    h i all i have been keeping busy re learning or practicing my touch typing skills and am discovering every keyboard is a learning experience lol Then when i get good again lol i will type up some notes and revisions and stuff on a story i wrote a while back, i only have the rough draft on paper and want it all done so i can put it on a thumb drive and save it. first job was to find a word processor online as microsoft is not a given anymore with windows unless you buy the app i found a decent one but with no spell check and i really need that so back to the drawing board i finally found a good one with spell check lol so im good to go i guess now so no more procrastinating lol Those darn tablets spoiled me for touch type as you had to use one or two fingers on them and i couldn't use the touch type on them so i got used to that i dont now how the people do it on cell phones So i got the first two pages re wrote and cleaned up and that is all for now lol I also might try to re submit it but this time to a children's publisher back in the day, i only had the writers Market guide, and these days, we have the internet!!I am hoping to find one that accepts it lol i did collect lots of encouraging rejection letters though lol I think i framed them lol I really believe it is a good story for kids other than that all's well oh we are expecting to get up to 8 more at least inches of snow this weekend we have no idea where to put it lol I guess that old man W still has some ooomph left huh who says when enough is enough though maybe if we all shout it together huh ok on three one two three enough winter!! maybe he will get it now huh!!

    2019 Wish List

    ok i found it lol im glad too its back i am always referring to this list for goodies to send i guess i will list what i can 1. if you want to make a hat or a scarf (warm winter weight) for my favorite charity i will send it off with my things to them or keep them for next years donations to them or if you prefer i could send out the address to you and you could mail them something with me in mind 2. now that i drink coffee now and then, i would love to try some new tasty teas too 3. any thing sugar free, as it hard to find much here in the way of candy or cookies or even crackers i like werthers originals and stovers sugar free anything lol 4 I use clover hooks pretty exclusively for crochet , mostly the upper ones from g to k so anyone of those as im always losing or misplacing the one I need lol 5 I guess i should list a fold up or roll up or hard case for the hooks huh lol 6 notions such as yarn needles, stitch markers , and other little help full things 7 last but not least send me a note about you, or anything you make, or a hello card or postcard and show me your city!!

    hi everyone i never got the whole groundhog thing , Mary jo, lol so never paid it much mind but 6 to 8 more inches of snow in the next 24 hours still means old man winter is a stubborn old fool huh!! if old man winter is waiting for a cheaper flight to the beach he better get packed up real fast before all the good first class seats are gone!! well talked to sis today her speech has really gotten so bad,she had a speech therapist but fired her a while back so ... what i could understand of our conversation is she is ok for now, said she has fallen three times so dr. says she can not go anywhere without the rollator i got for her months back said she didnt get hurt, but her scoliosis in her back is getting worse too her body is deteriorating I think, little by little, and she says there is no cure for all her ills well today is bright, sky looks like snow, but sun peeks out now and then old Sol is trying to trick Old man winter by faking him out with sunshine, but in these temps, (3) this am he is trying in vain i think Old man winter has a little bit left for us i think yet to come . He is such a blustery bully sometimes!! looking forward to my lunch today, as i have 1/2 my sweet onion teriyaki chicken sub sandwich left from yesterday so many fresh vegies in it, i love it lol and Handy has hid philly beef and cheese lol then ill do some chores perhaps, and then sit for a bit and crochet or something so hope you all are ok, sandra glad you are posting again, we all missed you, pineknot how did the colon thing go?Mary Jo glad your numbers were good for you both hi carol and trib and avon too all for right now i may be back after chores and lunch though lol
