We picked up Mozart’s ashes today.
Then, we went for a ride. Not a long ride; only to Augusta. We walked around Lowe’s and did our bit for morale by asking a passing Lowe-worker where the roof-rakes might be found. Not one to be had in the store, we were told, in-between gasps of laughter. Possibly not one to be had in greater New England.
After we had sowed our seeds of merriment, we went to Best Buy, where I finally succumbed and purchased the Shiny, the Canon PowerShot SX700HS 30X with the Bundled Goodies. It’s about half as thick as my venerable PowerShot 120IS 10X, and weighs just about the same. The challenge here is going to be remembering not to just stick it into a pocket and forget it’s there.
In theory, it does all kinds of sweet things, none of which I’ve figured out, yet, including sending pictures via wifi. What an age we live in.
Stopped at the grocery on the way home, because we are once again about to go under a — wait for it! — Winter Storm Watch. The theory is that we may received from 5-11 inches of snow from Wednesday afternoon until Thursday afternoon.
After that, we won’t have to deal with any more snow until Saturday night into Sunday.
My plan for the rest of the week is to take the laptop, and retire with it and Alliance of Equals to the couch and do nothing else — except shovel snow, of course (and tomorrow’s my turn to make dinner, but that’ll be meatballs (already made) and rotinis, with gravy. Easy-peasy.). The Kid Coons aren’t entirely sure that they Approve of the laptop, which takes up precious lap-space that could more fruitfully be occupied by a coon cat. Sprite, in particular, believes that she can too fit in the space between me and the keyboard.
Just for the record?
For those who were breathlessly awaiting my impression of Jupiter Ascending — I had a good time with it. Mind you, I don’t get to see many movies, so that probably pre-disposes me to being amused and pleased by those I do see, but to my way of thinking, I had three winners in a row: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero6, and Jupiter Ascending.
What did you do today that was exciting?
