Good: Friday J installed a utility sink in the entryway. No more small leaky sink! Now we can mix calf bottles, wash eggs and clean messy stuff in a BIG sink. Oh, and it’s the perfect size to give Little Dog a bath. Yes, we tested it out last weekend.
Bad: It is cold, very cold. The temperature at our house early this morning was -5*.
Ugly: Last Friday night I went to get on the computer, only to be greeted by DANGER!! WARNING!! DANGER!! messages across the screen. A virus!
Good: A local computer guru was kind enough to look at our computer. He has seen this particular virus before.
Bad: It has now been 4 days without a working computer.
Ugly: Do you realize how addicted we humans are to the internet? I don’t know how many times J has wanted to check the weather or look something up he read in an Ag publication. At least there were not markets to check yesterday, but he missed watching calf sales streamed from area sale barns.
No social media for me. No blogging, picture editing, Facebook.
Good: I baked and cooked up a storm! Once I get pictures downloaded you will get to see my kitchen creations. Homemade bread, Apple Pie Squares, German Chocolate Cheesecake and meatballs.
Bad: Yesterday I drove 90 miles to a Doctor’s appointment. I left at 7:30 to get there in time. At 8:00 the Clinic started attempting to call me to let me know my Doctor was sick. After arriving at the Clinic I got the message. Yes, I had the cell phone with me. No, I did not have reception until I got to my appointment. So, I got some groceries and went home.
Good: Sister gave me a book to read. She said it was laugh out loud funny. J started reading it after chores yesterday and finished it last night. Have I ever mentioned one of my favorite sounds is J laughing? I can’t wait to read A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel.
I don’t know when our computer will be fixed up and home again. Until then my blogging will be kind of random.
What do you do when your computer is getting worked on? How much do you rely on it for information, work and entertainment?
