Print, print, print, print!

Goodmorning  everybody!

Gosh, I feel so proud of myself LOL! Saturday I had to go out to buy us the weekend newspaper and as it was nice weather I walked down the shopping street and I knew there was a little computerstore there. So I looked what they had and I saw an Epson printer. Took all my courage into my two hands and entered the store. And...........I came out with a printer for very little money. Quickly back home and now the hard stuff started ROFL.
First had to remove the program files from the old printer. Well, that was done without any trouble.
Then installing the new one. All started well, and when that was  finished of course I had to try it out and print a little document. Oh whee, no luck. The printer didn;t recognized the four cartridges. Damn, why can;'t something go smoothly with me in these kind of things???? Okay, took them out, placed them back, tried again, no result.
What could I do more????? Tried again, no, nothing. So I went back to the store, told them about it, guy at the counter didn;t understand it either, asked me to try again, if no luck, he asked me to bring the printer so he could take a look, and if something might be wrong, they would give me another printer. He was very patient and nice to me.
Back home, Jan was back also from a little walk. Now he is no great help in that, he never done anything with a computer, well, certainly not installing anything. He suggested I tried again, so I did.
Took out all cartridges again, placed them back again and after doing this about 3 times a miracle happened..............there came out a print. YEAH, it worked, oh whee, you cannot imagine how happy I was.
So I'll pass at the shop today to tell them everything is okay!
I wanted just a printer, but this one also can scan. But is real simple in using, and that all for just € 39,00.
And another nice thing is, that the cartridges aren't very expensive.
So here is sitting a very happy girl, completely exhausted I was yesterday, I am getting much too nervous, I know, but it seems to be in my character LOL. Let's hope, this printer will serve me well and for a long time.

Well, yesterday I spent a lot of time at the computer, made a new kit, uploaded other ones that I made earlier last week and Jan spent some time in the garden, cleaning up, removing things there(I didn;t want to know what exactly, cause he has the tendancy of removing the worng things LOL), sweeped the terrace, re-arranged the rack where we had e.g. the tomatoe plants standing, re-arranged another corner of the terrace where we have the little garden tools and sack with fresh soil, etc.
He was having great fun I believe. I must say it looks already much better. Later in March I will have to do some pruning, better when I do that, specially with the roses and the hydrangea!

Today I must do a few things in the house like laundry for sure. And must not forget to pay that visit to the computer store and then I also can post the envelope for the accountant for the tax declaration. Pfffff, I'll be glad when that is on the way!
Freebie time! Kit is named "Satisfction", can be used for lots of things.
Have a great day!
