“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand - and melting like a snowflake.”

My first blog, my first online scrap-book attempt, my first trouble-shooting crisis! I've been working for days on this blog getting it ready for use and, at the same time, have been learning to do online scrap-booking. I didn't plan on the scrap-booking but I just stumbled onto it, you know how that is...you just see something and then, well, you just HAVE to click on the icon. That move of mine sure led to my undoing, and a few missed meals! I've been obsessed with the program. My back hurts, I haven't eaten a real meal Christmas Day and I need to get out of the house for some fresh air, or at least fill the bird feeders for my chickadees.

Earlier this evening, after the dogs went out and I cleaned the litter box, I slid over to post my first blog and everything I did looked like Hindu! Now, nothing against Hindu, but I can't read it and I don't think most of you can, either, and if you can, well, my hat is off to you. Next on my list was to find the "help" pages to see what in the world was going on and what I needed to learn. Happily, after a couple of attempts, I found the answer. Otherwise, I would have been on my way to take a crash course at our local college to take more foreign languages.

BTW, I hope this blog will become a valuable tool for my family to keep up with what I'm doing and, at the same time, a great way for me to learn something new, gotta keep dementia at bay, ya know!

Off to bed, absolutely thrilled that I'm not blogging in Hindu, and my brain is oiled and juiced to the max due to all the activity that has taken place up there these past few days.

I'm Mimi to seven little ones, six boys and one, precious little girl. Never in my life did I imagine or dream that God would bless me so richly and deeply, especially since I only gave birth to two boys!
