Been busy...

Over the past week during our staycation I...
  • went on a day trip to Niagara On The Lake
  • went on a day trip to Olcott (little beach town on Lake Ontario)
  • went wine tasting...yum!
  • ate out ALOT...yum!
  • painted my son's room
  • painted my nightstands white (they are 4 cubes that were painted dark green)
  • put together a new bed frame we bought from IKEA (bought for my room...we never had a bed frame, just the standard one that you get when you buy the bed)
  • painted the basement door with magnetic paint and about 6 coats of white paint...still need to do the other side and the chalkboard paint.
  • mailed my computer to HP...not waiting patiently for it to be returned to me.
  • trying to catch up on my favorite blogs & e-mails on this SLOW laptop
  • went to PA to pick up the kids, stayed 2 days
  • have been doing the happy dance all week because I won a photo contest over at A Cowboy's Wife. Just waiting for the package to arrive with my new Flip Mino HD Video Camera.
Did I say I miss my laptop terribly? I can not download photos in this laptop and I hate the regular PC in the basement. Yes, I am aware I should not complain, at least I do have another computer to use...but I love my laptop. I did download some photos I took on our day trips and put them on my thumb drive and some CD's. I just need to fix them. I can not wait to share Olcott & Niagara on the Lake with you. Both places are rich with history and we had a great time. Here is a photo I took in Olcott...straight out of camera. Hope you have a great week!

Wow! That's a lot of things you did in one week! I especially liked the wine tasting and eating part.

Hope your computer comes soon. Have a great week ahead. :)

Hi Melanie!

I love cosmos, it's one of my favorite flowers! That's a gorgeous photo! Oh! congrats on winning the camera! YAY!!! :o)

It sounds like you had a fantastic time on your staycation, and a very busy one too!

I've been dying to tell you that I made your hot wing dip last week, and my guys went hog wild eating it for 3 days. I made a large batch and they just had a party! Thanks so much for sharing that great recipe...it's a definite KEEPER!
Next, I'm making your potato soup!

Hugs, Paulette :o)

Well that picture is GORGEOUS! Love it.

I was without my "real" computer for 2 months last winter and it about killed me trying to blog without access to my pictures.

Wow, you really did a lot. I was going along at a pretty good clip myself, but haven't done much of anything for 3 days now.
