Sunday boring sunday

Well, maybe it's not boring, just off to a slow start. Had a pretty good average breakfast, and now I am just messing around on the computer for a little while before I take a long walk (that's the plan anyway),

I don't know where exactly I will go, but I know that I need to stretch my legs. I am currently just waiting for the surface to recharge, then I am hitting the bricks.

To the dump to the dump to the dump dump dump

Got rid of the broken exercise bike. We took a little trip to the south transfer station , which smelled fantastic!

I am working on typing with the screen keyboard . It's a little strange, there isn't much in the way of touch feedback. The little click sounds are important, since you can't really tell what exactly is going on.

I guess netter cool it on the blogging for today. I don't have much to say right now.

Another day of gardening!

We meandered into the work party a bit late. We got a late start and indulged in dome pancakes before making our way down to the garden. We've been working on re-mulching the trees that are in the strip between the street and the sidewalk. We put in a good hour each making sure it was done properly with cardboard underneath to suppress the weeds. Our plot is going like gangbusters , plenty of growth on all the plants. We harvested a little kale and some beet greens for lunch.

I am not so sure about the split keyboard typing on the surface pro 3. It is just a tad awkward.

Got a pro 3!!


By chance I just happened to get upgraded from a surface pro2 to a surface pro 3. The 2 had a small issue where the mouse pointer would disappear at random. The tech at the store could not figure out what the deal was, so they gave me a new one. The only bummer part is that there are several adobe apps which I will need to re-install. I don't know if I was really using them that much or at all, but they are nice to have if needed, ya know?


That protection plan has already paid for itself after only 3 months or so that I have had the surface. Anybody thinking about buying anything Microsoft , definitely get the protection plan and they will treat you like royalty there. I have to say, I was skeptical about Microsoft's products, but after a fair amount of use, I am starting to be a convert. Sure, they are a little more expensive than a lot of free-er offerings like Google, but if you actually do pay for what you are using, it's pretty top notch. I guess I should expect that? Every interaction I have had with MS's customer service has been a very positive experience. I'll stop with the praising now.

TIme to get some gardening done on this sunny Saturday.
