I heart you!

SO for awhile now, I have been wanting to do some new posts. I was a lucky sucker and got an ipad for mothers day last year, and I have tried to post posts from it, but could not down load pictures. I didn't get in any kind of a snit over it though cuz I was just busy and figured I'd get the process learned sooner than not. Well, I can't download any pictures to my blog at all, not on my ipad, nor the PC. Blogger tells me I've maxed out my quota with Picasa and if I want to download any more pictures, I can BUY more space. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS TROUBLE?  No one that I personally know has had any idea what is going on. I'm not sure what I need to do. CAN ANYONE OUT THERE OFFER ME ANY HELP?

 SO in the mean time, since I missed almost a years worth of wishing you happy every holiday that has passed, I'm going to skip January and get a head start on Valentines day! LOL maybe I'll have my problem worked out by that time! Here is a re-post from last year.
 ( it still counts cuz the sentiment is still the same :-0)

"How many slams in an old screen door?
Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
Depends how thin you cut it.
 How much good inside a day?
Depends how good you live 'em.
 How much love inside a friend?
Depends how much you give 'em."
— Shel Silverstein

 Happy Valentines Day my friends!  Thank you so much for your bloggy friendship and visits.  :-)
 I hope this day you will be able to share mountains of love with your dears! And feel all those mountains of love in return. I hope you can give away many hugs this day, and will receive some back.  I hope you can "kick" a valentine or two!! (anyone remember "kicking " valentines? ) (maybe you called it  "stomping or stamping" ) ...did none of you REALLY kick any Valentines? Really?

Scones made from bread dough

Hearts around The Stone House

Our dear friend lost her husband on Friday night, and another dear friend is home healing from extensive cancer surgery on her jaw and face, while yet another friend's 3 yr old  granddaughter is under going kemo for cancer on both her kidneys. Hold your loved ones close and tell them how much you love them! Shout it to the roof tops and love them tight! 
 Make the most of loving them 24/7. It's the most important thing we can ever do in our lives!
OK, well, I really meant to keep this post light and I'm getting off track!
Enjoy your day.
I'm behind on my visits, I'm thinking about you
 and I'll be by soon.
Blessings from the Stone House

Since this is a re-post, I will tell you, that my dear friend passed away in Aug of 2011. Just 6 months after finding out she had cancer. She never did get well. The 3 year old did. Her cancer is in remission/gone.

Love the heart shaped scone idea! So sorry to hear about all the trials going on in your neck of the woods. Hopefully all will be well soon. We shouldn't ever take our loved ones for granted. You just never know what tomorrow will bring. Hope your V day was as wonderful as you! Mimi

Oh Mercy, Love all the displays! But those scones have me licking my lip! Are you doing a recipe share for them??? Would love to be able to smell them!!!

Julie Harward said...

I miss your post and I have missed you! About Picasa, I use it too and have not heard of that...yet?!! Wish I was smart enough to help. I remember this post because of the white leather gloves with the fringe, love them! Take care of yourself! ;D

Yep, Picasa only gives you so much storage room for free. I have a friend that now pays a small yearly fee to get more room, but I can't remember what it is. For now, I just resize my pictures to a smaller size before loading them. I print my blog every year, like a year book; if I ever run out of free storage space, I might delete some of the older pictures.
