I was actually so lazy yesterday that I thought I would have trouble sleeping. I convinced my workaholic self to take it easy.

I did some work as always but I watched a whole movie instead of just part of it. It was The Bad Seed, a 1956 film about an eight year old that killed a boy at a picnic without any remorse.

I loved the introduction of the actors at the end of the film. The actor that played the mother was the last one introduced and she finished by going to the little girl, putting her over her lap and spanking her repeatedly. That certainly was an unusual way to end the film. Love movies!

I am so pleased that Cloud Swirl over The Peaks of Otter has been sold to a great Northern Virginia patron. His wife is from Forest, VA and he bought my painting for an anniversary gift.

I have sold many Wall Art Prints and Prints on other items of this beautiful sight in the Blue Ridge. As I have said many times I love living in the mountains of Southwest Virginia which is very near The Blue Ridge Parkway.

If you have never been to The Peaks of Otter, be sure to visit some time. We have been there many times and one time we walked down from the top of Sharp Top.

I have painted many beautiful scenes of gorgeous Pawleys Island in South Carolina.

The hurricane caused a tremendous amount of damage and one of the piers was taken out and is floating somewhere in the Atlantic.

One of my favorite Pawleys Island paintings was of one of the piers. I had that one professionally framed and it was sold to a New Jersey patron. I don’t know if that is the pier that was torn loose.

I hope the people there will be all right and the damage taken care of. The residents say that compared to Florida they received a pass.

We don’t have a lot of guests but we will have two today. Clyde has invited some naturalists to help advise us on the best plants for our property that will be good for the environment and pollinators.

I am kind of surprised that Clyde is seeking advice. I thought he knew all that stuff but I guess he is getting expert advice in case his plans are not the best.

Anyway, looking forward to hearing what they have to say.

I think we would all be better off if we got away from the pesticide ridden lawns and plant native trees and flowers. I hope that approach catches on.

Native flowers are gorgeous!

In an effort to compete with Tik Tok a lot of youtubers are making very short videos on their phones. I keep saying I am going to do that so maybe today is the day.

I always put out a short video on Thursdays but I use my camera and they are about two minutes long. Should be interesting to film one with my phone that is ten seconds long.

Hope I don’t mess it up. As I said to a friend on WordPress, I liked it better when phones weren’t little computers.

Maybe today I will change my mind.

I needed to print out a sales receipt and a certificate of authenticity this morning and couldn’t understand why I could turn on the printer but it wouldn’t print.

I can’t believe I didn’t realize it wasn’t connected to the old computer. What a duh moment.

Oh well. It is hooked up now and the forms are printed out. Time to pack up the painting.

Cheers on a pretty cold day.

We never pay attention to medical ads on TV. This morning there was one promoting a medicine that could be useful to my husband so I had to tease him.

But Clyde it has a money back guarantee! You can try it for thirty days risk free! Not sure but I think there was cussing in the nearby bathroom. LOL!

Cheers on a beautiful Tuesday. I have to get busy and build a crate for a painting I will be shipping out tomorrow. I never put these sales in a blog until the patron has it and is pleased.

No one has ever returned one but if they did after I said it was sold then I don’t think I could list it again. That would be a problem.

We now have the old computer in front of the new computer which is so much better. I was doing Yoga straddles on the floor to work on the old one since we didn’t have a high place to put it.

I tried sitting in a chair and leaning down but that was very uncomfortable. The straddle seemed to be the best position. Needless to say I didn’t do much on my computer yesterday.

Oh well. October 7th will be here before I know it and I can get a new Apple ID. Computers certainly do own us.

Another computer argh. Apple will not notify me that I can get a new pass word until October 7th. October 7th!

Still working on the old one on the floor and I am not happy.

Going to do the minimum computer work and this evening we will get help and put the old one where the new one is.

Still waiting to get on our new computer because my carefully composed list of passwords has a wrong one.

Argh! I must have updated my Apple one and forgot to change it on my list so we have to wait 24 hours to put in a new one.

I am using the old one of the floor and this is so uncomfortable. Ending this here and hope everyone has a better computer day than me.
