Happy Whatever Wednesday

It's a windy day out there!!
sunny, temps in the low 60's
Not bad for the middle of March

I didn't mention yesterday, that we also had a huge taco bar at Kelly's baby shower in addition to the fabulous cake and yummy pastries. SO much good food and everyone really enjoyed it.  I didn't take a pic of the taco bar but there will more photos to share later taken by the photographer. 

Speaking of food...I had a scrumptious snack last night...

An English muffin with blackberry jam from Hiram Farm and tea in my MPH good!
Oh and ambiance courtesy of my MPH lavender scented candle. 

I mentioned earlier this week that my laptop had issues. Well, guess what? It has been working fine since I posted that! Too funny! I am still not ruling out getting a new one.

Here is an awesome verse to ponder on today....

Whatever Wednesday~computers & other things

My online time is limited lately and not by my choice!  

The laptop has issues. It's  too much for me to explain, but I have consulted with  my computer guy.


On the bright side, it is time for a new laptop!

... hepburn, hepburn, joy, jump, vintage - image #16492 on

Hopefully I will be able to get the new one within the next couple of weeks. 

Other Things
Did you ever have a day where small things kept going wrong?  
Nothing tragic, but just enough to irritate you and give you  a headache?

Here is our list today...
1. laptop wifi connection off and on..mostly off 
and the desktop is on it's last legs.

2. lost electricity for about 1 hour

3. garage door opener mechanism broke

4. wireless mouse on desktop computer died

5. I stepped in grease in the garage and tracked in the house onto the carpet.

6. playing waiting game for some financial business

But the good news is...

and ...
I will remember some of my many blessings of today...

1. tying up details for Kelly's baby shower this Saturday!

2. Spring like weather

3. laptop is working some of the time

4. I found the old mouse for the desktop

5, Dan fixed the garage door 

6. I was able to get grease out of carpet

7. coffee

be blessed
