Not communicating very well lately. I did eat a salad yesterday! I did get the plumber to check out Beaver and there is water and all is well - but it is going to minus 25 tonight so I hope that does not freeze the water somewhere under the house. I hope to go Friday. I tried to ask the plumber to add in a heater from the studio but he did not appear to be comprehending me so I decided not to confuse him.

I did get hold of the fellow who said he would clear the Beaver drive and yes he will check on it and keep it clear. I did get the Christmas turkey boiled up and de-boned and added veggies so there is a meal ready. A couple days ago I tried a lovely Indian meal but the sauce - from a jar - was way too hot. I can manage it but not R.

AND - drumroll!!!! Today I trekked to the Apple store to pick up new lap top. Not near as expensive as my new car! But still, with that and the chimney installation for the woodstove and a donation toward scholarships for a wildlife rehab course this weekend - I am overly extended for the next couple months - and the plumbe which I hope will not be a great amount! I will juggle.

In the meantime, my hours at the Apple Store were toxic and exhausting and inconclusive. Had to phone Applehelp to get help with emails - very nice fellow magically helped with a couple issues. I am now happily FBing and more, with my tiny new airbook. May even try using the TV option son provided.

I will let R play with the old one. Ephraim calls it a "classsic"! The guys at Apple referred to it as "heritage"! From 2007, my son is amused that it lasted this long. The new one seems tiny and lightweight! And will be wonderful once I learn more. I have a training session booked next week.

The best part was getting home before rush hour!!! I got lost on the way there and had a tour of a nice residential area... I may knuckle under and try to deal with a GPS. Understanding the verbal is a problem for me.
