Not-so-productive Day...

Yesterday I sewed four of my 4-block units together - now I have a 16-block unit. I also made another   4-block unit. And this, peeps, is about the only thing tangible I accomplished all day!

I sat down a my dining room table with loads of paper work. I sorted it into piles. I made a list of exactly what I needed to accomplish. At the top of the list - load Quick Books on my computer. So I followed the instructions. Mission Accomplished!

By now, I'm in the groove and lit a candle to continue this ZEN mood...Vanilla Snowflake...ahhh....

So now I try to open Quick Books on my computer. NO, it said! You have to upgrade your Operating System first! Okay, I can do this. I started that process and this is what my computer said...

22 minutes it will take. Okay. So what will I do for 22 minutes? I unloaded the dishwasher, put a load of clothes in the washing machine, removed my nail polish. I checked back on the computer - 21 minutes remaining. WHAT? So I went upstairs and sewed together that 16-block unit above. By this time I could move the clothes over to the dryer. And then I picked up the living room.

Finally, the computer was done. But now iPhoto was not working. It said, you need to upgrade this to work with the new operating system. Okay. I can do this.

So I need to get on the Internet to download the latest iPhoto version. No, it said! In order to log in to the Internet, you need your wireless password. I don't know what it is. Hubby keeps up with all this stuff. So I texted him at work. No answer. My hands are tied.

By now the clothes in the dryer are done. So I fold them and put them away. Still no text from hubby. By now it is about 4 pm. I've spent the entire day dealing with computer stuff.

Finally, hubby calls with the password. I successfully update iPhoto. So now you know what I'll be doing today - all that paperwork! At least the laundry is done. :)


  1. Well it sounds like you really did get plenty done, just not what you wanted to get done. Technology is a good news, bad news kind of thing. ;)

  2. Beautiful colors in the quilt.

    FYI - there's a HST that needs to flipped (3rd row down, 4th column from the right)

  3. I think those kind of days are God's way of slowing us down. :)
