P.S.

Yes .. I am in the middle of changing over to BIG scary new computer .. everything is scary to me at first .. I am a total "chicken s**t" type of tech gal until I cozy up to my devices and feel comfortable with them ..
Number One Son has been setting me up but there are still a million and one things to set up and he had the nerve to go to work on me ?
Husband helps .. but he is still recovering and needs to rest .. I would drive a saint to drink the way I ask so many questions and want everything to work NOW ?
So .. I have the new computer to tailor to "me" and a another wireless wonder of a printer aka scanner/faxer/chocolate and fudge maker if need be ?
Now that kind of machine I can REALLY cozy up to !!!
So I maybe a little while getting up to speed .. working between my lap top and BIG BABY
But me dropping out of the garden blog world ? hehehehehe ... only if I win the lottery and I have to set up another office in the cool new digs we would move into and that would be faster because then I would hire a PA to "get this show on the road EH !!"

Thank God it is only a new computer! I thought, no it couldn't be true that Joy is leaving the blogging world. The new computer looks wonderful and you will love the wireless printer.

Eileen girl : ) thank you ! This is going to be a little more detailed with trying to get it customized to how I would like it to be .. but hey .. I'm almost headed in the right direction towards my garden office? LOL

Lona girl you are making me giggle and jiggle with giggles ? haha .. I wasn't going to get the new system until I was ready to move into the office .. but the sales were great for students, so we figured "just say YES!" haha .. so now I have graduated to the dining room table?
Next stop will be the office .. next month hopefully ?? I'm like glue .. you can't get rid of me girl!

Sweet--a new computer and wireless do-everything machine! Have fun settling into all the newness of it. Does it have that new car, I mean computer, smell? ;)

Lisa at Greenbow said...

What a nice new machine. I am with you in regards to getting used to a new machine. Necessary evils they are.

Fudge maker! You crack me up! Good luck with the new set up, I'm sure it will be great once you get use to it. If you really like the pineapple you can get one through home hardwarde, they are very reasonably priced and will bring one in for you if not in stock. :)

PS. Get that gazing ball outside ;).

Lola said...

OMG playing with the big boys, eh. Sure is pretty. Wireless printer? Gads. Wish I had one. Everything around here has to be plugged into something. lol
Son taught me all I know about these things, I still don't know anything. lol

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Aerie-el girl hello there : )
Too funny about the "new" smell but hey you are right girl ! It does smell NEW !!! haha

Lisa right now I am running between the two of them until I finally download my bits and pieces on to this one .. the BIG screen is amazing! : )

Rebecca girl I have felt guilty about my gazing ball that hubby brought back from one of the Carolina states .. I just want the garden to be at the almost perfect stage to place it there .. I'm a stickler for that .. and I am still wowed by your water features .. the indoor one my cats would absolutely LOVE!!

Lola girl same here .. son and husband try to teach me things and I get so confused it takes ages just to grasp basic points .. but wow .. this is fun and once I get my office .. holy smokes poor hubby won't see me for days ? LOL

Oh it's such an odd feeling when you get a new computer and things don't happen the way you're used to. But in the end you'll grow to love it and once you get that room - wow, super cosy and all yours :) You? Give up blogging? NEVER! we love you too much xxx

Your gardens are beautiful girl! I feel your horror with new computers. I do at times drive my "Saint" to drink with questions. He is not the best one to ask computer advice as he does this for a living and it drives him nuts when i dont understand something. It drives me nuts when he does something so quickly that I could not see what he did. Then he gets frustrated with me when I ask him to do it again while I take notes. hee hee...

Mostly with new things, I say, "Honey, read the books and do all the research, set it up then show me how to do it". LOL....

Halloween stuff is in the stores girl :-)

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Carrie girl I can't tell you how excited I am with these new toys .. even though I am in the dining room for now .. it is all GOOD : )
Ahhhhh ! You are too sweet, thank you and I hope your birthday was REALLY SPECIAL : )

OMG Skeeter girl that is SO what happens here .. Son is way too fast but husband is good .. he doesn't mind the million and one questions(after he takes his meds that is ! hahah)
The heat wave is back and if we don't get rain again my poor plants are going to be weepy .. then I will be weepy dragging the hose around ;-)
I haven't found any thing Halloweeny at my favorite store yet so what do I do ? I buy two more plants for the garden .. when will I stoppppppp !!

Marguerite said...

oh dear, I feel the pain. While I can usually figure out tech stuff it takes me ages and usually more than a few hissy fits before I get it done. Hang in there and eventually you won't even remember the old computer.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hello Marguerite girl ! Yup .. I think after a while things will settle down and I will be able to cope .. the next move into my office (which won't be for a while yet ..) will just be a matter of unplugging and moving .. it will all be just right for me over the winter , getting used to it : )
