I notice that the pictures I scanned that were originally taken in the early 1990’s, are roughly from 300-500 KB, while the pictures from my digital camera are more like 1.4 MB. That is a big difference which probably explains the great disparity in quality. Can someone tell me if there is a way to save the early pictures at a higher quality? I don’t remember there being an option, but I think there is if I knew how to do it.
My g’daughter Ara came over this morning and we spent the day together. I love having lunch at La Bou restaurant, and for the 2nd time since she has been back for the holidays we went there to eat and talk. We gabbed all afternoon and she helped me hang the large needlepoint picture that is over my couch. I just love having her around and discussing the things that make us so alike although we are so many years apart in age. Our general perspective of the world is so similar, our political views are so alike, and most everything in between. I am grateful for her and the energy she exudes. It takes me back to my 20’s.
I had set a loaf of bread to finish baking about the time she would be arriving this morning, and we enjoyed bread slathered with butter along with our coffee. My coffee maker is definitely not working right, and I’m not really happy with the backup machine I have on hand, so tomorrow I will start using the Melitta system until I buy a new Mr. Coffee. I think the Melitta brewed coffee is the best I’ve ever tasted, but the only way you can keep it warm is to transfer it to a thermos.
I wonder if others have noticed they receive considerably more spam comments in the past month or so. I get them quite often, mostly just a few words plus a link, and today I received one that had quite a long message plus the link. The language was such poor English that I’m sure it came from the Balkans, which is where a lot of this stuff is coming from lately, according to what I’ve heard. At least Blogger catches it so it doesn’t get published.
Well, that’s been my day. Ara has offered to help me get back to painting, so I think I will do the prep work on the closet doors so she can start applying the primer. I’d like to get all those little tasks that I’ve left undone, before I start on the kitchen or the remainder of the living room. Little by little it’s coming together, and while I’d like to have everything completed yesterday, I think I can maintain my patience with it.
