse on my head, so it failed like four times trying to install, but hey, I made it here. I didn’t make it to the gym because I refused to leave my computer until I figured this out. But hey, I made it here. So here is a few pictures just so I can get a sense of what this is really all about!


Okay, that was really amazing and easy!!!!! Woo hoo! Oh, and in case you are wondering, that is me on the right, my sister, my stepdad and my two girls after we finished a walk for Lymphoma a few weeks ago.
Okay, lets see what else I can insert super easy…


These are the pewter pieces I got at one of the auctions. I think that they will become part of my Thanksgiving mantel I will be working on next.

But first, I really think I need to find a new template for my blog. This one leaves the posts too thin and a little bORIng!
You may all get sick of me now if this is how fast I can do a posting!!!!!!
Have a great day, I have lots of posts in mind for this week, let’s hope I can get them all done.

Oh, yeah, can anyone tell me how I can add the “you might also be interested” links at the bottom of my posts? I know I saw them at one point and can’t seem to find it again.

And as you can see, I am still have trouble with the spacing I put in between paragraphs and pictures showing up. What am I doing wrong??!!!??? Any help would be appreciated.

UPDATE: AS YOU CAN SEE I KNOW HAVE ADDED THE "YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE LINK (THANKS TO MICHELLE AT EMERALD COVE!). Okay, scratch that!!! When you go into individual posts the comments are overlapping with the "you might also like". I am changing my template in the next few days, so I am going to stop hurting my head and assume that it is a template issue. Thanks anyway Michelle, I will try again when I change the template!
