As you may remember, recently I have had some......technical problems....
First, someone hacked into my email address and sent pharmaceutical advertisements to my contact list....again and again and again.....forcing me to get a new address.
Then my eldest farmhand wished to purchase my laptop (too tight to purchase a new one) so I bought a mini
which I am just, just beginning to become familiar with...
To add insult to injury, my camera died and could not be fixed, so I purchased a new Nikon Coolpix, and am trying to learn to use that. Lastly, both our cordless phones died, and we had to get new phones. I said it before and I'll repeat it...I am in some sort of Tech HELL. My only tech help, my long-suffering brother, is extremely busy with the first couple weeks of school AND cleaning out my father's garage for a sale of 1,000,000 tools for my mother, so I have tried not to bother him anymore than I can possibly help...all is lost when it comes to communication here at Farm and Fru-Fru.
I HAVE used the time away from all things technical to take care of some LOW tech business...more mending.
Mind you, I never said I was good at it, but there is something very relaxing about sitting and stitching even if it is a very well-worn garment not really worth saving.
The repetition of stitching around and around the tear is soothing to my tech-worn soul and before I know it, I have forgotten that my new camera does not operate like my old one, and I find that I really do not
care after all if my pictures are a little fuzzy...I am sitting on my porch in the coolest breeze since last May with a pile of ragged shirts that a normal person would not even use as rags...the computer is humming nicely inside doing it's own thing and I did not even bother to bring the cordless phone outside....and yet, I am surviving....who knew in this day and age that was possible?
