I give up!

After putting way too many (late) hours into editing a little video of our recording project, with my computer repeatedly stalling, I realize that it is just not going to work. I even cut the project into three parts (okay, one part got accidentally deleted) and while I can watch it in the MovieMaker program, I can't save it as a file! So I will have to hand over all the pieces, along with the original tapes and the camera to Sr Tracey to put something totally original together in her little Mac. (Suffice it to say that my six-year-old laptop almost got the boot today...)
On the plus side, Sr Margaret Charles and Sr Bernadette Mary and I went to our back hill after supper and spent a half-hour picking wild raspberries and blackberries. We got over a half-gallon of those magnificent rubies of nature. (The raspberry patch had been ruthlessly cut down and even dug up a few years ago, but the thorny bushes just popped up this year in a new spot!) So there's a little treat for breakfast... for tomorrow's great feast of St. Ignatius (a.k.a. "Iggy").

Many thanks for making a widget out of your blog. Just installed it, and working great.

The rubies of nature are spectacular! And, indeed, magnificent!

Just curious as to whose hand is holding those succulent berries. If that is your hand I presume that those gifts of nature have found another dwelling place..guess where

Aw, that's alright. I use a six year old laptop all the time and know how difficult it is :-P ... I hope Sr. Tracey can make the video though. I'm looking forward to it!
