In some respects, you can tell how far behind the times I am. I bought my first cell phone a month ago for emergency uses only. We do travel on the highway at least once a month and if we break down or have an accident, and as there are fairly long distances that are empty of stores, houses, etc. we figured it was a good idea. I haven't used the phone yet and as the month was up and I wanted the minutes not used to go on this months card, I bought more minutes to put in. So, I had the instructions and they seemed very simple. Call a toll free number and I would be told what to do. Now the fun begins!!! A mechanical voice comes on telling me to enter my cell phone number. I gave the cell number and voice says something to the effect "This does not compute." I tried it several times and kept getting the same result. I was getting a little furious to say the least telling himself that I was going to call the company and give them a blast. Himself says "Let me try, maybe a male voice is needed." This didn't make much sense to me, but heigh ho, let him try. Again, no luck. So, phoned a friend for help. She came and in no time had the minutes added. The problem......I was using my voice to tell them my cell phone number instead of entering it with the phone keys. I felt a right fool. But I did learn something, lol.
Yesterday on getting up the temperature with +17 C. We couldn't believe it! In the early morning I was outside in my pajamas only, leaning on the gate, contemplating it all. It was unreal for this time of year. We did have another brush of snow overnight but it's suppose to warm up again in a couple of days.
This morning I've been polishing some of the silver, a job I really don't like. Also, my mind has been planning Yule celebrations. I just don't know where the time is going. We're having people in for Yule and again on Christmas Eve. Lots to do for these events coming up.
We've had a fair bit of rain lately and I could hear the stream rushing so decided to take the camera and walk over to see how it was. Here's a short video, turn on your sound.
