I think that the time to return to blogging is finally here. I seem to finally have more spare time. Life got really busy and I got myself very tired... and then it was the old slow computer woes, the old car problems, shopping for a new vehicle, getting the house ready for the Merry Maids prior to getting family visitors and being sick for a whole month, getting a new computer and having all the pipes frozen in the barn and all the bad weather etc.

In early December I got sick with a very bad cold that lasted over a month and it left me totally exhausted. I'm finally feeling my old self again.  I've noticed the daylight time is getting longer and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I'd had been having some security concerns and other small issues with my old and new my new computer and when I got my son in law, Bill to take a look at it yesterday, he got everything to work as it should with some minor adjustments here and there. I  had even stopped commenting on blogs because my computer was telling me the blog sites I was visiting were not secured sites.  I think it's a Blogger issue as so many blogger sites are no longer secure.  The regular blog sites I was visiting no longer had that little green padlock icon with https:// at the top of the page and it made me nervous.

Here is the little padlock that I'm talking about at the top of the page.  it used to show an "i" icon instead of the padlock and when I clicked on the "i" icon, it would tell me that the site was not secure and how many cookies were there.

To secure my site, I went to Settings and clicked.

For an unknown reason, my https was set on no and I have no idea how that happened. I clicked on that little arrow and clicked on Yes and I got my blog secured again.

And that's my little blogging for today.
I hope you are all coping with this unusual winter without too much trouble.
Stay safe and well.
Hugs, Julia
