Birthday gifts included a gift card from DH for ebay. I am finding it interesting, the items I am considering ~ since I am not spending "my" money on it. Of course, it is all the same money, really, but I am enjoying picking and choosing. All yarn so far, of course. There is a topic on the knitting board about how a yarn stash is organized. Mine is, plastic tubs, newest on top. No other criteria, so if I want, say, bulky yarn, I must go through a lot of bins to find it. But that is OK with me, part of the reason I buy what I do is the feel of it, fuzzy or silky or whatever.
The temp outside today is 17 so far today, but there is a little blue sky trying to get through with a bit of sunshine. I am in favor. I think tomorrow is predicted to be warmer, we shall see.
My laptop MacBook has a shiny new battery, the old one just would not hold a charge more than 2 hours. I think I have replaced it once already, but after all, the thing is 10 years old. I upgraded the OS too, so it is running more smoothly and faster as well. I could retreat to the desktop downstairs, but after a while I get claustrophobic down there, it is a tiny little room. I would get a new MacBook if I could justify spending $1000+ for a shiny toy.
Bumper sticker for the day: "My exercise routine consists of doing Diddly Squats."
