Wind Chill

is in the mid 30s this morning. I'm thinking that's why my internet connection is sooooo s l o w.
Well, maybe not the whole thing, but certainly Yahoo. I just spent 15 min trying to reply.
And that was after rebooting. So, I shall just give up until this evening.

And I won't even attempt to upload pictures. But, if I did, and they actually loaded you'd get to see the yarn cakes I made from my acid dye yarn. Then your eyes would hurt from the glare. *L* I think I took the term *acid* a bit seriously.

And you would get to see my almost completely woven coin purse. As I was weaving on it last night (using worsted weight acrylic) I got to thinking that this would be a cool way to use up remainders of sock yarns. I'd sort of designed (in my head) a larger one with woven in designs. And then I looked at the clock and realized it wouldn't be a quick project. Just when I would think I was about done, I'd pack it down and shazamm it was if I hadn't done a thing *L*

It was a good project though since it seemed that last night was not a good night for counting. Or remembering a simple repeat. So the *to be started* Opera scarf is not a reality. And the sock flap isn't longer.

Laura, when you watch My Name is Earl this evening, laugh for me please. It's being pre-empted by a political 'town meeting'. It will be shown at 1:48 AM or some other dumb time and for reasons that are too long to go into, I can't tape it. On the good side though, when it's rerun time, there will be one I haven't already seen.

See ya!

LOL that is exactly how we look at shows we miss - when rerun time comes around it will be one we haven't seen. Smart hubby unplugged the TV and along with that the TiVo so our shows didn't record LOL.
It sounds to me like you need to download SpyBot and have it check your computer for hidden downloaded programs from the internet. Those programs will extremely slow you down.
Hugs!

Hi Susan! Your squares arrived in my mail today - along with the beautiful notepad and pencil!! Thank you so much. It was really sweet of you to think of me. I, too, am a lover of lists and notetaking. I promise it will be put to get use. Thanks again for the lovely squares!

Cat, I shall do that today. It's always a bit slow, dial-up,ya know. But still way faster than back in the days when I was running with a 14.4 modem *G*

Susan said...

Paris, yes thanks to you I do! My new one of cardboard, and the lovely one you gave me years ago. and, hopefully, before I get too old to learn, I'' master it too *G*
