Trying Windows live writer..fingers crossed

After taking a break of several hours I decided to give it one more go and set up windows live writer. Don’t want to jinx myself but it looks like it might work. I don’t have much more time to devote to it today but here are a few details. I am leaving for a few weeks to attend my neices wedding and to spend some time with family in a beach house before the wedding. On that note I have spent the last few weeks very busy adding to the economic upturn(huh?) by buying a lot of new clothes and shoes and travel stuff. I haven’t really bought any new clothes in quite a while-probably since Roger passed away. So I closed my eyes and held my nose and just went for it. Many trips to Kohl's, Chico's, Coldwater Creek, Lands End, Dress Barn, and other assorted places to drop a bundle, I think I have enough to get by. I still have a couple of things to do like hair cut and color next week and a trip to Ulta for cosmetic stuff. I still have a big list but it’s looking like light at the end of the tunnel and it appears not to be a train.

The house building is on hold till around very early June. It’s all ready to go-we got the permits and think we have a contractor who is making up an estimate. I’m going to really live it up on vacation since I may have no sheckles left soon. The past weeks have been taken up with travel stuff and the next many months will be a complete chaos mixed with a lot of theatre. I’ve been on the outside looking in on friends who have gone through that theatre so now it’s my turn. I hope to have a new camera and have some pictures after we get back. Both the trip and the build should provide plenty of fodder.  I have done no sewing or quilting except finishing a baby quilt for a young woman who is an unwed Mom to be shortly. I had an extra top made from that Whimsy fabric in a checkerboard pattern. The mother to be is a high school student- a friend of a friend of Terry and can use all the sweetness we can give her. It’s a lonely place to be for her. I’m hoping the quilt for her baby will make her smile.

That’s all I have time for today and I’m about to hit Publish. Fingers crossed….

See, I knew you could push through and write a post!

Have a splendid time with the vacation/wedding.

A wedding! How wonderful! And new clothes? YAY! Lets see, lets see!

I use Windows Live Writer (have for years), it's so much easier than composing in the blog itself, and I can do it while traveling (and not be online).

And you can write a post and then publish it when you feel like it. Save all those posts on your PC just in case. Place a photo in your post anywhere you like. Add a video. Use other fonts AND colours. Enjoy, there is no other blogging editor like it.

You will be gorgeous - have loads of fun!

Yea! You're sticking around! I think you'll be able to use Blogger once you give it a try. I know I don't like changes either and I freaked out but now I'm happy with it again.

Have fun on the trip.

Just when you're getting the hang of it, Windows Live Writer may be discontinued soon. If you like the program and want to keep using it, be sure to sign an online petition to “Save Windows Live Writer”. [http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/dontkillwlw] Please sign it and spread the word!
