I worked Monday and Tuesday and yesterday was just a do nothing day. It felt like I was just spinning my wheels all day. Jim was out of town and I was alone and having some computer issues. I am thinking it is time to think about getting a new computer - any suggestions? I am still using the lap top - Jim is thinking of completely reformatting the Dell downstairs. He doesn't like the Mozilla Firefox that I installed - but I like it and so I am not really using that computer - but then I have no printer with the laptop - and do I want to keep using the laptop or go back to the other computer. Most of my pictures and my Dear Jane and EQ6 programs are on the Dell. I am usually pretty happy with the lap top - but yesterday it was acting up a bit. So I think that is part of what got me out of sorts. All in All Wednesday was pretty much a write off.
But today was a better day as I got a very pretty pin cushion in the mail from Darlene!! I love the fabric. Thank you so much Darlene. It is always nice to get a little something in the mail. And the colours in this little pincushion just perked me right up today.
I love paisley and the photo is the paisley side of the pin cushion, it is a very pretty pink on the other side. Much better day today for me.
Not such a good day for Jim though. Jim got back from Washington this afternoon and he had left his car for the week in a secure parking garage where he works -- you need a special garage door opener to get into the area. His car was broken into last night - nothing in the car to steal -- except the little thing that opens the garage door. Apparently the thief broke something that was "unbreakable" in order to get into the area. There were only two cars in there and Jim ended up with a damaged door and a broken window -- $1000.00 damage. So he wasn't having a good day today. Now the garage door has to be reprogrammed and everyone needs a new little thingy. I would like to point out that I had mentioned that I didn't think it was the greatest idea to leave the car there for a week - but it was supposedly "secure"..........
Jenny got to spend Monday and Tuesday with the dog sitter - who has a golden retriever named Lily, so she had a good time this week while I was at work and Jim was away. Jenny really, really likes Lily. I think Jenny actually prefers dogs over people. When we go on the cruise to Alaska she gets to spend the week with Lily.
Jenny also prefers to be comfortable - you know - there are many places in the house that are much more comfortable than a mat on the floor.
This is where I found her yesterday - enjoying a little afternoon nap on the sofa. I guess it is good that she enjoys the sofa - as we rarely go in the living room and I think since we got it in 2002 we have sat on it every year at Christmas time --- maybe. So it is good someone enjoys it... I guess!!
