Early to bed, maybe

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Sun Jun 18, 2006 3:05 am

We got up at 5 am this morning and went to the flea market. It was a beautiful morning. The sun was just coming up over the horizon when we left home. It was 54F. It quickly warmed things up and it was in the mid-90's by eleven am. We did fairly well and came home at 1:30 this afternoon. We stopped and put gas in the truck and since I served notice that when I got a job I wasn't cooking on Saturday's anymore, we stopped and got chicken with potato salad and rolls for supper. I got a part time job at the Prescott Valley Library. I will be working on the circulation desk. My job will consist of check in and check out and shelving returned books. Keeping books in order and issuing library cards, also. I will work Mon-Thurs evenings until 9pm and all day on Saturday. I will keep helping Dan with the summer reading program since that will be in the morning on Tuesdays. I will not work with Dan on Fridays now. Friday and Sunday will be my days off so I will have things I need to do. Of course, I have all day most days to do things because I don't have to leave for work until about 5:15 pm. It takes me about half an hour to drive up to Prescott Valley. DR is going to go up with me on Tuesday and Wednesday this week because he has some errands to run and no sense in going twice in one day. I will go to work and he will do his errands and then come over to the library to pick me up. I think it will work out okay. We will have to eat early though. I have gotten into the habit of not eating until 6 or 6:30 in the evening. We are thinking of having our main meal at noon and having a light supper. I think that will work if I remember to start the meal before it is time to eat. We get up early so I need to eat when I get up instead of doing all sorts of things and then going back to eat.
Before we moved to Arizona, we used to come to visit my mom and dad. They were retired. They would get up and make coffee and watch the news and go start the water going on the plants and it would be 9 to 9:30 before they had breakfast. I always wondered how they could be up three hours before breakfast. Well, now we are retired. We still get up early and DR watches the news and I check Gardenstew on the computer and then, I go outside with Chance to check out the garden, etc and it is 9 to 9:30 before we get around to eating. Then, since I need about four hours at least between meals we don't have lunch until after two and then supper doesn't get made until after 6 and I've just gotten into some bad habits and I will have to get out of them.
Monday, I will work four hours during the day and I will start the evening hours on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it. It's been awhile since I worked for pay and I am looking forward to that too. We have plans for some of the money but have reserved some for "mad" things. I wonder what I will buy first. Is mad money to be used on things you need or things you want? What if the things you need are also things you want? It's going to be a tough choice, I think. The good thing is paydays fall on my day off so I can get a good start on the spending.

Change of subject: my computer had a couple of glitches this week. I don't know what else to call them. I called Dan and he came and looked at places that I did not even know were on the computer. He checked this and that and finally fixed it. He didn't know what was wrong but could figure out how to fix it from how it was acting. On my own, I would have made it worse or really crashed it. He says he would have to be able to read all those technical parts to find out what was wrong but he can figure how to fix it without knowing what is wrong. I wish I had that kind of knowledge. DR doesn't like computers much and has no desire to learn technical things. I think computers came along when we were too old to figure things like that. The boys used them from the time they first came out with personal computers. The first one didn't even have a modem. We had to buy one and hook it up. Then, there wasn't much you could do with it. Slowly, the internet evolved until there is so much information out there that no one will ever know all that is there. Dan introduced me to a program called StumbleUpon. We put it on the toolbar. It takes you to random sites depending on what you programmed as your likes and dislikes. I can turn it on and off as the case warrents. BUT, for each site it takes you to, a cookie appears on your computer. You need to daily check for cookies and delete the ones you don't want. I think maybe I did something today when I was doing virus, spybot and adaware and defrag and moving cookies. I do things the same way everytime but sometimes I think it doesn't always come out the same. I think it's good that Dan lives close or the computer repairmen would be taking all of my "mad" money.

Congrats on the job Dooley. Does this mean you will be spending less time with us here? :( Only kidding.

I have StumbleUpon installed as well and it's great if you have some time to kill.

Regarding cookies they are not dangerous to your machine. They are only small text files that can only be viewed by the website that sent them in the first place. For example GardenStew sets a small cookie on your machine when you visit but this is only to allow the site to show which posts / blog entries are new to you and also to allow you to sign in automatically. They really are nothing to be afraid of.
