Need your help

I can make a quilt, bake a pie, grow my own flowers, carry on an intelligent conversation about a lot of subjects, plus I have learnt a lot things, good and bad during my years on this earth,  however, my knowledge of computer programs is limited to almost nothing.

I am in the process of changing my internet carrier and therefore will have a new e-mail address. 

How do I change my e-mail address when I sign into my blog.  I have looked everywhere here but I am either not seeing it, not going to the right location or .........???

If anyone can give me some direction I would appreciate it.   So hoping blogger friends can help me.

Thank you.

Was that Spring and Summer? Brrrrrrrrr

For the past couple of weeks we have had sunny skies, warm, if not hot temps at times, even prompted some friends to turn on their A/C.  Today, it is windy and down right cold.  Forecast tonight is close to the zero *C, the sky is clearing and we are at risk for a frost ,so will have to cover the annuals that I purchased last week.

Closed all of the windows and cooked dinner in the oven tonight, which took the chill of the kitchen and dining area.   May contemplate turning on the furnace later.

Computer programming is my son's job, and because I  know nothing about computers, he is doing all the necessaries on my new lap top.  In return, I was asked to do some sewing.  So that is what I did this afternoon, not quilting, but covering three pillows for my son and daughter in laws bed.
She gave me some left over fabric from the new drapes she has just had made.  The fabric was terrible to work with, never had anything like it before. It was shiny and slippery and unravelled like crazy.  I had threads of it all over me and the floors.   I can't imagine making drapes from this fabric, but if you are a professional you know all the tricks of the trade and have all the gadgets required to work on almost anything.

Busy weekend coming up, so not much quilty sewing will be done until early next week.

Do you ever have those days when you feel down, and you don't know why?   Yesterday and again today I am in one of those moods.  Not much energy to get myself moving to do anything, heaven knows there is always lots to do. 

There are lovely flowers blooming in my garden that I can see through my patio door, lots of projects in my sewing room to be worked on,  a cupboard and fridge full of food, money in the bank and no health concerns.   So..........

Could it be the weather,  maybe, last week it was sunny and hot for this time of the year, now!  dull, cloudy, windy, and cold.  We had a frost warning last night so I covered up several of my outside plants, and the forecast is looking much the same for tonight. 

So here I am every shade of blue you can think of, hopefully, the colour will change tomorrow.
