Yesterday the parking lot was semi-slushy.
I set up my backup Gateway laptop on my reader's table--since I can't use the desk computer (virus?). The reader's table works just fine in bed, but not so well in a lounger because I can't get it close enough and have to lean forward anyways. But it gives me a taste of what is to come--hehe!
The always curious Karma had to check it out, of course.
She wasn't happy with it being in her way when she decides it is time for a cuddle over my shoulder. But she'll have to get used to the new arrangement, right? :)I'll have a similar table for the MacBook--eventually. In fact--searched for reviews on the first table I liked online and finally found some--not good. Searched for reviews on my second choice table and they were all good. Don't you just love the Internet!? :)
Meanwhile--woke up this afternoon to a raging blizzard!! Wind gusts up to 45-50 mph.
May not look like much from my parking lot but schools, businesses, roads, and stores are closed or closing. We have all that ice under the snow, too. So--needless to say--Dagan and Leah aren't gong to go over to pick up the laptop tonight. I hope they let them out of work early so they can just make their way slowly home--safe and sound. We'll wait and see what the weather holds. So it may be another day or two. I'm not even sure Caroline will be able to make it or navigate the parking lot tomorrow. **** The snow is fine and the wind is hitting my side of the building--so we have snow covering everything on the porch this time. Karma was begging to go out... ...until I opened the door--hehe!
Curiosity got the better of her, tho, and she just had to got out...shaking her feet as she went.
She ate a little snow...
...quickly wanted in--still licking her chops.
So thrilled that there were footprints to eat that she couldn't wait for me to shut the door!
I had to push her out of the way to close the door--hehe!
Oh, the little joys in life, eh? The blizzard made Karma's day...if no one else's.
It is now 4pm and I haven't even started fixing all the spelling mistakes! Usually only takes me about an hour. This is why I need a decent laptop. I have been able to work nonstop from my chair but it has taken me this long to upload pictures and write the blog! Lots of troubles with connection to the Internet and the laptop is slow--and now I have a ton of mishmashed words to fix. But--since I'm sitting here in a blizzard, I thought I'd take the time to write today after all. Tomorrow--who knows? hehe!
Anyways, that's about it from snowbound in Fargo. :):)
