Monday - and other rants

OK Blogging fans
I cannot for the life of me upload any photos. I can barely stay connected to the internet. DH is considering switching from Bill Gates to the BIG APPLE. After more than three weeks of continuous frustration I am standing behind his thought process. Seems that the Anti-virus that we have paid good money for and the anti-virus that Microsoft has installed through the updates do not speak to one another.
A little narcisstic if you ask me.
Narcissism is defined as “A psychological condition characterized by self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem,” and is seen as “a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development.” (American Heritage Dictionary)
I had hoped by now that Mr. Gates and his gang of computer geeks had learned to play well with others. Not so much.
Self serving.
On the soccer front - Grand Daughter tied in her first game of the Spring soccer season.
On the gardening front... I planted 9 day lilies last night. Hope they are thankful that I did that because I used any reserve energy to plant them and then when it was time to go to bed I was wide awake. Ice pack on the knee and wide awake. Nothing like the rush of good weather to keep you going like an energizer bunny.
We bought a Virbinium last fall. It is blooming. It smells like a gardinia and magnolia combined and I hope that is blooms all summer. It is the best for what ails you unless you have allergies.
On the decking front DH is done with the framing except one set of steps. The electric is almost to the barn because the solvent leaked and melted a connection or two. Yesterday we started decking with the Veranda material that is a really neat color. Only two screws to a joist. and it looks really great.
I cannot upload pictures but that did not stop me from linking to websites that held pictures of what is going on at the place that was once known as Locust Lake.
How far we have come.
How close the Lord has held us throughout this ordeal.
How safe a pasture He has laid before us.
How He loves His children!
Have a good Monday

Sounds like a bit of a Blogger bug too. You might be able to host your photos at photo bucket?
