Chilling Out and Staying Warm in Texas

What to do when it's cold outside? Well, how about cooking, watching movies and playing on the computer? I'm sure there are other suggestions. But we'll just talk about these here. (LOL!)

We finished with Ferd's maintenance in Nacogdoches in shorter time than anticipated, since our refrigerator decided to begin working flawlessly again. Why go through the hassles of replacing it now when it's purring along, right? Time to get down the road again. But, not too far this time.

Since we were only 90 miles from our mail service at the Escapees park in Livingston, we stopped in for a few days. The park's a nice place to layover for laundry and catching up on chores. Of course, it is cold here, as in most of the rest of the country. It's been in the teens at night and about 40 deg. for the daytime high. Although the sun is shining brightly; so a walk is great.
What better to do when it's cold outside than to make a pot of chili, watch movies and play on the computer. Jerry made some fantastic, spicey, chicken chili that warmed the "inards." We've been wanting to watch the John Adams HBO series on DVD that our good friend Karen recently loaned us. So now we are now up to Part VI.
Of course, I've also been playing on the computer. I needed some time to explore with Picasa photo software and YouTube and other things. So, here's one of my experiments: Looking Back at 2009. It's about three minutes of selected photos.

The first link is to Picasa albums online. Please click here: Movie Link. The quality seems inferior so I'll have to investigate that. If you have to know my email address in Picasa, it would be nhurley1010 at gmail dot com.

The second experiment is with uploading through Blogger below.

Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think and what you do to post videos, slideshows, etc. Is this too long, or maybe you have a better way. Would love to hear from you in our comments section or by email.

Meanwhile, stay tuned and stay warm!
