The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

Yesterday with celebrated our granddaughter’s 3rd Birthday. Another one of those firsts without my son. It was hard at first especially because there was a gift there for her from him, beautiful “hair pretties” that he had asked a friend to make before he died. What was so nice was all of us who love Natalie getting together. She was his princess and and now he is one of her angels.

Happy SUNDAY Everyone!

Spring seems to have sprung but then I remember that I live in Wisconsin and we have had huge blizzards well into April so I will enjoy the warmer temps while I can.

Had my first trip out of the house since Christmas this past week. Got a haircut and made a surprise visit to my grandsons. They have been so busy and I was going through withdrawal from not seeing them. 

We have also been watching a lot of basketball. The Fall River Pirate Girls Team made their first ever trip to the State Tournament. They lost in the 1st round and the team that beat them went on to win the championship. The Badgers are also playing in the Big Ten Tournament and the NCAA Tournament is just around the corner. So with all this reading has been happening late at night or early in the morning. Harlan Coben’s new book, The Stranger, kept me up until my eyes were slamming. My review will be up on Tuesday.

It’s been a stressful week here and that will probably be the case for awhile.
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

Will be trying to relax and watch the Daytona 500 and the Oscars and try to escape for a few hours into a good book.

Patting myself on the back this week. My Outlook email had been acting wonky again and on Friday it crashed again. No panic from me this time. I learned my lesson last time. This time all emails had been backed up on my blog server and I knew how to open Outlook in “safe mode” to downloaded my calendar and contacts to a gmail account. Then I started trying to diagnose the problem. Hubby was at work and there were no frantic phone calls. I knew my data was safe. With a little online research I found out that “add-ins” are usually the problem so I eliminated them one at a time and found 2 that were causing the program to shutdown. One was my security protection which needed a bit of tweaking and the other was a linking add-in that was part of a recent Microsoft upgrade which I disabled and viola! the program is working again. There is always something to learn about this computerized world. The most important one is backup your work so when the things go wrong there is no need to panic and you can take your time trying to fix the problem.

Halloween is quickly approaching and the grandkids are talking costumes. When their parents were small I made most of their costumes. My disability keeps me from doing tnatalie halloween 2014hat for the grands but we do have one costume that I made  that all my kids have worn and this year Remington will be wearing it. It is a pumpkin costume and I have been searching for pictures of his mommy, aunt and uncles wearing it and of course I can’t find any. Kaden wore it a few yeas ago and I can’t find a picture of that one either. I know I have big totes of pictures to organize so I am hoping I can find them soon. Kaden will be a zombie this year and I have given his mother tips to make the costume rather than buying something overpriced. Natalie is going to be Super Girl and has already been modeling her costume.
