Today is Two Shoes Tuesday
and the prompt is
sacred and/or store.
I have shopped at the Amazon store
Josie had a drawing to celebrate her
Two Shoes Tuesday 100th post.
And I won!
$100.00 Amazon Gift Card.
So cyber shopping I went.
I have two new things:
A Charging Station for my tablet and phone.
It is great because it eliminates the need for extension cords
to accommodate all the wires needed to charge stuff.
As you can see it has places for three plugs
and what you can’t see is the place for three for USB cords.
My tablet is my alarm clock.
While I sleep it charges, :)
and wakes me up in the morning. :(
Then I got a super-duper Blu-Ray DVD player.
It plays all kinds of discs and has wi-fi.
With the wi-fi I can stream Netflix, Hulu, Pandora,
and other stuff I don’t know about yet.
I can also download stuff from my computer to a jump drive thingie
and then plug the thingie into the DVD player and
I can see it on my computer.
As you can see the player is not hooked up.
The DVD player has 17 pages of set up instructions.
I think I will need some time and patience when I tackle this project.
Maybe a bottle of wine.
Of course, the reviews on Amazon say it is easy to do.
But then the folks who posted those reviews
are the ones that survived the process to write about it.
I will let you know how it goes.
Thank you, Josie!
The snow and ice are gone.
Everything is back to normal
although some folks still don’t have power,
and that is not good…they are not especially happy.
I would be very cranky.
So all is well…but…
last night we had an earthquake.
It was a 4.1 centered about 60 miles from here.
There was a loud noise and the building sort of vibrated.
No damage and no one hurt.
So all is well.
I have experienced
tornadoes, blizzards, a hurricane, ice storms, and now an earthquake.
I am thankful that I survived them all
with just some inconvenience and no bad stuff.
Wonder what will be next?

Guess what…don’t even try…this is so unbelievable you will never guess it.
I am working on my own blog!
Mama has to help cause I don’t have fingers and so can’t type.
Anyway, I am putting it all together and will let you know when I am online.
It’s a bit of work, you know. Lots to think about; theme, and background, about page, stuff like that.
Mama’s cautiously mildly sort of going forward with the idea.
But I am excited.
So excited I am worn out!
I’ve checked things off the list!
You know the dreaded to-do list.
A friend and I went shopping and I got stuff I needed to have to actually do something on the list.
- Teddy has a spiffy new placemat for his dishes
- the bathroom has a new shower rod (not really a new rod but a cover for the old rod so it looks new) and new hooks for the shower curtain.
- I also got some things I needed to start Christmas gifts so I am good to go those projects.
- new extension cord so I can plug all the techie things that need to be charged every night.
- got a haircut.
- took an over due book back to the library.
- took a package to the Fed Ex pick up place.
A very good couple of days.
