Another of my all-too-common drive-by posts for you. Just so you don’t forget all about me. All is not hunky-dory in Damselfly’s Pond these days. For starters, the Evil Cold From Heck jump back on me with a vengeance just as I was starting to feel a little better. I barely made it through my dental cleaning yesterday without choking and coughing all over poor Viktoria, my lovely hygienist. I couldn’t afford to postpone the appointment and I figured since she was wearing a mask and gloves and of course autoclaves all her tools that I wouldn’t be passing anything on. Hopefully. Today I’m back in a vegetative state and contemplating how to accomplish a load of laundry just to have some fresh hankies. Again.
Next we have a short technical rant. Boredom warning. You might want to skip ahead. I’ve mentioned before that I like to use Evernote for clothing inspiration clips and to keep track of my future sewing plans. I had some trouble with the last update which seemed to have been solved by reverting back to the next-to-last software version. Unfortunately, yesterday after I spent several hours updating my notes on the Big Desktop Computer the stupid thing now won’t sync to the web for some reason. I keep getting error messages. I’ve done some research on the forums and there are a few things I can do to try to fix it before contacting tech support but I don’t have the patience or the brainpower right now to bother. (Zombie cold-bugs ate my brains!) I so hate it when things that worked just fine for ages suddenly decide to go bad on me. Bleh. Just when I was starting to get a little bit organised.
And, as if I wasn’t feeling sorry enough for myself, I just found out this morning that a dear friend has succumbed to the cancer that she was fighting for the last few years. She was the sweetest person ever and a year younger than I am. So that’s two people I’ve known for 25 years gone in just a month from the same disease. Cancer sucks. It’s just not fair at all. Yeah, I know. Who said life was fair?
The sun is finally out today after days and days of deep dark sogginess. It’s a little crisp but not too cold. Normally I would be leaping for the door to get out for a long walk. Not happening. Will Damselfly ever get her wings back? Stay tuned. And pass me a clean hanky, please.
