A beautiful start to the morning today. I had just finished my meditation which had reminded me once again to be present in the moment and what do I see outside the back door but a beautiful sunrise! This picture does not do it justice.
But there are other beginnings.
Following what I thought were endings.
My trusty laptop failed me. It would not charge. I had replaced the battery but still charging was hit and miss. One top of that the touch mouse thingy is another hit and miss. The left mouse button is generally a fail. My cheap backup laptop (purchased on a trip a few years ago when I spilled something on my main laptop) had melted a few keys on the keyboard and was inconvenient for any real input.
So, I decided to buy a new computer. I was originally looking for a laptop but then thought that we no longer had a desktop and we will be spending more time at home rather than travel. I have been fascinated by the all in one touchscreen computers that my sister and daughter have. I use a computer a lot in the kitchen for recipes but am always squinting at the small print on the Kindle Fire or laptop. So, I decided to get an All-in-one.
I am very pleased. I certainly admit that touchscreen capability is addictive. I am learning Windows 8 but have at least had a head start by bumbling with my sister’s and daughter’s computers. Thank goodness for online tutorials. If learning something new makes your brain younger, I just dropped ten years!
At the same time, I ordered a new cord for one laptop and replacement keys for the other. I now have three computers. Can one woman have too many?
