From A Foreign Computer


making dinner
My compter’s keyboard and battery decided not to work anymore the other day, and so I am borrowing my husband’s computer until new parts can arrive. It is funny how much I took for granted the comfort and ease of having my very own laptop, set up just the way I like it, loaded with all the software I find helpful, and with my folders organized for easy use. I feel like I am in foreign territory, even though we have the exact same model of laptop.

I am hoping that the new keyboard unit will be delivered tomorrow, and that Jeramy can perform the operation in time for my Sunday “52” post. I suppose if not, I will make do using the computer I am on right now.

What’s been going on the past few days?
~Lots and lots (and lots!) of art making with Simon at his new easel.
~Showing him how to make enchiladas and get the perfect fold. He was in charge of sprinkling the cheese.
~A friend borrowed my car the other day and was in an accident. My friend is ok but my car is not. Thank goodness for Triple A, insurance, and a trustworthy mechanic.
~Thinking a lot about my upcoming birthday. I would like to go out dancing!
~Back to bitter cold temperatures, and more snow on the ground. (Which is what caused the aforementioned car accident.)
~I joined a book club recently, in order to force myself to read more fiction, and we are about to begin a new book, Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Anyone read this?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I always hate using someone else’s computer, for just those reasons! Always foreign territory.

    Love the enchiladas, hate the car accident 😦 Oh, let us know how the book is!

  2. Oh no! Your friend must feel awful! Hope your computer will work again too! My computer died this past fall and I did something funny with my last back up so I essentially lost 3 months of stuff! If you end up getting a new computer don’t get Windows 8. I saw a joke on one of those late night shows that said Windows 8 is a great gift for someone you hate!

  3. sorry to hear about the accident, but on the bright side, the foreign computer takes nice pictures. Crisp and clear, I can see you like Cabot cheese just like me. I find that Cabot’s melts very easily in the microwave.
