This morning was full of errands.
I had a $20 rewards card to redeem at Staples before it expired…..$20 is ENOUGH of a chunk to make me NOT wan to waste it…and I bought something I have been telling myself to get for months, but just never got around to it..or forgot about it..you know how it goes! But never mind. I bought it.
What did I buy? A WHITE BOARD! I need to make notes for myself so that I don't forget things. I fel like I've forgotten a whole lot of everything lately and I'm hoping this will solve the problem!
While there I talked to the computer tech guy about this $9.99 computer diagnostics and tune up they are offering. I’ve been having trouble with my desk top stalling any time I open itunes. He told me what it “could” be…and he said they didn’t have a long line of things in for servicing right now so it was a good time to bring it in.
Living without my desktop is NOT easy for me because I love the big monitor, and I prefer to type on a regular keyboard as opposed to a laptop. I know everyone loves their laptops or tablets, I have both…but really? I’m much more comfortable with the scale of things and how I can type when sitting at a “REAL” computer! :c)
SO --- I’m desk-top-less for a few days. Which means I can’t update the website calendar as I only do that from ONE computer. It’s easier that way. That way all my masters are in one location, and ftp’d from one location, so I can’t forget and start editing on an obsolete file, uploading it and messing things up. Ask me how I know this is a PROBLEM!
That was stop #1….but stop #2!! Do you see that picture up there at the top of this post? We ran over to Home Depot for an area rug for the sun room ---- and I passed this display!
I DEFINITELY think that Santa needs to gift me with a new tile floor in my studio, and use this in the entrance way or something, don’t you? It was lovely! I think what I really liked was the subtle neutral tones. I’d love to do a mariners compass quilt in just neutral tones like this. Has anyone seen one?
I also came across THIS tile sample…..I would SO love this in my kitchen, or master bath!
So on to the recipe part! Remember I said I’d send these as soon as I found them so you have a greater chance of getting them before they aren’t free anymore??
