Cold and dark and drizzly up here. Good snoozing weather, Karma says. ;)
Well, Blogger has been just nuts! Deleting all posts and comments from 7:43am on Thursday until who knows when on late Friday afternoon. I couldn't access my blog at all ("unavailable") but other people could go read it? I lost my Thursday post and any comments I made. I think we'll all have to just go from here. If I missed commenting on your blog it may be that it was just lost in cyberspace with my post--LOL!
And you can blame Blogger for the sideways pictures (I can never fix) below as I re-post. Once I put pictures in my document storage system with Apple's Safari they will revert back to sideways if they had shown up that way for some reason from my camera--even if I had fixed them and clicked save. Maybe I should blame Apple? Or my camera? Or maybe I am too dumb to figure it out? *sigh*
Anyways, Dagan and Leah came over on Wednesday with this box! My new fancy cell phone!! LG Optimus S.
Here's my old flip phone. Compared to the new one, this one is like using an old dial phone!
I bought this leather case for it as soon as I got it (my first cell phone)...
...but this is what it looks like naked--hehe!
Here's the old and new phones side by side--and sideways--LOL!
I didn't notice the flecks of dust on the new screen until I saw this picture of the new matte purple phone.
Leah spent the whole evening getting my phone set up for business. I have a "home page" now like on my computer. Have shortcuts to the internet, weather, email, contacts, texting, voicemail, maps, calendar, clock...and I have four other pages I can put shortcuts on!
Tilt your head and you can see my blog on my phone! (Still seems a bit strange to me.) Leah taught me how to enlarge with a finger and thumb so I can read things easier, too.
Most awesome--a keyboard for typing texts or emails!! And I have this swiping thing on there where I can just slid my finger from letter to letter. I'm getting more used to doing it now after a couple of days. Yup! Most awesome!!!
OH--and I got to choose an old ringing phone for my ringer!! LOL!! Startles me every time, but I don't think I could ever sleep thru it. ;)
I still have booklets to read...
...but I can tell you that I love my new fangled phone already! :):) Thanks Leah for all the work you did to set me up and teach me how to use this "smart" phone. I'm sure I'll have more questions for you in the future, but I'm doing amazingly well so far! Surprising myself! ;)
And thanks for jumping the car , you guys!! :)
Yes, the Paseo is up and running. I took her out for a spin on Friday, too. Plan to do that a couple more times before I make any appointments--to make sure she's holding a charge. I guess I do have to drive her more often. Can't let her sit for months or the battery can totally drain down, I guess. So, I am going to try to take her out and about every 2-4 weeks--even if I just drive around for 10-15 minutes and come right home. I am so thrilled that it wasn't anything bad! Whoohoo!! :):)
The last couple days I have been working on letters owed (five!). I figured I should write those before the Circle Letter arrives for the first time. I guess it is on the way to North Dakota--tada!
I haven't heard back from Goulet Pens about the piston pen, but Rachel's had bad morning sickness and their part-time help is gone for two weeks, so I figured it might take a while. Life happens, right? ;) I have no doubts they'll answer me as soon as they can.
I've been on a low this week. Not state of mind, just the usual fibro stuff. Which means I haven't worked on the birthday cards or made the video on how to apply the caulk frosting yet. I will get back on task as soon as I can. :)
Meanwhile, I am feeling about as energetic as Karma--ROFL! We're supposed to get some sunny, spring weather again soon. I hope so! I want some porch reading time. I've only managed to get one day out there so far this spring. Been wet or too cold. Of course, I need a day of sun to dry out the soggy carpeting first and it's been hard to find two warm days of sun in a row so far. But we're supposed to see the sun for days starting tomorrow. I hope they're right this time! Several sunny days in the 60s--yippeee!
Have a great weekend!! :)
