Good morning everyone !
Come in - come in - it's freezing out there !
They're calling for -18 degrees celcius today tomorrow AND Sunday - ( that's like 1.5 degrees in " American " )
AND I'M FREAKING OUT !
We've been so spoiled this year with temps - winter basically started in January and it's been mild.
But it's winter.
And Montreal is in Canada.
And Canada is cold in the winter.
And we're already mid February so it's almost over anyway, right?
I posted a couple of photos on instagram on Wednesday ..............
A before and after of a wall in the kitchen that I painted black.
I did it while John was out for the day.
He came home.
He sat down at the kitchen table and looked at the wall ( well into space really but in the general direction of the wall )
And didn't notice anything.
I asked him to make me a tea - because the kettle is right where the black wall is - he made it and never noticed anything.
I made supper and called him in and he sat and ate and chatted away without noticing it.
Suzan says - I mentioned on Instagram that you wouldn't notice the change in the kitchen
John says - What the hell is Instant Grandma?
Suzan says - IT'S INSTAGRAM - how on earth did you hear Instant Grandma?
John says - WHAT IS IT?
Suzan says - You take photos and post them online
John says - I thought that was Blogging?
Suzan says - Different - it's completely different - anyway I PAINTED THE WALL BLACK AND YOU DIDN'T NOTICE !!!
John says - Oh ! I like it ! It looks great !
But I don't know how great he thinks it looks if I had to point it out to him.
So.................new computer last week and I've already had a virus that slipped through the anti virus thingamajig.
A week old.
My son in law fixed it because I'm too stupid to do that.
A new phone last week as well which I'm loving.
But that new camera I bought last summer?
Still can't use it.
It's hard for a brain to adapt to technology when all it really wants to do is go back to the 60's and have a pretty princess phone on my end table.
We had this one in the kitchen
And this one in the hallway on a telephone table
Those push buttons were the epitome of new age and the bonus was you could kill anyone who broke into your home by throwing the phone at them !
To be honest with you my brain stopped fully understanding the mechanism after this one
Of course I've updated over the years but I don't " get " everything the new phones do.
Our business line ends with 666
2,666 have me in circles - Google plus
Page views for a day read 2666 way too often for me to be comfortable with
So whenever I do something stupid ( which is at least once a day ) I can say - quite literally
" the devil made me do it "
Like Flip Wilson's Geraldine !
You all have a wonderful weekend - this Instant Grandma's off to see Evan today :)
