Ooooh, White Stuff!!!

February 24, 2012

Good morning from snowy New England.  What a surprise to see the snow coming down this morning!  I should have watched the weather channel last night.  Instead, Tootsie and I were enjoying our favorite programs on fashion design.   As a youngster, I had dreams of being a famous designer, but the closest I got was to be making all my own clothes and my kids' clothes. 

I think I finished my list of computer programs for Wayne, and dug out the important disks.  Anything that I may have forgotten (and I'm sure there's plenty) will just have to wait until after I get back from Florida.  I even made a phone call from my new phone.  Woo Hoo!!  I just might make it into the age of smart technology. 

On top of that, I bought and downloaded a book onto my Nook tablet.  Plus, I got me a few free books.  I'll work on downloading library books and maybe an audio book when I get to Florida.   I backed up all my PC files onto an external hard drive, so while I'm in Florida, I'll start to clean out those files and get rid of duplicates.  At least that's what I have planned for my first week.

I have a couple of photos to share that I just took a little while ago.  The first photo is just to remind us that we really did have some snow this winter, and the second one shows the rhodies thriving in the snow.

While I was at Best Buy the other day, I asked the technician to show me how to shut off the touchpad on my little laptop.  I like to use a mouse, and that darn touchpad makes it very difficult to type.  Now I'm a lot happier with my little laptop.

I think all I still need to do before we leave on our trip is to pack the suitcase.  My carry on has all my important stuff in it.  Camera, laptop, Nook tablet, chargers, meds, tickets and purse stuff.   And I think I've decided to take the stroller with us.  So it's a little extra work for the person pushing our wheelchair, too bad Harry!  I'll be sure to give him/her a nice tip.  I also have to make sure to give away any food that might spoil.  I'd rather someone use it.

Now I must get busy here.  The Mrs will be awake soon and be wanting her breakfast.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Real snow is so much prettier than fake snow.

we've had some snow at night but gone in the morning for a couple of nights. That's okay, but I'd rather is just stay away now. Too late, Ma Nature, you had your chance at snow for this winter, you blew it, see ya in November. Know what I mean?

Glad things are going well with your relationship with the Nook and Smart Phone now! And isn't it nice to see the snow when you're leaving it?? :)

Have a fabulous day!
Hugs, Nani

Sorry for the snow!
Today it looks to be sunny here, I will try the temps later today.
Looks as if you are almost set and ready to go on holiday!
I found you a little you tube film for your Nook, and be sure to check all the other ones at the right side might give you some ideas.
Don't know if it will be of any help, but why not give it a try?
Curious to know what you think of it.
Have a lovely weekend
