So not tech savvy – I’ve been trying to take videos of my cats. Cats are not like dogs. They do incredibly cute things until you pick up a camera. Then nada. The past week I got one of Morgan. It was 40 seconds of absolutely nothing and 10 seconds of action (Beggars can’t be choosers!) I uploaded to YouTube and worked on editing. Taking the video took a minute. Editing took over an hour (because of my skill level). Somehow I didn’t make it public so when posted it wasn’t accessible. Fortunately the blogging community let me know early so I was able to fix it. Don’t ask me for YouTube advice!
It’s Christmas! – I take advantage of the Black Friday-Cyber Monday deals to order on-line. Many retailers have great offers with free shipping. These aren’t gifts. They are things I normally buy. Friday the UPS guy could have used a cart to deliver my treasures. It was like Christmas (if you count scented plug-ins, socks, slippers, and that sort of thing as treasures).
Speaking of shopping – Two years ago I bought a pair of “knit jeans” from LL Bean. I love them. Just like pajamas. They didn’t look “granny style” (no elastic waist but good stretch) and didn’t bag at the knees. They are the kind of jeans you would wear when you go out for an Italian feast. Last week I ordered a second pair. Yikes! They “tailored” the fit to the point that I need a shoehorn to zip them up (no, I didn’t gain weight). If you are looking for comfortable jeans, why would you want them tailored tight? Why fix it when it’s not broken?
Old school – We had dinner with friends. They are contemporaries. We got into a conversation about cell phones. The beloved husband has an old (really old) flip phone that works for him just fine. I have a plain smart phone (not real smart or maybe that’s the owner). Our friends joked about using their phone all the time. They text each other when they are in the house. I don’t even have mine on me in the house. Maybe our house isn’t big enough or my voice works just fine! I would prefer to implant a GPS thingy in the beloved husband so I can track him but not necessarily to talk to him.
Loss – It was another week of pet losses. Earlier this year I found Easy, a Weimaraner dog who blogs here. He was a silly, goofy, fun dog with great stories especially of “the mama” and the family DIY projects. He passed this week unexpectedly. I will miss him. Later in the week a dear friend lost her beloved cat, also unexpectedly. I’ve been hugging my cats so much they hide when they see me. Fur kisses are soothing. Hugs to my friends for their loss.
So how was your week?
