Hello people The old computer is fired up and running right now so I thought I would bitch a little. More. But I also want to thank you for your help in my color decision. Valid points!
The color matches 783 and yes I use that thread! Yes I have doubts about the longevity of its appeal. Yes I want to find it in the parking lot. Yes I am tired of the drab colors filling the roadways. Yes the hesitation means I have doubts. Yes I do love that spark. So today, this day, for these hours, I'm getting a white Subaru. My salesman asked if there is a menopause manual for men.
How many times can I screw up a vase? Anyone? The only thing correct is the spaces between it and the tree. The handles were low. The vase height was wrong. The handles didn't match. Now the vase is too high. I've decided to remove the top row of blue and leave it as one line instead of two. The rust color needs to go across the top and once again, the handle is off. They should be one row above the vase rim and right now they are even. Well one is. The other is on hiatus again. It's not coming back until the vase is filled and I know exactly where it goes. I doubt the linen can take any more stitch removal.
Today was Antiques in the Woods at the Shaker Woods grounds. It was so freaking cold I had two jackets on and was still freezing.
Not sure if the weather or the Porta Potty from hell was worse. I have claustrophobia. When I shut door, the tiny mirror at head height startled me. Wasn't expecting to see a face. If I was 20# heavier I doubt I would have fit and my knees on these long legs were an inch from the door. The slide bolt to keep the door shut and let others know it's occupied was really tight. What if I can't get it back open? I will panic in an instant. Plastic everything and I had to wonder if it would hold my weight while I pulled myself up, or would I pull that door off its plastic hinges. But wait, where do I grab? Good grief how will I get off this thing? Could I push down on the paper holder without breaking it off? Which would be worse? Breaking a plastic crapper or screaming for someone to lift an old lady off the pot? Thankfully it didn't break. The show was not as good as prior years and I found a small wall box for $21 that I just paid $35 for at James Creek. Same maker. I purchased an old piece of wood to make into a sign and a short garland of some sort of hard hickeythings. Stopped at Jimmy's (Italian store) on the way home.
Came home to the turkey clan, growing, but still very small for this season. Blustery winds, more like late October, and the furnace is on in my house. This was the first year for it to run in late June and now early September.
If I have the gumption, I will go to Staples tomorrow and see what can be done to save the computer files. I have the first two disks of backup but since it wouldn't complete the task, there may not be anything usable. I would consider a Mac if I was willing to spend that much but just can't right now.
This laptop is starting to get hot so I better stop. Enjoy your weekend and stay safe.
Thanks for visiting.
