I borrowed this picture from Ashley's facebook page.  Chandler and Avery together.  Last Tuesday when we visited, I enjoyed them so much.  Avery and I played first and after he took his nap, I held Chandler until it was time to leave. 
I borrowed this picture from Jessica's facebook page. This is Matti.  We usually sit together in church on Sunday. She missed last Sunday so I missed her!  She is growing up so fast. Getting to be so much fun.  I hope y'all can tell that I love my great grandchildren.

On Monday, mama and I visited the eye glass place.  She needed some repair work on her eye glasses and of course they had to order the part needed.  They will call when they are repaired.  Today was a quite peaceful day. I had lots of tomatoes that needed to have something done now.. so the crock pot cooked soup for supper tonight and we will have some for another time. Tomorrow I will need to  go to the doctor (for myself) to get prescriptions renewed.  That always means giving up some of my blood. ha ha  And the plan is to go by Chick-fil-A for lunch.   Hope your day is good!!

Wordless Wednesday

Just a word or two... I found that some of my settings had made Windows Live my default setting... I took care of that and my blogging page is now working again.

Went to see the new baby...

Okay, I have found out this much.  When I  right click on the little triangle with the "!" it says something about "blogging" with Windows Live.  It's like it has taken over part of the Blogger functions and the part that lets me post pictures is missing. I use Internet Explorer as my browser and it always worked before I went back to the new way of blogging on Google.  Anyone else having this problem?

We went to visit my grandson yesterday to see our new great-grandson.  I didn't take any pictures, but even if I had, I wouldn't have been able to post them.  Guess I'll just have to google Windows Live and see what's going on...

Blogger, Blogger, must this continue

I chose to try the new blogger. I did this once before and had got quite used to using it. Then, all of a sudden, I could not post photos. Someone told me you could go back to the old Blogger. I did that and was able to post photos. I had a notice that everyone would have to change to the new blogger soon. So I changed back. And here I sit again, with no way to add photos to my blogs. I also have one of those ! inside the yellow triangle on the bottom of this section. I wonder how to get this fixed. There is not the little thing to click to add pics on the row with the "align" and "text colors" and etc. across the top of the compose line. How do I get this back?  Also for some reason it doesn't want to use my browser. I hate change!  Especially when it took me forever to learn how to blog  period!!  Any suggestions?  Thanks !! Happy Birthday Penny!!

Picture of the newest member of our family. Chandler Tate ... Born yesterday. I sat by the computer all day waiting while his mother was going through labor and delivery. I was amazed at how fast we got pictures after the delivery. I love facebook !! We are all so happy!!

Giving Me A Hard Time

Tonight, for some reason, Blogger is not letting me post a picture.  Seems they don't like my browser?  This is just a test.

Matti came to visit me today.  I decided to see if she likes the goats.  I'm really not sure if she did or not.  It was hot outside and she didn't react too much.  I sure did love playing with her.

Now for the words...

This is the quilt block for our barn that I wanted.  I had an old quilt (very ragged) that I showed to my daughter and told her if I ever had a quilt block for my barn I wanted something like this.  It was just a wish.

  My daughter had shown pictures on her blog of lots of quilt blocks on barns in her neighborhood.  I had admired them and started to look around here when out and about to see if people were putting quilt blocks on their barns.  I found one a few roads away that looked brand new.  I also found a couple in a neighboring county.  One farm I had known about for a few years.  Another I just found last week.

I wasn't really expecting to get a quilt block.  But my daughter and her husband decided that would be my mother's day gift.  It was big and heavy.  They brought it last week.  My husband and I took a few days to decide where to put it.  We have a couple of barns but they are in locations that cannot be seen from the road. Trees block the view.  We went on line to see how people displayed their blocks and found that there are as many ways as peoples imaginations can think of...  (Do google quilt blocks on barns sometime... you'll be amazed)

Anyway, I love mine!!  Thanks so much Penny and Billy!!

 We had a windstorm last Sunday and it blew out some of the plastic my husband had tacked up across the front.  So now we are planning to do something different to the front of the barn so that my quilt block will really stand out. Can't wait!!
