I got home last night past dark. I stayed in the basement most of the morning catching up with “STUFF” and mostly being mad at new programs, new computers, and trouble with my paid subscription for the anti-virus software I have subscribed to for YEARS. And it’s been a good one. But I am NOT resubscribing after my subscription runs out in May ---you wanna know why?
I called for customer support when it wouldn’t install --- and after about 20 minutes worth of dealing with India, I discover that the number they had me dial sent me to another company called iyogi and they wanted to charge me over $300 to “FIX” my new computer that is still under warranty --- Oh I was SO ANGRY I just hung up…and I’m giving up on the company that has had my business for years because of this bait and switch technique. Good thing I didn’t allow them to make any changes on my computer..they have this thing where they can “fix” it remotely from their end! NO THANK YOU!
So I’m fuming. *SIGH* and I go out to catch some fresh air and bring in the mail and….
I run back in and get the camera…..because…
THERE ARE DAFFODILS BLOOMING ALL OVER MY YARD!!!
This must have happened over the past week while I’ve been gone, and I didn’t notice them after dark last night. I’m so happy I’ll be here to enjoy them for the next several days ---and I’m resisting the urge to go snip them and bring them inside where their vibrant yellow cups can brighten the inside of my house that is so longing for spring to really be here!
The other thing that is chasing the blues of online frustration away?
My new nephew has made his appearance! This is Ben!
He is the most handsome, perfect, adorable baby EVER! Next to my own, of course --- and I’m one proud Auntie Bonnie! This is the little fella I was making the Story-Time Stars quilt for….and don’t you know it, those stars are right there in his eyes?!
Happy Birthday, little Ben!
