Bits of August.....












 Hello Everyone...

Can hardly believe that August has arrived...

had some good rains finally...and cooler temps this week...but heating up again today!!!

I see that a few are having problems with the new "Blogger" platform...

This is a "test" run...so to speak...

I am also hearing bout emails that bloggers have received from Google...

I have not received any such email...and would probably SPAM it if I did...

I did have to fiddle with my pics to get them centered properly, and as large as I like them...

Why oh why do they mess with thigns that have been working for YEARS!!! 


We did get down to the cottage for a visit...hopefully more visits starting soon...

Sooooo...

Hopefully when I hit publish...all will be well...enjoy the pics!!!


      See you soon...

  3. We desperately need rain, but then when it does I want the heat back again. Enjoy your future visits to the cottage. New blogger is such a pest, it seems to change something every single time that I use it.

    1. Welcome!!! I know that you are from Monique's lovely blog...
      If you click on new post...the text etc will come up, just like the old format, but you may need to click and extend that, to see the little logo for pictures...good luck with that...and hope to see you again!!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous photos. I want to reach out an touch them. I struggled with the new blogger for a little while, but now I like the change. Can't believe we are in August either. The months are flying by. Hope all is well with your health wise. We wake up every morning and say...."Every day is a bonus". God Bless

  6. New Blogger is a pain in the ass. But apparently the changes are designed to make it easier to blog from a smartphone. Thanks for nothing, Blogger, it's now harder to blog from a regular computer.

  7. love all your images, Lind. I think this new blog format may be the straw that breaks this camel's back. I don't have time to be frustrated over blogging and learning a new 'system'. xo Diana

  9. What lovely pink flowers you grow! I do hope you are ok, dear Linda. The heat has been shocking for you this year, so hopefully cooling breezes are ahead, and the gorgeous Canadian Fall. Hard to believe it is getting close to a year since we took off to visit France and our dear daughter in Canada. We wonder when/if we will ever be able to travel again. New Blogger sure is weird, and has put me off a bit. Also, not having much to blog about, ha ha. Take care.

  10. Hi Linda, always love stopping by for a little visit to your corner of the world! Beautiful scenes and flowers to lift up the spirits during these trying times. Scrolled down to see your last post - I've been off the computer for a while. Can't believe your little Miss V is already 8 years old. My goodness, where does the time go? You have a beautiful family - love seeing those sweet little faces. The new blogger format is a little strange, but so far I am managing. I couldn't find the 'save' button, and so afraid of losing my whole post without it so I worked on it until ready to publish, only to find the button right before then. I'm a little clueless at times. I think my brain has turned to jello lately with all that is going on in the world. Hope you are feeling better and enjoying some cooler weather. It was 95 degrees here yesterday and we have no air conditioning. I have 5 fans going and we have to yell to each other to talk over them. Haha! Sending hugs xo Karen
