The wind is beating against the house and there is now a five-foot snowbank in front of the kitchen window. Scott walked to the end of the driveway this morning to catch a ride to town in a four-wheel drive. It’s not a blizzard, but visibility on the road is poor.
Going for a walk with the dogs today is out of the question. I’d lose Ducky Doodle in a snowbank if he didn’t blow away first.
WWW, I tried to comment on your blog but the laptop isn’t letting me. Just know that I’m reading faithfully, as always! And I agree, often we aren’t aware of our own prejudices and if they are pointed out to us, we refuse to see or admit to them. I also notice that while we may at the moment say “No way, not me!”, we’ll often walk away and think about things when we don’t feel defensive in the presence of another person. I see evidence of quite a lot of that.
My Hero did a scan/defrag/whatever on the laptop that took overnight to complete, and now at least I can access my usual favourites. He has far more patience and stick-to-it-iveness with these machines than I do. Thank goodness there’s someone like that around. Still no luck with the iMac though. Maggie, I tried the suggestions from the search, but nada. Fortunately I do have my files backed up onto a thumb drive; unfortunately these PC laptops won’t read the Mac thumb drive so I can’t lay hands on everything. Oh well it’ll all be there when I want it. Nothing is lost forever.
Last night’s meatballs were fabulous (if I say so myself) so I threw the leftovers (homemade tomato sauce, spaghetti) all together into a casserole that’s about to come out of the oven for lunch, so off I go. It may be a do-nothing day but at least Scott’s home again, safe and sound, and the power’s still on.
