What I Did This Weekend

Miss Marple 2

Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!


Ah the weekend, when I plan to get all kinds of work done and enjoy the springtime! Saturday did prove to be a good working day for me. I got the curtains washed and rehung, the vacuuming done and the dusting done too. Do you know that the stones on the outside of my fireplace were dusty? I felt pretty good with what I’d accomplished.

Hubby was watching the March Madness Basketball (yuck) and I  sat down to write my entry for Dackel Princess. Once I finished I was cruising through my computer and saw “Solitaire”. Hmmmm. I turned on the game and got started.

Has anyone ever told you that this game is addicting?

Now, I have never been a gamer, but I definitely enjoyed playing Solitaire!

On Sunday everything was going well until about 9:30 in the morning when I went to check my email. Nothing! Then I got error messages and then more nothing! This was a really serious, not good!!!

Panic! And a rather sick feeling in my stomach.

It took me most of the day to go in through the back door (main files on my hard drive) and download the documents to back them up. I was able to get a hold of my address books, and then, since I was already backing things up, I decided to keep my inbox cleaner and more organized.

First I removed my email program from the hard drive. Then I went back and used an older version of the program. You see, about 3 months ago I had gotten a notice to upgrade to the new and improved program! Ha! So that new program is now off my computer, and the old reliable one is back on!

I am so glad I saved the downloaded program!

It did take me most of the afternoon to get everything set up again, but it is up and running now and I am relieved. I think for this evening I might just sit down and relax and play a few more rounds of Solitaire!

  1. I think I am finished with the spring cleaning ! The only game I love to play on my computer is “Majong” and especially in the airplane then time is going by so fast.
    I never had troubles with my emails. I use gmail and it works very well. I started with a local thing here, but my box was quickly full and it was very complicated to check my mail when I was abroad. Now it’s very easy.

  2. My new addictions are words with friends and angry birds on my ipad : ) So glad you were able to save your docs!! Have a nice week!

  3. Left Friday afternoon for a “quilt retreat” at Dayspring and returned Sunday afternoon relaxed, refreshed with three smaller item tops completed. Came to town, went to check on Mom and called EMS – breathing problems again. So – home by 8PM, bed by 10. Calbe came in an woke me promptly at 0630 today and now the week begins. That was myh weekend. Loved the description of your last cruise and SO GLAD you have your vision. Will call soon,.

  4. Cleaning time around here today. Making Frosting for two birthday cakes. I’ll be busy this week! Love YOU, Mel
