I'm Laptop Challenged

OK....
I admit it, I have no skill with this laptop!
I'm typing away, I look up at the screen and
my text is all jumbled up or completely gone.
It took me 30 minutes to write a simple Email last night.
My, oh my, very frustrating..

Things have been very weird around here of late but I'm
embracing the changes and trying to go with the flow!

 NOT!!!
Read,

  Terry is a control freak and does not
like change unless it is initiated by her!!!

 Anyway....
My shower curtain of 8 years really needed to go
but me being the frugal (cheapo) person I am
wanted something really cool at little to no cost.

I was browsing the recycle box at work
 and found a catalogue from Garnet Hill.
(Pricy clothing and home decor).
Spied this shower curtain ($78.00) and knew
I could replicate it at less than a third of the cost. 
 
Pricy Catalogue Curtain!

I already had the fabric,
the pink fabric was from a secondhand store score
and the peace sign fabric was purchased a few months ago at
Wally World for $1.50 a yard.
The floral top and bottom fabric
are leftovers from I don't know what!

That thing hanging in the middle is a lei
 from my sister's b-day party!
My Version
Close Up

I found a liner at Ross for $3.99 so now I'm good to go.
 Ivy and Spike like it,
but....
No Face, Jamaica and Voodoo Girl are noncommittal.
What do you think?
 
Till next time,
Bonjour

A great way to use up lots of fabric. I should tackle my fabric pile,but I'm loving the time I'm spending in my yard and garden at the moment.Maybe this Winter. My lawn chairs all need new cushion covers.

Hi Sue- It's way too hot here for gardening.
Not too bad in the AM but once it's past noon look out! it's all we can do to keep the fruit trees alive.

Steve heard on the radio this morning that we are going to be having rolling blackouts, apparently the demand for power is just too great.
We just installed a programmable thermostat and believe me we are being frugal with the inside temp.
Enjoy your yard, it looks great.

I said to myself, "self, that sorta looks like Terry... I saw your soap display and then I really thought it was you and then realized it was you!! How fun to see you on someone else's page! You look beautiful!

Jamie
