19 Sept., 2006. A fine day it is to be sure. The rain came all morning as a fine, but steady mist. 'Twas as if god was givin' us a washin'. With the temperatures in the high 50's and the misty rain it felt exhilarating to get out and go to work.

I came home early because I'm going to drive D. to the eye doctor, and she will have her eyes dilated and won't be able to drive safely afterwards.

For unknown reasons my laptop computer is behaving for the moment so I've decided to try a post. My new laptop has been ordered and should be ready for pick-up Thursday or Friday at the latest. In the mean time I've been able to catch up on some reading. I prefer to read from the print on paper technology, since that is what I grew up with. If I find something on line to read that is of any length, I print it out because I find it too difficult to read from the computer screen except in short bursts. The same principal applies to my writing. I make many fewer mistakes both spelling and grammer wise when I put pencil on paper rather than typing on the computer. So, all in all, this little break has been like a gentle breeze of fresh air.

What a lovely autumnal photo - glad to have you back even if only temporarily. I'm like you - I prefer to both read and write with old-fashioned methods - too many typing errors creep in on the computer. I've left some very odd looking comments around the blog scene! If I can get stupid Blogger to upload my photos there may be another piece from me later tonight.

Absolutely gorgeous photo! Like you, I print long things out to read - and to save. I prefer books to reading online, although I read newspapers online these days, as it's hard to find the good ones in English. Sounds like you're enjoying your break from the computer - but don't stay away too long!

what a nice Fall picture! I was enjoying the Fall weather today myself. I love curling up on the swing on my deck with a good book or magazine.

Lovely photo of autumn colours. We don't really get that in Queensland as our seasons are basically hot and cool. But in Tasmania (the little island at the bottom of Australia), they get spectacular colours.

Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

Take care, Rel
