What ha been happening!


Okay, I know it has been almost two months but there has been a lot going on in my life. I have looked at 26 houses and some of these twice! I put an offer in on one house but there were numerous things that needed to be repaired and then the inspector found termites. They weren't bad but needed treatment but the owners did not have money for that so I walked away. The next house was very nice but had not been updated since the 70's so all new floor coverings and painting. I gave a low offer as it would take some money to do all of the work. It wasn't accepted. Soooooo I went back to a small house that I really liked in a great neighborhood and I close on Wednesday next week. Lots of work buying a house and this house did not have everything that I wanted but I realized that it would work well for me. The photo above shows the living room and I can't get the photo to stay turned so you'll need to loo at it sideways. Funny but I didn't take on outside photo. I will in the next couple of weeks.
I may post other photos in another post as I'm frustrated with this new photo program!!

Congrats on your new place. The picture looked very nice. It sounds like this was the one you were suppose to have. God bless!

Hi - Complete Stranger here.

(I like to hit the "Next Blog" button. Try it sometime. You get to meet the most interesting people!)

Just a comment you don't need to post ~ Concerning your photo program that you are having difficulties with: A super-easy and free photo catalog program that works directly with Blogger is Picasa by Google. It has a button for rotating your sideways photos, does Red-Eye fix so easy, will resize photos automatically according to your preset preferences before emailing or posting them. You can also adjust tone and temperature and bunch of other stuff with slider bars. And there's buttons across the bottom for exporting to Blogger, email, photo books, gift CD, etc. Available for PC and Mac. (Now please don't tell me that's the program you are having trouble with!) Whatever program you are using, you should be able to find an answer to your difficulties if you Google it. For example, search for "photos too dark in Adobe Photo Elements" should lead you to forums where people talk about how to fix that problem. Hope this helps.
