I’m in “one of my moods”. Melancholy is the word that comes to mind. Going to have to snap out of it. It isn’t healthy. Right?
This is where I spend much of my time these days. I’m in the middle of a massive project of scanning centuries of photo albums – my family’s, his family’s, and ours. Yesterday was spent trying to figure out why the scanner is no longer working correctly. It scans but the file is never there after the scan. I’ve downloaded driver patches and new drivers. I’ve plugged and unplugged everything – over and over. The laptop is worn out from rebooting. This morning I un-installed the drivers and am installing them again. Desperation I tell you!
See that music stand against the window? Yea, I’m still trying to teach myself how to play the mandolin. Hopeless I tell you!The only sane thing on that table is the snowman coffee cup. It knows no season. As the days grow hotter, the cup reminds me that “this too shall change.” It sure keeps my honey-sweetened tea hot.
Mom and dad gave me this clematis for my birthday eight years ago.
Isn’t it beautiful?
The only thing is – it’s trying to die on me. I can’t let that happen. Once it quits blooming, can I safely prune the dead away? Do I wait until fall? Google time. Tips anyone?
