It was a week of learning here – This week I realized I don’t have to be nice to Alexa. She filters out all the “nice” stuff like “what is” or “where is” so why bother. She (it?) focuses on the action word. Now I can bark at her. Alexa, temperature! By the end of this pandemic, I may lose all my social skills. I wonder if I can change her voice to have an accent. Hmmmm….
Speaking of learning – I have a strange relationship with Microsoft. It forces me to use their browser. My old computer did not do that. It opens in their browser despite setting another browser as default. I turned to my good friend google for advice. I found a secret spot with file defaults and all had Microsoft as the default. I had a good time turning that around!
Always a worry – Gracie’s visit to the vet and subsequent medication hasn’t solved anything. She still barfs a lot and today had some blood in it. Sometimes it’s a hair ball or food but sometimes it’s just spittle. Another dilemma. She doesn’t act sick at all. In fact, she has been more playful this past month.
Things to love – I love my new range. Sometimes appliances live up to the hype and sometimes they don’t. This one does and it wasn’t top of line either. I should make biscuits. In our family the biscuits are always burned. It’s a tradition. Make the gravy and forget the biscuits are in the oven.
And then it’s gone – As much as I looked forward to the winter Olympics, I’m glad to see them end. The locale was interesting at first as it wasn’t typical snow-covered mountains but everything looked so sterile. At what point does an Olympian retire? Do they wait until they don’t score a medal or go out on top in a year they do? Congrats to all who won and those who worked so hard and didn’t win.
So how was your week?
