OMG…I’m back!

You read that right…I am back, you guys!  My dad surprised me with a new tablet this afternoon…okay, actually not just any tablet…but an iPad!  I absolutely love the clarity of the screen on this, and it is just gorgeous.  He even had my name and the message “A great daughter” printed on it.  It also came with a card saying “Thank you for all you do.  Love Mom and Dad.”  (Believe me, being a homemaker is not an easy job…it actually takes a lot of effort to keep a household running smoothly and to keep my mother happy, among many other things.). I thanked him many times over, even though I did not ask for it, or for anything.  My dad is just the kind to randomly surprise his loved ones like that.  (Side note, he’s even been known to do this for my soon-to-be sister in law.  It involved a leaf blower and a kiddie pool for my niece.).  It’s just beautiful, and I have a feeling this is gonna be the beginning of a beautiful partnership.  I even tested out the camera on it on my dog, and it is just a thing of beauty.


Of course, my dog is a thing of beauty as well.

I know you’re probably wondering what’s been going on since I had to leave so suddenly, and I hope to write about those in the coming days, but you can understand me wanting to reconnect to the interwebs after about a month away, right?  Here’s a teaser of what I will be writing about in the coming days:

  • Knitting (duh…and I’ve been doing a bit of it!)
  • Crocheting (my first crochet project in quite a while, even though it was a small, quick project.)
  • And since some of you did express your concerns in the comments, I will be writing about my experience living through Hurricane Irma.  As you can see by my post, I am doing fine and am safe and sound, as are my family and my brother and his family.  Anyone who lived through the Three Hurricanes of 2004 that hit Florida in a span of six weeks will understand my experience (and yes, I lived through Those Three Hurricanes as well).

For now…I’m gonna be fiddling around with this new thing!

    • Glad to be part of the Apple club! 🍏. (Really, an apple emoji but not an Apple logo emoji?!?! What gives? Oh wait, here’s an iPhone emoji…📱). This is actually not my first Apple device. I have an iPod Shuffle that’s over a decade old that still works, and I do listen to it from time to time. It’s one of the old “chewing gum” shaped models. Dad has an iPhone and has had one for several years now, although he has not made the switch from PC to Mac for his computing.

      My dog looks like a brute, but she’s all girl, and a pretty one at that.

  1. I am so thankful you are back with us! Oddly, I don’t like to use my ipad much for posts. I much prefer the laptop. I’m too old school and need the keyboard tool, but am too cheap to bother! Have fun with your wonderful new toy! It really does almost everything–it needs to learn to do real time house windows, though.
