  1. How is everyone? Just figured out I can use this wee bitty cell phone to chat and read the site. Oh my goodness! Waiting' to start internet for laptop in several weeks probably. :))
  2. Hmm first time using this format for website. okay.... using tablet. new laptop would not bring up out of sleep mode, would not turn back on.....etc etc...... are my last 60 pages of book toast, its an awesome book! aaargh. unbelievable.....contacting HP tomorrow. ugh. I woke up to badly behaving laptop this morning. DGD Fiore had toungue surgery for tongue tied problem, parents are having to treat at home for her recovery......scream city when they massage under the toungue, she is only less that two months old but growing up just fine ...please say a prayer for Fiore andher parents. DS ran a half marathon today. He did well.
  3. Well it looks like I will be doing some raised beds with straw bales this year.
  4. Starting to get in my heirloom seeds and picked up some cilantro seeds. I love cilantro! It has been so windy I am holding off getting some torn up dirt for starting my seeds but I have quite a few containers. Need to get more dollar pudding packs from the dollar store that opened up , those containers work great and are easy to stack and store when I don't need them any more. Doing a little knitting today too, need to do up the second sock on this clover colors yarn . I love these colors! It would make a delightful sweater. LIghtweight, but warm and colorful.
  5. A Dollar general store opened up in town. It has some canned goods. Lot of other stuff too, storage containers and this town has no other stores selling them. Up a nearby street. I like that.
  6. chianti and liver and fava beans, uh huh. nah.
  7. I never heard that Jeepers but I don't have any of that ancestry in me. Yea, bring on the chianti. lol. Been taking notes on my garden seed orders and sort of grouping them to think of the garden beds I can do with them.
  8. Waiting on seeds in the mail now..... still digging through boxes that are like going down the rabbit hole in Alice and Wonderland books and haven't located any of my heirloom seeds. grrrrr, so I ordered some..... sigh. Should have plenty ..... Also ordered some type of teperary bean grown by southwestern natives so should be good for chili beans or maybe refrieds? They have a little blue on them not just tans and darker browns. I also ordered a red Italian grown fava bean, because I heard red fava's were healthier ? Can anyone tell me about fava bean nutrition? I ordered a nice bluish green looking melon with orange flesh inside and winter squashes and spaghetti squashes all in heirloom seeds. I also ordered a stringless bush type green bean, and thought they would be nice eating. ( that order was part of amazon order though.) I also ordered 25 everbearing strawberry plants. Charentais Melon
  9. Ordered 25 everbearing strawberry plants. Ordered gmo free heirloom squash and cucumber seeds.
  10. ordered heirloom seeds again.... still hunting in boxes for my other ones!
  11. ordered a replacement of canner weighted guage , becuase in my move, it was not packed up entirely and I couldn't do any canning til I got a new one!
  12. WE also have high fire dangers most days, lately.
  13. It will warm up to 74F daytime temps and above freezing at night here in my spot in NE. By Saturday- Sunday. It is sometimes warmer than forecast by up to 5 degrees too, so far this year for my spot.
  14. Oh, ordered a silicone based keyboard cover. Price was good, lol.
  15. subscribed to microsoft office 365 personal edition of Office programs. 6.99 per month. Not a bad deal.
  16. Granddaughter born at 9am Hawaii time. She was good and healthy and sassy. Her momma is doing well. Thanks for the well wishing! I have my new laptop set up well enough til pay day when I can get the Office Key paid for.... Going to be exploring the Microsoft and Google drives for 'cloud' storage.
  17. The windows 10 book claims windows 10 will not play dvds, so either you buy an external drive for that or use a software and the book reccomends one, due to so much live streaming now going on on the internet. I will check into this matter soon, but can set up all else easily enough. I think I may like how it organizes things better, and access points windows 10 uses. I shall see.
  18. Laptop arrived, started updates on it, have to at first for windows and drivers. 73% done though, on updates so far.
  19. Received book on Windows 10. Waiting for fedex to bring laptop to begin setting it up once charged. Son was delighted with idea to Skype with DGS and his family, so will hopefully set up video chats. My DGS doesn't know me yet!Long distance chats and fun! ( They won't let him get near their cell phones yet, of course at age 20 months and I don't blame him.)
  20. Finally finished one sock of pair , slouch sock style, vanilla latte inspired, but became my own socks pattern, added in seed stitch over instep , partly, just for the heck of it, visually looks more like a slipper then? Started second sock to this pair.... found , um, other started pairs...... needs to rip out yarn and start over on those... cant recall details. lol. hmph. At least I am finding all my sock needles and those good for worsted weight mittens! Talked to son yesterday.... we are short days count down to grandbaby number 2. A little girl. Due Friday the 3rd. DS is waiting on masters program entry acceptance at Texas A &M, History, notification soon, progress so far on the matter is good. BTW they love volunteer work on resumes for that application process. He has plenty. DIL is 'ready , past ready, to have this baby!' but doing well. You know how that goes the last month Hoping I have new laptop all set up by Friday to get pics on it if the wee one, a little girl, is born. Asking a prayer for all their safety this week and when birthtime arrives. They do go to an excellent hospital for the birthing and post natal care is excellent and highly rated there just in case there is need for it. Its been sweet hearing the happiness and fascination in my son's voice over the developments of the babies, pre and post birth. I can finally set up Skype to chat with them all including grandson. I think they are delaying letting him talk on cell phones so he doesnt grab to play with theirs and end up dropping it in a drink glass or something just yet. DGS is learning to blow bubbles in swim lessons for toddlers and babies. He is doing great. Evidently he is a bit of a dare devil already.
