Sunday Sampler

Don't laugh, but I am going to sing the praises of Gel Pens!! Daughter Raethan here for the weekend to press me into service addressing wedding invitations. We spent a few hours Saturday at the dining table, writing addresses and watching the Travel channel. No cramped hands though. We used these lovely purple gel pens that glide beautifully across the envelope without needing pressure or a firm grip. The pens turned a possible tedious and painful task into a pleasure.

Rewarding ourselves for our completed task, we three (Raethan and her dad and I) went to the movies last night and saw a very entertaining film called "Super 8". Well done, well acted, great effects, suspenseful, great "jump in your seat" moments. Highly recommended by this family.

Grilled sirloin steaks for dinner last night, with enough left over for beef-fried rice tonight. A favorite of ours. Just thought I would throw that in to make you hungry!!

Blogger is being naughty to me again, this time about loading photos. I have received a message in the dreaded red font color when I try to upload a photo. Apparently I have used up all my space? Suggestions, dear friends?

Don't forget to enter my Summer Giveaway. Last day to enter is June 30th. Winners announced July 1st. Five winners. Just be a follower and comment. You can read about the Giveaway on my June 24th post.

Have a wonderful Sunday!! Off to stir my cauldron. 

Bright Blessings!!

I love pens that are so responsive. Writing can be very painful for me without them, and I just love the way they look. Glad you had a great family weekend!

I´m not sure I´ve ever used a gel pen, those I found at a google search didn´t remind me of any I´ve ever used.

So Super 8 is good! I´m planning on actually going to the movies to see that one, I don´t know when I went to the movies the last time :-) :-)

About the photo problem. You can either pay for getting more space in Your blog, delete all photographs You´ve already posted or start a new blog with almost the exactly same name. Either here on blogger or somewhere else, just leave a link here so we can find You again :-)

The best thing is to resize all photographs before posting them here, the original size contains so much data (even if they are rather small from the beginning) that You´ll use the space You´re given fast. By resizing they turn to low data jpeg photographs. All my photographs are like that.

Have a great day!

Apparently many of us have reached our two drink maximun on Picasa and now have to pay the cover charge. Ick, ick and double ick. Go to your account and face the firing squad...with no blindfold and an open wallet.

I have had trouble with a few pictures but I don't know exactly what. The beef fried rice sounds very good, especially if you add bell pepper.

I also love gel pens! I hate that you have hit the max on images. I just know my time is coming as well. Sigh. What's a girl to do?
