Everyone knows I have a love /hate relationship with Florida. One thing I never get tired of though are the sunrises and the sunsets. They are spectacular.
Sharing some of the many I have taken through the years. Most of these were taken all over Lake Kissimmee State Park and Rolling Meadows Ranch

Sarah’s Daily Life: Nothing Is Working: Is It Me Or Is It The Slow Internet and Computer Issues? June 10, 2015

Same Pic from Last night. Desk top and TV In the LR Where I am sitting now.

My Gateway: also posted last night. Where I sit during the day when I am not on the porch or on the desk top. I love looking out the French Doors. This is where the one deer always comes to.

My life right now is one big BORE.  I actually laughed at that so I must be in pretty good spirits.
It’s been raining again. Good for the grass seed. Bad for the flooding going on everywhere. The park is still flooded in places and has been for MONTHS.
Our section of Rolling Meadows Ranch is a bit higher so we actually dry out quickly. But that is not what this post is all about. Last night I rambled about the laptop not working.
Well after a restore …..uploading all the updates or most of them….some are still being added and after uploading Norton AGAIN….. With ALL of their updates…….The computer is working BETTER.
I said better.
Not great. Not even good. So I still need to tweak it some more. I usually can fix it.
If I can’t…and I pray I can…..Because EITHER I Leave it the way it is OR I ASK DANNY TO WORK ON IT.
Danny loves working on computers. Desktops. He loves building them. Which is why I have this desk top and he has just built himself one. His lap top was wearing out.
His GATEWAY, that I bought him crashed and burned a few years ago.
Mine Bought at the same time STILL WORKS AND WORKS WELL.
It is almost 9 years old.
I mentioned it last night also.
I bought the Gateways with the money I got after Bobby died. SO I am hanging on to MINE with everything I have. I have Danny’s and it is used for parts. It has EP on it. I thought of updating it. We really can’t afford to. I decided not to because It has so many programs on it I use all the time.
AN old Office program that I use for WORK. None of my other computers have one. So much more.
I am still in a RAMBLING MOOD….not sure why except Danny’s been working in his computer room…Working is not the right word but I will leave it for now. LOL.
I totally got of the subject:
Danny loves WORKING ON DESK TOPS…..
HE HATE WORKING ON LAP TOPS.
Mine especially. So I haven’t asked him to LOOK AT MINE. It will take him hours to fix it….probably.
To get back to the original subject: the title:
Word Press seems to be acting up.
I got tired of seeing
BEEP BEEP BOOP.
Danny just yelled out: “Do you have internet ?”
Well, that at least answers one question. Yes, I have internet but IT IS SLOW.
His came back on….
It does this all the time.
Still doesn’t explain not getting past the
BEEP BEEP BOOP…..
On any of the computers……
The lap top is still uploading programs.
So I guess I am stuck here for awhile.
Oh How did I get the lap top? Danny promised me a NEW one.
He found one.   A Returned New One from someone else…fixed and put on Amazon.  Cheap. Well under $100.00. So not the new one I wanted but I was very glad to get it.
Right after it came. Danny built the desk top and gave it to me.

So I went from an old computer I need to save to having 3 computers.
Still wondering when I get MY PHONE THAT WAS PROMISED 9 years ago?
But that is another ISSUE FOR ANOTHER DAY.
I am done with this post.
Aren’t you glad?

This is from my Our Neck Of The Woods Facebook Pagehttp://www.facebook.com/sarahsneckofthewoods. Our Life. Lake Kissimmee State Park, Rolling Meadows Ranch and Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park, Lake Wales, Florida. Where we work, live, play, cry and most of all Love each other.. Come and sit a spell. Danny and I share so much laughter and tears here, working and living here as we do. I needed a place to start downloading pictures I have taken over the years here. I need to write about them. I spend so much time wishing I was still living in Colorado that I forget what I have here. We really have a great life. I’m praying that once we finally get into the Cracker House things will get better-UPDATE- We are in the remodeled State Cracker House and it is better, although there are times I miss the RV. We lived it in for 5 years. It was home. It IS OURS…..I am also posting about Country Life in General and Florida in particular. Danny is a park ranger at Lake Kissimmee State Park. I volunteer there. I am a former teacher who misses being around kids.… I am mom who lost her only son, Bobby 9 years ago. I am a wife. I need to find me again. “Our Neck of the Woods” refers mostly to Rolling Meadows Ranch, were we live. It joins Lake Kissimmee State Park, on one side and Allen David Broussard’s Catfish Creek Preserve State Park on the other. We work mostly at LK and RM.
From Sarah Now. : Our Neck Of The Woods, Is all about  Our Life in the last 10 plus years. All about Our area and it’s history. About Life in Florida. It is about Danny and Sarah. Life at or around the park.

Reblogged From Elizabeth Peterson: No Regrets

https://thefuzzyoctopus.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/no-regrets/
From Sarah: Elizabeth’s  timing on this post is perfect.
Menopause has not been good to me.
I was sitting at my desk here, waiting for Danny to come out of his Computer Room where he’s been tied up since we got home from Walmart. I’ve had a sinus headache all day. So my mood hasn’t been all that good. I’d tried laying down but couldn’t fall asleep. I just KNEW Danny was going to come out and say: “Are you ready for a glass of wine?” It’s been our habit to have a glass or so of wine every night. We both look forward to that. I usually have a few snacks ready as well.
This was my first read of the day.
I’d been thinking of ALL the words I wanted to say to him. The ones I really shouldn’t say. The angry, bitter or whining words.
Danny hasn’t done anything wrong. I could always go in and just ask “How much longer”.
Yet, I sit and ponder ALL those WORDS.
So Elizabeth: Thank you.

Getting Framed. Re-blogging this from Elizabeth Peterson

I love Getting Framed..
From Sarah: This is a must read for those of you who truly miss your hubbies when they are traveling . I really enjoyed Elizabeth’s story.
I have a love /hate time when Danny is forced to travel for the state . Fortunately, he doesn’t have to travel very much any more and when he does I usually get to travel with him. One advantage of being a Volunteer at the state park.
I love “My time” at night. I lived for most of my life as a single mom so I sometime DO MISS the evenings spent alone.
I READ  or immerse myself in a series or marathon of movies.
I don’t have to make coffee . I am not a coffee drinker. I can’t stand the smell. Yet, I make it for Danny every night  so he has it in the morning.
Danny and I email, send message over the phone, chat for hours when he is away. Just like we did for the 2 years before I moved to Florida.
We spend hours a day together when he is not home.

But then we spend HOURS together when he is home.
What I do Miss . We have a King Size bed and I usually end up with enough space to lay down and not fall out.
So you would think I’d crave the whole bed to myself.
I hate it. I really HATE IT. Danny will cuddle me ALL Night most nights……
I need that time with him…
I miss not being there when he walks out the door of where he is staying. I hate not watching his truck leave in the morning.
Then at night , I hate not seeing his truck coming back home from the park.
Every day, rain or shine…I watch him leave and then I watch him come home.

I am glad Danny does not have to travel very often . I am glad he chooses NOT to when he can. Or that I can tag alone at other times.

This will be the first time I have tried to write a post like this with lot’s of pictures and descriptions.
We had a rather uneventful week here on Rolling Meadows Ranch (RMR). Or at least I did.
Danny worked at the park all week. We are still in the busy season and full of Snowbirds.
When he gets home , we are glued here. We don’t have company. We don’t go anywhere if we can help it.
I stayed around RMR all week.
