I am still working on stealth projects only, so I have no CeCe progress to show you. Poor CeCe! I hope she does not get a complex from the lack of attention.
I did get a new toy this past weekend.
I caved and bought an iPad.
I had absolutely no desire to own an iPad. Until a couple of weeks ago when I sat next to a very nice woman on a plane (hi Jane!) who had one. Because I never shut up, I of course asked her about it and she let me play with it. And I was hooked.
My iPad arrived on Saturday and I wasted no time in getting it set up. So far, I love it. I downloaded the Kindle app for it so all my Kindle content is available. I downloaded approximately 2,000 photos of Lucy and all my music from iTunes.
In the past when I traveled I brought a laptop and my Kindle with me. Now I can leave the laptop at home and just take the iPad, which in its case weighs just a few ounces more than does my Kindle in its case. Because I have ongoing back issues, the less I carry the better so I am very happy about that.
(Can you tell what book I’m reading?)
I’ve downloaded a few free apps and purchased a few. I bought Scrabble so that the KOARC and I can play over a local network (he has the app on his iPod Touch). And I have spent an embarrassing amount of time fishing for virtual koi in a little koi pond app (iFish Pond) that amuses me perhaps a little too much.
I have added a few knitting apps, but have not tried out any of them yet.
So there you have it. Excuse #5,742 why I have no knitting to show you.
Now that the warm weather is here to stay, Lucy far prefers napping on a silk-covered pillow than her sheepskin.
Except when she deems the a/c to be a bit too chilly. Then she’s in my lap!
