That's what our Internet is like now. We got hooked up to a local company Zing Networks on Wednesday. So now we don't have to deal with the dratted Bell 3G stick anymore!!
It's working a charm, and it's so nice that both me and dh can use our computers at the same time. I have just uploaded a photo and it's after 6pm. That would have been impossible to do with the Bell stick.
The photo I uploaded was of another Dove in the Window block I made on Wednesday afternoon.
Have you ever had a day when you are sewing and you spend most of the time just pulling out the stitches as you are not happy with it? Well that's what happened with me on Wednesday. Still I continued on with it, and I managed to get it finished. It's in pink and cream. I think I will do the sashing's in two shades of green, not sure yet.
On Tuesday when I went shopping I called in at Hallmark Cards, as I wanted to pick up this years Son and Daughter Christmas ornaments. I have bought one each for the kids each year for a number of years now. Anyhow I searched high and low on the stand, but couldn't see the Son and Daughter ornaments. Didn't see a Mother or Father one either, did see grandson and granddaughter ones, expecting mother ones, but no Son or Daughter ones.
So I asked an assistant, who in turn couldn't find them, so she asked someone else, and that assistant said they have stopped making them. However they have brought out a Christmas ornament hanger with "Son" and "Daughter" on it, that you can use with one of their ornaments.
I thought that sucked, and it turns out I am not the only one disappointed with their decision not to continue making these ones. I think I will be emailing Hallmark to tell them I am not happy. Meanwhile I will have to go to Carlton Cards and buy one from there for the kids.
Also I forgot to mention yesterday, there was a pet store in the mall, and as I was walking by I saw the cute puppies in the window. So of course I stopped and had a peek. There must have been around a dozen puppies there, including an English Bulldog puppy which was going for $4,500, yes that's right FOUR THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. I double checked as I couldn't believe it. The "cheapest" dog was a little Yorkie and that was $1,300. I couldn't get over the prices of them, and when I asked an assistant if they sell a lot of puppies she said yes, unbelievable!!
Poor Molly wasn't well on Wednesday, she had a bad tummy and she vomited, not sure what's wrong with her. Will have to keep an eye on her.
