Watching "Dunkirk," Reading Ken Follett, and Spending Time With Family

Happy Columbus Day everyone.  Before I get to the rest of my post, I want to say that I've really had a challenging time lately with blogging, and especially visiting other blogs.  At first I thought it was Blogger, but now Mr. Forest Manor and I have determined the problem is with my browser, Google Chrome.  Certain blogs would open and load immediately for me, and others refused to load.  I was not able to visit my friend Betsy at Estelle's, and I wanted to leave some comments for her.  I also tried to visit Michele at Finch Rest and Martha at Lines From Linderhof.  I've now switched to using Microsoft Edge as my browser, and that is working well (for now).  Is anyone else out there having these kinds of problems?

My First Visit To A Tea Room

First things first.  I've been having a little trouble with the new Blogger lately.  I'm 
assuming it's Google Blogger, but it could be my browser.  At any rate, I've had trouble pulling up several of your blogs that I normally read, and last week, I wasn't able to make some basic changes to my sidebar.  Very, very frustrating; but let's move on to more pleasant things.

Hello September and Goodbye to Summer

I think a lot of people are ready for fall.  I'm always ready for fall, too, usually because it's been so boiling hot and humid here in North Carolina.  This year has been quite different in that respect.  We have had some very hot days, but overall, our summer here has been pretty mild temperature-wise.  If you disregard the earthquake that began in Sparta, North Carolina, and the hurricane that hit Oak Island a week after we visited there, well it's just been a very uneventful summer.  😏  
   
Welcome September 2020, my birthday month and the first month of fall.

Beatrix Potter Treasures

Are you a fan of Beatrix Potter?  I am, and I know there are many others out there as well.

Hello August!

Hello again everyone!  Thanks to those of you who commented on my last post, and especially those who are/were having the same problem as me.  We'll see how it goes in the future.  
      
Gosh, I have not done well keeping up with my blog this summer.  I think I can be forgiven with everything that's been going on around here.  My Bell's Palsy did clear up (thankfully) but it has caused some pain and difficulty of movement in my right jaw.  I'm hoping that will repair itself, too.  Our air conditioning system, which we've only had for seven years this summer, was leaking coolant and had to be repaired.  It had actually started to leak last summer, but we didn't get around to having it fixed then.  As Murphy's Law would have it, the weather got really hot and humid here (after what had been a very mild season) before we could get it fixed.  A new part had to be ordered, which was quite pricey, and once that arrived, we finally got everything repaired.  😰   Do you ever ask yourself how in the world people did without air conditioning years ago?  I'm constantly wondering that in the summertime.

Just A Quick Word

Hello all!  This is something of a test post because my husband just added word verification to my blog.  I hope it will only be needed for a short while.  I'm okay with the New Blogger format, except for one thing.  The Spam Flagging/Security must be zilch at the moment.  Some pervert has latched onto my blog and is leaving the most disgusting comments.  I'm neither amused nor impressed, believe me.  I have my settings checked for only comments from users with Google accounts.  These ridiculous comments are all labeled "Unknown" so one would think they wouldn't be getting through, but they are.  Several a day, in fact.  I've always had Comment Moderation, and it's a good thing, because I'd hate to think these comments would be on my blog posts for the world to see.  Whoever or whatever is sending these obviously has way too much time on his/her hands.
   
I'm going to publish this now to see if the word verification shows up in my comments area.  Please bear with me while I try to get rid of this mess.
