Monthly Archives: January 2012


It’s been really bad weather in the Gorge. I am so glad that I have been able to work from home. I’ve been working from home for almost two months now. It gives me so much free time at home. It helps the folks at work too. I was able to cover for someone that was out sick on Saturday.

I picked up a new to me computer from FreeGeeks. It’s a Mac G5. I’ve installed Ubuntu on it. The only downside is that my nice studio display only has a 1024 resolution. It doesn’t work as well for me as a higher resolution would. I’ve been using that Thinkpad a long time now. It’s nice to have a backup computer.


Happy 2012!

Well here we are, in a brand new year. The holidays here were pretty low key. We gave inexpensive gifts. I gave Lon a low crowned top hat. He’s gotten compliments on it. I have a nice carnelian ring. We went to the company Christmas party, to Tacoma to see Lon’s sister and the grandson. We had a quiet Christmas at home and stayed up to see in the New Year.

I’m sorting out the things I’d like to take with me into this year and the things I want to leave behind. There are some new things I’d like to do. I can’t do those new things if the old stuff is cluttering up my life.
