I'm up and running...not literally. :o)

Just look who I wrangled to help me with bountiful baskets on Saturday. Cole, my nephew Jeremy, and Cody. They were actually great help with sorting all the produce. Poor Jeremy has been at our house since Friday. He's getting a little home sick I think, so Mark is taking him home in the morning. Right now they are in the kitchen making sugar cookies...smells pretty good!
Cole went to cub scouts and built a mini candy dispenser like my big one...so cute. First thing he said is "mom, you're gonna wanna get out your camera" He was so anxious that he grabbed it and took his own pictures. He's obviously proud of his work. He also brought home a rocket that we are suppose to make by next weeks pack meeting...no pressure.

My very smart computer dude came over and got me all hooked up. I appreciate him so much! This windows Vista is a bit different and some programs are not compatible with it because it's so new...like my QK silhouette. QK is suppose to be coming out with drivers soon. Resizing pictures is not as easy as before and the new keyboard is harder to type on. I have way more typo's now. I know there's a lot to get use to, but just look at it!...It's beautiful and I love it!...is it wrong to love a computer, because I do? As you can see in the picture, the old one is still in here because we still have some stuff to transfer over. Soon I will have more room. Next, to try to install my clip art and hope it cooperates.
See what happens when boys pester the computer dude too much while he's working. :o)
Get a rope! LOL!
Anyone watch Big Brother? I have watched it every season. For some reason I'm hooked. I just have to say that I hate Jen. She is a wicked mean girl! That's all I've gotta say about that.
Thank you all so much for so many great book recommendations. I could feel your excitement and love of books through your comments and that got me excited too. The first ones I'm going to read are the ones Deanna is so kindly sending me. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

I'm with you on the distaste for Jenn on BB8! She needs to get packing and hit the road!

Kirsten said...

Big Brother is my favorite summer time guilty pleasure, and I HATE Jen. She is mean. Really mean, and just plain nasty.

Congratulations! What a nice computer! I still wish we had a bountiful baskets by us! My inlaws are getting berries through church, but nothing like what you get! Have a good day and try to stay cool...I know it must be just as hot out there is it is here!

I LOVE Big Brother! And I so HATE Jen! I hope she gets the boot next week. As for tonight... I'm hoping Joe goes home because I find Dick entertaining (especially his interactions with Jen!)

Jacquie said...

Evil Dick? I say Evil Jen! That hag has got to go, she gives nasty a new meaning.

Enjoy your reads.

Love BB. Got myself a new computer also. My daughter gets a nice discount where she works *smile*

Take care,
Love,

Glad the boys went to help you.
Your computer looks great. I'm sure it won't take you long to figure it out. You're a smart girl. I had to laugh at your "computer dude" tying up the boys. They obviously like him.
Tell Cole he did a great job on his candy machine.
I too love big brother too and I can't stand Jen. Now that Dick is HOH she will be on the block for sure.

Hey there!! finally got time and patience to figure out why it wasn't let me comment...Loving everything you are blogging...keep up the good work.....

Melissa said...

Yay for the new computer! And I love the flat screen - we just got a couple (Jason uses two monitors for some of the work he does) and it makes a BIG difference on the desk!

Coleen said...

BB is also my guilty pleasure. I love seeing how they interact. I hate Jen but love the sparky dynamics between her and E.D. he is something else huh?

I can't stand all her shirts!!
They are JENoying
