Internet and Tatting

It has been a long 3 1/2 months with no Internet but they finally came today and we now have satellite Internet. It has been horrible not being able to keep in touch with my Tatting friends and write on my blog. Now I am going to be able to post on a regular basis and enjoy all that is Tatting on line.

Here is a picture of my latest Tatting and a quartz crystal ball that we have that has water inside of it that has been there for thousands of years. the ball is about 7 inches wide and came all the way from Hawaii.

I look forward to sharing a lot with you and hope that you will once again start to follow my blog.

I Am Alive

It has been a long time since I have blogged but the problem is we still do not have internet. When we first looked at getting internet we realized it was going to have to be by satellite because we live out in the boonies as they like to say. In January we looked at the available options and the best there was a package that gave you 2GB bandwidth and the cost was $150.00 a month plus another $150.00 to install the dish. The bandwidth would not be enough to do what we need so we gave up. Last week a new company started to offer satellite Internet and they are offering 6GB for $85.00 plus $20.00 for installation so we are trying to organize that for the next week or two and then I will be able to start posting on a regular basis again. In the meantime I have a couple of photo's for you.
The first is a shot of the sunset last night.

Then there are two pictures of some of the wildlife we have at our new home.

Praying Mantis

Yes a scorpion.
Keep well everyone and I will be posting soon.
