It's Tuesday

 Mystery Solved.

As previously mentioned, the HH was kind enough to give me money for a new phone for my bday. Mine was nearly as old as I am. Ha ha. Now that's a blatant exaggeration. Nothing or no one is that old.😁 One of the problems I was having was that I couldn't send myself emails with pictures attached. I could email them to anyone else but not myself.  Weird huh? Has anyone else had this problem? Show of hands.  So when I got my new phone, I thought my problem would be solved. Nope it traveled right over to the new phone. I finally broke down and called Apple and after some trial and error the specialist figured it out. Last chance. Do you know what the problem was? 

I never saw this coming nor would I have figured it out. They wouldn't send because the BCC on the phone setting was turned on. Turned it off and they started coming through. Problem solved.

AND...Speaking of the HH here's the Valentine's Day card he gave me.


 AND...Pre-retirement, my boss always brought me homemade jams and jellies. I got spoiled. Store bought just didn't cut it after her jellies, until I found this brand. Have you had it? It's not expensive and the closest to homemade I've found. Very tasty. I found it at Aldi's.

AND...Just because it's pretty.

AND...

Belated Happy BDay, Di:)

What about you, blogger buds? Unsolved phone issues? Got a special jam you'd like to share? Or a birthday?

  2. I would not have guessed the solution to your problem. I suppose it is a security feature.
    The Valentine's Day card is rather special.
    I'll look out for that jam/jelly/fruit spread at Aldi.

    1. Isn't that just too weird?

  4. My phone is MUCH smarter than I am.
    Like Andrew I will look out for those jams next time I am in Aldi.
    And yes, your card is lovely.
    A happy birthday to Di.

  5. Hi Sandra - love the card ... and yes - it's usually something remarkably simple to solve a problem ... silly things too ... but just life - not stupidity! A really good jam or jelly ... we have a few brands here ... but I rarely use them ... and Aldi is the other side of town - but I know they do good 'things'. Happy birthday to Di ... all the best - Hilary

    1. Yes, the simple things can snag us as easily as the complicated, can't they, Hils?
      Stay safe. Be well.

  8. Maybe they can figure out why my iPad only plays in one earbud.

    Is that Di me? Or another? Thank you.

    1. One earbud working, yikes. That's frustrating.
      Definitely you:)

  9. I never would have figured out that phone thing. But then, I have a flip phone. That's a great gift. Happiest of birthdays, belated as it is!

    Your valentine is just gorgeous! And thanks for the tip on the jam. I'll remember that one!

  10. I would never have guess BCC was the phone issue. What a lovely valentine! We don't have an Aldi's, so I've never heard of that brand. Enjoy your day!

  12. Hope you had a lovely weekend. I don’t use half of what is on my phone and I still don’t know how to to retrieve my messages. I do love that card! It is so retro and delicate. That vase is pretty and looks like something one would by in an antique store. I do like Smuckers but I am more of a honey person...love my honey.

    1. As EC says, my phone is smarter than I am:)
      Honey is a wonderful, natural sweetener.
      YOU have a wondrous day.

  13. Now you know why I STILL don't own a cell phone (grin). I admit, I almost got one when I upgraded to fiber optics on my phone and internet, but decided I still don't need one since I never go anywhere.

    LOVE your Valentine card. So dainty and vintage looking.

    I have purchased that fruit spread pre-covid. Haven't even asked Scott to look for it since then.

    Happy belated birthday to Di, too, dear Sandra.

  16. I would not have guessed that was the problem with not being able to send emails with pictures to yourself. So crazy! Glad you got some help and hope you are enjoying your new phone. :) The card is fabulous!!
