Have You Seen March 11th?

March 12, 2009

I'm not sure how it happened, but I seem to have lost March 11th. Yoo hoo - where are you?? This is not funny - I wake up, I do some stuff, next thing I know it's two days later. All I had to drink today was spring water and coffee. Maybe I should try some new brands?

While I was incapacitated, I did receive some beautiful awards. Give me a couple of days to digest this and think of who I can pass them on to, and I will post them here. My mind is working hard at getting back into work mode.

While I was in Florida, I learned how very important the internet has become to our daily lives. At least, mine! First thing in the morning, it's time to check your emails - Wrong! Can't do that, so we'll just check out the forum and see what's happening - Wrong! Can't do that either, so let's just go look in on some of our friend's blogs - Wrong! Drats! All you can do is sit and make layouts for challenges. And then at least, you can upload them - Wrong! Maybe I'll just chat on my blog about my wonderful flight from Boston to Orlando - Wrong!

It's really exasperating. I never realized how important the internet has become to me. It is my link to family and friends all over the world. It is my daily inspiration to keep on enjoying my wonderful new hobbies. And some days, it is my sanity. And I'm not the only person who is so beholden to the internet. There were other people using the same dumpster internet cafe that I used.

Before I left for home, I also found - and used - the McDonalds internet connection. You buy anything - a coke, sandwich, etc - and you get a coupon good for one hour of internet connection. I think this is fantastic!! You need more time? Just buy a 99 cent drink or other food item, and you get another coupon good for another hour. So remember this if any of you travel, and don't have an internet connection where you will be staying. Just look for a McDonalds and you might get lucky.

That's it from me today, but before I go, I'll share a layout I made for the Shutterbug Challenge at the Magickal Scraps forum. We were supposed to see how far away we could shoot with the zoom. While my laundry was washing and drying, I was watching a bumblebee going back and forth between two palm trees looking for his lunch, I think. I was on the ground and he was way up at the top of the trees, but my photo came out fairly decent. Enjoy, and y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Palm trees! Oh, I love palm trees!

Glad you found a nicer internet cafe than the dumpster! :) Welcome home, where the internet is always ready to take you where you need to go...except on March 11!
