A Crazy Mixed Up World

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my piano post.  The piano is on loan from our son's girlfriend until she gets a place of her own when she graduates from college.  Though my fingers don't know what they are doing half the time since it's been so many years since I've played, they are slowly but surely finding their groove again.

For now, and for the sake of our dear neighbor, the windows will remain closed whenever I play. :)

It's rainy here today, after a weekend of what can only be described as glorious weather.  The humidity was nearly non existent and the skies were blue, so we took full advantage and went kayaking.

When I did come back to my computer on Monday, I realized that my world was a bit crazy and mixed up.  Emails and comments I had read via my phone were no where to be found on my regular computer, and when I logged in to my FB account it showed all of my friends and messages, but it took me to the FB for someone else...I think they sold equestrian attire?!  

Needless to say, I was like WHAT is going on, did I get hacked?!  I've done an update to my computer, and now when I log in I am back to my old FB page, but it's all very strange and I'm not sure what to make of it.  Perhaps the crazy, beautiful weather caused Google, FB, and Gmail to go on vacation for a few days too?

I hope to be able to retrieve the emails, I would like to respond to those who have written to me, so I will keep trying to see if I can find them.  When I can't figure something out, I find it's best if I just go outside for a little while and take in the sights and sounds of mother nature.  

The rose garden is looking a little unsure as to what to do with our changeable weather, but the Charles Darwin seems unfazed and is happily blooming away.  Ahh to be a fly, and rest upon it's pretty petals!  I imagine for such a tiny creature the smell must be intoxicating!

Enjoy your week!  


  1. Kat...only you could make a fly perched on a rose look and sound so lovely! It really is a striking composition. xo

  2. What glorious images! You're right- I hate when FB/Blogger screw up. I had a hard time leaving comments on some blogs today- It is a weird techy world out there- xo Diana

  3. Pretty! Outside with the flowers is a perfect response to crazy computer issues.

  4. I hope I am not speaking too soon - last week's problems seem to have been resolved for me, thankfully!

    I have an image of you closing all your windows before you play on the piano.:-) I didn't comment that our daughter was given a piano. She had to pay to have it moved to her condo. Recently she wanted to rearrange the furnishings, and she once again paid for someone to come and move the piano to another room from where she had it located! I have just always given ours the "hip movement" when I wanted to move it from one side of the room to the other.:-)

  5. Kat! Don't worry so much about emails ; o ) We never used to worry when we had snail mail and no internet. Just pretend is 1975 again and you will be just fine.
