Progress is going slow.

Goodmorning everybody!

It's already good to be able to read my mail and do some blogreading and then write a short post here.
But I am just progressing very slowly at the computer, have still to install some programs and such, and have to learn how windows 7 is working, although it's not so much different from the vista.
But Jan has windows 8 on his laptop and that is completely different. It all comes down to practice and such, but at the moment I cannot say that I like the way of working with it.
But as I said, it needs a bit of time and when knowing how to get around in windows 8 probably after some weeks or so you ask yourself: "why did I had trouble getting around in it?"LOL
Now the only thing I want to buy is an external harddisk, so that I can do backups and also have more room for scrapbook stash and things I want to keep. I just have to discipline myself in making every now and then a bbackup, if only from files that change a lot.

Not spending as much time at the computer as usual, there is time to do some other stuff, of course and so I do. Most of the time I am working on a kintting project, cannot be too specific about it in case Heidi will take a look at my blog. But when it is ready I will make aphoto.

Yesterday I went to heidi's home to take out the doggies(she phoned me the day before to ask if I had time).
As Séverine still has school holiday, they go out on some daytrips but cannot always take the dogs with them.
Oh my, they were so happy to see me and they really needed their walk to do some urgent business!
Sunday will be a little bit of special day, cause then we will be married for 7 years already!
I think I will cook us a tasty meal to kind of celebrate it. How quick time passes, it looks to me if we had our wedding day about 3 or 4 years ago.

Then Mondau Jan has his interview with the Health Security council and hopefully there will be good news, like getting a disability payment, cause at the moment he really isn;t able to do any work. Struggling still(which always will stay) with his back but also with his belly and all that kind of thing, he still is under treatment and adding his health problems to his age, I hope they will be nice to him.

Weather here is still not to really cheer about, temperatures are too low, on and off we have rainshowers and a little bit of sunshine, guess we are paying back the good weather we had in June and July.
But who knows, it could be the sign of real good autumn weather, Have to do some shopping today, but must really choose the moment that it will stay dry for a while.
Although there is happening enough around here, not all is really worthwhile talking about, so I think I will end my post now.
Wishing you all a terrific weekend and thanks for your support comments!!!

Hello Kyra, Thank you for the update. It is better to take your time than to hurry when learning new things.
It is a good idea to get an external hard drive to back up your work too.
I wish you and Jan a very Happy Anniversary for Sunday, I hope you both have a fantastic weekend. Time does seem to go fast when you are happy in your marriage...

I hope you have a lovely anniversary on Sunday! God bless you both and thank you so much for all the lovely kits that you've posted. My daughter and I enjoy looking at them and all the lovely things that you've made. Have a wonderful weekend!

Goodness, I hope Jan has better luck learning the windows 8 than the folks I know. It's not a very well liked version.

Wow, congratulations and Happy Anniversary!! I hope the weather on Sunday is just beautiful. Pogo and I are wishing you many more years of happiness.

Good luck to Jan for his visit on Monday. I hope all works out well for him.

Today I rented a big truck and we all got together to move my oldest grandson from one apartment to another. Now we're back home and it's time to rustle up some supper for us.

You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

Hello sweet lady! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some encouragement! I think you are being wise to go slowly on installing on the laptop. You will love it when you do get used to 7. So much better than Vista! I am still using 7 on my PC and my laptop. I hope Jan enjoys using his and learning new things...we are never too old to do that. It was so kind of Heidi and Danny to offer you that one to use indefinitely and I do hope you get to switch carriers for your Digital TV. I don't know what I would do without my DVR system that records one or two or three shows while I watch another one...LOL! I am now trying to learn how to use streaming and get rid of the other all together, but am not ready to let go yet, I watch too many things on local TV stations that are not on the Hulu Plus yet. ROFL here!
Hopefully Jan will get the disability he deserves so will keep my fingers crossed for a good interview tomorrow. In the meantime, you both enjoy your anniversary to the hilt. I am wishing you many, many more years together.
Off now to take my shower, I just finished vacuuming and wet mopping the whole house and I need a shower and dry clothes badly...LMBO! All the fur kids are sleeping and it isn't tooooo HOT here yet Only 92F but headed to 100+ today again and tomorrow too. Tomorrow is the first day of school for our area...means more traffic...ugh! O well, gotta keep up with life changes every day don't we? Love and hugs to both of you especially on your special day! Mat

Good afternoon Kyra:)
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you and Jan! Hope it has been a terrific day so far!!:)
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment for me.It sure gets lonesome over there sometimes.:)
Jim had Windows 8 and didn't care for the style. He preferred the Windows 7 layout. He doesn't have a touch screen monitor so it didn't appeal to him. Went back to Windows 7.:) I am still on Vista and happy with it.LOL
Yes..Chelsea is a lot of company and since she is still a pup..learning what is allowed and what is not. She sure is stubborn though.LOL She has become part of our pack now.hehe
Sure am happy to see you are back to blogging again.Missed you!<3

Huge hugs,
