How simple things become when one reads directions. “Add New Page” says it all. Thank you, WordPress.
As glorious Spring approaches, slowly, slowly–and than Bang!–bushes and trees begin to explode with color. The azaleas here in the South have already been hard at work. Thank you, God.
I’ve been nursing an injured knee and have been housebound for three weeks. Between the computer, TV and telephone, I’ve stayed comfortably connected to the outside world. It has actually been rather nice, other than pain from the knee. I go tomorrow to see my orthopedist. (“When can I drive, huh? When?”)
Now that the burden of typesetting the autobiography, as I emoted on at length in my last post, has been lifted, I feel like a new woman. All except the knee, that is. The poor book was an ongoing project of almost three years. The poor knee has been hurt since February 15, so the book was a heavier burden for me, or a longer one, for sure.
During these days of confinement, one of the things that kept me busy and my mind off knees and books was Facebook. I have enjoyed getting to know the machinations of the site and the fun of “meeting” new people, and getting reacquainted with old friends and family. A friend introduced to me the importance of using or :0) or :>) when typing anything that might be misconstrued as negative. (I chose the latter as my aka due to my extra-long probiscus).
The main negative on FB, in my opinion, is the bead-throwing/SweetestPersonOnFacebook/ad infinitumflowers-jewels-bears-you-name-it-they’ve-got-it stuff that comes in to be dealt with. “If I ignore this, will this person be hurt/mad?” SCREAM!
The most kind thing I can say about FaceBook is that it is a mostly fun way to waste an inordinate amount of time. Since FB has recently had to purge its members because some of them were sexual predators, (keep up the good watchdog work, guys), we should remember to be cautious about how much info we hand over to the world via FB.
That’s all for this time, blog/journal.
