The day began with a resounding thud.

Saturday, DH and I went to Austin for the monthly IH35 Stitchtogether. I stitched and DH went to Cabela's and bought himself man toys used for hunting. We had a good group and had a lot of fun stitching and eating and discussing everything as usual. DH found such a good sale on his man toys, that they would not all fit in the Jetta and he will have to get his tree stand during next month's trip. We did come home with the deer feeder in the back seat. My hobby takes up less space and is less expensive than his!
While walking up our muddy driveway to the car on Saturday morning at the crack of dawn, I had a mishap. DH had placed some pieces of OSB board over some of the biggest puddles in the dip, and as I stepped on one to get across the puddle, it broke and I fell like a stone. I wasn't hurt, just completely muddied up and had to trudge back to the house to wash and change clothes. This made me grumpy for awhile.
Last Friday, I was successful in setting up the new computer. However, I could not download the virus software I wanted due to our dial-up being so slow; it kept timing out. So I am going to go to town to see if I can download the program to a thumb drive from DH's work computer. I don't want to get on the internet at all until I can get the new computer protected. In fact, I am posting this from the old computer.
I have finally reached the end of my rope with dial-up. We are investigating getting broadband out here; rumor has it that it is available. If so, we're getting it. I waste a lot of time at the computer waiting on stuff to download.
A note from my stitching chair: I've been stitching sporadically. I just need to stitch the "Boo Y'all" words on my WIP and I'll be done with it. The fabric is a Solo I got from Silkweaver.

Sorry to hear you fell. Sometimes our pride gets hurts worse than our rump.
