I suppose I could look on the bright side. Since I couldn’t be too far away from the “facilities” I had a chance to get a few things knocked off my “to do” list when I was feeling up to it.
One of my house plants, a Swedish Ivy, had gotten crazy big. I bought a new, larger pot for it a few weeks ago and I finally made the switch. If you’re one of those people that has a brown thumb, get one of these plants. They grow like weeds even with the most minimal of care.
I finally watched Casablanca. It has been driving my BIL bonkers that I have never seen that movie. It is one of his favorites and one he considers a standard setter. He’s in the business so I guess he would know. I’ve had it from the library for a couple of weeks so when I was feeling a bit punk yesterday afternoon I slipped it in the DVD player. It was funny knowing so many of the lines from the movie having never seen it before.
I don’t know the last time, if ever, I backed up my laptop. With all the pictures we take, the hard drive was full. I was frequently getting error messages telling me that files could not be saved. So, new external drive in hand, it is now backed up, cleaned up, and a bit more spacious. And since I was fiddling with the computer, I installed tax software and got ‘em done. Yeah me!
I picked up a book that’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now, Confessions of an Ex-Feminist by Lorraine V. Murray. I’m wishing I would have started it sooner. She is an excellent writer with an engrossing story to tell. When I finish, I’ll write more about it. It would make good Lenten reading for anyone looking for something.
Hmm? Maybe I should get sick more often.
Nah, not worth it.
