Back, but only for a minute...

Yikes, I've been away too long! LOL! (Three whole days!) We've had some serious Internet issues the last couple of days. My husband has been swamped at work, so he didn't have time to work his usual magic and get it up and running and back to full speed. I finally decided to take matters into my own hands when I had a shipping label to print up. After calling him at work, I figured out which piece of machinery was the modem (there are so many little boxes where our network connections are, and I can never remember the modem, the router, the whatever, etc. etc. etc. - it's a sea of little contraptions, blue lights, and wires down there!)

I got lucky. I just unplugged the modem for ten seconds, plugged it back in, and I was back on-line. Well, now I know what to try first if this ever happens again, which it will.

Anyway, because my connectivity has been spotty, I haven't been accomplishing much with my stores! I did manage to get a couple of new things listed on eBay (my auctions are looking a litte sparse, which isn't good when you have over 600 skeins waiting to be listed!!!)

I have some fabulous bamboo/wool/silk yarn I just got in. One color is listed - I have a few more to add. I want to make something with some of it, but I've never used fingering yarn before!!! Gotta start looking up some patterns!

I may not be able to get to much more today than I have in the last couple of days because I have errands to run, packages to wrap up and send, etc. Plus, our Borders bookstore is closing :( which I'm very bummed out about, but they're starting to reduce their prices and I'd like to see if I can find a few books that I can read this summer...of course, who has time to read anymore??? The only time I do is when I'm working out on the Nordic Trac. I've gotten used to reading with my head bobbing around all over the place, lol.

Have a Happy Friday, everyone!
