Just another day

Got my new computer today. It’s really cool! It is one of those tablet things with, the pen and touchpad. I can write or the screen. And it translates it to type. I’ll probably be playing for days to figure out all the bells and whistles! It also has Office 2007. That’s new to me. Again, really cool! I’m using OneNote to do this post, not sure what it’s all about, but I’m going to try to figure it out.

I missed work today. Spent most of the day laying on the couch with a horrible headache. Seems like a sinus headache, but it sure lasted a long time, even after Ibuprofen.

Birdboy was a brat today, turned over a Coke and a Gingerale. After the second spill, he decided he would rather be alone and stayed away from me for the rest of the day!

I didn’t purchase a case with the computer, so I’ve also been making a case. I’m using 3 strands of yarn and making a portfolio type case. When done, I’ll post pics. The pattern so far is: chain 44, then double crochet back and forth until it’s as long as the opened computer. After I get it as long as I want, I’m going to put handles on it and straps across to slide the computer under and hold it in place. I’ve also been making dishcloths. I’ve used walmart bags to crochet the center, then 100% cotton yarn to complete. The walmart bag is used as a built-in scrubby. I’ll post a picture of it and my laptop case when done.
