I Am Free & { Manicure Miracle}

July 26, 2012

I know I've been off the grid for a week or so...
But for good reason!
I have been working my fingers to the bone!
I can't believe I'm going to write this....
Get ready for it...
Here it comes....
I have finished working at the apartments! 
YES!

July Is Flying By

July 18, 2012

I can't believe that July is more than half way over!
I convinced myself to do the July Photo-A-Day Challenge.  
I have absolutely LOVED doing it.
I'm not the greatest at remembering to take pictures.
I figured this would help me take more pictures and work on some much needed photography skills.
I'm going to share a few of my favorites so far this month.
I took this one in my backyard.

Canning Zucchini Relish

July 12, 2012


A couple of days ago I posted that I was doing something I hadn’t done in probably 10 years! 
I canned Zucchini Relish!

I didn’t completely forget!
It was like riding a bike… well sort of.
As you know, in my garden this year, I planted some zucchini.
My plan was to grow massive amounts of it and can some relish.

Is Your Mac Running Slow? {Installing more RAM}

July 9, 2012


I was asked to post about this when I was at
 The Haven Conference in Atlanta, GA.
Some of us bloggers were talking about our computers and I mentioned how easy it was for my son to increase the RAM on our computer.

We purchased our Mac last summer.  
My son (the computer science major) helped us “build” it.

I have to say I love it!  It has been the best computer purchase we have ever made.  I like that I haven’t had to worry about viruses.  
We seemed to have problems with that on our PC.  Anyway…

DIY Gazebo With Shade {My Gazebo Got Sunglasses}

July 4, 2012


We love to eat dinner out on our patio,
but it isn’t very fun with the sun blazing in your eyes!
I have been wracking my brain for the best solution
and of course the cheapest!

I looked at getting blinds for it, or some sorta roller shade.
But they weren’t cheap and I didn’t know how I would attach them to the poles.
