2. I'm surprised, but my old D-Link 'wireless router' is working again (will wonders never cease?) and last night 'Chris' (of Time Warner Cable's internet tech support) patiently helped me 'reconfigure my cable modem' ... so when Vinnie from Dell Tech Support calls this afternoon (after this morning's Movie Maker class) perhaps he'll be able to deal with the as yet unexplained 'faulty WLAN card' messages. I also plan to ask why the old HP Photosmart 7150 printer no longer shows up in the Control Panel and isn't recognized when I plug it in. Keep your fingers crossed for me. My sister will be here at 2pm. We're headed to Origins at South Coast Plaza where we're getting free facials after which we'll have an early dinner at BJs in honor of HER birthday ;-)
3. Although I shared stormy skies recently, our Southern California skies here at the beach change often and are usually a beautiful blue ... even when clouds hover and/or drift by. Here are three views of the same set of three palms on my block.
As I've mentioned previously, sunrise is my favorite time of day ... and if you missed them (and time permits) you might enjoy early morning views I shared from this week (see #12 in Beauty, Joy, Sunrise, Reflections & Quotes and/or #5 in morning Musings).
4. I've received several awards lately from a variety of sources but haven't had time to acknowledge them or to share ... so I've decided to do that here since I came across these while looking for Susanne's new Fave Five logo. Lest I lose track of them again ... I'd like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Martha of Menagerie, Pam of Mom's Mutterings and Ellie Vellie for these awards ...
5. Since I didn't have time to devote to the 'inspiration video' I wanted to create this week in part two of my Friday Movie Maker class (see #7 in Sunday's post at Sacred Ruminations), I've gathered photos of Molly (regular & resized versions) to bring with me with morning so perhaps I'll be able create something of interest to share on one of my blogs after all and I'll learn what I need to know to create some original 'inpirational videos' in the weeks or months to come.
but methinks it bears repeating ...

so I'll be catching up on blog visits
over the weekend again.
Hope you've had a wonderful week!
