I think I forgot to mention that I went thrift shopping while in
Whitehorse. The only 'good' place to go is the Salvation Army
store. And using the word 'good' is really relative to the fact
that the three other re-sale shops are mostly clothing! But I'm
not complaining, I came away with several hard back books
for only$.20 and this retro tablecloth. I love the red and blues in it!
And this pineapple crocheted tablecloth was just $4.50. I can't even imagine
the hours that were spent hooking this one. It is nearly as large as a full-sized
I'm not really sure what use I'll have for this floral
napkin, but for a quarter I'll find some way to repurpose it.
And there was no way I was passing up this retro fabric either.
Don't you think it will look nice with the old sheets I'm collecting to make
patchwork curtains for my g'daughter's bedroom? I left them all
at home, of course. So it's going to have to be a winter project for
This is my choice for my next crocheting challenge. I haven't
started on it because my boss isn't keeping the wi-fi turned on
everyday. And, of course the pattern was on-line. I've since
uploaded it to documents.
I've had to ask him twice to flip it on so I could call
Eli on his birthday and so I could order Mother's Day gifts.
Besides that, if a computer had a picture tube, I would say mine
is going on my lap-top. After I've used it for a while it starts getting
broad, black lines moving over the screen and then eventually the
whole screen fades out. Has anyone ever experienced this before?
Do you know if it's fixable? It may be cheaper to buy a new one than
to get this one repaired, I'm thinking. If any of you have any advice
I'd so.... appreciate it! You know I'd never survive out here in the
wilderness without a connection to my family and friends!
Still keeping my head above water!
