Changes


Burrrr...it's a cold morning in Conroe. I don't know exactly why, but Conroe is always a few degrees cooler than Houston. This morning it's 50-degrees and I am wishing I had a nice warm pair of booties to wear. It's going to be a beautiful day though, and I'm hoping to get a few cards made. I decided to start the day off by changing the look of my blog. I'm tired of the dots so I've decided to give it a clean, fresh, simple look.

I'm typing today on my brand new Microsoft (curved) keyboard. I learned a lesson over the weekend. The lesson is...if you bring your hot cup of coffee to your computer desk (so you can drink it while surfing the web) then there is a chance the cup will get knocked over and something will be damaged. Don't know how it happened...probably reaching for the mouse...but my entire cup of coffee ended up in my keyboard yesterday. Thankfully, we were shopping at Walmart last night when I told my husband, "I need a new keyboard." When he asked "Why?", I told him simply, "Because the other one isn't working right." Sometimes it's best not to give too much information or a lecture will follow. :} So the conversation ended and I now have a nice new curved keyboard.

I'm Finally Hooked Up!


The phone company truck just left and I finally have the Internet!!! I am so happy. I had to have a phone jack put in my stamping studio so I could get DSL, but hey...the $125 was worth it. Can you believe it...$125 for two guys to put in one little phone jack in about ten minutes. Oh well...I've got the Internet, so who cares.

Waiting on the Internet


It's been a few weeks since Hurricane Ike and although things have been getting back to normal, I still don't have the Internet hooked up in Conroe. Looks like I will finally have it on Monday the 13th...I can't wait. I've been going to the library to use their computers and then today I discovered an Internet Cafe less than half a mile from my home. Go figure! I'm still working on cards and hopefully will be able to post the one's I've made next week. Until then, please excuse the lack of posts on my blog. Once I get the Internet set up in Conroe, I will do more blogging.

The weather here has turned cool and I love it. Really puts me in a stamping mood. The granddaughters and I made Frankenstein cards a few days ago and that was really fun. No stamping, just punching circles for eyes, nose and drawing in the mouth and scars. Until next post...have a wonderful Autumn.
