Update - newsflash, hotflash and Flash Gordon! Woo Hoo - Lacy's comment sparked a brainstorm on Buhlaland, DH agreed that an external hard drive would be more useful than a stack of disks. SOOO - off to Office Depot we went - found what we thought was a pretty good deal on 320 Gigabyte unit - AND TA DA I have now transferred the picture files which were logging down my blogging - to the hard drive. Mission ALMOST accomplished - simply did not label everything but it is organized way better. Half done is good in filing and laundry - not at all good in cakes or cookies! Just wanted to keep it real here in Buhla-blogga-land! Love y'all - and appreciate your support in the neverending war against total disarray in Linda Sue's computer (and life? NAW!)
Soundtrack is optional - feel free to turn off the volume if you get irritated by music background for my blog post today - I personally thought it added substance to a somewhat paltry entry to the blogosphere!
My DH and his sweet mom gave me a better digital camera last winter so I make an effort to take pictures every day. My theory of taking pictures is a bit like my outlook on eating a good dessert . . . more is better thinking if I take a lot of pictures at least some are worth keeping.
All that rambling done - my computer files are about to become completely unnavigable, unsearchable and I fear at some point - inaccessible. This week I am committed to learning how to transfer all my older files to dvd's with appropriately descriptive labeling for each and every entry. Yeah right - anyhow - in going through the files I found some pictures I wanted to share. The shot of bright pink cactus blooms was taken some time ago, the cactus and planter were given to me by my Aunt Dorothy - cactus from her home at Lake Whitney. The cactus has totally outgrown the sturdy concrete container. We were given several bird baths (thanks Tom and Mary)and converted one bath into a cactus planter. One could say we are too frugal to buy a new planter but I prefer to believe we are being "green" minded - reduce,reuse and recycle y'all.
I like the way it turned out. Ok that's it folks - all this build up for three little pictures and my promise to organize files. I'll be back (said totally without an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent!) It is good in Buhlaland - especially since we got over 8 inches of rain this week!
