It’s Bagel Wednesday! We decided to go for a longer ride today for breakfast and went to Panera Bread. It was in the 70s when we left the house and while it was humid, the ride was pretty pleasant.
Panera Bread had their AC set on stun, though. It was cold in there! My bagel and coffee:
Normally Wed rides are 12-13 miles. We ended up with 17 miles on the day. It was much hotter on the way home. I popped out in more freckles. At 9 in the morning and the sun gives me freckles!
Finally getting almost caught up at work – for today anyway LOL! I also just bought a new computer. My old computer has a lot of issues. The port for the cord charger is loose, so the computer would be alternating between battery and A/C mode with a little flashing message (very annoying when trying to type). Then the touch pad gave out. I hate using a regular mouse because the second my hand leaves the keyboard I stop making money. So, I have been griping about my productivity for the last week. Then the keyboard itself would stop working and I would have to reboot to get it working again. All this was equaling a very cranky Lori. Add heat and humidity to that and you can probably imagine what poor John has been having to deal with
Anyway, my new computer arrived today. I just got a chance to use it after work and get it set up.
It’s a 13.5 inch computer, so a bit bigger than my ebook, but pretty manageable. It will take a bit to get used to the keyboard spacing. Not sure if sure Pixie will fit on my lap, though.
Tomorrow will be an interesting day. I have to have work tech support set up my computer so I can log in to the system and run the software. It could be a nightmare as they are using antiquated software and this computer has to be retrofit to run virtual windows XP. I am really hoping it goes smoothly, but I have my doubts. Wish me luck!
On a fun note – a new flower is blooming in my garden and I couldn’t wait until Friday!
(I changed my camera settings to see if I can get some better pictures, so let me know if it loads whonky.)
This is an heirloom lily – isn’t it precious??
