Laptop Working — Almost

Alleluia!  Today I received a new laptop.  The old one is not working so my friend sent me a Dell that he already had.  I’m in the process of setting it up and trying to find my old apps.  The one I’m really trying to find the most is Picasa 3, my photo editing app.  I don’t know why Google decided to 86 that one but that was the second one they took away since I first began using a computer.  Why do these people continue to fix things that were never broken?  And for that matter, why don’t they try fixing some of the broken things?  

Now to see if my photos made the switch with me today.  I’ll know soon because I’m going to try to find them.

How about that!  Here they are, including a couple of new ones!  I think I’m back in business.  Just have to find a few more things, especially Picasa, probably not going to happen, but at least I can give it a try.

I got my room almost the way I want it by moving the furniture last Saturday.  And I paid for that Saturday night when places I didn’t know I had were hurting.  I have a feeling that means I shouldn’t try moving furniture in the future.  That’s okay — everything is almost where I want it to be.  Just a stack of sewing things waiting for their new home, if I can find them a new home!  Someday it is sure to turn up and when it does I’ll be ready for it. 

It has been downright cold here during morning and evening hours with the breeze blowing in off the river but that is still one of my favorite places to be.  I still can’t believe it is just out the back door and across the grass from where I am sitting right now.  I’ve driven down to the river most of my life and tried to find a parking place so I could sit and watch the boats floating past but now I can watch them all day and into the night without leaving home.  Just have to be sure I’m inside by the time the doors are locked at 9:00 p,m.  I don’t think I would enjoy the river much if I ever got locked out and had to spend the night in the gazebo.  Not a very good thought there.

Lots  more to do today, including setting this laptop up with everything I want.  Of course, that means Picasa!  I’ll leave with a last photo of my favorite place!
