It's Tuesday

 I'm back.....

Not wanting to be out of commission indefinitely, I ended up buying a new computer. I got a Microsoft Surface.Has anyone used one before? I didn't even know Microsoft made computers.  So far so good....And it's pretty:)



Tuesday's question

If you watch Netflix or Prime, what's your favorite series?

Ours: Longmire and Blacklist (starring James Spader).  I love James Spader. He brings the same eccentricity and dry humor to the Blacklist series that he brought to Boston Legal.

AND...Spring Cuts

Faux and Frank got their Spring cuts.  It always stuns me how much Faux perks up after she gets hers. Since she has problems cleaning herself, I think it's her version of a bubble bath. She no longer feels dirty.

 
 


AND....Spring flowers

I am not a happy gardener. Those darn voles ate nearly all my tulip bulbs.  


 




What's your favorite series? How are your critters? Flowers? Is your computer behaving?

*The little two year old is starting chemo next month. All prayers and positive energy are appreciated.

  1. Welcome back.
    I am definitely sending healthy vibes to the two year old (and family).
    Jazz has hypothyroidism and will have to have two pills a day for life. Wince.
    Loving your garden - but v sorry that the voles munched your tulips.

    1. Ack. Sorry to hear about the hypothyroidism. I feel your pain on pilling. I gave up years ago and just crush them up and put them in their food.

      Hope your family is safe and well also.

  3. What vile voles for eating your bulbs. So few seem to use desktop computers now but they do seem to be the most reliable. Anyway, it is nice that you have a smart new machine. Spring has sprung in your neck of the woods, while our leaves are beginning to brown.

    1. Vile voles. I love it:)
      Desktops did seem to last longer, didn't they?

  5. It's amazing how much we rely on computers these days (and that's not a complaint, just an observation). Even my mum, who has no social media etc, was lost when hers was out of commission a few days ago.

    I love new toys to play with!

  6. Welcome back! Just poking in for a moment myself as I'm mostly offline until next week. I'd looked at the Surface and ended up getting another iPad Pro instead.
    Those poor shaved cats...

    1. Thanks, Alex.
      Glad the iPad Pro is working out for you.
      Trust me, we're all much happier after the cuts:) The cats don't have mats pulling their skin and creepy crawly critters aren't being carried into the house on Frank's fur. Shudder. :)

  7. Glad you're back. Glad you like your computer. I just got a Dell XPS in November and love it. It's so much faster than my old one. Love your flowers. We're still about a month away from any here in Michigan.

  8. Beautiful computer, that’s as new one to me! Right now we’re watching more Prime
    , ( I listen) . Your critters are starting the season off well! Our little dog became a spritely young pup after each hair cut too. There will be no blossoms in our area for a while, we still have quite a bit of snow,

    1. Snow! Ack! Definitely a four letter word:)
      I think the critters enjoy their cuts as much as we do.
      Take special care.

  9. Your new computer looks great. Mine is old and very wobbly, a bit like me! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

    1. You are entitled to a bit of wobbly. Here's hoping in a couple of weeks all your stamina is back.
      Hugs received and returned.

  10. Congrats on the new computer. My computer must have gone into sleep mode while doing a Windows 10 update and the update froze at 61%. I'm going to pretend all is well. On Netflix: The Crown, Bridgerton, The Good Place, The Queen's Gambit. On Prime: Man in the High Castle, Heroes, Lovecraft Country. Try planting daffodils as the critters don't like the taste.

    1. Ach. I hate when that happens to the computer.
      I've been thinking about daffodils. I'm hesitant because they're poisonous.
      Thanks for the suggestions:)

  12. Glad the cats are ready for the season! And very pretty blooms. Good luck with the new computer. Keep us posted. I'm looking soon!

    My netflix faves: The Crown, The Queen's Gambit, Schitt's Creet, The Repair Shop, bunches of others. There's a new Audrey Hepburn doc that just started and lots of Brit-bio stuff. Oscar movies too -- there are several right now.

  13. Thanks. Good luck with yours.
    I meant to try Queen's Gambit then got sidetracked;)

  15. Hi Sandra - so pleased you've got organised with a new machine - they are so essential ... I'm ticking along with its old bones, matching my own! Beautiful flowers ... love the tulip ...
    The same applies to Netflix ... I've enjoyed Bridgerton and need to finish Queen's Gambit ... but there's a huge range. Enjoy whatever you watch and have a peaceful weekend.
    I do hope your little one gets all the help and success he needs ... with thoughts - Hilary

    1. Good on you for your 'puter having old bones. My last 2 or 3 have died early. Queen's Gambit keeps popping up. I may have to check it out.
      Thanks for your well wishes for our Grand. Much appreciated.
      Take special care.

  16. I’m glad you are back on line...missed you! My computer issues are aok so long as my hubby doesn’t decide to fix things. Love your garden picks and we are starting to see buds and things poking out of the earth. We don’t have any streaming services but speaking of tv shows, we like New Amsterdam, FBI and I like Manifest.
