I was planning to post a Weekend Wrap-up, but enough time has passed that I’m not sure that I remember enough to put together a respectable WW. Let’s just say that nothing turned out like I had planned, it was a beautiful wedding in a gorgeous setting, and there was considerable time spent behind the wheel. I’m still trying to recover.
I finally broke down and ordered a new laptop last Thursday. Mine has been giving me fits for about a year now … and it’s really been unreliable the last couple of weeks. Rather than risk it dying and taking all my data with it (I do back up my data, but you and I both know that it would die right several days after my last back up). Since I keep our financial records (including tax returns) on my laptop, I didn’t want to take that risk … besides, it’s still possible to purchase a PC/laptop with Windows 7, which was enough to compel me to replace that laptop sooner rather than later. It should be delivered some time today.
We used our GPS while away this past weekend as we were in a new (to us) area … I need to figure out how to change its settings as it directed DH a good third of the 450 miles before finally directing him to the interstate.
Yesterday was a “play day” at DD’s … I think we both needed a little break from our normal routines. That meant I didn’t get any time with my needle and thread … and with today being spent setting up my new laptop, I may not get much needle and thread time today.
We’ve got cold weather coming this weekend, with a possibility of a hard freeze … time to get out and pick the last of the green beans and tomatoes before breaking down the garden. And maybe time to put the flannel sheets on the bed?
Conversation at Cracker Barrel when we stopped for dinner on our way home Sunday:
T#3: I don't believe in Rudolph. Reindeer can't fly.
Mama: Well, how does Santa get around?
T#3: He walks. (Complete with an exasperated look on his face)
T#4: Yes they do. (Pointing to the deer mounted over the hearth)
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
