Thanksgiving & Black Friday
Thanksgiving went fine. Nothing went horribly wrong and I did eat some great pie. Bob Evans makes great pumpkin and pecan pies (which is what we contributed to thanksgiving at David's mom's house). Then we went to his sister's house and had yummy apple pie. It was homemade and delicious (probably explains why I ate two pieces). The best part of the day was going to the Ft. Pierce Jetty to take pictures with my camera. I was like a mad woman snapping pictures. We're talking like 300 pictures, so needless to say I am not going to post them all, but here are a few of them.
After some major indecision on my part, we finally got up and headed out for some early shopping on Black Friday. I'll admit that we didn't get the two things we really wanted (an Xbox 360 and a TV for the family room). However, we did get a few good buys. I finally got a replacement for my much too full external hard drive and a copy of Photoshop Elements 7. We also got a GPS for our car. We've been using the GPS on David's phone and have to come to realize how useful it is, so we bought one for the car. David picked up a pair of noise canceling headphones, but I may have to misplace those. lol They are way too effective.
Of course I'd really like someone to explain why I only have access to 698 gb of my 750 gb hard drive. I understand that you always lose a few gigs to formatting etc, but that is a lot of loss. I am really in need of an explanation. Regardless, I am now in the process of moving my stuff from my old drive to the new one, so that David can have the old one.
When I am done with the moving of files, then I will get PSE 7 installed. I still plan to use Gimp for most of the work I do on my layouts, but I'll be using PSE 7 for those things that Gimp just can't do.
Okay, I think I've talked enough. Hope everyone has a great Saturday. (As if there are tons of people reading my blog. lol)
