Trying to Trick Blogger So I Can Post
I guess it worked. I can't see past the first paragraph to see if the rest of the post is there. But at least something showed up before the ad.
I am so fed up with blogger! I keep getting video ads when I try to post, when I try to read other blogs, and when I was trying to change my background I couldn't get to the edit button for a ad. There are no places to click to make the ad go away, so it just stays there in your way. I have been using Firefox but was told if I use Google chrome I can use their pop up blocker to get rid of the problem. Am going to try and see how that works. I have goggle chrome on my laptop but just haven't taken the time to get use to using it. Right now I am writing this post in Microsoft words and will move it to post and see how that goes. Thanks everyone for all the advice on how to get around the problem. I know blogger needs to make money and don't mind the ads in the corner I can click to delete. I just hate having ads I didn't choose stay in front of things I need to do or see and have no way to delete or see around them.
Around the homestead is busy as ever. Trying to get a lot done before I head to the mountains the end of September. I will stay up there a few weeks and then come back for a wedding and a few things here before heading to the cabin for the winter. William hopes to be there by Thanksgiving. We are still slowly selling chickens. With the price of feed no one is buying more than one or two at a time. We want to get down to 15 or 20 to take to the mountains and have a ways to go. We have so many here because we have big egg customers that buy 10 to 15 dozen at a time. We won't have that in the mountains. We also have a few more rabbits to sell and several ducks. We are going to wait until the very end to sell Mammie and Buttons as we are using their milk. Will be taking Lil Vicki, Rosemary, and Mary with us. Hope to have them bred before they go up.
Garden is completely gone now. After being underwater so long from all the rain most if it died and the rest we just finished picking last week. We are going to have a small fall garden or at least try. I have been canning everything I can get my hands on. Want to be ready for a good old mountain winter! We have also been splitting and hauling firewood for here. Whoever is here will need firewood to heat the house and we will be back and forth a few days at a time and want to make sure there is plenty of wood. Have been helping William with some of his handyman jobs so that has slowed me down on homestead projects. There is a craft fair September 14th that I am trying to get ready for. Hope to have some handpainted signs and well as my soaps for sale. William is wanting to make laying houses for chickens. I think they will sell too. Just like everyone else we have lots to do but not lots of time. Hope you are enjoying the last days of summer and your days are filled with blessings! I am counting down till fall !!
