Welcome come inside and select your drink. There is cofffeee, read and cold drinks as it is 81°F. Let us set outside on the patio. The birds have mated and are building nest . A pair of collared doves have their nest in the tree that shades our patio. We can watch the acreage in front of building. It was sold and 80 condos are being built on it.😱😧😢

A lot has happen this year and I have been very depressed as I got hit on all sides caregivers and it still going on, Amazon and Bob ‘s health. He has been in the hospital several times.😠😏😓


I have been using Franz 7 grain bread , a slice of pepper jack cheese and using the broil to melt the cheese Yum Yum. This bread can be used without road to g it for sandwiches. I can recommend HIGHLY. Franz main office is in Portland, Oregon. It will squash easy.c

Last month I got my notice from WordPress that  was starting my 4 year.

I have had 36,110 views, 743 followers, another 50 on Tumblr, the most popular day is Tuesday and hour is 8:00 PM. Books are the most best category. NetGalley ranks high along with floral. Thanks for all. WordPress blog means a lot to me as I age.

 I will be 87 July 6. My hearing and eyesight are bad. I don’t understand anything on the phone any more. I must depend on others for receiving food and going to the doctors. I have now caregiver can hurt you. It is not pleasant to look ahead. I am trying to adjust and not very successful. Bob will be 87 in September. We are both considered home shutins.

I needed more space on my kindle 🔥 so I brought a Kindle Fire 🔥10. A very bad mistake. I have had nothing but problems. I can no longer download a NetGalley file😭😭😖 on Amazon. I can download them on Overdrive 😇☺😆😍. There are some that must be read on Adobe Reader and there is no connection to it for the Kindle Fire 10. There no connection to Google. However, I can still read my email. I lost so much since I change over and Amazon has prevented me my using my old one be setting it factory settings. I have had 4 help messages to Amazon and I cannot deal with them any more. 😈😈😈😈😂😂

    Dear Betty Louise, congratulations on four years at wordpress. How wonderful!! It certainly is an avenue for meeting and making new friends. I have in some ways been a bit absent, distracted and sometimes I just don’t keep up. I am sorry to hear of the frustration you have experienced with your kindle. Understanding does not come easy to me when it comes to new technology. I have really enjoyed your sweet photos.. All we can do is try to age gracefully.. but not so easy when there is pain or discomfort. If I were having coffee or tea, I would invite you to join me. I will pray for you Betty and your hubby.. Stay well and be encouraged, dear lady!

    So glad to see you here Betty- it is so frustrating when our computers and kindles don;t do what they should! They are such an important connection to the world outside. I am sorry to hear Bob has been in the hospital- I hope you find a caregiver who is good and you both like. We are getting spring temps finally- the sun was out in full force today. Hope the weather there is good too. Stay well!

    • Thanks for the best wiihes. I am feeling better today than I have for a long time

        .. And happier days ahead

      • Thanks! I have very little time to read the social networks. I do most on my blog which is automatically place on Google+. I do book reviews to keep me busy and Amazon has really done a number on me. Good wishes to you and I love your pictures of the flowers.

  3. God bless you both Betty!💖
