Blogger Grrrr and Sweet Surprise from Kendra

 I don't like change never have.I like to stay with what's familiar and comfortable.Well blogger has forced me to change and I'm lost and confused so bear with me till I get used to things again.First they disabled my blog emailed them and the next day it was back up.Thank goodness paniced I'd have to refind everyone on a new blog.Then yesterday it would not let me see most of your blogs once it pulled up it was just a white page.So I just walked away figuring another glitch.Well today it tells me browser does not support blogger.I have high speed wireless internet since we stream netflix and hulu to the TV so my internet is pretty up to date.It said I needed goggle chrome so with resistance I downloaded it.(you know I got to see my sweet friends)..Well it is sooooo differnt so now I have to relearn everything.I'm sure I'll get the hang of it in a few days,but right now it's very confusing.And I don't like how my dashboard is at all I get lost easily.Posting well let's just say we'll see how this post looks..LoL.....Wanted to share with you this beeswax bunny I just finished.I listed him in my etsy shop if you are interested.I only have the one made but will list more in the future.He is solid using a antique chocolate mold.....Etsy link is on the sidebar..
 Yesterday I was having a frustrating day having to catch up everything from being sick and taking care of dad's things as well.Well I got light headed and fell between the couch and coffee table.Hubby's at work and the first thing I thought was "I've fallen and I can't get up" had to laugh.Yes I could get up I wasn't really hurt except my arm and hand hurts a little because I feel on it.Then I decided to take a break and sit down well I dosed off for a few minutes which I never do.I woke up because the phone rang.I'm assuming since I had the stomach virus almost 2 weeks it took some of the nutrients and just made me wonky.I'm feeling better and eating normal again so I'll give it a few days....The day got better though because there was a sweet surprise in the mail from Kendra  The Stone House blog..She sent me this wonderful heart make do...
 Totally unexpected and brightened my whole day! She is such a sweet friend I'm so glad she started her blog and I've been able to get to know her better.I just love the little pocket on it.Here is were it's displayed...
The card is from her too.The paper has seeds in it you can plant.Thank You Kendra you are a sweetie! Well girls I'll be back soon with my Valentine decorating.Hopefully I'll get the hang of this new blogger fast.We are having a deep freeze for the next few days.Today we have 40 mile winds and the temps have dropped rapidly.I don't mind I got everything done outside the house so I can nestle in and relax a few days.Warm Blessings!~Amy


Kendra said...

Glad you like it! Looks great where you have it!

Sheila said...

Hi there Amy,
I hope you have a better day today. Such a nice surprise in the mail from your friend. Blog friends somehow know when we might need a little pick-me-up now and again.
I don't like change either. If it works don't mess with it, I say!
It's pretty cold here too. 10 degrees!
Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Angela said...

Hi Amy, So glad to hear you are better. Girl, be careful. You could have broken something. Love the rabbit. I will be glad when its time to decorate for Spring. I keep rabbits in my sunroom all year. Love them. That was a sweet gift from Kendra. So thoughtful. Stay warm and enjoy your day.

Linda said...

Amy, so funny reading your resistance to change! I could just take your post and sign my name to it!
Take csre of yourself.

Carmen and the Primcats said...

Amy, The bunny is adorable. How nice of Kendra to send the prim heart. Love it. Take care. Have a great weekend.

Marti said...

Oh brrrr, way to cold for me. Hope you get to feeling better. I use Chrome, and now that I am used to it, I love it. But change is not my favorite thing. Great heart gift, you're a lucky gall. Have a good day.

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Good morning Amy - Sorry to hear about all your problems - I hate change too! Hope today is better and you have a good weekend.
Hugs and blessings

Terra said...

Wow, I am glad your day took a turn for the better, after blog troubles and falling. It is so upbeat to receive a gift in the mail, isn't it?
The heart you got, and the bunny you made are very handsome.

Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

glad you weren't hurt.....
please take it easy till you get back to 100%.
the bunny is quite cute. reminiscent of days gone by.
I am just getting to know Kendra, too. I am enjoying her blog.
Take care, my sweet friend.
Your post looks fine. Blogger is always doing something weird. WE don't have to do anything to make it act up!

Christine said...

Hi Amy and thanks for the encouraging comment you left for me today - it's wonderful to know others care! Thank you and I hope you feel better soon - look after yourself!

Penny said...

Hope you are back to normal soon -- scary falling like that! So glad you weren't injured.

What a nice surprise from Kendra! And your beeswax bunny is just adorable.

Hope you have a good weekend... stay warm!!

Pam at Antique or Not said...

Wow, Amy, you've been having a tough time lately! Please take care of yourself...we inadvertently give our hubbies enough free amusement, no need to go overboard! LOL

Love your bunny, by the way. And Kendra's make-do is adorable; lucky you!


Michelle~Sugar House Creations said...

Glad you are okay! Definitely take it slow. Your blood pressure is probably low so when you are changing position, standing up from lying down, for example, take a minute and sit up before you move to standing to let your BP regulate. By the way, my blog was deleted a few weeks ago and thank goodness all it took was an email to get it straightened out. :-)

Heather said...

Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


Gayle said...

Blogger has been giving me trouble lately too - I wonder if I'll have to do the same thing?

prims by olde lady morgan said...

Amy, Seems everyone at some point is having problems with blogger. UGH!!!! Love your heart.... BUT... I really think you need to go to the doctor... get some blood work done, make sure the virus is gone... I hate docs too.. went this week.. it was a double ear infection and sinus infection, I needed to go... don't wait to long. OLM

Ellie's Country Accents said...

Glad you were not hurt and are feeling better. Love the bunny.

earlene said...

Love the beeswax bunny.
Good luck with the blog and hope your feeling better.
Oh and the heart make-do is very sweet.

Sassafras and Winterberry said...

That bunny is wonderful. I hope you are feeling better...being run down from the flu can totally mess with you. Surprises are the best and that heart is such a lovely gift.
Take care and have a good weekend!

The Moonlit Stitch said...

I went through the same thing Amy, with Chrome & the new layout. Just now starting to get used to it. Your bunny turned out great and the make-do is so sweet. Do you take vitamins? When you are busy as a caregiver, you forget to eat and it catches up with you along with the stress. Be well! ~*~Lisa

Jean @ Prim Crafts said...

Hi Amy,
Boy I'll tell you this crud sure does a number on ya. Please be careful~ you might need to teach mung how to dial 911, lol.
The bunny is very nice and Kendra's gift is sweet.
Take care,

Theresa said...

Amy I'm so glad you're okay...being dizzy and falling is not fun. I've been off a bit since my cold too...I think it's just the type of virus that's going around...it also tends to hang on too.

Soggibottom said...

So many that are unhappy about blogger lately...... I'm sure my turn will come....
I've noticed some changes on blogs about commenting too. It's different and I have to look for a REPLY BUTTON.. hum.
Amy be cool, I still have you in my sights :-) X X X

TheCrankyCrow said...

Do we have to get you a Medic Alert system Girlfriend? ;o) Seriously - you be careful....you could have cracked your head open or something...Hope you're feeling better. What a sweet surprise from Kendra - she is a bright spot, isn't she? And you know I love your beeswax creations!! ;o) Smiles & Sunday Hugs ~ Robin

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

Glad to hear your okay after the fall. Love the heart from Kendra. So Cute! and your beeswax bunny is adorable. Take Care!

Angie Berry said...

My hubby talked me into Google Chrome a few years back. I was really reluctant but did it anyway. I'm really glad I did. I haven't had any problems with blogger at all since I did it. When others are having so much trouble, I am not. I never have problems loading pictures, everything is so fast and easy. I really like Chrome and will never go to anything else. Just like anything, it will take some time to learn it, but it's worth it. Trust me!

What a darling beeswax bunny, he is so cute! I just love that standing bunny design... so classic and adorable!

Girl, you better watch it! Get to the doctor and take it easy until then. Take care of yourself.
