I missed yesterday completely due to computer issues. Saturday evening I logged off and my computer had some window updates to do before it shut down. Unfortunately, it got hung up somehow while installing update 2 0f 2! I spent the evening attempting to cold shut it down, but everytime I would do that, it would restart itself and all I would get was the same screen telling me that it was installing 2 0f 2 updates. Spent yesterday attempting everything that I knew of to get it unhung. Finally, I decided to just remove the battery from my laptop and see if that did anything. First attempt didn't work, so then I removed it for a longer period of time. Figured if I removed the power source it might correct. A bit scary to do as it tells you not to shut down or unplug while the update is happening! After leaving the battery out for awhile and then putting things back together....Woo Hoo...it worked! I don't appear to have lost any information and when I shut it down again, it went to another update mode and this time if completed itself...appears I am not back up and running.
My computer is fixed...at least as far as I know!
I'm done to 5 containers of green/reddish tomatoes for processing. I made a very yummy homemade tomato soup yesterday for lunch with one small batch of ripe tomatoes.
I only have one bed of garden to finish cleaning out and then all the yard work is complete and we are ready for winter. We had a lovely day yesterday for working outside.
Found some hardware for the new cabinets that both Garry and I really like...and that look good on the cabinets. Now we just need to install them. Counter top and backsplash are almost dry enough to install. Garry wanted to put another coat of sealant on them first.
I got two of my shelving units built and installed in my cold storage room and am thrilled with them. They are on wheels so I can easily arrange them in a different lay out as my cold storage room fills. I would like to get two more units in the future.
Blessed with so much.
Have a wonderful day, be your own best friend...take care of yourself!
