Up & Running Again

 

Well .. I am up and running with the new Open Live Writer and windows 10 and all is working good so far  thanks to Papa helping . It still has it’s flaws and bugs to be worked out of Open Live Writer     and lots to learn and investigate but windows 10 works wonderfully  . The only beef so far I have with this new  Open Live Writer is it doesn’t have spell check  and there are times I need that as I do forget how to spell some words but I will muddle through it .

Any who , Papa and I went and did some Christmas shopping today and we were happy we got all we set out to get , until Papa saw this cute Christmas decoration , I kind of humed and hawed at what I saw on the box but when we got it home and Papa set it up  ,well , I fell in love !

DECEMBER 2015 (9 of 9)

            Our very own  little  Christmas country carriage lamp. Isn’t this soo cute ? It looks great on our hearth by our wood stove !

The weather has turned cold and  we have  had the odd snow squall here and there and the sun has popped out every now and then . Other then all this it is pretty much quiet . Got the news that all our kids will be here for Chriatmas so we will have a house full so looking forward to seeing them and catching up . It can be so hard to see them as they all are adults and have their own busy lives but thanks to texting , calling and Facebook we stay in touch .

       Well that’s it for me I will be busy with learning the new  Open Live Writer or as they now call it OLW and the new to me Windows 10 which has soo much more fun stuff to it.

For Those of you who use live writer for posts to your blogs and are tempting to switch to the new Open Live Writer as the old Live Writer has been shut down for good , to get to the new Open Live Writer  go to this site / addy and  down load  this site is from one of the programmers of the Open Live Writers  and he has the info here which is his blog http://www.hanselman.com/blog/AnnouncingOpenLiveWriterAnOpenSourceForkOfWindowsLiveWriter.aspx

Now there will be a bit of a problem as they havent sorted the bugs out yet go figure ! so when you have down loaded the Open Live Writer you will need to go to this site/addy  and follow it’s insntructions as all will be  fixed .http://www.mybloggertricks.com/2015/12/fixing-open-live-writer-errors.html

The fix site has lots of the info  so you can get to, to get through this transition . Thanks to Papa who helps me so now I am trying to pass on this info to those bloggers who use Live Writer to help them . Good luck hope all works out !

                                                                                Until next time .

That's a great decoration. Hubby done did gud.

We have snow! Yippee! It will go soon, but it is nice to have a taste at this time of year.

Love your new decoration!

It is so wonderful all your children can come for Christmas!

No spell check??? That's insanity. Have fun with ten I certainly prefer it to eight.

Merry Christmas.

I love the carriage lamp. Have fun learning the ins and outs of Windows 10 and the new OLW It's dull and chilly here, a handful of snowflakes appeared overnight. Laughed when daughter shared a snowman she made ... finger drawing in a little bit of snow. Happy Sunday.

Your carriage lamp is really cute and I bet it does look lovely beside the stove. We will have some family home for Christmas as well. Our youngest is coming from Colorado so it will be nice to have him. He hasn't been home for Christmas in several years. Thanks for your visit and I wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.

Blessings
Sandi
