PC bummer......

My PC went belly-up last Sunday. Blue screen, "unmountable boot volume". Dead.
I have felt like I had a broken ring finger. You know, like I can get things done, but something is just not quite right. Guess I will have to spend some cash for a new one. This always stresses me, since i am the member of my household with the most computer mojo (and that ain't a lot) I am the one that makes the decision. I guess I will call my brother, he is a real computer dude. He will advise. I don't want a "gamer package", I wat to be able to play with my photos software, some simple graphics software, surf, write, maybe look at some videos. Just too many choices!

Right now, I am coping by using my work laptop, but I do not like to do that often.

I was looking at this year's Washington Post Peeps Show and saw the link to this video.

Enjoy the humor and Happy East, Spring and Vernal Equinox!!!

Spring Fever

With last week's shift to Daylight Savings Time, I have been infected with a case of Spring Fever. I find myself gazing out of my window, musing on the notes of the twittering birds, sniffing the Daffodils that are lining my driveway. I have been leaving the office earlier than normal (right on time!), to get home for a nice walk or bike ride. I feel like I am coming out of a slumber and awakening into how I truly am. I have noticed a lessening of the sluggishness I feel in the winter. I have more energy and less anxiety. I am just not meant for this latitude.

I have been dealing with the normal, day-to-day stress of life. Work is crazy-busy, home is good (I just wish I spent more time here!). The man-cub is, well, he is 18.

I have been sewing more. I am making a quilt for my nephew and his fiance. I am ready to actually quilt it. They are tying the knot in October so, I have plenty of time to get it finished. When I get to this point, though, it goes very fast. I could quilt it today and bind it tomorrow if I got really focused!
I need to release my fear of ruining my fabrics. They really are beautiful, but their beauty intensifies when they are sewn into something. I have been making table runners as gifts, this makes me cut up the fabrics AND make them into beautiful objects. Strange how I have to play mind games with myself!!

I guess my real focus should be "Release of Fear".

Hmm. Remember your Kharma!

What Spice I am

You Are Cayenne Pepper

You are very over the top and a bit overwhelming.

You have a fiery personality, and you can give anyone a good jolt.

You can easily take things up a couple notches, no matter what crowd you're running with.
