I've Been A Real Busy Bee!

October 28, 2015

Good morning.  It's early, so it's still dark outside.  Do you believe it?  It's 6:40 a.m. and it is dark outside!!!  This will change a bit next Sunday when we will turn the clocks back for daylight savings.  Can you imagine?  It's already that time to adjust the clocks.  Where oh where has the whole year gone? 

As you can see, this was a "short sleep" night for me.  I did manage to get a few hours of sleep, but by 4 a.m. I was wide awake again.  So I had me a cup of coffee while I got caught up on some of my emails and played a bit on my laptop.

I have the shopping channel on, and I have to tell you about the item they are presenting right now.    It's a 24" tablet.  You obviously cannot carry this around with you, so I guess you just leave it on a table or countertop so that anyone can use it.  Hmmm, why not just plug your tablet into a TV if you need a really large screen? 

Well, I'm glad to say that yesterday was a very productive day for me.  Monday night I got an email from Vista Print, but I did not get to open it until yesterday morning.  Oh my, it's for a great sale on calendars and Christmas cards.  However, the offer would expire at 11 p.m. last night. 

Woe is me, I haven't designed my calendars or cards yet.  So, right after I finished yesterday's blog post, I got busy making final photo selections for the calendar and getting them all properly re-sized.  Next, I spent a few hours designing my Christmas card.  Actually, I made two of them, and while SIL Eddie was here I let him help me decide which card to use.  We both decided on  the same card.

I finished all of this a little before eight o'clock last evening.  Then I went online to Vista and finished putting my calendar photos into the proper templates.  Once I had placed my order for the calendars, I  chose the template for my Christmas card and placed an order for these.

Phew!!  It took all day and most of the evening, but it was worth it.  The sale was for 50% off the regular price for printing both of these items.  Yup, it was a very good day.

Last evening, I ran across an article on Facebook that I found disturbing so I looked it up on  Google.  It seems that a company called "Snoopwall" is saying that your personal information on your cell phone has been hacked if you have downloaded the flashlight Ap to your phone. 

When I went online to look this up to verify it, I also found another article about this company.  They sell a product called "Antivirus Privacy Firewall" that is supposed to be safe, but in fact will mess up your cell phone.  So before you install either of these items, do look them up on Google first.

Goodness, while I've been typing here, daylight happened.  The temperature is 35F degrees, and hopefully will get up to around 57F later this morning with possibly some rain.  Tonight should only go down to around 53F.  A really good sleeping night. 

Now that I've chewed most of your ear off, how about another freebie?  Because it's Halloween week, and I've been having such fun making Halloween QP's, I will have one for each day all week.  This one features another of my favorite Poser characters, Zlata.  The kit is by Creations By Rain, who sells at  Zlata is such a sad looking little darling that you just have to love her.

Here is your download link:

I'm working on my second green neck warmer now, but I have photos of the Delft Blue one and the Melonberry one.   Hmmm, I think I'll make one of these for myself too. 

Pogo is beginning to hop all over me to get my attention.  I do believe he is trying to let me know that he is hungry and wants his breakfast.  That means that it's time for me to head for the kitchen.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Wow, you did a good job there yesterday! Making yur calendar and the Christmascards. and all of that wonderful discount of 50%, which is naturally fantastic.
It was a kind of kick in the b utt, don;t you think? Well, it took some time but now you can relax in the wonderful thought that these things are done with. Yippee!
ur clock already has been put back for one hour last weekend. And I always regret it, suddenly in the late afternoon early evening it is almost dark now and in mornings to. Yak, it is the time of year for it, but I better like a longer day with daylight.
Jan and I did work for half an hour or so in the garden, it was nice.
But we need to do more, perhaps this weekend.
Have a lovely day.

I checked my phone; my flashlight is by iHandy. I downloaded it a long time ago, but it was a good idea to check to be sure. (Thanks for the tip, Edna!)

The neck warmers are so neat and that variegated one, melon berry, is just beautiful!
