Last night I woke up every hour. The bad thing is, I woke up every hour. The good thing is I went back to sleep right after waking up.

Hubby is having more digestive problems so he had to get up four times. Of course, I did not wake up four times between 11:00 and 7:00. I woke up eight times.

Not sure what the problem is but the guest room is starting to look good until Clyde gets better.

He is going to check with the doctor today to see if still needs to be on iron pills.

Oh well. Always a lot to be thankful for.

Finally organized my huge collection of VHS and DVD movies. As I have said before my tastes are not typical so a lot of my VHS movies are not available to stream or in DVD format. Many of my DVD movies are also not available.

My collection is very important to me. I love all the arts and get so much out of good productions. I have read many books after seeing the movie version which is a great experience.

I always think the book is better but I still like the movie and movies can offer a lot to the viewer that a book can’t offer so it is a win win to see the movie and read the book.

Anyway, I don’t have to look for any now that they are all in order on a shelf and in a cabinet that has the VHS TV on top.

Now on to another chore.

Last night Clyde said something that cracked me up. I wish I had written it down.

I used to do that so I could put his quips in my blog but he isn’t coming up with as many as he used to come up with.

We were talking about that last night. He thinks it is because his mind has been on his slow recovery from surgery and now he is on iron which is messing up his digestive system.

Hopefully he will be off of that soon and get back to the jokes!

It is my camera

I was directed to the Canon site for help and discovered that my Power Shot has been retired. I guess that is why I can’t import anything into Photos.

I will get Clyde to see if he can figure something out before I admit defeat and buy a new camera. As I have said ad nauseam, I hate shopping.

I know a lot of people think a girl that does not like to shop is a freak of nature but I know a few other girls that don’t like it either.

Maybe we should form a club.

Please check out my latest Youtube short! Lot of attention for this one!

Again, it is not you


Natural Rhythm Original 40″ x 30″ oil painting $2480

As always I am having a computer problem. I found Photos on my new computer and I can drag photos there and it is all I need.

Yea! I don’t need to get anything else. It is just like Aperture which is no longer available. But, when I try to import photos from my camera they won’t import. Argh!

For the umpteenth time I mentioned to Clyde that it is always some dumb thing that holds me up.

His response was I know. It is right here in this chair.

Again, it is not you. When I wake up with a headache it is not you. Dumb things that hold me up on the computer are not you.

Back to computer aggravation.

Maybe my camera is shot.

Lots of great files of the New River

So behind in my paintings but I will get to the Claytor lake ones soon. Yesterday I got a lot of great files of the New River with fall colors that I want to turn into expressive paintings after the Claytor lake ones.

I need to order more paint from Utrecht. I mostly order their Gamblin oil paint which is very expensive and a better grade than Utrecht. On my last order I thought I included the blue I use a lot of and the other day I saw that I had not ordered it so have to get some more.

Some days I wish I had stayed in the traditional very thin to thick handling of paint. The paint lasts such a long time but now I am not happy unless I paint thin to very thick impasto layers.

The one in the Youtube at the bottom has a strong visible topography. I am very pleased with it.

Getting Hardboard Today!

I know getting hardboard at Lowes is not the sort of trip that is exciting to your average person but it is to me.

I have not painted a large painting for quite some time and am looking forward to getting some hardboard cut up and prepared for some ideas I have had in my head for some time now.

I prefer hardboard to canvas. My first painting teacher thought it was an excellent surface and I agree.

Anyway, to the Lowe’s store!

Met a great neighbor yesterday! She is working to support her candidate for the Virginia House and we had a nice talk.

We have only been here a little over a year and she has been here for three years.

She is also an artist so we had a great chat about politics and art.

Always great to make new friends!

Two days ago I asked someone about a problem I was having with Youtube. He sent me a long paragraph that utterly confused me. Among other things, I am uploading shorts right now but I can’t seem to change the one below. I keep getting the URL is wrong message.

Do we all have to have a degree in Computer Science to handle computer issues? I am not going back to school so I guess I will keep on trying to figure out things with Google and Youtube.

I now have permission from Apple to change my password so we can switch out computers. I hope that goes smoothly.

Cheers on a Technology Aggravation Day. I know I am not the only one that has these problems.
