Since I'm always giving you the bird's eye view from third floor, I thought I'd show you how deep the snow is from a human's eye view--hehe!
This snowbank by the front door is taller than I am, that's for sure.
I went off to my Federal Housing meeting, as I said. Was very slippery. Saw a fender bender on my way there and two on my way home. One guy slid right into the back of a Moorhead city bus! In general, people were driving slower--but there are always some people who refuse to use any caution.
FedEx did come yesterday. I ordered a laptop holder.
Why, you may ask? Well, I am so used to my rolling wooden reading/bed table that I use to hold my laptop by my chair where the laptop is at an angle that I can hardly use the laptop when it is flat on the table. I feel like I am falling forward. Silly, I know. But I end up grabbing this and that to prop it up when I move it over to the craft table--and then it slides about. Now I have something that I can even take with me when I go over to Dagan and Leah's with my laptop, too. :)
When I first pulled it out of the box I thought--oh no! I have to put it together? Where's Leah when I need her! ROFL!
But apparently the extra pieces are something to do with the cords? I think. Which I don't care about. I don't even bring the power cord when I bring it to Dagan and Leah's because the battery lasts so long on my Mac. ;)
So, I was able to fold it and adjust it to the height I want. And the base has a mesh screen to keep the laptop cool. Awesome!
I have some books coming, too. It's still Christmas in Fargo, eh? LOL!
I dropped my heavy glass butter dish on the counter yesterday--chipped the butter dish in a couple of places and broke a big hole in my cookie jar. :( The cookie jar was one of those clear glass kind that looks like it is sitting at an angle--kind of like the ones they have in restaurants--that I've had for years and years. Maybe it's the universe trying to tell me not to eat cookies? (As if that would stop me--LOL!) Or maybe that I need a more airtight cookie jar? Yup! That had to be what it was trying to tell me. ROFL!!
Well, I now have an even better spot for the new oil decanters. ;)
Another dark, cloudy day. Which means it is supposed to warm up to about 10 degrees today again. R&R day for me after being out and about yesterday. (Yah. I'm only feeling so much better. *chuckle*) I'd better go walk down my envelope for my Fed Housing worker Debbie so it will go out in the mail today. Later gator! :):)
