I found myself spending all my free time organizing my different projects and having no time to work on them so I ordered and got the “neat desk”.  It is now installed and I am trying to teach myself how to use it to it’s fullest advantage.  It looks like it will do everything I want and more if I just learn how to run it.  The tutorial videos do not work on my computer, my problem not theirs, and there is no printed manual to refer to.  Being an exteacher I need a printed page to follow step by step as I learn a new skill so I am printing off each tutorial which is the manual and will start scanning my material today now that I have read how to do it.  It is like have a new office with three file cabinets and unlimited folders to put things into.  And the nice part about it I can find anything with the search engine and not have to go hunt up the pages or information myself by hand.  BUT it will take a long time to get everything filed into it and put into the right folders so I can pull it up when I need it.  I think it will be great for all the research information I have gotten for my Web books as it is getting impossible to remember what I found and where it is when I need it again.  I can also file all my recipes I have been gathering and making up as well as all the tips on growing vegetables and keeping the animals and bug out of the gardens.  Must get started filing.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
