Good morning. Say hello to this beautiful new month! Happy Belated May Day! Here's the May page from my calendar.
Well, I have to say that Friday's medical appointments were the best I've had in quite a while. First we went to the lab to have the blood work done. The girl drawing the blood was super quick with the needle. She was in and out with no pain at all. Then we went to meet with my doctor's nurse practitioner, Judy.
She turned out to be really nice. She listened, and talked with you - not at you. Actually, everyone in this office seems to be really nice. And all my test numbers came out good. My blood pressure is a little high so Judy prescribed a new medicine for it. Later this month, I'll meet my new primary care doctor. If she's nice too, then I will have hit the jackpot!
Friday I also started another pocket wrap. This one is Raspberry and might be for my cousin Anita. I took a photo to show you so that I can explain a tip that I forgot to mention when I posted the pattern. There are a lot of rows to this wrap, so I place a safety pin every twenty rows to help me keep count. As you can see in the photo, I have a pin in the first and last stitch of the current row, and another pin keeping track of how many rows I've already done.
There's not much of interest on the TV this morning, so I've been watching Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. It's a really cute children's program. In a little while, I'll switch over to BUZZR channel. (old game shows) I did not turn on the laptop all day yesterday. So, today I have some catching up to do with my blog reading.
This morning when I turned on my laptop, it was in a snooty mood, and was not playing nice with me. I tried to size a photo in Photoshop and for some reason, the program got stuck and would not work. Nor would it shut off. I finally had to use the power button to shut off my laptop. All of this took more than an hour.
When I finally turned the laptop back on, a Windows update was just finishing being installed. Folks, I'll bet anything that this is the real problem here. These Windows updates are driving me crazy. I'm tempted to buy another laptop, but I don't think there's anything wrong with my laptop. It's Windows that is causing all the problems.
So, that's my news for today. Hopefully, (laptop willing) I'll be back tomorrow. Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
