I'm so disappointed, I wanted to share some more pic's with you all this morning, but my Picasa account says........ 

Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos.

Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between several Google products and is in addition to your free quota. 

I don't even know what a Picasa account is except that's where my pics must be stored.

My Question is....How do I delete pics from my account and if I do delete them will they be deleted from my blog?

I guess the next thing for me to figure out is how to change the size of my pics before I upload them so they don't take up so much space.

Yikes!!! So much to learn.

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks from One Very Confused and Frustrated Blogger! 

I hope you are all having a blessed Wednesday!

Toby Mac

I couldn't figure out how to post a video before.
So here is Toby Mac Live.


Counting My Blessings

I'm Counting My Blessings Today!

I am blessed that hubby's knee is on the mend and got the okay from his Dr yesterday, so he's driving himself to work this morning, first time in two weeks. No crutches. Yay!

I am blessed with a wonderful husband and fantastic kids.

I am blessed by our ever changing view of the mountains right behind our home.

I was blessed to spend time at  the Winter Jam Concert with two of my daughters on Friday night.
 It was an amazing concert and Toby Mac was well worth waiting for.

I am blessed that I had to put the heating on this morning for the first time this year, which means the cooler weather is on it's way. Fall has arrived. :D

I am blessed with wonderful friends and love making new friends.

Hope you are all having a blessed week my friends. What are you being blessed with today?

Craft/Guest Room Makeover

The craft come guest room make over has begun.
Deciding on a color to paint the walls has taken longer than I thought.
In fact I text a friend and said "Help! I'm in a paint chip overload!"

I think I've kind of narrowed it down.
The postcard I brought back from Port Isaac, Cornwall is my inspiration.
Isn't it beautiful it's from a local artist called Katie Childs

Sunday before Hubby's knee surgery we destroyed the old closet and built in dresser.

It felt good to get rid of the old closet.

Silly me thought I could get some work done while Hubby was laid up. 
What was I thinking?

So instead I've been doing lots of day dreaming and drooling over pictures and plans on Pinterest, and after lots of pinning, I dropped a bombshell on Hubby of all my ideas and plans.... he wan't too happy at all the work I'm going to be creating for him at least at first.  I want to move our office into the craft room closet and put in a breakfast nook where the office is now. I have to remember to deliver these ideas slowly, and maybe one idea at a time! ;)

Want to see some of the pic's I've been drooling over? Of course you do! :)

I love the Bistro curtains in this photo.

The color of the walls, the table, the layout of the benches! 
Simple Gorgeous!

I Love the table in this photo.

(my apologies as I can't remember where I found this photo)

I Love the storage that this photo shows.

This is something I'd like to do with my craft room closet.
Guess where I will be visiting with my coupons very soon!

Happy Monday and I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed week.

A Little Down Time.

Monday my hubby had Knee Surgery! Poor guy has been laid up all week and I have been running around like crazy, getting ice packs, pain meds, T.V. remotes, drinks, cell phone etc. etc.etc.

I did manage to find some time in the evenings to finish this blanket that I've been making for my friend's son, who started it months ago after I taught him the basic stitch, and he asked
 if I would finish it for him when he went away to college. 
Below is just after I started the blanket towards the end of September.

He bought the yarn so long ago we couldn't find anymore of the blue or beige.

So I worked with just the brown and black yarn and found in my stash of yarn a little cream with 
brown flecks that worked to break up the brown and black stripes.

I think it worked out well. I hope my friends son is pleased with it too.
He comes home from college this weekend.

Well, I enjoyed my little down time. Back to the ice packs.
