wednesday evening…

I’m all wore out from the bike ride we did after work. Sweetous and I rode the trails in Waters Landing for an hour. So I have just been listening to music on the PC and chilling out at the keyboard. I got a lot done at work today, hopefully tomorrow will be a good one too…

wednesday morning…

I got a lot done at work yesterday despite having started later than usual. I had to take Puppy to the vet to get spayed. I was anxious about her, but she is ok,  although not her usual frisky self.

I spend a lot of time on the internet, so yesterday evening I deliberately decided to let the computer alone and read on the porch instead. It was nice a cool with a breeze and very cloudy. Roxanne stayed out there with me to get petted whilst I read.

This morning has been non-hectic so far and I’m hoping things stay that way.

sunday afternoon….

The weekend sure has gone by fast ! Friday was a high stress day at work; was trying to get some stuff done but was deluged with special requests and such. Best Buy called me on Friday to get my replacement computer. I went to get it but noted that they were giving me my 2 gig memory in a bag, not the computer. I told them that was in the old computer when I bought it so they ought to install it as part of the warranty replacement. The Geek Squad guy had to consult a manager, but the manager agreed with my reasoning and they installed that for me. I picked the computer up on Saturday and then Sweetous and I had dinner with Steve and LB. Right now I am listening to music on the new  computer and  fixing all my bookmarks etc.  I may install some software today, but perhaps not ’cause I have a head cold and may goto bed early.

wednesday morning…

I went for a walk this morning before work and rode my bike with Sweetous both yesterday and the day before ! My Lenovo notebook is in the shop for repairs and now the old Toshiba is not working either ! BALLS ! One good thing about that though is I have been reading more. I finished a book last night: At Hell’s Gate which is the personal story of an American Soldier in Viet Nam who is now a Zen monk working for the cause of peace. The author tells about his own suffering and how he is dealing with it through the practice of mindfulness; an interesting and moving book, I recommend it.
