Yesterday was kind of a low-key day...I met friends for lunch, went to work for a while--still counting the hours until my Wednesday through Sunday stretch of time off--and came home to a very quiet house. It was a nice, mellow day to celebrate my birthday. Now it's time to rev up and get ready for the Thanksgiving holiday only a week away. I think I finally have all of my Halloween items put away, but you never know...there could be something tucked away that I won't find until it's time to put out the Santas and snowmen!
I put my desktop computer away several months ago...I stopped using it when I got a laptop so I didn't see the need to have it take up space in the corner of the diningroom. Well...I decided I really needed to get the scanner out. I used to scan magazine articles and the like, and I do miss the functionality of that. It would also be nice to scan a really cute little ornament-studded Christmas tree I want to attempt to make...it's featured in Country Living Handmade Christmas. So cute and it would really look great on the mantle. I'm just having a little problem locating the cords/wires needed to connect it to my laptop. "Treasure Hunting"...here I come!
