I was reading the internet the other day, and people were talking about things that aren’t as good as they once were. One of the things someone mentioned was ice cream, specifically Breyers. It really caught my attention. I used to love Breyers, but now I don’t even finish the cartons I buy. There’s one in my freezer now that I got in March.
As part of the comment thread, one of the people said that Tillamook brand ice cream tastes like Breyers used to taste. Yesterday, I got some.
I got vanilla, and ate it without any toppings. The Tillamook is much better than Breyers, but it didn’t knock my socks off. Maybe I don’t like ice cream any more. If I do need to buy ice cream, I would choose to buy Tillamook. But I think I would put toppings on it.
I had an exceptionally productive day yesterday. It felt great!
First, I went to school, where I started a project I’ve been putting off for a long time. I got most of it done. I should be able to finish this morning. What a great load off my shoulders to get this done!
When I went home, I thought I’d poke around the storage closet by my kitchen a little. I thought maybe I could combine a couple of boxes and take one box out. One thing led to another, and I looked in all the boxes. I saw many wonderful toys and pictures.
Before I knew it, I had combined box contents to remove FOUR of the boxes! Amazing!
I had no idea I was going to do all the boxes, so I didn’t get a “before” picture – just an “after” one:
One of the boxes had an old external hard drive I had bought on sale. It was configured for Mac, so I could never use it. Last night I followed directions to re-format the hard drive. It used command-prompt commands. I was so scared I’d mess up my laptop. But I didn’t! And the disk works! Woo hoo!
I went to school yesterday and did a few things. It helped me start getting into the groove for school.
One thing I was particularly glad I did was to backup my school files. I still use Word and PowerPoint, so my files are on my computer instead of in the cloud. I use a lot of the same things each year, but I also tweak them and add new lessons. Since I have a backup, I don’t have to worry about losing all my hard work. Nice!
I got a Hammacher Schlemmer catalog in the mail. It’s like the Sky Mall catalog. It’s filled with wondrous and amazing products that cost a million dollars.
There was something that caught my eye. A cassette to computer recorder! Amazing! For the longest time, I still had a briefcase-sized container that had old cassettes in it. Did I keep that? I should look through my boxes to see if I still have them…
