I have to admit I go through a funk when the gardening season is over. I miss being outdoors every day, hands in the soil, and seeing bright colors.
Next week is the annual poinsettia open house at the UNH Greenhouse so I’ll enjoy that. We also have a tree trimming crew coming so maybe I’ll grab a chair and a blanket and sit outside and watch a maple come down and two oaks get trimmed. Wow – that’s desperate even for me. 🙂
Winter has definitely arrived including cold temps, lots of wind, and some snow flurries. Matter of fact, if you are a skier, come on up this holiday weekend because the slopes are open and ready for business.
Technical issues arrived a couple of weeks ago in the form of a battery not holding a charge and then some other crazy things like a cursor that roams around the screen and saved passwords not working. Who knew when you need a new battery in your Mac that it is glued in because they’d prefer that you buy a new one rather than have it repaired. For the first time, the Apple Genius bar blew me off at an appointment so I am dealing with a small local computer repair store. The battery should be in next week and hopefully after a few hundred dollars, some solvent carefully applied, and a couple of days in service it will be working better.
I also switched from a Samsung Note to an iPhone, and I’ve definitely had some physical adjustments there as well. Which one do I like better? I’m not sure yet.
Thank heavens I have a local long arm quilter who is quite reasonable because I would otherwise not tackle large projects like this. My granddaughter picked out a nice assortment of blue and purple material for me to work on a quilt top for her while I’m in SC.
We’ll have traditional dinner with our daughter and family and get the holiday season officially started with some serious, good eating.
Here’s wishing you and yours all the best in this upcoming holiday season, and if you are traveling this week be safe. 🦃
