The only fiber action today is this new yarn that I got for free! I don't know what I'll do with the cotton, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. And I don't even know what the orange sherbert looking stuff is, but I thought it would make a nice wash cloth or doily since there's not that much of it. The coup of the new addition however is that totally beautiful sock yarn, I have no idea what brand it is, but I think it's gorgeous. Since it doesn't have a name I'm going to call it "Autumn Stroll". I can't wait to give it a try with my new sock skills. I'm going to try a smaller hook this time because I think it'll make a nice fabric that way.
The past 24 hours have been busy. On Wednesday I wrote about balance, my lack of it to be specific. To add to the chaos I've been feeling, I spent way to many hours trying to make friends with Facebook (that's me asking for help on the Rav Group The Blog Hub). Eventually we established what can only be considered an "association". Friendship I fear is not in the cards for us. On top of that I've been trying to buy a new computer for the past two weeks. Really. I've somehow managed to turn a fairly straight forward purchase into I don't even know what. How's that possible? Here's the quick version: I purchased computer 1, brought it home, set it up and used it for about 10 days. It couldn't stay connected to the internet (wirelessly) and the space bar stuck. I tried trouble shooting with my internet provider with no improvement. Back it goes. Computer 2 (a different brand) comes home, gets set up and is incredibly slow and temperamental on the internet. Some pages open, some don't, those that do are so slow I could make dinner while waiting. I try to adjust settings, firewalls and such. It doesn't get any better. Back in the box it goes. And oh yeah, my son's 7 year old laptop is working like a champ so I know the connection is fine. Today I went to the store for one last try. The bright side of this adventure has been the staff at the store who have made the exchanges easy. I was going to get my money back, but I was assured by the friendly clerk that I can try another one if I want and as long as I keep my receipt I can bring it back (for any reason) within 15 days for a full refund. I figured why not? So here I am with yet another model computer. It's been about 6 hours and it seems like the third time might be the charm. I'm staying connected, the keys don't stick and it even has the big 17 inch screen (fancy!). Buying a computer shouldn't be like this, and I've probably added to the situation because I refuse to settle and I refuse to spend 3 hours on the phone with the manufactures tech support who I can't understand trying to adjust something that I just spent a bunch of money on. I'd rather take it back to the store. Again and again.
Now I'm going to relax and see what's happening at Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Why don't you join me?
Until next time friends,
