Going to Sam's

I'm going to Sam's Club today with my daughter to help her stock up on things she needs either food wise or otherwise.  I will probably grab some things for me as well.  The only problem I have with Sam's is that whenever I find something I like the next time I go back it isn't there any more.  Sigh.  Luckily paper towels and toilet paper (the brands I like) are always there.  Some things are better priced there and some things aren't.  Good steaks, though.  One time I scored a box of T-shirt bags.  1,000 in a box!  I use them for cleaning out the kitty box.  I won't have to scrounge plastic grocery bags for almost 3 years!  and they don't have holes in them.
Nights are getting a bit cooler but the days are still quite hot.  Makes me stay inside but at least I'm beginning to get things tidied up.  Probably won't last long.  Early mornings I go to the garden and water the prolific tomatoes and pick the ripe ones.  I don't think as many seeds will be planted next year.  The straw bale garden has certainly produced a lot.  And there are melons growing in the compost pile.  Who knew?
Y'all have a good day and remember:  Socialism is great until you run out of other people's money.

I don't visit here a much as I used to.  Most of those I follow(ed) are not here any more.  Maybe they went to Facebook or Spotify or Twitter.  All I know is that those of you who are still here make me come back.  I haven't anything interesting to say right now.  Politics only make people angry (and with the two candidates rightly so).  At the moment my life is pretty boring, which is fine for me.  I'm trying to get some projects done...sewing, knitting, cleaning.  Nothing exciting. Still don't have pictures from my trip.  Maybe this weekend.  It's still summer weather here.  One of my neighbors is in Vermont...has been for a month now.  He's avoided the hot weather, and I do mean hot.  The garden is still producing tomatoes although I don't know how since we haven't had enough rain.  I'll be going out there this morning to water.  And pick.
Y'all have a cool day day.  And don't get all het up over the politicians.  It will be what it will be.

I haven't been here in a while.  I had to buy a new computer and am still trying to figure it out.  I bought  Machos software is quite different for me from Microsoft.  Also I went on a two week trip so didn't really think about the internet during that time.  It was a quilting cruise, of course, and we traveled from Amsterdam to England, Scotland, Iceland, and Norway.  I found the ship to be too big. She holds 3,000 passengers.  Too many people.  Too impersonal.  Hopefully I can figure this computer out soon and will be able to be here a bit more.  Meanwhile y'all take care and I'll talk to you again soon.

The manual arrived for my new computer.  It's 2 inches thick.  I also bought the manual for Dummies (since, when it comes to computers, I are one)).  It's all going to have to wait until I get back from my trip.  Yes, another one.  I'm traveling while I still can and seeing some parts of the world I haven't seen.  It's a cruise to England, Scotland, Iceland and Norway.  A quilting cruise where we will have classes while at sea.  I hope to post pictures on Facebook but don't guarantee it.  When I ge back I'll try to post pictures here but, again, don't guarantee it.
Y'all have a grand day.

New computer

I'm still trying to get used to my new computer.  For years I used computers with Microsoft.  When  I learned that the company was going to stop supporting older versions in hopes that people would download version 10 I decided to switch to Mac.  It's a bit different and it's going to take me a while to get used to it.  So many bells and whistles!  Sure do wish a manual came with it but that would probably be at least 6 inches thick.  Perhaps I could download and print what I need a little at a time.  Meanwhile y'all have a loverly day.

Haven't been here for a while as my computer decided to die.  Although I had everything transferred to a small spare that, too, decided it didn't like me anymore.  It hasn't died, yet.  Anyway I decided to get a new computer and had to wait for it to get here (that's another story).  It's good to be back.  I'll get all the old stuff transferred so I have familiar screens.
Y'all have a great day.

To water or not to water

When I checked the garden day before yesterday the melon plants were looking very sad.  Although I've been trying not to water because of lack of rain and my well having gone dry the last week I went ahead and watered, keeping my fingers crossed that it would revive them and the tomatoes and the peppers.  I didn't water for long and I watered just the veggies.  Looks like it did.  Then, that evening, I got out my rain rattle.  Yesterday we had rain, this morning early we had rain.  We may get more today.  We need it.  I don't know where the water comes from that's in my well.  It's 440 feet down.  They drilled through 400 feet of granite.  The water is sweet (yes, it is) and very refreshing.  Hopefully any rain we get will keep that water flowing and I'll continue to be careful with using it. Meanwhile I'll keep the rain rattle handy.
