I'm just as glad I'm inside today, having a quiet day to mark my birthday. I've had more than I care to count and it's nice just to have some time to do a few things (laundry), simmer up a pot of soup (split pea & lentil), and enjoy my present to myself.
Last week I gave myself the go ahead to replace one or two things that are really falling apart.
One is my camera. The zoom doesn't work and the battery compartment has to be taped because the clip is broken. I've had it for a couple of years - a gift from a friend who upgraded.
While I tried to replace both, it just didn't work out, (Best Buy is really a misnomer!) so replaced only one item right now.
And the winner, from BJs, is.....
A new 24" Samsung LED TV/monitor. Big, bright, and sooo streamlined. The sound quality is excellent and the picture is gorgeous. Now I can really enjoy shows like Castle and Bones. ;-D
The new TV really looks much better than the photo here. After all, I shot it with the taped up Canon. *heh*
Another thing, the old TV weighed like 500 pounds and took up a lot of room. The new slim one looks like a sculpture sitting on the tapestry bench.
So I've got sunshine, hot soup, and some good shows to catch up on.
(Gosh, David Boreanaz is WAY better looking than I thought! Hmm, going to have to watch the BBC station for some Star Trek: Next Gen shows. Can't wait to check out Patrick Stewart in HDMI. :-D )
Yep, really looking forward to getting the gardens all cleaned up and then head inside for some quality time in the comfy chair with the new remote!
