Rural Thursday - Blog Hop # 19


This amazing home is in Buchanan, Va...I could so easily live there! Took the boys to Buchanan's little theater on Saturday to see Red Tails. It was pretty good. Some of you might remember when I showed you the theater last week or so.

Today is my little girl's last day of high school. Man oh man how those years have just sailed by. Sunday there is a Baccalaureate party for the graduating class at a local church. Then next week is the actual graduation ceremony.

Tomorrow I'll be heading to Jamestown with my boys and their 4th grade classes. Looking forward to that. Rain is in the forecast. Need to buy an umbrella today.

Still having issues with the photo uploads. I have always had my photo size set to large. I don't think I have extra large as an option but if I do, it is checked because I do know that I have it set to the biggest size, always have. All of a sudden a few months ago blogger changed something so that my pictures uploaded smaller, just happened one day without me changing any formatting. I googled the issue and found a way around it by changing the html and that worked. Now it changed again for some strange reason and it won't change the size now by changing html. Yesterday I used Photobucket to upload it but it ended up posting even larger than I wanted and changed the whole look of my blog. I don't have the time right now to investigate this further so for now that's how I'm going to do things but it's just so frustrating to me to not be able to figure this out! And TexWis, you asked me if I was on old or new interface the other day. Once again I've been switched to the new interface. Blogger just changed the interface on me recently, yet again, although this time I have no option to switch back to the old interface.

I don't understand how there can be so many of us on Blogger, yet it's different for some of us....anyway, end of long boring rant about my picture problems!

Did anyone watch the Hatfields and McCoys series on the History Channel this week? It was really good. Incredibly sad story.

Linking up with Rural Thursday!

Updating about the double pictures now lol....I just got done messing around with the html and it worked and is back to normal size again so you'll just have to bear with the double picture post today because I need to remember what I did to change the size lol...but who knows, what worked today may not work tomorrow!


  1. that house looks like my size, ill take it. Congrats to your daughter.

  2. Tanya, Congrats to your daughter! I remember my last day of HS, and that was 44 years ago! Sorry about your photo formatting woes, I feel your pain, sometimes that kind of thing makes you want to scream and tear your hair out, it makes not sense! Love your shot though, what a stately home, would you love to see inside?

  3. I wish I could watch Hatfields and McCoys, but we don't get any tv channels. I ran the Hatfield McCoy marathon a few years ago - it was fun (but hot, and mountainous!)

    Oooh, have fun at Jamestown!!

  4. It's a fine looking house. You have many family events coming up. These kids do grow up so very quickly. I'm glad you figures out your pictures size.

  5. Beautiful house! Congrats to your high school grad! The time sure does fly. BTW, I had one heck of a time getting my post to be right on blogger yesterday. Maybe there's an imp at work there.

  6. Bummer! I wanted to watch the Hatfields and the McCoys. I missed it. Gah!

    I'm too Midwest to feel comfortable in a grand southern looking home like that. It sure is lovely though.

    Thanks for linking.


  7. it is pretty amazing that everyone's options seem to be different - i can still get to the old interface, but i've heard from several that can't. weird. and my posts have photo sizes available from small to XL just from the 'new post' menu. never have to mess w/ html.

    anyway, glad you've found a work-around again! pretty home!

  8. That house is so pretty. I could see myself living there.

    I recorded the Hatfield's and McCoy's. Will probably watch it this weekend.

  9. Sorry for the Blogger problems you are having.

    Oh my, that's a lovely grand house, you aren't the only one who could easily see it as a home! :-)

  10. What a beautiful house that is!! Congratulations to your daughter and have fun with the boys in Jamestown! We watched The Hatfields and McCoys, enjoyed it very much.
    In order for me to change the size of my pictures after loading them on by blog, I have to click on them and then I get the option to change the size, add a caption, etc.

  11. That is a lovely home! What fun for your daughter, embarking on this next phase in life :0)

  12. A beautiful home! Congrats to your daughter!

  13. I have no idea what interface is but I do know that a few weeks ago I couldn't do anything on Blogger until I upgraded to Google Chrome. It drives me crazy when they change things because I don't have the time to learn new stuff! Will you please leave well enough alone?!

    Congratulations to your daughter!

  14. Beautiful house! I love all the windows! Congratulations on your daughter's graduation!

  15. Gorgeous home -- I love the fence!

    Yay for your daughter! And yay for you, mom. :)
