I think I should comment on some readers’ comments & suggestions. First of all, I was back at Fry’s today and just about all the portable hard drives are already formatted – for Windows. And of course the one expressly for the Mac and pre-formatted for the Mac is more than I care to spend. I ended up buying two 4GB flash drives. If they work, then I will copy my photos and music on one, and my genealogy database on the other. If the music and pictures don’t fit on one flash drive then I’ll just have to get another drive. I can’t think of anything else I could lose that would be disastrous for me – and the photos and genealogy are the only two things I couldn’t replace.
I have been complaining about being so tired, and I nearly always take a nap during the afternoon. I think the tiredness I have now is the sort that comes with boredom and/or depression. Not that I’m clinically depressed or anything, but I am so limited in what I can do until my sight improves, and being such an independent person, it is making me a very unhappy camper. That said, I am still planning the future. I’m also looking forward to seeing my oldest granddaughter who comes home from college tomorrow.
It got up to mid 80’s again today and I didn’t realize how hot that can feel until I was out of my cool apartment and into the sun. Sacramento summer – nothing like it. So far it feels like I have a/c indoors, but I wonder what it will be like 10 or 20 degrees from now.
I think I’ll go sit on the patio and get buzzed watching and listening to the hummingbirds.
