Happy Thanksgiving





Hi Everyone,

I am just popping in for a few minutes to apologize for the confusion on my blog, I had to shut down the blog for a few days because it appeared I was somehow targeted by an inappropriate site. I noticed in my traffic feed I was getting a large number of hits from an unwanted source.

I am now assured these were computer generated and not typical hits,so I am turning the Blog back on and I will monitor the traffic for a few days.

Thank you for all your kind emails expressing your concerns, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian
friends

Carolyn .

Dear Carolyn, I am so happy to be able to read your blog once again. I was considering writing to you via snail mail because I wanted "permission to read" your blog! I am glad to read that all is well once again.
Your hydrangeas are exquisite.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Carolyn...
I was so worried I would never be able to enjoy your beautiful blog again. I thought it probably served me right for never commenting.
Now...I have another chance. :-)

I really love, love, love your gorgeous home and gardens and would miss coming here so very much if it all went away.

Thank you very much for sharing your lovely surroundings with all of us.

I have been so blessed by your blog and was so sad to think I couldn't see the beauty you create anymore. What a huge blessing to see you back on, an answer to my prayers.
Blessings, Debbie

Hi Carolyn,
I love your blog and was trying to figure out how to contact you to get "permission" to access you blog again. Sorry about the problems but happy you're up and running again.

Hi Carolyn,
I was panic stricken when I could not get to your blog. I have enjoyed reading it for several years. You are a true inspiration! Happy Thanksgiving!

So happy to see you are back! I love checking out your site and must say you do inspire me. I'll never have the gardens but do have many old dishes etc from my Mom and Aunt and now am not afraid to use or display them. Thanks for sharing your home.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Carolyn. We are looking forward to Thanksgiving in about 6 weeks! I'm glad you are back. It is so scary to feel targeted. My blog was hacked and taken from my control in 2011 for about two months. So frustrating and scarey. Glad you are ok.

Happy Thanksgiving, Carolyn! So happy to see you back on. Isn't it wonderful to have sons who can fix things up for us? Your hydrangea wreath is just gorgeous; love the colours. Enjoy the day with your family.

Your hydrangea wreath is wonderful! I never thought of doing that ~ thank you.

Joann Heidt said...

I too am really happy this hasn't gone away. I was frantic trying to figure out how to contact you and get on your list. I wouldn't get my 'fix' every day with so much beauty. Joann

Hi Carolyn
Someone took over my old domain The Summer Porch ages ago my entire blog vanished. If you scroll down your blog list you'll see The Summer Porch has posted and this may have caused your problem. It would be best to delete this off your side bar.

Hugs

Love the Hydrangeas Carolyn, such beautiful colours. Sorry to read about your "invasion" problems. There are some rotten "beings" out there.Shirley N.Z.

shirlgirl said...

Well, I am like all of these other readers, wondered how I could contact you to be invited to read your blog. I am so very glad you are back up and running because I missed seeing your blog very much. I have heard of some other blogs having problems and I hope that you don't have any more. Thank you for all of the trouble you go to for others to enjoy.
