Microsoft At It Again
There are lots of angry bloggers out there including myself at Microsoft . The company made a big mistake with Windows Live Writer making it no longer compatible with Blogger or BlogSpot big mistake guys ! Lots of bloggers like myself rely on Windows Live Writer to do their post on and then publish to their blog . I myself am angry they have done this ! The CEO of Microsoft Scott Hansleman has had many tweets , facebook and blog comments on his blog about this including from me ! I told him that I had been using Windows Live Write for years to do my posts and publish them to blogspot and have been very happy with the software and it is a crying shame to muck about with a good thing and why would one do that anyways . I also said that this will loose them a lot of users . So that was my input to it all I also told them to get it fixed ASAP ! lol !
I am giving this post a trial and error run to see if I can write the post here on Windows Live Writer and copy and paste to blogger post template and see if that will work for now !
Any who I have been gardening and busy out doors . The weather has been lovely . I will see how this post does first then I will get photos up on the next . As I see here copy or cut and paste does not do what I want no fancy font or anything just boring blogger font BOOHOO !! Oh well I hope they get Live Writer up and running soon !
Until next time .

A mixed bag of all sorts for these three days of this and that . Were to begin ?. Lets see… oh yeah Miggs and I Friday went for a lovely early morning walk the birds were singing Miggs was doing a lot of stop and sniff so there was a lot of come on Miggs lets walk lol , the breeze was blowing a nice fresh scent of Lilac trees and bushes in the air and the sun was shining , how wonderful . We were on our road just a few minuets from the house and I saw what I thought was a big leaf in the grass then I got closer and realized it wasn’t a leaf but a large moth a Polyphemus Moth and a pretty one to.
The poor thing was struggling to fly so I let it climb on my sleeve and carried him home and put him in my garden in the sunshine on one of my flowers . The moth stayed there for quite some time but sadly he passed away . My day was a bit off because of it I just wished I could of done more for this wonderful creature !
I then continued to putter for the rest of the day ! Friday over night and into Saturday morning our temps dropped to where we had a frost and it was hard enough to kill some of my annuals boy I should of gone with my instinct when I heard the weather people calling for a frost warning and covered my plants with burlap to protect them SHUCKS !! oh well . Saturday Papa and I went to town did a few bits and pieces there and came home . He then painted the butterfly and hummer garden with the paint he chose ,a forest green and is in the process of making and staining the wood seats he is to put on the edges like a bench seat for the garden . It was a nice day for being out doors !
One more coat of paint should do it ! Then bench seats go on . I will show it all done soon !
And of course Miggs is tired from supervising all this lol !
Sunday : We had a nice day to . We had the chiminea going … nothing like the smell of wood smoke in the air , I hung some laundry out and Papa got busy building a ramp for my potting shed !
I helped with the building of my ramp and took photos in between whilst Papa was busy with figuring out measurements and what not !
All done . A nice ramp for my potting shed ! Thanks Papa it looks great and works well for me !
What do we have here ? three little hungry babies that are getting to big for the nest . So Papa and I put an old chair pad under the nest to help just in case any fall out to ease the landing for them !
Mama Robin has been busy feeding and cleaning out the nest for a few days now ! She make me feel tired watching her do all that hard work !
Looks a little crammed and not very comfy now Mrs Robin !
Just a random photo of our butterfly flower , it is soo pretty !
Then all of a sudden I hear this huge deep engine from up above ,, me thinking what the BEEP !!! is that , Then suddenly from over the top of our big tree came this huge jet … a C17 Globe Master air craft , cool snap snap goes my camera !
then all settled down again after that and the rest of the day was spent relaxing . So that was our Friday , Saturday & Sunday .
Papa is home today and it is his B-day . Happy Birthday Papa . It is to be a cloudy possibly rainy day , we are going to be in town for the afternoon but the morning we will be chillin and relaxing and planning our days ahead !
Until next time .
