You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me?! LOL, kinda what my day has been today. People are honestly just crazy lately. The picture above is one of my Busch Garden pics, it just seemed appropriate.
Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries. A neighbor went out to the east of the county to a U-Pick and decided to bring me some back. Oh my gosh ... three five gallon buckets worth. I'm drowning in berries and have to get them taken care of asap. Not that I'm not grateful but it was definitely a blessing I wasn't expecting so you can imagine what I've done today and will continue to do tomorrow. Love strawberries but I'm about to get strawberry'd out I can tell you that. And my fingers are turning to prunes from having to wash and cap all of these things. Did I mention three five-gallon buckets worth of berries?
I've found a neat way to get a little writing done while I'm doing other stuff. My IPhone has a record feature on one of my note taking applications. It isn't perfect and I can only record in short blurbs but when all I have time for is to write short blurbs between doing other things it has actually sped the process up. I bought my father the program called "Dragon" birthday before last and it is basically supposed to be hands-free typing. My father liked it for a while but I'm not sure how much he still uses it. I give something like that a try though it is a bit intimidating to say what I'm typing aloud for anyone in the house to hear. I type over a hundred words a minute so it isn't a matter of speed ... it is more time. Oh well, I'll figure something out. Though I should probably have my head examined for trying to squish anymore stuff into my already busy day. LOL!
It's official, we now have so many wifi enabled items in the house that not even our FiOS connection can keep up. I've actually had to get a gizmo for hubby's office that plugs into our Ethernet port and then sends the signal through the house electrical lines so he can keep a connection in his office. I got it from Tiger Direct but now that they are closing the stores in my area - and they don't carry it online - I'm not sure where I am going to find another one that I like as well. I know what is going on my to do list next week. A couple of years ago we used to think that FiOS was the fastest thing imaginable. Now that we are used to those kinds of connection speeds any little slow down can turn into an irritant.
Well despite the unexpected blessing of strawberries I did manage to get some writing done. Geek will definitely be done sooner rather than later, possibly even by next week barring floods, tornadoes, locusts, or other forms of real life getting in the way.

Found a couple of more disaster flicks for everyone to watch on youtube. LOL! I know, I know ... but I just can't help myself. Enjoy!
