Computer Problems Continue

New Sim card arrives tomorrow
New computer in a week with wi-fi instead of air card - hopefully works.

Yesterday viewed my pine tree planted 5 years ago
noticed pine cones at the top :)
Who else but this One Woman would take pleasure in viewing these pine cones :)

Early morning, 60 degrees and mist in the air
Addition to daily diet with
Almond milk, banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter,
doing all I  know to maintain weight.

On the vine, the first,
so far not a tomato this year...
Just checking in...

Love that misty photo. I check pine cones, too. I've heard that bountiful cones means a hard winter - just a superstition, I think! You'll soon have some juicy, red tomatoes on the table.

Judy said...

What a pretty, lacy kind of pine tree.
Tomatoes not doing well in this area either.
It has been a strange summer, so far.

I stare at pine cones all the time and I love how they fall on the ground and make babies.

Love your trip down memory lane and would love to hear about Detroit some time. Your burger sounds grand, not available here. You eat healthy and that's good.

I'd love a misty day! It has turned dry here and the Kentucky Wonder beans I had so looked forward to, have become dry, beanless pods. Lots of work went into putting up panels for them to climb on. Oh well, we still have good things to eat from the garden. I'm sure you're going to enjoy the fresh tomatoes! And, I'd like to share some weight with you :)

Rebecca said...

I would take pleasure in looking at those pine cons!
And I have been enjoying other-peoples'-tomatoes for about a week now! Nothing like fresh tomatoes

Dear Ernestine, When I left my last permanent teaching job 16 years ago a little girl gave me a 5 inch high fir tree in a little red pot, covered in "Silly Snow" - it was Christmas time. Luckily we planted it on the north side of the house! Today it towers over the garage, a full healthy tree with a thick trunk, covered in attractive orange cones. I just love it.

Lovely morning! Cool and sunny here too. I too like the pine cones. Thanks for sharing. :-)

Hopefully, your technological problems will soon be behind you, but you seem to be managing well enough in the meantime.

Kay said...

I still haven't tried almond milk, but just today a friend recommended it. I'm sorry for all the computer hassle you've been having. I'm also having some setbacks with the Windows 10 upgrade.

I had hoped by now you would have a new post. Hope all is well with you.

Pienosole said...

Thinking of you and sending happy thoughts :-)!

Marcie said...

Stopping by to let you know I am thinking of you. Hope that all is well.

Appreciated your photos! I know the frustration of computer issues as have had my share. A new modem is finally keeping me connected to the Internet consistently. Hope you're able to get your situation resolved soon.
