Good morning. It's a gorgeous sunny day here in New England. It's going to get quite a bit warmer in just a couple hours, but right now it's just lovely. I guess the temps are going to stay in the 80's to low 90's for at least the next week. I sure do hope that Mother Nature has a little rain in store for us too.
Yesterday was such a fun day. Kevin, Jazzy, Pogo and I picked up Aunt Lucy and headed out to do a bit of fun craft shopping. Aunt Lucy was in charge of giving directions to Kevin (who was driving), but she was having so much fun chatting with Jazzy that she kept forgetting to tell Kevin which direction to go.
She kept Kevin and I laughing all the way. I think we took every back road, and drove along the Eastern shore line (which was simply beautiful) before arriving in the destination town to do some shopping. We went to Michael's Craft Store to check out the yarn department. Naturally, I found some that I simply had to have. How pretty are these? Cherrycola and Rosewood.
Aunt Lucy found some craft wire and another frame for her wreaths. Next we went into the Dollar Store, where I picked up a few more "word find" puzzle books, and Aunt Lucy got some spring water. Afterwards, we stopped at McDonalds, then found a nice shady spot to park and eat our lunch. Before heading home, we stopped at CVS because Aunt Lucy wanted some eggs. She was so amazed that you could actually buy eggs at a pharmacy. (Where has she lived all my life?) All in all, we had a fun day.
Now, to get back to my wicked day in Hell, Wednesday. It started out pretty good. My internet was working fine, and I read some of my emails before I got too busy. After lunch I decided to read the rest of my emails, only to find that the program was not working because my internet was not working. No biggie. I'll just call the cable company and get the internet straightened out.
Groan, groan!! Several hours later (all the while on the phone), after tech people changed my password several times, all that was accomplished was that the internet was working, just not my email program. Needless to say, I was beyond frustrated. I had photos of paperwork that I had to email out and now I couldn't.
I did everything I could think of to restore my email program, but it just wasn't going to happen. Once the cable techs starting fiddling with my password, that shut down my email. I don't know how to get into the workings of the email program to fix things so I put in a "I'm desperate" call to Wayne. (he doesn't do house calls anymore because his job takes most of his time now)
He said he would see if he could help, but he was leaving today to go on a mini vacation. There's a program on my laptop (that Wayne put there) that allows him to remotely go into my laptop to fix things. Last evening, he did this and Bless him, he got my email fixed and working. What in the world would I do without Wayne?
Yesterday afternoon, I took some photos of my Rose Of Sharon bush. It's starting to get tall now and is simply beautiful. I would really love to plant another one of these this year.
Today I'm waiting for a phone call from the police to set up an interview for my firearms license. Wish me luck. I also have to call Cliff to find out if he is coming by today to finish painting the front porch area.
Now I need to get dressed and wash a few dishes. So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
