Wholly Cow, can computer problems ruin things in a hurry! I think the power supply went out on my PC back in October...tried to no avail to find a replacement for it, but did not find one (I think it is too old)! Thankfully, most of my computer was backed up to DVD's/passports! I finally resorted to an older computer I happened to still have around....man is it ever slow (Windows Vista) and so many of my programs will not work on it...but....I do have a computer to work my scrapbook program with! Trying to locate what I just HAVE to have and transferring, etc has taken forever it seems! I haven't done a lot of anything else, what with visitors, the holidays, packing boxes, getting the outside of my home winterized, all the outside furbabies taken care of for the cold....etc....etc...etc! Lots of work for one "old lady" by herself! LOL! (come on, let me hear the pity comments)!!
I've also had to chase down a heating element for my clothes dryer, then wait until my repairman FELT like tackling it...(without a dryer for almost 2 months)....thankfully, it is working like a charm now. My car also decided to give me a few minor problems (mostly because I don't drive it enough to keep the battery charged, after all it takes me about 6 weeks to use a tank of gas...LOL)
Thanksgiving was pretty lame this year! I went nowhere nor saw anyone until around 5 p.m. when my friends, Janet,Patty and Diana stopped by for about 30 minutes. Not even any phone calls, so I stayed in pajamas and me and the fur babies vegged out on the couch to watch the parade and CHRISTmas movies on the Hallmark Channel!
Unfortunately, I do not have word on this computer and thus, it will not read.doc files, so....I have to reconstruct my renters lease agreement (due Jan 1 for another year), plus getting all my financial stuff completed and properly documented...(taxes, insurance, new lease, repairs, etc)....I've been pretty busy and trying new meds for cholesterol has had me doing lots of phone calls and office visits with my physician and of course, taking it slow when "Arthritis" visits my hands...I have also been collecting things for a couple of months for packages that need to be mailed for CHRISTmas...(gonna be rather slim this year as I did not have that extra side job) But, I am a very blessed human as I am fairly healthy, have a loving family, good friends, not in debt over my head and can pay my own way!
I am trying today to add what few pages I have done since my September post so that they will appear in my blog book, this may take a while to upload them on this slower computer...I have asked Santa to help me find a good deal on a new computer! I do have my very trusty iPad Pro, but....I can't use it for my scrapbooks. To those of you that I have missed visiting your blogs....please forgive me for being so slooooooow, but sometimes things are not in my control!

I have a few more, but they are CHRISTmas gifts, so they will have to be posted later, cause I don't want to ruin the surprise...ROFLMBO!
I am wishing all of you a very happy and prosperous 2018 and the Merriest of CHRISTmases spent with loved ones making lots of memories to look back on. Until next time....
Love to all,
