Scattered Sunday Thoughts . . .

*We’re staying home from church this morning. Irene hit our part of PA sometime during the night; and, while it is raining, it’s the wind that’s keeping me at home.  I hate driving and feeling the wind blowing the car around.  Our van is having the tow-hitch installed this weekend, and the little Yaris just seems like the wind could pick it up and blow us all away!  LOL

*My laptop has been giving me fits for months.  I’ve been putting off having someone look at it because I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant. Well, I finally did it . . . I had our good friend look at it and he ended up wiping it clean.  (Thankfully, he did save all of my e-mails, My Documents, and My Pictures.)  Anyway, I’m pretty much starting from scratch – which is hard for those of us who tend to get set in our ways!  I’m giving Google Chrome a whirl this time around (I had tried it once before and wasn’t too impressed) – but, this time, I think I might grow to like it.  I figured out how to bookmark my favorites, and I like  the set-up.  So, we’ll see.  If you use Google Chrome, leave me a comment with your favorite features, please.

*I still want to hear about your matching Disney shirts!!!  We finally got brave and attempted the tie-dye Mickey head t-shirts this weekend.  We used the instructions found here, but we used dyes from Dharma Trading. While the original instructions say to let the shirts in the dye for 3-4 days, the Dharma Trading instructions say 24 hours.  So, we’ll see how long my patience can hold out! 

*While on a Disney shirt kick, I’ve also decided to attempt some applique. We got the shirts and fabric last night; so I might start cutting and ironing today – we’ll see.  I need to get the shirts washed and dried first.

*After my “down day” the other day, I’m feeling much better.  It’s nice to realize that, even when you’re feeling down, you have some friends who will stand by you and support you.  I appreciate all of the sweet and encouraging comments that I received.  You guys are great!

So what sort of scattered thoughts are going on in your head?
Please share!

We use Chrome because IE seemed to run terribly. I wasn't sure if it was because of our antivirus software or what, but it was frustrating. Chrome is nice and we have few problems with it. I don't know if I have a fav feature, I'm just glad it works, lol.

And my scattered thoughts: I have got to get focused on my blog, and my house, and our curriculum....oh so many :/

Have a great day. I'm glad you are safe.

Miranda swears by Chrome, it's the only browser she will use. I loved it until it gave me fits while trying to load the Crew forum pages. Maybe I'll give it a try again. Hope you like it! I'm sorry you were having a down day. Sending you hugs and love from the other side of the river. :) Miss you friend, we need to get together again after we get settled in our house!
