Back(!) and What I Did with Some Pretty Papers

First, some eye candy for you chicks. :-)
Me and Miss C when we were visiting with her last month.

First of all, I'm feeling pretty good to where I think I'll start posting once more a week—perhaps mid-week—other than Pink Saturdays. If this doesn't work out I'll let you know. It's just a trial to see how it will affect me. But truthfully, I have missed blogging a LOT. I love it! I'll just have to take care and watch how much I do. I absolutely cannot spend hours on here so if I don't get to you and comment, please try to understand. I'm doing the best I can at the moment.

Also, I need to tell you that I've thought of that elusive song I was trying to capture in my memory. My authority for 80s songs is my daughter. She can always come up with the song or the recording artist. After trying to remember some of the words I came up with cadillac and pink and she guessed it right away. I've never been a fan of Bruce Springsteen but it was one of his songs: "Pink Cadillac". I don't listen to music around the house as a general rule so I truly don't think I've ever heard any of his songs other than that. Needless to say, it is now in my iTunes! I like to exercise to it.

Oooooh, and another thing. I wrote a comment to Blogger about keeping the Old Editor. It now does not have the "going away soon" by its name in the "Settings" tab on Blogger. I guess they listened to me and one other blogger who told me she was going to ask them to keep it also. Gals, this is the easiest editor of the two. Much more stable. If they do indeed keep it, I'm ecstatic. Pictures appear where they should. Spaces between pictures and text is closer together and much more stable (I could not get it to do correctly even if I used the Edit HTML tab above, AND the issue of spaces being further apart on the New Editor has definitely come up from people emailing me for help.) Plus I can upload 5 pictures at one time with it instead of one at a time. AND if you need to have strikethrough text or background color for some of your test background, you can change to the New Editor for just that one thing while composing the post and switch back to the Old Editor for the rest of it as I did in this post. However, I must warn you that if you switch back and forth the colors may be inconsistent in some of the text and the spaces between the photos can be a bit off. Me? I stick to the Old Editor until everything I want in the post is good and then I go back to do the "strikethrough" or any other thing for which I might want to use the New Editor. The best of both worlds, although, I don't think I've ever used colored background text and don't
especially like it, you can have that option if you wish. A win-win situation for all.

I showed you some of these gorgeous papers the first of October, but I thought I'd show you the rest and what I did with some of them.

These are some of the candlesticks I pulled out of our garage sale in July and kept. Remember the 2 in the back, right at the top of the photo?

This is what they look like now. Nice, huh?
