Thursday Thoughts: The Latest, Greatest Blogging Tool

After last week's post, which proved that I'm just a bit out of touch with technology, my son gave me this idea for a blog post.  I told him I'd use it.


Are you tired of misplacing your quill or finding an empty ink well?  Fortunately, the latest invention--the "typewriter"--will put an end to those frustrations.  With a simple touch of a button, letters will appear on paper.  Lines advance with a quick push of the return bar.  A cheery "ding" accompanies the motion.

Typewriters will make blogging so easy!  Whenever an idea pops into mind, just sit down and start typing.   With any luck, someone will soon invent something to correct mistakes.

  4. There was nothing but manual typewriters in my high school typing class. Each mistake on speed test took 5 wpm off your total, so I wound up typing negative words per minute. Dropped the class at semester when the teacher started talking about carbon paper.

    I'm so old....

  7. Love it :)
    I've still got my first typwriter, bought from my brother when I was 14 (I'm nearly 52 now), and it still works!
    My Silver Reed is as precious to me as a writer as anything I can think of, and is always there, even if the electric goes! Lol

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
