Laptop Acting Wonky?

August 1, 2021

Good morning.   My laptop is acting weird this morning.  I don't know if it is updating itself or if it's just acting out.  Let's hope it isn't acting out.  I'm not really in the mood for it.  Over the past few years, I've gained a moderate dislike for laptops and their operating systems.  Gee, I wonder why!

I do have a bit of news today.  There's another great grandbaby coming soon.  This one is due in February.  Congratulations to Mia and Jarod.

I have three baby blankets made.  I'll have to make a couple more.  That's two new great grandbabies coming.  Talk about my cup runneth over!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day here in New England, and Deanne and Eddie took a trip to Martha's Vineyard.  It was the perfect day for sight seeing and visiting friends.  This is one of the photos she took.  Just beautiful!

I was able to sleep a bit later this morning.  4:45 a.m. instead of 3:00 a.m.  Maybe it's the cooler temps at night?  Still, I'll be looking for a little nap this afternoon.  Then I want to put a few more rows on the pocket wraps that I'm working on.  Gosh, when these are finished, I'm going to miss working on them.

Ah, but I have another bag full of junk mail to go through.  I'll spend some time with this later on too.  This is one thing that there is always plenty of.  When we talk about climate control, I wonder what would happen if junk mail were cut in half?  Just think of all the trees that would not have to be cut down to print all this junk mail.  Food for thought?

Now I'm going make a cup of coffee and read some blogs.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Congratulations on the coming great baby. Well, all those coming babies keep you busy!

I do hope it is just a temporary weird acting of your laptop. I'll cross my fingers for you , okay?

Nice you could sleep a bit longer today, but that nap sounds also good to me. May be I'll take a short one after dinner?

It could do a lot of good not sending such a lot of junkmail. A lot of companies send you bills and info only by email(of course you can print it out) but sometimes I think people would like to have a letter send at home for important things.

I am just about to put my ham in the oven and soon the potatoes too, so I say to you: Have a wonderful day, have a relaxing nap.

Congratulations on the imminent great-grandbaby! In the UK you can opt out from having junk mail delivered (in theory). I suppose it would need a lot of people to opt out before they'd actually print any less of the stuff.

Oh, I'd love it if junk mail were made illegal. Unfortunately I guess there's that whole "free speech" thing. Ha!

Congratulations on the happy family news!

I'm so happy about the baby news and I know everyone loves and appreciates the blankets you make. There's nothing like hand made! Love the beautiful view of the ocean. Enjoy your afternoon!

Sorry about your laptop woes. Congrats on the new babies. You have a restful night.

Congrats on the new great-grandbabies coming. Just found out tonight I'm going to be a great-grandmom again too. Must be baby season.

Oh I'm with you on the junk mail. It seems I fill up the recycling bucket every week with paper! I guess it must pay the companies somehow to do this mailing though or they wouldn't do it.

Martha's Vineyard is beautiful!
