The GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY

The GOOD and must say surprising thing that happened this week is that two ladies from Canada have ordered the Domestic Zoo pattern
Stranger yet is they don't even know each other.  I was sure that since the first gal said she was attending a camp in September had passed on her pattern intentions to a friend or someone else in the class who decided to order it also.  Nope; they don't know one another and each just liked the design so ordered it.  Also GOOD thing I had two patterns already drawn of this big guy.

The BAD is that my Windows Outlook 2013 e-mail program just stopped working on my Windows 7 program today.  Unlike Lauren it has nothing to do with my server but with Windows.  I have spent hours trying to read about and fix it myself.  I've done the Windows HELP thing and tried their recommendations on fixing this problem.  Thank God I've my iPad because on my PC I've lost my contacts, can't receive mail nor can I send e-mail.  Lauren, I feel your pain!!

The UGLY is my attitude at not only the windows program I purchased and worked not quite 2 months, my ugly attitude at myself for being such a computer illiterate, okay, let's add the words angry and frustrated. 

So I finally gave up tonight trying to fix it or keep in touch with the Windows help because I knew my blood pressure would end in a boiling point so stopped. 

Instead I've started a pot of soup as it is damp and dreary outside.  So my rest of evening plans are now to go sit and hook for a bit until Ben needs his walk.

Have a great evening everyone.



  1. That is why I use macs, windows confuse me, lol.
    I like to use computers, not try to figure out how to fix problems;)


  2. Some days if it weren't for bad luck we'd have no luck at all. My problem is still not resolved. I just hate the thought of calling and getting nowhere. Good luck to you!
    Happy hooking :)
