Spring, Glorious Spring!

I have been energized by the warmer weather,
 the sun, the flowers the birds. 
I didn't realize it, but I think I was actually getting kind of depressed.

I actually have some daffodils in my yard, but for some reason the program that I use to upload my pictures from my camara to my computer is not working recently.  So I borrowed this picture. 

(I thought maybe it had something to do with blogger, so I went in to blogger and did an update, based on a recommendation from another blogger--several people were having trouble with their pictures uploading very slow from their files)
Let me just say, I am less than thrilled with this update.  It uploads the pictures faster from my files.  But it keeps wanting to help; for example, today it won't let me type in normal fashion.  I guess because I have pictures, it keeps centering everything.  Also, if I pause to think, it jumps back up to the beginning of my script.

BUT--I digress!

  Spring, Spring, I heard a robin sing
I'm glad because it's Spring again!
Spring, Spring, it makes me want to sing
I want to play ball, I want to jump rope,
and roller skate again I hope,
In good, old Spring.

This is a song we used to sing as kids.  I think I would modify it--instead of saying "roller skate",
I would say "and ride my bike again I hope", since I've made plans to ride bike this spring.

Ok!  Energized or not, my computer is driving me crazy this morning, so I will stop.

I trust most of you by now are enjoying warmer temperatures and some sunshine,
as well as enjoying His Sonshine.

(By the way, I've been using Walgreen's Photo Express to upload my pics from my camara.
I think I need to change.  What are some of you using?)

I use a local company called Richmond Camera. It is a few cents different in cost, but the quality is far above the rest.

We can't help but be uplifted by the warmer temps, sunshine and return of flowers! I'm glad you took time to enjoy spring.

I use Lexar Media Camera Wizard Software to upload my photos, it's quick and easy.

I haven't updated to the new editor yet...I'm wondering if I even should.

I haven't had any trouble with the new blogger editor. It's been actually much easier for me than the old one. As far as uploading my photos I just put my SD chip in my computer and pick out my photos from there. I guess everyone has a different set up. I think if you keep exploring Donna you figure it out. That's what I do. Good luck and enjoy this gorgeous weather!
Love Di ♥

Sorry about your blogger problems, so many are going through the same thing right now.
I haven't changed over to the new editor either and don't think I will.
I use Picassa to upload/download pictures and even can order prints off my computer program if I want, I love this program and how it keeps all my photos organized. I back up my photos on a regular basis as well.
Glad you are enjoying the nice weather Donna, it has turned nice here as well but not nearly as warm as where you are.
.........:-) Hugs

We had our first thunderstorm today with storm with the Robins and a tint of green on the tree's I feel like Spring has sprung. We can still get snow, so I am not putting all of my winter clothes away just yet. I stay with the tried and true with my blog. I have no one to help me and if something works I leave it alone. I do at times wish I had a more interesting back ground.

I have to ask, where are you from? I haven't heard that "Spring, Spring" song in about 50 years, and I'm wondering if it was just a local thing or something that had once been known all over the country.
