Tuesday in the Swamp

Busy week so far.  Yesterday they showed up to finish the pool and it's all done except for hooking up the pump and Mac will do that.  Today as we had water going in the pool he's been busy putting back up the lattice work panels that go around the pool for privacy.  Have to grow some new vines.
Yesterday afternoon we both had doctor's appointments to have moles removed.  I go twice a year to my dermatologist so I only had one to be cut off, Mac had many and he's a mass of  bandaids and sore spots.
Today it was do laundry, make bread, clean bathrooms and listen to the piano tuner who was doing my annual tune-up.  It sounds much better.
Not really hot, but incredibly humid, Mac is changing to his third shirt of the day and after I cleaned bathrooms I had to put a cold rag on my face and neck.
Yesterday morning, and I do mean most of the morning, was spent getting i-tunes to recognize my password, took 2 calls to Apple support to get it straight.  I had to authorize this new computer to have access to my i-tune library.
I think that's the last thing I have to set up.  So far I've been very happy with my new machine.  Our daughter doesn't like Macs, she says the Mouse doesn't have enough buttons.  I said it doesn't have any and she said, "Exactly".  She's much more tech savvy than we are and really knows hew way around a computer, but I just want a computer that's easy to use.

  1. That pool looks very inviting. Sounds like you need one to cool off in.

  5. The pool looks nice. It has been awfully humid here too. It's miserable, and hard to work in. I can't see for the sweat running in my eyes.

  7. Glad your pool is nearly ready for you to cool down! We'd need a covered heated pool here, it is still below 20 degrees centigrade. I don't know what that would be in Fahrenheit. I have a Mac and a Windows laptop and much prefer my Mac, never any problems with it. I guess you like most what you are used to. I only have a Windows computer at work because some of the digital learning software we use is not available for Mac. x

  8. The pool looks so inviting, I bet it gets plenty of use with the heat and humidity you get. Sadly we probably only have two or three days where it would be warm enough to go in here.

  9. I am envious. Always wanted a pool - never got one and it's too late now. Passwords are a pain. I blogged about my experience quite recently and it still isn't sorted. I reckon that those companies that insist on having one forget to record the ones we change to.

  11. Totally agree about computers that are easy to use, I like to be able to switch on do what I want quickly and get off again without any hassle. The pool looks good:)

  12. Your pool looks so nice ! Just looking at it must make you feel cool.
    I try not to have any vines or plants next to the pool or on our safety fence. To many critters use them as a ladder into the yard here in Tucson.

    cheers, parsnip

  14. It sounds like with your heat you need the pool! I switched to a Mac about 8 years ago and I love it. I think you will like yours too. Those tech support calls are dreadful though.

  16. I've always wondered...how long does it take to fill a pool?

    It looks very inviting!
