....in the Black Hole of Calcutta,
more commonly known as,
It is still touch and go here.
My computer, now referred to as
"Christine" (a la Stephen King),
continues to have a sadistic streak
and a mind of its own.
Viruses have been found,
tricky moves have been made
by my youngest, who is very good
with computers....but still
there are problems.
My husband, sweet man, told me yesterday
that a new one is on its way to me.
I have threatened to take the chain saw
to Christine, to throw her in the creek..
all to no avail.
Let us move on, lest all of this attention
go to her head and she throws
another curve ball my way.
Our weather has been "interesting".
Wind, rain, fog, hail and snow.
Now and then Mother Nature relents
and parts her pewter drapes to remind me
that, yes, the sun does still exist.
In place of spending time here,
I have been reading my little eyes out.
I have discovered a treasure
in Elizabeth Taylor's books. Not the actress,
but the English writer. (thanks, Ginnie of Becoming)...
first time read on Cranford,
Ruth and Wives and Daughters...
finally read Water for Elephants,
and, Heavens, David Copperfield.
Am just starting The Book of Tea.
And, yes, I am still taking showers, brushing my teeth,
cooking meals and doing laundry.
Thanks to all who left lovely and caring comments
on my last post.
I am hoping that I will be able to catch up
with all of you before the next crash.
I will leave you with unrelated pics. I took the other day.
Peace to all.
Hoping soon to be up and running with a new "machine".
Pictures in the Pitcher
Well, that was fun (NOT!)
Thirteen tries..I am afraid to hit the Publish button.
I can't afford to pull any more of my hair out,
nor take anymore years off of my life.
best to all, e.
