This is the time of winter when you think it’s NEVER going to get warm again. Summer’s warmth seems like a distant memory as the wind howls, the temperature sinks to single digits, and the snow flies past the window… This picture I took last fall is a reminder that warmer days will return, and sooner than I think.
Just got off the phone with my mom. Yesterday was her 90th birthday. She lives in Florida with my sister, Sue, and my brother-in-law, Chip. Chip is getting rid of their land line, so my mom now has her own cell phone, and her very own phone number. She was so cute, describing how Chip had put my phone number into her phone, and all she had to do was push a button, and it would scroll to my number, and she could call me just like that!
Poor Mom, she wanted to give me her new phone number, but I told her I had caller ID, and I’d get her new number off my phone. She wasn’t too sure about that, but I finally convinced her it would work just fine (and it did).
It’s funny, I spend so much time online goofing around with my blogs, and writing articles, that sometimes I forget how much I’ve managed to learn in the past few years. But I guess I’m still a bit technologically challenged, too. My cell phone is a TracPhone, which I’m perfectly happy with. I don’t text, or do instant messages, or have a data plan on my cell phone, so I guess I’m still living in the stone age as far as that goes!
I’m taking a freelance writing course online, so I spent the morning working on setting up my website for my writing business. (You can check it out at DarleneNorris.com, if you want, although there’s not much on it yet, other than my resume.) I was checking my links to make sure they all worked, and discovered that one of my blogs was down. Sigh. I deleted a bunch of old stuff the other day, and apparently deleted a little too much!
Oh well, I wanted to update it anyway. So I had to get busy and get it back up, since that particular site is a pretty good money-maker for me. It’s up and running again now, although it still needs a little tweaking. But since my brain is pretty much mush right now, I think that’s a chore for either tonight or tomorrow.
Haven’t done a lot of weaving lately. I finally finished up the burgundy shawl, and it’s off the loom. The fringe is twisted on one end, but I still have to do the other end. It’ll get done in the next few days, hopefully. It’s flung over the back of the rocking chair in the living room, so it can remind me that it’s still not done. Soon, soon.
