Internet Gods

I continue to make cards and I just love this paper.  Reminds me of the shore. 

Awhile back my Dell laptop died, again. So we went to Best Buy to price out a new one.  We ended up getting  a Lenovo all in one.  The size of the screen appealed to both of us. As did the price.  It sits on the dining room table along with Jim’s laptop.  A year ago when we bought our recliners I lost my way to sit comfortably with my laptop.  So we’ve been sharing the table. I think we need a proper desk!

Since the resort is so full the free WiFi is very, very slow and at times goes away completely.  We do have a hotspot on our phones and plenty of data so we’ve had to use it.  But! At times even that is slow and goes away.   Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to access a website and all it does is spin?The internet gods must not like this area or perhaps it’s the lousy weather.

Yesterday I mention the cold’s here.  About 46 degrees outside at 0830.  All gray and gloomy outside.  Just a slight breeze.  I’m not sure how many tanks of propane we’ve used this winter. I’m sure it’s more than we’ve used in the last two years.

Warmed up (if you can call it that) to a balmy 55.  But no sunshine.

Dinner is Mexican Rice and cornbread

Back at Work

For the last six days we’ve been off and we’ve tried to stay busy. We’ve both taken the opportunity to read several books.  Our weather keeps us indoors when it’s wet, cold and gloomy.

Jim managed to get the truck cleaned up yesterday. It was filthy!  For once it was sunny and warm. He also dumped the black tank and did some putzing around outside, weather permitting of course.

When the weather is bad we usually head to the mall to walk.  This is good because we don’t spend money.  But when we go to Costco to get in some steps we always manage to find something we can’t live without.  We also take advantage of Barnes and Nobles when it’s nasty outside.  What’s not to like?  We can read magazines and enjoy a cup of coffee.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to play with my paper.  My supplies are all over the place and walking in front of Jim or getting into cabinets over his head is something I don't like to do.  I guess I should go back to working on my cards when he's asleep.  I get up much earlier than he does.

Once again the weather is turning nasty.  A cold front is blustering it's way in.  The progressive dinner is going to be cold and windy.  It's 1400 and the temperature is 50 degrees.  I wonder if it will rain too?  Not my idea of fun traipsing around outside, carrying chairs to eat a four course matter how much wine they have!  I hope all those attending enjoy or at least drink enough wine to not care about the weather.

That's about it from here.  Just wanted to update you
