11 degrees below zero this morning. Even the cars in the parking lot have that crispy look.
We've had from 18-22 below for lows yesterday and today. They predict we will be lucky to get above zero for a few days. The balmy 20s and 30s left us this weekend.
Karma is not concerned. She just quits asking to go out on the porch--LOL! She's been enjoying the heating pad. It does get quite hot for a while after you first plug it in and then it cools off to the low setting. Not exactly consistent heat, but it wasn't expensive. Most of the time Karma sits up and hangs her legs out of the bed while it's too hot...and waits.
I caught her licking her lips...
...waiting until it is...
Okay. The Kindle is working.
Confession (you are allowed to laugh loudly--guffaw--and tearful laughter is even quite acceptable)...I had the right password, but I was using the wrong email address!! DUH!!
I have an old yahoo address that I don't use much anymore (been using gmail for several years now), but--it was many years ago I opened my Amazon account. Really! I know this. Talk about a senior moment. A brain fart. Fibro fog. ROFL! I have been chuckling about this for days. I just knew it was some simple thing I was overlooking...for days--LOL! And it was. Part of my problems with figuring out techie stuff is that sometimes I think the issue at hand is way more complicated than it actually is. ;)
Silly, silly me.
The Kindle is working perfectly and all my Amazon Cloud books were there instantly. Awesome! I already have picked out a holder for it on Amazon that flips back like a steno notebook so that you can prop it up for reading and it would protect it in my bag. Even found another one that reminds me of a simple folding plate holder that will probably become a permanent fixture over by the craft table. Both those should work for me with my bum arm and I plan to order them in February--whoohoo! :)
Happy, happy me.
Thanks to you guys I have links for free and cheap ebooks.
Free is awesome--LOL!
I spent the weekend catching up just on comments and emails. I do get some blog posts via email, of course, but most of mine show up on the blogger reader. Sadly, I am over a week behind on reading posts and I honestly don't see me catching up with reading every one of them (over 400 now!). So--I apologize, but I am going to have to slap back my OCD side that wants to read them all--in order of posting--and just kind of go from here...and hope I haven't missed anything of major importance. If there's something you really want me to read from the last 7-8 days or so, please email me, okay?
There are times where my health just sets me back or life just plain gets too busy--and I get so much farther behind than I normally am so quickly. How do you guys keep up? I seems like I just really can't anymore. Even when I am feeling okay I am always so far behind. Something has got to give...and I think it's going to have to be that OCD side of me. Not easy for me to let go of...especially when I so enjoy hearing what everybody is up to, you know? Love my blog family and appreciate every single comment I receive. :):)
But really--what do you do? I would love to have more time to play with art and, now this year, to make videos. So I have to make some changes, I guess. How do you manage your online time? Do you not respond to comments? Do you limit your computer time? Do you not read blogs that often? Do you just read the blogs of the people who leave comments? I am so curious.
Anyways, I am off to change loads of clothes. Karma's crying for the crinkly-candy-wrapper-on-the-string toy. I have letters to respond to (snail mail!). And the day is already flying by with ease. The sun is shining on this frigid day and I am grateful to be inside with warm fresh clothes to hang and fold.
It's going to be a good week!!
Keep smiling!! :)
