So far I love our new computer...has lots of bells and whistles I'm still getting acquainted with. When the sweet man purchased it, they had no more of the screens that came with the computer, so it was ordered. It came 2 days ago and hubby installed it yesterday. Looks like a television set on my desk!!! It's 23" and quite a change from my little screen from my last computer.
Well, the problem is that it's hard to get accustomed to it...it's so friggin' wide!!! I also bought new glasses, after 3 years of looking through glass/plastic. The bifocal is very strong but I know I've been operating with an old prescription and by old bifocal was being used for usual vision...now that's bad!! oey vey! So here I sit squinting at this mega screen, using the new bifocals and wondering where that little arrow is...it get lost in all this wasteland of space and I'm constantly moving the keyboard to make room for the mouse in the search for the arrow.
I know, I'm complaining and I shouldn't...I've got more important things to complain about!!! Today I should go into the studio, but I still have to self-clean my oven. I waited till the temps fell in order go turn it on. It's blowing right now and in the 40's, probably colder with the wind chill...thank God, no snow!!! I know many of you are digging your way out the door every day while we bask in 60 degree weather most of the time. I usually don't even wear a sweater when the weather is like that....t-shirt, jeans or sweats....that's my winter wear. However, it's funny to see all these people wearing gloves, coats, woolly scarves, boots, you get the idea, just because the calender says it's a winter month. To be fair, I'm like my wonderful maternal grandmother, she was always hot, no matter what the temps were outside, so I've inherited that...made for a very miserable menopause....no more hot flashes, just hot!!! LOL When I was in school, I recall all the cute coeds wearing their winter clothes in the Fall semester....it was still 90+ degrees outside, but they had to wear their new clothes. I don't remember dressing like that when I was in school the first time around, in the early 70's. My wardrobe in the summer and fall months were t-shirts, cut-offs and clogs, of course we were in that hippie stage of our lives. I remember some people wore no shoes...ma-roons!!! You can fry on egg on the sidewalks during the heat....I know because most desert kids have tried it in the summer!!! LOL
Well again, I've gone into a tangent....first about the hu-eg screen that shines before me, my new glasses that are forcing me to see better and now the weather and fashion...my English profs would cringe if they read my blogs!! Oh well, time to get the beans on and fire up that oven then go into my happy place and stare at the walls!! Peace out.
