4:45pm :)…..Good Afternoon everyone! Forgive me while I play :) I have no idea what I’m doing, lol, but I spent most of the day enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having and the rest of it , trying out this new ( to me, lol ) Windows live Writer. Thanks to my sweet friend Cheryl over at Cottage Farm Villa! Thanks Cheryl, I’m giving it a whirl!

5:30pm….45 minutes later ……This was so much fun!, after almost an hour I still have no clue, lol! But the next time I have a few minutes and it’s not so Gorgeous out, I will play again! Try it out girls! at Windows Live Writer!

I hope you are all having as Beautiful a day as we are in New York today!!

Opps, sorry, lol, as you can see I still have some kinks to work out ( small text) …..
Enjoy! Hugs,

~ Cynthia ~

Cynthia, I've got to try this windows live writer. I'll make my kids show me how to use it...LOL.
Poor guys, they always get stuck showing mom how to do something techno.
Have a great week-end!

Nancy Rosalina said...

Hi Cynthia, The photos are gorgeous and I love WLR! I have been using it for several weeks now and isn't so much easier!!!

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Love your blue and white quilt on the chair in the first picture! I see alot of bloggers are going to Live Writer. You will have to let me know how you feel after using it for a while. Happy Spring Weekend!

Looks like you had a gorgeous day as did we! My girlfriends and I enjoyed a nice day of riding the trails with the horses (with a few ansi horses today, lol). Must be spring fever. What is windows live writer?? I must check it out. Hope you have a great weekend!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Beautiful pictures!! Thanks for sharing. I just started blogging in January and have not mastered everything yet, so I have not tried Windows Live Writer yet. I need to wait until my daughter comes home from college. I am not very techno savy. LOL!! Love & blessings from NC!

Anonymous said...

Isn't it fun to try out something new?? I might have to give this one a whirl...I'm not really tech savvy but who knows, maybe I'll be able to do it. It was gorgeous here in Ohio today too, ahhh spring finally!


Marilyn said...

Betty Jo said...

Hang in there, you'll master it! Love the photos. I have a little teapot exactly like yours, given to me by a special friend. ♥

It looks like a gorgeous day. I'm waiting for green grass. IT might be awhile, so for now, I will enjoy yours!

The Old Parsonage said...

Looks like you did a-ok to me. I love the look you achieve in decorating.

tam said...

Oh girl I love your blog-visiting it for me is like turning the pages of one of my favorite home magazines! Enjoyed the photos very much-haven't tried the live writer thingy yet-and it is gorgeaous here in the Pacific Northwest too! Hope your weekend is a blast Cynthia~Smiles~Tam!

Brenda Pruitt said...

Oh, I discovered Windows Live Writer about a month ago and I am in love with it! Amazed myself that I figured it out at all. I can't figure out how to get a second blog to work on it though. Still have some ironing out of the technical wrinkles!

Amy said...

Very pretty photo's. Your back porch looks so relaxing and beautiful. I love the picture of the flower arrangement. Did you make it? Very nice. I can't wait to try Windows Live Writer. Thanks Cynthia!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I kept looking at that picture of your white wicker chair on the porch and I thought to myself, "wouldn't I love to sit and have a cup of coffee with Cynthia on her porch". It is so lovely how you take and group the colors and textures of everything together, and come up with beauty. The arrangement is exceptionally beautiful and would add so much to any room. I might have to try the new "Windows Live" thing. Hope that you have a good week.

Cynthia..... I am glad you decided to give WLR a try. You will really enjoy it. I used to get so frustrated trying to line up my pics with blogger. You'll get the hang of it and LOVE it. Thanks for link, I received some lovely comments from some of your treasured followers! hugs!

Want to see more pics of your backyard as we move into summer! It is so pretty.

Janet said...

Hi Cynthia!
Glad to hear you're out enjoying the beautiful weather there - it's scorching hot here in So. Cal. I'm very confused by the weather these days, some days I have to drag out my sweaters, other days I'm throwing them back in the closet! The globe is definitely warming on this side! lol

Rue said...

Good morning Cynthia :)

I just started using WLW about a week ago and it gets easier. The only complaint I have is that when you click on the pictures after they're posted, they don't enlarge, but the easy posting makes up for it.

You porch looks beautiful and I wish I could join you out there :)



Hi Cyn,
I hope your getting on that plane to come visit me!!LOL.

Unknown said...

LOVE your patio! I have a book I'm reading and I think I could just sit there for hours! SOOOO Pretty!

Sorry don't know much about the windows live writer.... eeeek sounds addictive.... LOL! :)


Kimberly said...

The white wicker chair and table looks so comfy & relaxing! I can't wait to get my porch ready for summer!

Ruthann said...

Happy Spring Cyn! You are just the sweetest thing ever for leaving me such uplifting comments! A girl could always use a little pat on the back! I so appreciate your friendship! Just loving your beautiful porch bathed in sunshine...would love to come for a visit...I'll bring the pie!
Lots of hugs!

Hi Cynthia,
Your porch is lovely and a wonderful place to rest the mind and soul.
I do love the fabric you posted, it's just my style. I have enjoyed reading your posting today.
Have a great day,
