About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Oh my! It's NOVEMBER already!!!

Where has the time gone!?!?  

I've been busy making Christmas gifts (sorry no pictures until after Christmas on those), busy hand quilting some smaller quilts, and playing with my new Ipad.   I have no idea what all it does but I've been playing around with it trying to learn all the quirks and features.  

And as if that wasn't enough I decided to purchase Apple TV which is a streaming device to be able to watch Netflix and Hulu - those types of things.   I bought it for two reasons 1) everyone said super easy to install...NOT and 2) I'm sick and tired of paying a huge bill every month for cable or satellite and still watching reruns of reruns.    My goal is to eventually stop the cable or satellite, get antennae tv to watch local channels and Netflix and Hulu for every thing else.    We'll see how that goes.

So the saga of the installation....   I came home, read the instruction book page by page, got my Ipad and looked up how to install Apple TV, watched the video on You Tube and thought I was ready to install.   I plug it in, then had to figure out how to get to the HDMI port once I turned my tv on.   Got that figured out.  So I used my little apple tv remote to install....   everything came up French!!!!  I don't speak or read French.   So my friend called and walked me thru where to find language and I found English.   Cool!   Next I ended my Wi-fi password....not able to find Wi Fi....   So after 3 hours I quit for the day.   Next day I tried again - still unable to read my wi-fi.   So I called Apple Tech support - very friendly, very helpful but couldn't help because it was my wi fi speed - to slow.   So I called the phone company explained my problem and they did a few things and then said, "so sorry but you're going to have call our loyalty department and have them upgrade your wi fi speed - if we do it, it will mess up your phone and they're not in on Sundays."    So finally Tuesday afternoon I was home long enough to have them upgrade the wi fi speed and make a few other changes.    Then Wednesday I was brave enough to attempt installing Apple TV again and VOILA! (oh maybe I do know some French...or is that Spanish...whatever...LOL!) it worked!   Yay!

So, no pictures to post this time but just thought I'd pop in and say "Hey!".   I've been stalking your blogs and you all have such lovely fall displays!   Once of these day's I'll get there too!

Meanwhile, thanks for stopping by.   I hope you have a great week!



  1. Good for you Char for installing your Apple TV. I would pay to have someone do all that stuff for me if I had to but I don't watch much movies.
    Next time you stalk my blog, just stop in and say Hi.

  2. I hope you'll give us an update on the Apple TV after you've used it for awhile and say whether you're liking it or not......

  3. To make progress, we have to learn from the experience of success, the success of the success of the case, how can we say that the loser has no voice, but you can reflect through his case, summarized. The lesson is not only to learn from yourself, but to learn from others.
    When dealing with people, listen more and talk less. That's why God gave us a mouth two ears.
    Never be better than others, I never thought I was better than others, I may have more perseverance than they, in the most difficult time, they can not endure, I can cook a second, two seconds.
