I've actually been consciously avoiding the internet all week. After news reported a new virus attacking IE browsers versions 9 to 11, I decided just not to get my home machine online n risk it.
Altho I use Chrome for blogging, my ISP software always launches IE automatically, even after changing default settings.
After getting some advice on avoiding the problem, here I am crossing my fingers.
Email n other accounts want me to keep changing passwords, so my system for remembering is all messed up too-
Classmates sent me a new message alert, n I can't even get into the account to read it. So much time is wasted just trying to get stuff figured out, n my time is too limited. Most of my online effort is spent paying bills n deleting scores of spam email.
At least the green has begun to spring forth here finally, even tho weather is in the 40F's n stormy rain these Days Off. I tried to put away the gloves n scarves, but they took an encore today. Daffodils, Forcynthias, Azealeas, n Cherry blossoms are out. Tree leaf buds are still waiting to unfurl. Willow trees are pollinating, n I'm allergic to those. The lawns are sprouting short, soft, new, green carpets.
Luckily no mowing is needed yet, n the rains aren't flooding here. Today I had time to get some inexpensive plants for the deck garden. Pansies, Lavender, Thyme, n a tomato bush, I have seeds for impatiens, n a wild-flower mix, n a butterfly mix to try for surprises. Also I expect all the Violas from last year to sneak back in again. My work is cut out for me with so many pots out there to do. so far only a few weeds n the chives are growing.
Meanwhile I'm taking another lazy week after getting the work laundry done, because it's that curl up with a book weather. Plus I'm still recovering from that last bug
