SHE KNOWS MY FAVORITE THINGS...*GULP

I AM PLAYING WITH LIZ IN
and today's theme....
KID CENTRAL...
**
ONE OF MY FAVORITE PHOTOS OF
DEEDS and MYSELF....
THIS IS A NOTE SHE GAVE ME A COUPLE WEEKS AGO...
*
front page:

"TO Memaw
from Deeds
this is a joke
it is funny...."
*
back page:
"YOUR FAVORITE THINGS" JOKE.
*
"MY FAVORITE THINGS"
*
1. HUGH GRANT
2. BLOG
3. HALLMARK MOVIES
4. ME
5. TAKING PICTURES
6. THE SONG, OVER THE RAINBOW
7. DECORATING
8. LISTENING TO THE RAIN
9. FUNNY MOVIES
10. BABIES
*****************************************
I am blown away that she knows me so well....
I told her she should have put "ME" in Number 1 spot !!
***
This paper she gave me...just makes my heart and soul sing.
It is in my Bible, along with a tiny note that declares my blessing named DEEDS !
**
....do you think that, someday...she will know how much just that simple little note means to my heart ?
*
I think she will when she is 72 and a little 8 year old granddaughter has bonded so well with her that she knows her top 10 favorite things in the whole wide world.
*
Yes ma'am...I think HER heart will just about burst with love and thankfulness...just like mine did !
*********
I am also linking with JUSTINE for my very first SUNDAY SCRAMBLE
Why is it that there's people that DELIGHT in hacking into our computers and websites
and play havoc with all our hard work?
Saturday was a hard day for me...first, I tried to change backgrounds from a site
that I had NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE. I should have known something was wrong...
it was so jerky when I tried scrolling but.......
THEY HAD THE VERY BACKGROUND I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR....
so I threw caution to the wind...
Ended up losing my whole entire blog...worked all evening and into the night to get it back..
THEN, everything on my sidebar was totally messed up !
SHOOT !!
I don't know if this site intentionally hurts blogs or if they just don't know what they are
doing and they just screw up the codes...Guess I'll never know but....
I SURE WON'T GO BACK THERE...
*NOTE...I am generally not a whiner but sometimes you just gotta WHINE !
Speaking of WHINE...think I'll go have a glass !!

OMG, you lost your whole blog? how the heck did you get it back up and running again so quickly? What site was it? We all need a warning!

Deeds is just awesome. "Over the Rainbow" is my all-time favorite song too! And, you gotta love Hugh Grant. And the rain! Me lovessssss the sound of the rain! And my blog! LOL

She forgot one thing. RED!

Justine :o )

Julie Harward said...

Yes, I know that feeling of such intense love for a grandchild...nothing like it! God is so amazing to have put us in families...such love!
Too bad about the trouble and scary! I always go to my daughter for help when I do that, she can do it so much quicker than I can. So glad I didn't loose my new friend! Come say hi :D

Chris said...

Good Morning BJ, I'm so sorry you had such a mess with your blog, that's madding, and it's a huge problem for me cause I'm not to smart with my computer. I try to remember, IF IT AIN"T BROKE,DON'T FIX IT.LOL I wanted to change my blog page, and I did, but I gave up all my followers and still don't have all of them back :(
I know you'll get it the way you want it soon.

Love ya,
Chris

Carol said...

The list your granddaughter made for you is so sweet & precious!

So sorry you had major problems with your blog, how frustrating!

By the way, thanks for the heads up about the snow widget.

Smiles,
Carol

Amelia said...

Such a sweet gesture from Deeds...she loves her Grandmother and her Grandmother loves her back...it is so evident in your postings.

Do you suppose it would be wrong to advise us the name of the lay-out place that gave you such troubles? Would hate for that to happen to other good people.

Enjoy today.

Theresa said...

Glad you got your blog back. There is a lot of work in there, huh? I love the list that Deeds made:) My Granddaughter, Autumn, knows me that way! It is a blessing to have Grandchildren and be so close to them. Hugs to you dear BJ!

Bev said...

I love the note. I am reminded of my own precious grandmother - think of her every day. Her love of all things creative was passed down to me. And I remember being loved outrageously by her.

But I don't think I even had a clue what I meant to her until I had my own little grandsons. It makes me weak in the knees to understand how truly loved I was as long as she was on earth!

Thanks for reminding me.

grrrr on the blog cootie...I picked up a virus that took my whole system down and then infected the server...please tell us what you know so that we can avoid them.

I am sure Deeds know how much she means to her grandma...she is so sweet!

I am glad you have your blog back. That must have been so nerve racking!!
Hugs,
Penny

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

PLEASE!!! [Yes, I'm shouting, 'cause it's important.] Please all bloggers, make a separate blog, just for trying stuff out.

I call mine "Test Blog for Aunt A" or some such. And I have it set to Private. So I can play with it, all I want, and no one sees my playing with colors and backgrounds and new header pics and etc. It...Is...Wonderful!!!!!

Please, everyone, make a private "Test Blog." You'll be able to try out everything, before putting it on, or doing it to your regular blog.

.♥.♥.♥.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Plus, a couple of gals have asked you to share the name of the site, which seemed to do this to your blog... If you don't want to do that, on your blog, perhaps you could email [we who asked] and tell us the link, that way?

I don't know all the in's and out's of doing such. I mean, is there some sort of weird liability, to posting a link to a place, which you say 'did bad stuff'? Bleahhhhh...

.♥.♥.♥.

Oh how precious that you have such a loving and close relationship. I adore many of the same things too.

Hello BJ,

Awe sorry you had trouble with your blog. You fixed it all in one night? Wow! This litle note from Deeds is precious. That for sure is a keeper. I have several of those from my kids. I keep them in a special box, and every once in awhile I will go through them and read them again. Sooo, cute. I have one when hubby was working on the pipes in the kitchen up in the ceiling, and you could look down into the kitchen from the bathroom. She writes him a note, and says "hope you are having fun working on the whole". lol Another said, I love you mom here is your vitimin. (vitamin) she layed it next to the note. Nice that little Deeds knows you so well.

Hugs,
Debbie

HUGS!!!

Pat@BPM said...

I love this post! That is the sweetest, list BJ. Deeds is a doll baby, for sure!

I am afraid to do anything much with my page. I changed my link color this morning and was so nervous, just doing that! Not a techie at all!!

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh that precious child! I thought the same thing when I read the picture of the note, "if I know BJ Deeds should be in the #1 spot, along with all her other grands:>) It is a little disturbing that Hug Grant won out over Mr. Sweet, but I'm sure that is only because it goes without saying that he is on your top 10 list:>) I saw the post where you had lost your blog! Thank goodness you were able to restore it!

Dixie said...

Oh BJ... quite obviously not in the order of importance... but how precious that she knows... she really-really knows... her Memaw...

sweet hugs... Dixie

Tricia said...

What a sweet note from your Grandaughter - a prize forever. And sorry about your computer. That is just so infuriating! But glad that somehow you got most of it back.

Blessings,
Tricia

Donna said...

BJ,
Thank goodness you "found" your blog!
The note is just so sweet! I have notes from my girls in my Bible that they made me as young girls! They would sit in church and write them and give them to me. I have a collection of them I still keep in my Bible. So many memories.
Thanks for visiting and I have always enjoyed your blog!
Blessings,
Donna

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

That note is the sweetest thing. You will treasure it always. I'm sorry about your computer issues. I added a new background last week from a new site. I worried about it, but it seems to be okay. You just never know.

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I love the letter. So nice to be known so well by your granddaughter. It shows what a wonderful grandmother you are. Thanks for the heads up about the background adds. You're not a whiner either, you're warning us all of potential danger for our computers. We appreciate it so much. I'm so glad you got your blog back.
Blessings,
Marcia

To backup your blog:
Go to your Settings tab and make sure you click on basic. Then click Export blog and there is a big orange bar to download.

There's also a learn more tab, which I haven't used. (Sort of a man complex there...)

Hope it works for you!

Barbara Jean said...

Oh such sweetness!
What a wonderful gift for you.

Thanks for coming by and joining in on the giveaway!!

Good luck and blessings

You experienced what we're all afraid of! Well, your blog that is---what great notes from the grand girls!I am not surprised you'd have them lovin' you so much--you're cool!

I love love your post - except the part about your blog being messed up of course! I love the sentimentality of your heart here and now and for hers in the future. :) Jenn

Bunny Jeans Decor... and More! said...

Oh BJ,

I took your advice and backed up my blog. Then I raised my security level. Then I got into trouble!

WELL... I lost the ability to show my followers. I still had the gadget up, but no names would show up. All I could think of was the trouble that you had!

It took me awhile to figure out why. I had set my security level so that no banner ads could pop-up. (I thought that would be nice not to have those pesky things flash by on my screen when visiting certain websites.) Well apparently the pop blocker level was too high.

All is well now. I hope you get some rest after all your troubles!

Talk to you soon ;)
