Test and Help!

This is a test post. I can't figure out how to post pictures
From my iPhone without them being sideways, even if
I email the picture to my desktop computer and save
It in my picture documents.. The picture looks fine on
My desktop computer but then when I go to post on my
Desktop the pictures are always sideways! I want to be
Able to take pictures with my iPhone instead of my camera
Sometimes! I have downloaded the google plus app on
My iPhone , now to figure it out! If any of you bloggers
Out there have encountered this problem and know what
To do about please post to me and help me out. Would love
To be able to blog from my iPhone without having pictures
Come up sideways! Thank you!
Louise :)

****Edited to add.... I now Dow loaded another App for blogger onto my iPhone ...I think I am slowly figuring this out!! This picture seems to be upright... 
Now let me try a picture of my baby...
Sir Charleston!!
Isn't he a doll!!
We love him to pieces!!
Thank you all for your responses on my last post. I really appreciate it. I will have lots of updates in my next post! :) make sure you read the new post below this one too! Some neat pictures :)

A New Day!

Thank you to those who stopped by and so graciously left sweet comments for me. I cherish every one of them. It means so much to me that you would take a moment to say hello.
I feel like a miracle has happened! Yesterday and today I have felt WONDERFUL! I want to scream it from the mountains! I think I needed a long time to heal from surgery. I am hoping that is the case anyways.
I picked up my crochet hook yesterday and started working on crochet Squares Of Love for the Military Blankets again..
I stopped by my dear sweet friend Luanna's house recently...I love to sit with her on her front porch!
I love to hear her stories of days gone by, her work in a button factory (I think that is so fascinating!)...
This is her front porch that we sit on...
Here is Luanna! My sweet friend who will be 92 years old in September. Doesn't she look fantastic!

I just love spending time with my sweet friend! I recently asked her about the mill that is sitting to the side if her yard because it is so fascinating to me.!she told me all about it. This is called a molasses mill! I had never seen one before in my life. She told me how the molasses would be ground up then they would cook it till it was hot and melted.
Here are some pictures of the mill that is in her yard but is no longer used. She tells me that many people stop and ask if they can take pictures of it!

I stopped in to a local second hand shop called "Grandmas Attic". Love looking around at all the treasures in there! I saved a beautiful stitched piece, it is now hanging and looks so beautiful in my dining room...

I also picked up a chair that the owner said he bought at an estate sale from a farm. The chair looked old, but I was not sure? It is solid wood, and perhaps it is handmade. It sits in my bedroom in a corner and looks lovely there :)
My daughters senior picture proofs came in the mail. How can it be that our baby is now going into her senior year of high school?! Our little Raggedy Ann loving little doll is now a young lady, that is so beautiful and we are so very proud of. Where have the years gone? Our little miracle from heaven! I cannot wait to receive her pictures in the mail. She is so excited to start her senior year. I have already bought her one of her graduation gifts...it's a surprise. Not very expensive...but wait until you see!! I just could not resist! 
That's all for now, lets see how this post goes...
Started the other day on my desktop, but
Pictures were not working right side up
Be usage they were taken with my iPhone,
So now I have finished up half of this
Post with my phone and also putting the pictures on with my phone too using
Blogger for iPhone. Wish me luck !
Hopefully not too many typos! Small keyboard on the iPhone!

Blessings!

Hello it's me!

Hello out there....
Been thinking about deleting the blog...not sure though.
Just not as interested as I used to be. I do so much Facebooking these days, and looking around on Pinterest! I even started up a twitter account..but twitter didn't go very far. lol
I thought I was getting better but have been having a rough go of it. Today though I actually felt pretty great!
I got through the surgery well enough...but then the pain would not go away. Then tests were ordered..I think I had about every test under the sun...barium CT and nuclear scans...endoscopy and other scopes...
I am still not 100 percent, but the doctors cannot seem to find out why I am still feeling pain under my ribs and in my back..this should have gone away with taking the gallbladder out.
Oh well, I am glad however nothing serious was found. On to healing more I suppose. I am trying to learn to eat in smaller amounts more frequently..that seems to be helping. Seems that many of my friends are having many health issues these days right along with me...I have been praying mighty hard for so many! I know God is listening.
I haven't been doing too much on the crafting front.
I did make one baby blanket, but forgot to take a picture before I mailed it out! Oh well :(
Not keeping up too well!
I hope the recipient likes it for their new baby and hopefully she will take a picture that perhaps I can post for all of you to see.
I did bake an apple cake yesterday..again, forgot to take a picture. I am really slacking aren't I?!
Well,...I did work on sprucing up the blog today...do you like it?!
Yes, I am ready for FALL!!
My favorite time of year..but you all knew that!
Time to start dinner for my wonderful husband..and must clean Sir Charleston the bunnies cage out..
I must post some newer pictures of him for you soon...he is darling!
Blessings to you!
Louise
