Exercise, I Won a Misti and a Garden Walk

Hi there everyone, how have you all been doing. I guess I have been MIA again for a week, again.

Had Internet and U-Verse problems these last 5 days. Finally broke down and called At&t and talked to some foreign person that is so very hard to understand. (Gosh.....I hate having to do that). But the problem is fixed and you know "what I have to do??" Each day I have to pull the plug on the modem....can you believe that??? I struggled for 5 days. I would be on the Internet and the TV would freeze up then give me a message that U-Verse signal has been lost and I had to jump through 5 hoops to get things working again.....nope, not gonna do that. But then to top that off, every time I would try to do something on the Internet I would get the message "oops we can't find that page". Boy I was getting VERY frustrated.

First I thought it was my computer and I had to take it in to get cleaned and that there was some kind of virus. But then, when the TV would freeze up, I decided it was an At&t problem. So I finally called tonight and explained the situation to the first guy....we got cut off. Then I called back and got a second guy and had to explain everything a 2nd time (geez, getting a little upset by now) and I was not sure he could really figure it out.

Suddenly he said...."I know what  the problem is and he said I had to unplug the modem for 2 seconds every day" "yeah, sure, I said, we'll see" Okay....everything is working so far..................

So I really didn't start a new exercise routine....I have been thinking about it though....hahhahaha!!
I am soooooo excited!!! I won a mini misti from here. A misti was being given away everyday for the Month of May. All I had to do was leave a comment on the blog that was giving away the misti for that day here's that blog. Today I found out I won one......don't usually win things...but today was my "lucky day"!!! When my misti comes in the mail I will show you how it's a great tool for a stamper/scrapbooker.
I took a picture of my Purple balls (their names fail me).....the first year I had one ball. The second year 3 balls. This year....6 balls! They are multiplying. (there was another one, but it fell on the it happily made it's way into the house as a bouquet. (maybe I should take a picture of it)
This is the Garden neighbor Kathy...which I just met a few weeks ago has a wonderful back yard that I was just biting at the bit to see. Finally one day I gathered the nerve to ask her about a plant I had in my front yard....I did not know if it was a weed or a flower. She did not know what it she said it was "Phlox" I guess I will let it keep growing.
This is her Lupine.....pretty, love.
A beautiful Clementius.
Some pretty pink Lupine.
Ummmmm....I forgot what she called these pretty flowers. Kathy said she would let me know when more flowers were blooming in June...that will be fun. June is also the Master Gardeners Garden walk....I might go to that too. Never know what kind of ideas one can come up with. Course I have so many ideas going....I may not be able to keep up with myself.

Well, time to close here, I have to get another Father's day card up on Etsy tonight. Now, as long as things are working right....PTL!!
Have a great night and a good Saturday and keep looking up, things do get better....just ask me!!!
Cheers ~ Louise

Louise, That is just Tech Crazy...unplug everyday. There has to be something else...But I am not so computer smart to help you. But I love your new diddly squat exercise program. LOL. At least your flowers look wonderful. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Hi Susie....Technology is crazy...but so far internet and U-verse is working. At least they could have given me a discount for all my inconviences. Pretty flowers and exercise program are doing well. I planted some more tomato plants, cabbage, peppers, and seeded some zucchini and radishes. Tomarrow swiss chard, onions and sunflower seeds.

Ugh, AT&T problems were the worst - Tony used to take care of all the technical stuff, I never have a clue!

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!
