Newbee in computering sometimes tiresome!

Goodmorning everybody!

Oh my, Jan is slowly liking to be at his computer, he is discovering all sorts of things but this also can be tiresome at times for me LOL.
Like yesterday evening. I was all prepared to watch a police serie I like, and be able to knit a bit on my blanket. So I was installed with my coffee, all ready to relax and have a nice evening. Forget it.
Jan took his laptop and treid to find some music on Youtube. Okay with that till he downloaded a couple of video's. He couldnn;t find them back on his computer. So dear Kyra came over and looked around a bit in his files and hoorray I found them. On a very reasonable place, a file named "videos"hahahaha.
Back to the couch, but after a couple of minutes he had some trouble again.
Without making it a looong story,  all together I spent about 1 1/2 hour with him, trying to find some things he wanted, finding the easiest way to get them in a file etc. etc. And it is normally not too difficult, but sometimes Windows 8 is acting a bit different from Vista and windows 7, so it is searching for me too.
At the end I was glad I could help, but doing so I got( I am honest here) sometimes very unpatient. I am NOT a good teacher in computer stuff, the more while I too don;t know too much about it. Okay, I can use my programs, but something different, that also needs a whee bit of technical knowledge is not for me.
But we will work it out, as long as he doesn;t ruin my "relax evenings"too often, hahahaha.

I must go out today I think, because I want to have a haircut, so I'll pop in the salon and make an appointment. Want to look as nice as possible when we will have our interview with social security next week. And my hair has grown too long by now too, so after a cut I will feel better, I think.
Last Wednesday afternoon I went to the market. it was rather nice weather, and I found us some fruit and veggies and of course cheese. yes, cheese is something we eat a lot, most of the time just on a sandwich but in the evening also at times in little cubes, or some slices, just because you have taste for something but not sure of what. And then cheese is a good option, grin!

Brodski found a new place to have a nap, it is again on the window seal. I always wonder, why cats always change after a while their spots.
But one thing stays the same. when I do the washing up in the kitchen after dinner he waits for me.
The when I am ready and enter the room with my mug of coffee he is sitting in the middle of the room, just waiting for me to sit in the chair(Jan is usually occupying the couch then for a little nap) and when I am just about installed he jumps on my lap, turns around 2 or 3 times and to find a comfortable position for a nap.

I have today just a little freebie for you( I am working on a new kit, may be I can finish it in the weekend), made a quickpage with the Romantic at Heart kit for you, and hope you can use it.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Good morning Kyra. Oh gosh, I know what you mean. I can get so terribly short tempered while trying to teach someone complicated things on the computer. Now I just tell folks to call Wayne. I do not know enough about it to be a teacher. When the operating systems and programs get changed I have a hard enough time trying to teach myself how to navigate around the computer.

We are having a preview of Winter weather today. It's cold, and it snowed and rained a bit during the night. Tonight will be even colder. Only in the 20's F. Brrr.

I will stay in today and crochet. Here's hoping that you can still enjoy some nice Fall weather. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Hello and Thank you for this lovely download.
It sounds like you have been having a big learning experience with Windows 8 while trying to help Jan also learn (I know it can be frustrating but I'm sure Jan appreciates your help. Hopefully soon he will be able to do things himself and you will be able to watch your shows).
I hope you both have a fantastic weekend...

Yikes, makes me more determined to NOT get Windows 8; this old laptop is Windows 7 and my ancient desktop is still in XP which I still keep reverting to because it has over a thousand of my poems/cards stored on it and haven't figured out how to convert them to the Microsoft Publisher for Windows 7. At age 75 it is too late to start learning all over again. That's why I enjoy so very much you talented people who let me use the beautiful pages you create. Makes doing scrapbooks and putting poems or Bible verses on them for sending to those out sick from our church so very easy. Again, my many thanks. Blessings, dotty
