I Should Not Have Planted Flowers

I thought that it would be a good thing for me to be a little more proactive this year when it came to my yard.  The last couple of years I really have been fighting an uphill battle as I don’t get around to planting flowers and the garden until the last minute.  So this year, I decided that I would plant things early instead, and so that is exactly what I did.

I should have known that something was wrong when I was at the store buying plants.  Every sales clerk was looking at me a little funny, but I thought nothing of it.  I was just going against the grain and doing something different.  I thought of myself as a leader, not a follower.

So I planted everything earlier this week when it was warm out.  The ground was a bit cold, but I thought that would pass as the sun would warm up the dirt.

Fast forward to today.

I really made a mistake.  The weather has been cold (below the freezing point) and my flowers are all dead.  I really wish I had waited instead of wasting a few hundred dollars buying plants that were just going to die anyway.

Lesson learned.  This will never happen again.

Lost my Car Keys

There is nothing more frustrating than when you can’t find something, and I find myself in that predicament here today.  I was supposed to go to a doctor’s appointment this afternoon with my best friend, but somehow I have managed to misplace my car keys.

I really hope that I can retrace my steps and figure out what I did with my keys – it will cost too much to replace the ignition.

Dreaming of Spring

It seems like winter has gone on for way too long, and I am really getting antsy.  While I don’t much care for yard work, the thought of enduring any more days of this cold and dreary weather doesn’t really appeal to me.

So, I have been looking for ways to pass the time indoors, but I have been really struggling.  Needless to say, I am hoping that spring comes our way very soon – winter has gone on long enough.

Figuring Out Hotmail

I am by no means a tech expert, but sometimes I really struggle with trying to figure things out on the computer.  I hate to admit it, but computers are not my strong point by any means, so I depend on my friends or the Internet to help me out.

Today I was struggling to figure out how to add an attachment to my email.  I know that since they changed the interface, I’ve really had some issues figuring things out.

Thankfully, I found a video on Youtube that helped me out, and I’ll share it with you below:

Changing Back to Blogging

After many years of this site being a social bookmarking site, I have decided on a change of direction.  So, starting today, we will be a blogging site, full of information that is useful to you, the reader, and we’ll make every effort to add value to your life.

What does this mean for those of you who had social bookmarks on this site?  Sadly, this means that they will no longer exist.  I know that it will be a sigh of relief for some of you and sad for others.  The truth of the matter is that it is time for a change.

I really think that this is a positive move.  I hope you like the format of the blog.
