This weekend BD and I ran up to Hartville to check out the new store opening of Hartville Hardware. We also shopped at Beiler's for a load of fresh fruit and veg. After many days of mild weather (great for outside projects) the temps PLUNGED from high 70s to daytime temps of just above freezing! Wow. Weather whiplash! So Saturday was a perfect day to be inside at the stores, and I bought some cool stuff for the KITCHEN. After shopping we enjoyed a late lunch at a local Chinese place. Yum!
The outing itself was fun. But wait until you see what other delights BD had in store for me.
His roommate (SS) recently bought a new iPad2. And guess who's the lucky recipient of his old iPad1? Guess. Go ahead. GUESS!
Yeehaw. C'est MOI!! :-D Oh my heart! Talk about a TREAT! The left side of my brain lit up like a halogen bulb. (SS - did you feel a disturbance in the Force when I opened the box? I sure did.)
And the timing of this gift (weather wise) -- just perfect. Cold and rainy and there's even some snow in the forecast. It's supposed to be lousy outside until the middle of the week. (Yay?)
BD helped me set it up and showed me how to buy/download APPS from the Apple APP store and made sure I was good to go. After he left that evening, I downloaded a couple of free games, just so I could learn how to use the iPad. Before I knew it, I'd played ANGRY BIRDs for, um, (really? is this right?) about 4 hours. LOL Huh. Well, like Berlitz language lessons, full IMMERSION is the best way to learn. Right? RIGHT? ;-D
Anywho, Sunday I downloaded a DOCTOR WHO game and Iost another day to .... training. (Yeah. I'm going with that. Training!)
Oh, look. I can also download a READER APP for the iPad. Oh dear....
Meanwhile - winds are roaring from the NW - gusting up to 50mph +. It's not looking good out there right now.... :-(
Luckily, there were things to do down in the (shhhh) Secret Plant Lab. ;-D
