And then, well... instead of crocheting I decided to take advantage of the good weather to do things like start cleaning windows, get rid of fading perennials, clean the pots they were planted in, I even dyed some faded black jeans back to black again. And several days this week I interacted with the phone line repair man as he worked to get our internet service working again. And, of course, normal life was happening too - which includes the scheduled along with the spontaneous.
It was a good week.
And while I didn't get my blanket finished, I'm pleased as punch at what all did get done.
And I'm happy to say that as of Saturday morning we are finally, once again stably connected to the internet. Stronger and faster than ever. Everything's new. New modem, new filters, new wiring, we've been put on the new equipment at the "office" - I asked what that meant and got a complicated answer. I suspect the simple answer was that we were paying for something we weren't getting (and now are, presumably...?) And lastly on Saturday, a new NID was installed on the outside of our house (where the wires are attached) and FINALLY we are humming along, with no drops from the internet. No interruptions to interacting on the web. No lost posts. No reboots while watching something on Netflix. After two weeks of all the aforementioned, it's absolutely amazing!
And that's all she wrote. To see what other YOPers are up to, visit our group on Ravelry!
An addendum... I have joined in on NaBloPoMo (where bloggers post something each day) during the month of November. In my posts, I'm just sharing my world - hopefully with pictures and a little commentary each day. I love getting a glimpse into others' worlds, so I thought it might be a fun way to work this challenge. It's not too late - until the month is over - to join in! I can't find anything online that's official in regards to this challenge, though if there is, please let me (and others) know in a comment below!
