I´ve uploaded some more on my laptop.

Goodmorning everybody!

Yeah, I´ve managed to upload a few programs on my laptop. and oh, that wasn+t without a little struggling.
Some programs have install cd´s, okay, I know how to use the dvd reader, hahaha, but when I tried to put in one of the cd´s, it didn´t read it. Oh bummers, I was sad and angry at the same time. Well, I went back to the shop on Monday, and then I felt sooooooooooooooooooooooo stupid. The girl there was rather a wizz kid and had no trouble reading whatever cd or dvd. What was the matter= It was me, not placing the cd as it had to. I just had to wriggle a bit with the cd to click it on place. On the other hand, although I felt like a 4 year old, I was glad there wasn+t a failure in my laptop, so home again I treid it again and yeah, all worked.
Pfffffff, what a relief LOL.
I even installed my PSE 8 again and made already two papers. I only have to get used to the smaller screen, working in PSE8, cause the new files aren´t showing up very big. I was used to my big screen with the laptop, you know.
Now I just stumbled over an article, that shows very easy how to connect a bigger screen to your laptop. That would be awesome!! I will try that out on a quiet moment, for sure.

Yesterday Jan went for his scan to hospital, it was quickly done. Monday he was at the Health security office, and had a ohonecall yesterday for an appointment with the `occupational health employe`.
Hmmm, then they will try to figure out, if or for how much Jan will be able to do work)not talking yet about finding it on almost 62 years hahahaha'. But they are not so smart, cause they better had waited a few days, after Jan had his evaluation from his doctor next Monday.
But their conclusion(od the health security) is important, because that will tell us how much money Jan will be payed if he gets any from them.
we´ll see how this will end and what actions we might have to take.

Today looks to be a slightly better weather day, sun is shining, may be we will even reach around a 20C temperature! And we do need some more time with a bit of warmer weather and sunshine)had enough rain the last two weeks, but mostly because we still have tomatoes on our plants that need to color.
Yesterday we had some paprika as vegetable at dinner, and I collected some of the seeds. Will try to plant them next spring and see if they will do anything. I succeeded once with my pear tree, so why not give it a try with paprika?

Well, it is about time I make some fresh coffee and then wake up Jan) I wanted him to have a long sleep today, after his visits to hospital and Health security office.
If he feels okay, may be a visit to the market could be nice.
So girls, I hope to start soon posting some freebies again, but may be it will take another week, or may be even two before there will be something ready. Also depending on life gives us time and on how soon I will have back some stash for designing.
It takes some time to search around the net to find nice brushes, or styles and such. I know some places where I can find them for free, but I want to be picky about them, to not have loads on the computer that finally I will not use.
And I want to have an external harddisk first too)for as less money as possible of course LOL), so that i can put all the scrapbook stuff there.
Next couple of weeks will be kind of exciting( or oerhaps a bit stressing), due to the allowance Jan might get or not.
we´ll see how all will progress, and we´ll cross our fingers very hard.
For now I say bye bye, till the next post.
Have a fantastic day.

I will keep my fingers and toes crossed and hope that Jan makes out good at his appointment. It will be a relief to know exactly how much money you have when figuring your budget.

It takes a lot of time to build up your stash again. I think the external hard drive is a great idea.

My friend has her laptop hooked up to a large monitor on her desk so that she can see things better. She can even work back and forth from one screen to the other. I have not figured that one out yet.

Now I must get dressed and get a few things done around the house. DIL Janet will be here later after work and I'm looking forward to our visit.

You have a wonderful day my friend, hugs, Edna B.

Good luck to Jan at the Security Office. I'm facing the same thing with our Dept of Labor. You'd think it was their own money but it's a trust set aside for Nuclear workers (and I put in almost 20 years in that one). And the last CT scan showed Asbestos in the right lung. But I have hired an Advocate to speak for me. As an old Sailor I don't interact well with condescending Hygienists who have no idea what a clerk or scheduler actually do. But she found several accidents in my files that I had forgotten about which prove a clerk is subject to "Other duties as assigned".

Today is the second of my Cataract surgeries. It's been great these last two weeks having the right eye be almost perfect. Distance is perfect. up close needs a little help from some readers. It's been wonderful to see things without a cloud over the eye.

Time to jump in the shower and get ready!

Take your time getting new kits together. I haven't any idea how to do it which makes me very grateful for those of you that do.

Thanks for all you do and Prayers for Jan and you also.

We'll all keep our fingers crossed, too! Hope you have a great day!

Hello and Thank you for this update Kyra.
At present you have been experiencing a very large learning curve.
You should NOT feel stupid just because you haven't learned how to do something yet. It all takes time.
You are already far more talented than me and I'm sure many others who visit your page.
I for one really appreciate all the work you do and yours and Jan's health and other obligations are far more important than doing a kit...
