This and That
Got my hair cut and a pedicure getting ready for vacation. I also went to the AT&T store and found the answers to some little questions I had about the new phone. I looked in the fridge and assessed the inventory. I want to get as much stuff ... Read more
Wi-Fi on vacation
I checked the Hotels we are scheduled to stay and all but one says they have free Wi-Fi, so I will take my mini computer and see if I can log in and at least spin the wheel and do some basic stuff. Only got 3 chapters of my Anne of Ggeen Gables... Read more
I went "closet shopping" the other day to find some clothes to take on vacation. I found several pairs of shorts now fit me and that are now washed and ironed (yes, Virginia, Mary Ellen DOES own an iron, she just doesn't use it very often!) an... Read more
So I'm NOT a techno-idiot!
Took the SmartPhone back to AT&T and found out that my problems were not "operator error" but a defective phone. So they changed it out and when I got home I attempted to send my first ever text message I discovered that the "Techno-brain" who ... Read more
Still waiting for SmartPhone instructions
Saints be praised, we finally got a break in our weather! Not only did it not get to 90 degrees, it was a pretty pleasant about 84 and we actually got over 2 inches of much-needed rain. I took out the trash can tonight and ended up pulling a w... Read more
I've been thinking about doing this for at least a year now, and today I went and got a new Smart Phone. First thing I did was download the SP Apps. I'm a bit disappointed in how it is working for me. I think I need to go back to the store an... Read more
The Bishop is coming, but not till NEXT WEEK!
I can't believe what happened! I got an email regarding the Bishop's visit. Since I was planning a trip I kind of put it on a back burner. When I got home, I received another email from another person saying that requests for certain items had... Read more
The Bishop is coming, the Bishop is coming!!
We got a new Pastor a few weeks ago, and tomorrow morning at the third service the Bishop is coming to "install" him. Of course, the entire parish is out to show the best of hospitality. A request went out to many of us to supply a dish for a ... Read more
Too darn hot!
Boy, oh, boy. The heat here is really bad. I know probably half of all SP followers can lament along with me. Here in Raleigh, when you factor in the humidity, the temp was feeling like 110! I made a quick run to the library this afternoon a... Read more
Not yeast, I'm just OLD!!
Well, thinking I was back to the yeast overgrowth in my mouth again, I went to see my Dr. I took the scraping from my tongue that is just disgusting, but I am so glad I did, as she scoped it, and found there is no yeast there. Turns out it is ... Read more
Yeast overgrowth again. Boo Hoo!
Well, the yeast in my mouth is back again. I know exactly what caused it to bloom this time. I needed to bake something for a funeral luncheon at Church and the first batch I made (using substitutions that I blogged about last week) turned out... Read more
Surprise...I'm not hungry!
It occurred to me the other day that I never reach the point where I am really hungry. That amazes me, as I really never thought I over ate before, yet there was no arguing with the scales. I NEVER snacked, well, except for an occasional desse... Read more
Losing a streak, as opposed to a losing streak!
Well, I did take my mini computer with me to St. Croix. The resort had Wi-Fi so it was very convenient to log on, but I did lose my streak. And next month, I am almost sure I will lose it again, as I will be gone for 2 weeks and the chances o... Read more
Home from St. Croix
Well, I am home safe and sound from STX and I had a great time. I only gained half a pound. Our resort had a wonderful breakfast buffet. I Have no earthly idea what was under the covered chafing dishes! Talk about avoiding land mines! I ord... Read more
Getting ready for St. Croix!
Today I have a mandatory meeting at work for one hour and then I'm done for the week. A group of us are heading off to St. Croix tomorrow. There is an orphanage down there and we are bringing donated goods for the home and kids. We found a su... Read more
