Touch Pad Woes

November 8, 2019

My goodness, I'm super late today.  I've just spent a couple hours trying to disable the touch pad on my laptop.  I use a mouse.  Up to now, I've been able to just go into the settings and disable it.  This morning my Windows updated again, and guess what?   I can't go in and disable the touch pad anymore. 

I checked on Google how to do this, but nothing they offer can be used on my laptop.  I've tried everything.  Finally, I taped a paper napkin over the touch pad, and I hope this helps me.  That touch  pad can cause lots of problems when you are typing if you accidentally touch it.  (when you are using a mouse)

Well, I spent quite a bit of time yesterday morning on the phone with my friend MaryAnn.  She was teaching me how to get around in the Photoshop Cloud program.  Wowsie!  There is so much to learn about this newer version of Photoshop.  And learn I did!  Oh, believe me, there's much more to learn, but she showed me enough that I should be able to get around pretty good in this program.  If I have any questions, I'll just write them down, and then I'll call MaryAnn again. 

This weekend, I'll try to make a new quick page.  Hopefully, my brain retained enough of what I learned and I'll be successful.  I really need to get back to using the creative side of my brain. 

Today is sunny, but rather cool.  The temperature is 33F degrees, and that's about the high for today.  Tomorrow should get up to forty degrees, then maybe a couple days that make it to the fifties.  After that, it's back to freezing temps.  Well, that's what my phone app says.

I slept late this morning, so I don't know if any snowflakes fell in my area.  If they did, they did not leave any traces in my yard.  No, I'm not complaining, just noticing.  I remember one Thanksgiving, when I was very young, trudging through the snow to get to my aunt's house.  We took a bus most of the way, then  walked the rest of the way.  I don't remember the dinner, just the snow.

Here's an image that I borrowed from the web to share here.  I love the smell of oranges.  The cinnamon makes it smell like Fall.  As to Epstein, I have no idea what he has to do with this.

I also borrowed this next picture from the web.  I just couldn't resist it.  It's amazing how much easier it is to park a broom than to park a car.  I have two brooms parked on my porch and they hardly take up any room at all.

Deanne just sent me a text saying that they are going to take me out to a late lunch/early supper tomorrow.  Is this called a "lunper" or is it "suppunch?"  Hmmm, I'll have to look this one up on Google.  Either way, it will be a nice treat.

Before I take my leave, let me share one more image that I borrowed from the web.  I'm sure this pertains to most of us. 

Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading.  So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Certain things people put on the web doesn't make sense. You're right, what Epstein has to do with orange peels and cinnamon. (lol) I left face book because of the weird post my relatives was putting on there. A lot of things said didn't make sense and I heard it is still going on. (lol) I distance myself from stressful situations.

Our winter is back today with rain. It's okay with me because I will be inside all day. I need to pick up some fruit from the grocery store, but it can wait for better weather. I hope you and Pogo have a healthy beautiful day and weekend.

Must have been a nice surprise that late lunch.early supper!
Gosh, you have trouble with the laptop and the touchpad. I will have to be aware of that when I buy my new laptop. I want ot use a mouse too, I don;t like touchpad.
Sorry to hear you had a "low day"concerning your breathing. Well, only thing you can do is take it easy and sit and relax as much as you can. You did the right thing to take a book and lucky it was a good one too LOL.
Have to go to my blog now, I am already a bit late.
You have a great week.
