Happy Left-Over Day!

Hubby and I are spending the day laying low...he's still sick.  We had a perfectly lovely Thanksgiving here yesterday.  He was too sick to go to the big family dinner so we stayed home and I made a quick dinner of chicken and my world famous cornbread and sausage stuffing.  Because as we all know...the stuffing is the important part of any Thanksgiving meal...everything else is just a condiment.  I was going to take a picture of it (originally to send to my friend who loves to take pics of food) but when I looked at it, I realized that as spectacular as it just looks like a large baking dish of brown when it's I didn't bother with the picture.

I've decided to spend the time today doing something constructive that I've wanted to learn for a to use pictures I've downloaded to my computer.  More than that I'm going to learn how to scan pics into my computer.  I come from a long line of shutterbugs and I have thousands of pics of family, friends and places that I'd love to have access to on sites from Facebook and my blogs to pic sharing sites.  So lets give this a try....

 It's not easy to get my four grandchildren (yes, I know they're adorable) to sit still together for a picture but they did here.  
So now I now I can do it from my computer files to Blogger.  Now to figure out how to scan non-digital pics in....

Video of Hurricane Sandy

My sister just sent this to me.  She was without power for many more days then we were.  Astounding video of Sandy ambling up the Atlantic and then taking the sudden left turn that slammed into us.  It looks so much better from up there then it felt here on the ground.  ~  The full screen doesn't work, but the large screen player does.

OK, I've Decided To Merge My Blogs...Well Most Of Them.

In an earlier post I mentioned that I was thinking of merging my blogs.  I was very surprised to find that anyone cared enough to write and tell me what I should do.
What I've ultimately decided is to keep two blogs.  This one which will continue to carry my quest to simplify my life, but also everything else I want to say and post of a secular nature; and my other blog "Random Thoughts From An Inter-Denominational Mind" which will be my place to write about things to do with my Christian faith.  
I appreciate the feedback I was given and I hope you'll keep reading if you enjoy what I have to say.
Being a bit of a technoweenie I have no idea how to actually "merge" them, even if there is a way.  So what I'll do is to take the posts I want to keep from my other blog and post them here with a notation that they are from my original blog.
