This and that...

Monday, October 07, 2019

I feel like I've had a force field around me for the last week or so. I have been having so many issues with electronic things. My force field is causing my computer at work, cell phone, tv, laptop, bank cards to malfunction or to not work at all. Frustrating standing at the cash at Walmart, put the card in to pay for my things, only to get a "chip error" message on the debit machine. I was lucky that my friend paid for my things. We went to the bank immediately after, and I had no trouble withdrawing the money from the bank's machine. ARGH.

Watched the Canadian leaders' debate (elections here are on October 21), and was not impressed with anything any of them said. Still have no idea who to vote for. But I do know who I am not going to vote for.

Have to do some baking for a bake sale and auction that's taking place on Thursday. Made some nougat tonight, will make Bailey's brownies tomorrow, and on Wednesday night I'll make a pumpkin spice bundt cake with cream cheese filling and a salted caramel drizzle.

This weekend I'll get back to work on getting the basement organized so I can start working on crafts. I've decided I'm going to try working with polymer clay. (I tidied up my work space last week!)

Finally managed to drop by the nearby hotel where i can get a membership for the pool. The membership includes use of the small but well equipped gym. Talked to the life guard that was on duty, and was able to determine when the best time to go in would be, so I would have the pool to myself (nice!!). It's not a big pool, but it's big enough to do laps in. I think I will get a one month membership to start, just to make sure that there won't be any issues with my sore knee.

I guess that's it for now.

Have a great day!

    I have lots of trouble with my electronics. We had to rescan our tv a month ago and still have trouble watching and taping shows. Our internet is in and out. In the mornings and evenings and weekends are the worse. I have a new credit card with an advance chip and I have to keep taking it out and putting it back in. At the gas pump, one day had to go to 3 pumps before It would read the chip. Now when I go and get labs done at the hospital I have to electronically check-in and have to scan insurance cards and driver's license if it will not scan it starts all over again. Now at one of the doctor's office you use a computer to check-in and can only put in one problem you are having that day. Then when they take you back to the exam room you have to put your code into the computer. My brother and me have noticed that they do not have as many old people there anymore and have a lot of younger patients and children.

    Whoa, sorry about the electronic mess. Itโ€™s weird how that seems to happen in multiple areas. Truly is like a negative force field that youโ€™re carrying around with you.
    I wish I could get to that bake sale, sounds delicious.

    Sorry your force field is wrecking havoc. Keep your head up, you will get all you need to get done at the right time.
