Brrr! Gosh, It's Nippy Outside!

November 28, 2017

Good morning.  The sun is shining, but oh my it is cold outside!  It's only 33F degrees.  I have to go out to the Post Office, but I'll wait a couple hours in hopes that it warms up a bit.  Temps are supposed to reach 40F degrees later on.  I may wait till tomorrow to do my other errands, as it will be a tad bit warmer then.  I think.

Well, yesterday I finished addressing all my envelopes, and wrote a few address labels for my packages.  I just have to put the stamps on all of the envelopes and they will be ready for mailing at the end of the week. 

Yesterday was a weird sort of day.  I kept busy doing goodness knows what, and by the end of the day I was too tired to even crochet.  So, no new rows got added to the green afghan.  I'm thinking that I may work on the Cranberry and Pink afghan next because the colors are warm and cheerful.  We'll see.

The Home Shopping Network had a super good sale on an HP laptop yesterday, and I was really tempted to buy one of them.  My laptop is so slow that it isn't much fun to work on it now.  It probably needs a good cleaning out, but I don't know how to do that.  I surely do miss Wayne.  He kept my laptop running much more smoothly.

Ah well, I'm slower these days too, so I guess I can learn to put up with my laptop.  At least for now.  I learned yesterday (from watching the shopping channel) that Windows 10 is going to remain the current version.  It will be updated whenever needed, but will not be followed by a new version each year.  That's a relief. 

I need to backup all my files again, and then maybe after that I'll try one of the "do it yourself" computer clean out programs.  Maybe.  I don't like to do things that might not work!  Especially to my laptop!  I'll have to look into the little local newspaper to see if there are any PC gurus looking for work.  Hmmm, that's a better idea.

Today I have the last of my nature quick pagers.  After that, I'll be working on Christmas pages.  This page features a couple of our larger animals.  I think they are beautiful, and I hope you do too.  Have fun with it.

Here is your download link:

Last night, I brought out Pogo's big fuzzy blanket from last Christmas, and oh my he was in heaven!  It's a really big blanket and there is so much of it to scrunch up.  He can sink down into the deep pile and be ever so cozy and warm.  I'll have to try to get some new photos of him in his blanket.

Well, the morning is going by, and I have to get dressed to go to the Post Office.  On that note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
I am catching up on your blog. I have forgotten and sure that you have told me, but do you have Windows 10? It is a totally different way of using Windows. I didn't think that I would ever figure it out and regretted it many times, but now that I know how to use it, I love it. I get all of the latest updates.
It takes a while to get used to it but when they offered it for free I went ahead and got it. They don't offer support for any of the other windows programs anymore.

Patsy told me last night that Adobe Photoshop 18 has an extractor on it that is just awesome. She said that extracting now takes just seconds compared to what she was using. Of course she is extracting for her kits and her hands are in bad shape so this has really helped her so much.

I tossed and turned most of the night. I am not as stiff today as I was the last 2 days so I will be doing some cleaning. Stay warm my friend and Thank you for the QP... I love it...
Hugs from Cisco and Beth xxx
