Re-Learning A Fun Hobby

July 11, 2018

Good morning.    Today is starting out cloudy, with a few scattered puddles here and there.  Temps are in the upper sixties.  Later this morning the temps will rise to the upper seventies with lots of sunshine.  It's a perfect day for grocery shopping.  So that's what I'll do when I finish this post. 

Yesterday, I had a few things that I wanted to do, but somehow I got side-tracked.  Hmmm, sounds familiar.  My new cassette converter arrived, so I thought I would like to try it out.  Scatter brain kicked in, and I decided instead to try to record some music onto a CD with my portable CD player/writer. 

The CD player on my laptop hasn't worked in a couple of years.  A stroke of genius led me to the help button.  I looked up trouble shooting and somehow it got my CD play working.  At least partially.  It only took a couple hours to figure out how to record ten songs onto a disc, and I didn't have to use the portable drive. 

At this point, I decided to try this on my desk top computer.  It's old, but it still works.  Sadly, I don't have a lot of my music on this computer, so I had to make a new list of songs to record to disc.  After another couple hours, I finally had two discs with recorded music. 

You know, when my Michael was alive, we would spend hours together on our computers, recording our favorite music on to discs.  I haven't done it since, and I miss it.  I seem to have forgotten all I knew about recording songs to disc.  Gosh, I need a few more hours each day to do all the fun things that I want to do.

Today I have a couple photos of the Irises in my garden.  A lot of them have passed by now, but they were beautiful.

As I sit here and type, the sun has come out.  Everything looks so pretty outside.   When I get back from grocery shopping I'll take Pogo out for a walk around the yard.  Maybe a few of the puddles will have dried up by then. 

Tomorrow, Pogo has an appointment with his doctor for a check up.  He's been having trouble clearing his throat and I want it checked.  I'm glad the hospital called me to remind me of this appointment because I had forgotten it.  Well, I didn't really forget it, I just thought it was a few more days away. 

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This is a fun page and might be nice for photos of your little ones.  Enjoy it.

Here is your download link:

Well, I think it's time now for me to get dressed and head for the super market.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You are so much braver than I am with new technology. I shudder whenever I have to tackle a project like that. Thank goodness for an abundance of help on You-Tube.
