Computer woes

I wish I could blame my mood on Blogger but I seriously think it has nothing to do with them and everything to do with my computer. I can't click on anything without getting messages that tell me that a program is not responding and then the whole damn thing just freezes right there....grrrrrrrrrrr. These are not sites that I'm going to for the first time. They are sites I've clicked on for years. I want a new computer. This one is such a royal pain in the butt that working with it is no longer any fun. It's been this way for days. I re-booted, disconnected and plugged back in, all the things that usually make it run better but NO. We just got a new modem a few weeks ago so I doubt that has anything to do with it.

Anyway, it's a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that I can't fall into the vast and dark ether and instead, get a few things done. All this is by way of saying I probably won't be blogging much, if at all, for a while and I am having trouble even leaving comments. Know that I am thinking about you, my friends and, when possible, stopping by to visit and see what's up. Hoepfully there will be an answer sooner rather than later but right now my go-to guys are down with terrible colds and feeling very awful. When they get better, I'll think about asking for help.

Hope you're having a more productive day than me. Poor Roger was coughing so hard he was choking last night so we got about 3 hours sleep. He has an immportant meeting to prepare for so the poor guy had to suck it up and go into work for a couple of hours.

Well, I'll talk to you soon, I hope.

This 'n That

Not much left in the harbor. It's that time when everything starts to look pretty but bare and spare. I kind of like bare and spare. That's when you see the real beauty of things I wish I could translate it to my personal life. I'm living in chaos.

I got a new dryer Saturday and when I called to have the town pick-up the old one they informed me that pick-ups have been suspended until November when they will hopefully be finished with the new sidewalks that are being installed on my street. It sure is a mess out there. I feel sorry for the neighbors across the street since that's where they are working. Those neighbors have a very steep driveway and a long stairway up to their house. Right now they have not had access to their driveway for at least two months, since that's when their driveway was torn apart in the construction. How on earth they get groceries up there I can't even imagine. I can imagine that they are very unhappy and can further imagine that the Village powers that be will have to do some major repair work on the foot+ hole that remains between the sidewalk and driveway....not nice. Anyway, the old dryer will have to live in the weeds behind the house until Nov. 23. Fortunately there is a sort of mini-forest behind my house and the neighbors don't have to look at a dead appliance for a month.

That's about all from me for today. Roger has a terrible cold and cough. He's hanging out at home today and I have to go to the Food Pantry to work for a couple of hours. Maybe I can round up some paint for the studio today or tomorrow. I need ceiling paint and wall paint. "It's very slow going-it's always something"..Roseanne Rosannadana.

Talk to you soon.
