Good Thursday Morning

It is 6:30 on Thursday morning. I am breaking up my routine a bit. I decided that even though I do not like my laptop that well, I am going to use it this morning.. I am sitting in the living room, with a small cover. I am in a comfy chair and have my bruised foot elevated. Oh, and of course there is coffee. I am going to concentrate on just myLot. Usually I am in the office, using the desktop, sitting in an office chair and I am all over the place on different websites. So this is a change for me. I can picture us, all around the world, communicating with one another. Some from work (which I never can do) Some people are in bed and using their tablets and others are on their phones, which I think would be hard. The laptop is not my preferred way to access the internet, but that is because I have not used it as often as I could and I am not comfortable on it. The way I strike the keys is different. The screen scrolls without me meaning to. So this morning I am trying to do a little catch up here.a I will leave the house in less than a half hour.

Been there, done that. but I do not have any place to get online there. My table is in the dining room. I took an interesting fall on ice over a week ago and I read that I should elevate my bruised foot and leg, so I thought I would give this a try.Good morning toyou, and here's to coughee!

@GardenGerty I took a spill a few days ago, bruised my hip a bit but nothing serious. No ice involved, but mud.

"The screen scrolls without me meaning to." That's why I use a mouse with my laptop... too easy to touch the touch pad with it right under the keyboard. When I plug in the mouse, it over-rides the touch pad.

I do that and plug in a keyboard as well. It doesn't override the keyboard, if I reach up and type a letter on the laptop it types it. When the wife's great-niece and nephew moved with the family to Kansas she sent up a computer and two mice, one for each kid. All they had to do was plug both in and only the one in current use would do anything. I guess if each kid was messing with the mice then they'd probably both work most of the time.

@GardenGerty My mouse is wireless, too, but there's a little thingie I need to plug in with the other peripherals to make it work.

My mother loved her trip to Kenya back in the 1990s. I have the picture of a giraffe over my desk that she took.

I could use the laptop, but, like you, I don't really like it. In fact, I have a keyboard and mouse I use when I use the laptop because I've been too long on ergonomic keyboards to be too happy with flat ones... In fact, I got the wife hooked on them too! Sorry to hear you hurt your foot. When I fell just before Christmas I really didn't get hurt. I was trying to put the wife's suitcase in the car to take up to the hospital. However, I didn't even get out the door. I fell right in the doorway. I needed the roommate to throw Boris out of the room and then she got me a folding chair to use to get up. Get better soon. I guess I need to go visit the wife in the hospital tomorrow... **sigh**

The more I look the more bruising I find. I hate yo yo weather. WE had snow, then sunshine, then bitter cold and the snow turned to ice.Some people are natual care takers and you are one of them. Tell Viv "hello" from us.

I need a mouse with my laptop. It's not my preferred method to this madness either. I much prefer my desktop. I've told myself I want to get used to the laptop. It still sits in the same place in the living room, untouched. I hope your day goes well. I'm sorry about your bruised foot.

I didn’t use my iPad much to begin with. I liked my desktop best but now I hardly ever go to my desktop. I sit on the couch and Mylot.

@GardenGerty It’s much more comfortable for me, besides my desktop is slow and sluggish. I guess it’s full of viruses.
