I’m surviving Spring Break so far – the hubby is in his final week, the kids have been back to school since last week (and have this Friday off), so naturally the time is flying by fairly quickly. The hubby and I have been enjoying some one-on-one time, making the most of those precious school hours and the house being quiet as a mouse.
I did, however, end up fighting with my computer for the better part of the week last week – last Wednesday my computer decided to go into a perpetual loop of the dreaded Blue Screen Of Death.
Two times within two weeks is not cool.
Some days I wish I didn’t have so many necessary Windows programmed software, I’d totally jump ship and move on over to a shiny new apple instead. But alas and alack, I’m kind of stuck. Unless they’ve improved their mode of utilizing windows programs on a Mac – can any of my Mac friends confirm or deny?
So needless to say I was offline from Wednesday until the weekend, fighting with it and finally giving up and refreshing again, making me have to re-install everything again. Computers are supposed to make your life easier, and yet more often than not, they tend to make them more difficult.
Can I get an Amen?
Speaking of making things difficult… Yesterday an Alaskan Airlines flight had to return to SeaTac airport only 5 minutes after they’d taken off.
Why? Because somehow one of the luggage dudes had gotten himself locked in the cargo hold prior to take off.
Because he fell asleep.
Bet he’s going to catch a lot of grief for sleeping on the job, no?
Not to mention the exorbitant cost involved of the jet fuel consumed for take off and having to turn around because they heard someone banging from the cargo hold, plus the costly response of fire trucks and police greeting the plane on its return 15 minutes or so later.
That’s going to turn out to be one expensive nap.
It’s time once again for Rory Bore’s Tuesday Chat!
This week’s prompt or question is:
“Favourite things. What are loving these days?”
Well of course it goes without saying that these two are my favorite things:
And these two dorks:
And these two:
And of course all of these:
The hubby avoids the camera like a plague, then makes funny faces when he’s captured on camera.
As far as favorite things that aren’t people or pet related, at the top of the list, naturally, is wine. And winemaking. It’s fun not only to drink wine, but to make it. Like these:
And many other varieties. Especially coming up with labels and incorporating the Nag’s mug on them. You know, because the wine is named after her. Of course.
Also, I’m a collector of anything deer related – one of these days I’ll have to take pictures of my favorite ones. They’re everywhere. Luckily the hubby is tolerant of deer things taking over the house, because that’s how I roll.
What are a few of your favorite things?
