Good morning. Tis sunny and the temperature is 48F degrees. In a few hours, temps will be in the low sixties. A simply lovely day! I have a few things to do today, then Deanne will be coming by for a visit. Later, after Pogo has his turkey treat, I think I'll make a quick run to the market and pick up a few things. We have a few days of rain coming up next.
I did not tackle the new laptop yesterday or last night. Instead I got rid of another bag of junk mail, catalogues and magazines. I also spent a bit of time looking through my new book :How Do I Do That In Photoshop" by Scott Kelby. Each page answers just one thing. You look up the thing you are trying to do, and it will give you the page number where you can find the answer. Very interesting!
While I was going through a batch of magazines, I found a couple of items that I thought might share with you. The first is a recipe for am easy Smoked Sausage Skillet dish. I make one similar to this and it is delicious.
I also found a page with some rather interesting facts on it. Be sure to click on the picture so that it gets bigger and you can read it better.
Last evening, I did a couple of puzzles on my (old) laptop while I watched the kids baking championship on TV. I fell asleep rather early, so I woke up in the wee hours of the night. This wasn't so bad though because I managed to pick up a couple of gift items from the TLC program on TV. Sometimes they have some awesome deals during the night.
I'm hoping my puzzle program works on my new laptop, so I looked it up online and read the customer reviews. Someone had asked if it would work on Windows 10, and the answer was yes. So I have high hopes that I'll be able to do my jig saw puzzles on the new machine. I plan to spend some time with the new laptop after I finish going through a couple more bags of magazines, etc.
Can you get the Game Show Network on your TV? Their newest game show is called "Common Knowledge." It's sort of a trivia game and I find it quite interesting. Another new game show that I like is called "America Says." It's so refreshing to be able to watch a clean, fun adult show.
I used to enjoy watching "Family Feud" which calls itself a family show. However, a lot of the questions are no longer geared for a family. A lot of times, contestants are teenagers and/or clergy and many of the questions are very embarrassing and just not suitable. This tends to take away the enjoyment of the game for me.
Today, I'm watching for the mail carrier again. My other new book should be coming today. Woo Hoo! I'm hoping that with the help of these two new books I'll be able to find my way around the new version of Photoshop.
Now I think I'll put load of laundry into the washer, then do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
