Cajun Corner - Vol. 5, No. 51

Cajun Corner – Vol. 5, No. 51 – October 20, 2013


Bon Jour!  Welcome to Cajun Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.

Does anyone know how we got to “No. 51” when there are 2 months remaining in 2013 and I send this e-newsletter out weekly?  I think I may have misnumbered something along the line.  Oh well, I’ve never been very conventional.

For sometime now George and I have discussed getting new computers and leaving one set at the studio and the other set for use at home.  Is that the height of laziness or what?  There are some valid reasons, though.  One is to make our computers last longer and to help back up.  Also, if one goes out on us, we will have another.  After last week’s computer debacle it became apparent that now is the time to get the new computers and we did.  They are laptops and came with Windows 8.  They were very easy to set up.  Windows 8 is very different than Windows 7.  I think we have figured it out now.

The new laptops only have 2 USB plugs.  Guess we didn’t check to see how many USB plugs there were before purchasing.  I need about 7 of them.  Then we purchased USB hubs.

The new laptops do not have a CD/DVD drive.  So, we purchased that.  Luckily our Office Professional 2003 was able to install.  Now I have to find and figure out how to install QuickBooks 2011.  I bet I have to buy the new QuickBooks before it is all over.  Then the embroidery programs will need to be installed.   We still have more computing to do.

The external hard drive that I purchased and did not work is becoming a thorn in my side.  I can’t seem to get the people at Western Digital to respond to me and the extra warranty that I purchased from Amazon won’t let me file a claim until I send my receipt.  The only receipt that I have is an email and I cannot seem to get their email address to accept it. 

Basically it was another week spent working on computers.

Jury duty has been postponed for another week.

We have been embroidering every day.  George is working on some really cute Halloween towels.  I worked on a peacock; then a huge fleur de lis sham; and, now I’m working on more embroidery on my curtains.

Etsy changed some things, too.  Nothing changed that is really noticeable to shoppers.  It was more background items.  Now we have an “About” page. 

Yesterday I attended a beautiful wedding on the beach.  I don’t recall ever attending a beach wedding.  It was beautiful and fun.  No shoes.  Since the mother of the bride is our krewe member and dance teacher, you have to know that everything involved dancing.  Oh what a fun time that was.  Everyone was still partying when I had to leave.

Have a wonderful week
