I am a creature of attachment. I hang onto the familiar. However, I can change. It takes me a little longer. Having successfully updated my Mac to High Sierra, I am now updating my MacBook Air, hoping it will improve the Photo app there. I am spending more time on my gadgets. But hopefully in the end it will save time.
But are new and improved better? I still cling to the old format of writing on WordPress. I am happy it’s still an option. I’ve tried the improved editor and it’s not copacetic with my brain. It stalls and won’t turn over. No letters or words are forthcoming. So why torture myself if it’s not better for me?
Life and I are marching on slowly but steadily on this cold frosty morning. It’s -17 Celsius. The sun is brilliant. Sheba and I are toasty warm in the sunroom. I’m trying to be more in the real world, in real time. I’ve given thought as to what’s for dinner. The ham is out of the freezer, ready to be diced and fried with onions for the perogies. The soup from yesterday is ready to be reheated. The towels are in the washer. I’m experimenting using vinegar to boost the detergent power. Less detergent, less pollution of our water supply. Less detergent, more money in the pocket. It’s a win win.
The towels are done, looking clean and fluffy. I added 1/4 cup vinegar in the bleach dispenser and half of my usual detergent. Hope there is less soap residue left in the laundry and machine. It’s worthwhile to take the time to experiment new ideas and ways. It’s a good exercise for me to focus my impatient and fractured mind. I have to read directions, take each step and follow through. It drives me crazy, of course. But steps do quiet the frenzy in my brain. My MacBook Air has finished updating. The Photo app is much better with the High Sierra. Some improvements are real.
