It took me a full 6 hours, but I got the laptop set up Tuesday … although I did have to do a little more work yesterday and again this morning. Wow … I sure didn’t remember it taking this long last time. I certainly don’t remember encountering as many problems last time as I did this time. And I certainly didn’t expect to encounter problems installing some programs on my new laptop … programs that run perfectly well on my old laptop encountered problems (installed with very limited functionality or wouldn't install at all) on the new one (both operate with Windows 7). I had to upgrade my email program ($$$) … because the old program was no longer supported by Microsoft, all attachments were blocked (for security). What good is an email program if I can’t open attachments?
By the time I finished setting up the laptop, I was worn out … DH brought home carry-out and we watched the hockey game (flipping over to the World Series during the intermissions).
Thankfully I was rested enough yesterday to get in plenty of time with my needle and thread. Just in time as my callous was about to disappear. I’m almost halfway done with the final row of outer-row blocks on T#1’s spiral log cabin. I’m hoping to get that row finished today so I can start on the border. I was hoping to get this quilt finished and gifted before we leave for “paradise”, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen.
The forecasted low for Friday evening keeps getting revised … lower! Now we may well get temps in the lower 20s! Definitely time to break down the garden. The advantage to having not gotten around to potting some annuals this summer is that I don’t have to bother with cleaning them up this fall.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
