It’s great when computers work, isn’t it? It makes easy work of some tasks and makes others possible, like this blog. Updates are supposed to make the computer work better, but last week, my computer tried to restart after an update and hung up. “Don’t shut off your computer”, it said, then the little spinning wheel…interminably. I finally plugged the laptop back in and did what it said not to do. I shut it off. Since my frustration tolerance isn’t always great, I didn’t try it again until today and after patiently waiting for many minutes, it decided to finish the update and let me work. The good thing is, that shouldn’t have to happen again for a while!
I’ve been seeing some beautiful snow pictures from friends in Colorado and Kansas. That’s the way I like to see snow, on my computer while enjoying 70+ degree weather. The roads here may not be icy or snow covered, but the year-round Yumans complain plenty about all the winter visitors clogging the roads. Since I’m one of them, I try not to cause road rage from a local!
LeRoy’s been successful in his latest project, a Hi-Jumper dune buggy that he took as a trade last winter. It looks really good and drives well, too, or so he tells me. The only time I’ve been in it was to help him bleed the brakes. Do you know how long it takes a woman-of-a-certain-age to get in and out of one of those things?
Now, of course, it’s for sale or trade for the next project. It keeps LeRoy occupied and altogether, it’s been a pretty cheap hobby, and I won’t complain as long as he keeps making good trades!
I’ve taken up a new hobby, being an Instacart shopper. My friend Kevin Garber told me about it last summer and I filled out all the information then, but there was no availability until this past week. Instacart takes grocery or pharmacy orders from individuals, I choose to accept the order and I become a personal shopper. I have learned already that I definitely like some grocery stores better than others. I’m just not a Sprouts organic shopper by nature!
Other than that, there’s not much going on here at the Yuma landing. We did go to the Medjool date festival a week ago and we’ve kept the Tiki Hut frozen yogurt shop in business. We are just enjoying church activities, visiting with friends, eating Mexican food and being warm. Come join us!
