We've always used Norton for our anti-virus protection. But it appears that this year, Norton has discontinued their anti-virus software and gone to a full-fledged security package ... which my laptop does NOT like! After installation, I noticed a tremendous slowdown in the operation of my laptop ... when typing, I can sometimes type up to 20-25 characters before a single one appears on the screen. Same thing when I am scrolling through a website ... I keep scrolling down only to realize that the screen is "frozen" ... when it "unfreezes" I find myself at the bottom of the page instead of a few lines down. Grrrr. Finally I decided that I'd had enough! While searching through my options, I realized that our internet provider offers a free security package. I have no way of knowing if it'll be any better, but I'm willing to take the chance. It surely can't be any worse, can it? I'm installing it now ... and have my fingers crossed.
Our garden is coming along nicely. We've got blossoms on our tomatoes and cucumbers and our beans are climbing their fences. I can't wait until we start getting fresh veggies from our garden.
I took the Ts to swim practice yesterday morning so Mama could take a test. T#4 wanted to help me as I was working on my EPP bow ties, so she organized my EPP tote.
I took my EPP with me to the first summer team meet last night. I got in a few stitches as we waited for the meet to start. T#1 and #3 swam quite a few of the early events (and did well) with a big break later in the evening ... unfortunately by then it was too dark for me to be able to see well enough to stitch. <sigh>
Speaking of swimming, T#2 was able to participate in this morning's practice. Yes, she got her waterproof cast! She is one happy girl! And I'm happy for her. I can't wait to see her swimming again. Hopefully by the next meet (Tuesday), she'll have full range of motion in that arm.
DH and I are planning a road trip for next month. He's been wanting to take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway for the longest time. I can't say that I'm looking forward to it as much as he is, but I'm sure that we'll have a great time ... any time we spend together is always a good time. ;-) Maybe I can find a quilt shop along the route? Ha!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
