Morning Meanderings… Sometimes my dorkiness even astounds me…
Good morning people of Tuesday! I come in peace…. and with coffee
Ugh…. raining AGAIN in Central Minnesota…. gloomy and gray….
YESTERDAY afternoon I came home from work. The day had a bit of a fall feeling to it, cooler and overcast and I was going to work on some on-line stuff. SO I grabbed my laptop, my mouse, my blanky, and popped into the recliner. Logged on… and for the life of me, could not get the mouse to work.
*Note: I am nothing without the laptop mouse. It is a crutch, I know… but I can not navigate pages, scroll to comments, or I sure can not play Scrabble on Facebook because I can not figure out how to hang on to the tiles to move them into place without the mouse.
The mouse, appears by all appearance to be working fine. The little light on the bottom indicates a good battery. I reset it. I take the battery out and put the battery in. I even get up and grab two more batteries out of the drawer and try them. All the same results… mouse looks fine, will not work.
I… am seriously frustrated. For some reason the mouse will not be acknowledged by the laptop.
I…. am wasting time.
About 30 minutes later I get up go do something else…. as I pass by my kitchen table I see this:
For those unfamiliar with the workings of the cordless mouse, this little do-dad here is what plugs into your computer/laptop to make the mouse work. Without it… by all appearance your mouse is going to look like it should work… it will not.
SO….. once I put that little guy into my laptop side… all was well in mouse world again…. but I….
was feeling pretty foolish and wondering how that detail fell out of my head.
Moving on…. today I work, but tonight… I have no agenda. I LOVE that! And it is rainy but no matter, all my outdoor work – mowing, trimming, is done. Quite the opposite of last week when I had something going on every night.
How is your Tuesday unfolding? Are there books in your day? Which one(s)? Mine may be the conclusion on Jane Eyre and finishing up Some Girls by Sara Pekkanen as well.
