Recently, I was the object of a book-gifting project online, thanks to Erica B
and "The Bloggess,
" who is one of the authors. I received eight great books to read from Amazon. Folks are doing a good job of trying to cheer me up with these.
I'd like to publicly thank all of the gifters for their kindness.
They came with a bar code thing to scan with a smartphone to send thanks notes - but I can't figure it out on my semi-smartphone yet.
(Probably need an app or two). Most things paid for so far have refused to install for unknown reasons- Formats must not be compatible.
I've been feeling like such a whiner lately. It's tough when all you can think about is negative things going on around you. There has been plenty.
Well the bright side is we only played icicle a few days here before the weather swung back to above freezing again. It seemed down-right balmy with sunshine when I walked Wednesday. I had to un-button my coat, n I didn't wear a hat. I had to go get a new one, because the last two mysteriously disappeared. I can picture them snickering n running away while I wasn't paying attention... Luckily hats are cheap this time of year. The plow-piles of snow are almost all melted away from sidewalks now.
I'm still not recovered from the heart products day of early work last Saturday. Still unable to make-up by getting extra sleep this week. The house female kitties, who need fixing, are meowing loudly often, interrupting what ever sleep the people here aren't. Amazingly I'm plodding on in my zombie state n doing needed things.
After being dropped my camera was finally snapped back into one piece, (minus a timer indicator light) n still functions! Yay! My little dvd player fell (darn cat again). I crossed my fingers n put the disc back in, n it still plays - Yay!
It's been a "Twilight" movie series week for me. I'd forgotten so many of those soundtrack songs, my fave part are the ones in the credits n in bonus music videos. I still think soundtracks are one of the most important parts of a successful film. So many I don't see twice because the music did not impress me. But my faves always have sound I wish to hear again.
I'm doing pretty good at tax form avoidance. Definitely need my tired brain together for that. I still play too...
