I Still Hate Computers

Why do I always have to encounter problems at the computer?  Huh? Why me?  I'm going along my merry way, checking my pages, shop, blogs, surfing around reading interesting things, and when I'm ready to write up my blog post BAM! I can't upload photos.  Nope.  Not happening.  Why why why?!

(Stomping my feet and holding my breath).

It's okay, what can I do about it?  Absolutely nothing.  Just like the weather, all you can do is talk about it.    So that's what I'm going to do, because I can't upload to this blog now.  Lovely Blogger is disabling uploads for two hours due to maintenance issues.  It's supposed to begin at 5PM Pacific Daylight Time.  What's that got to do with little old me here in New York?  Am I wrong, but isn't it 5PM here before it becomes 5PM over there on the west coast?  Huh?  Is it me?  What?

Besides the weather turning cloudy and cold, my day was pretty quiet.  Couple of small things on the list. Like yesterday, I decided to add 'Paint for 20 minutes' at the end of the list and that's what I wanted to do.  It felt so good yesterday I thought about painting all day today.

Again, I had a plan and followed through.  Pretty good for me!  Had my leaves, my rocks, added my apple and set the timer for 20 minutes.  When I was done I took a couple of photos to upload here.  No luck.  Server rejected.  Waaaahhhhh!  I tried again, and again the same notification.  Now, I think I'm in time before the maintenance thing begins, but no, it won't work.  Blah.

Just take my word for it, my little watercolor painting came out nicely.  I feel good about it, but I can't show it to you.  One more time for good measure....nope, no good.

I'm sorry.  I was so happy I painted something and finished it.  Maybe I gave myself the evil eye, a jinx, a canary?  I will try again tomorrow.  Get back to you then...


  1. Dora, Blogger is doing maintenance that's why you can't upload and that's why I can't either for TMC. lol

    It should be done soon I hope.

  2. my old faithful printer seems to be giving up the ghost - always something. Love your 20 minute pieces. Will have to give it a try myself tomorrow, which I am promising to myself for painting. Gardening finally done for this season, now to paint!

  3. I did the same thing. We'll all be posting tomorrow! It will be a posting party!!!!

  4. Hi, Dora. Speaking of computers... Frustrating. The whole world is frustrating sometimes. Computer are a blessing and a curse, aren't they.

  5. Remember how things were done before computers? Was life easier? Now computers are a must and life is the same just with more buttons to press! Ahh, technology! LOL On with the blogging!!!

  6. Saw your painting on facebook (I guess it is good for something) and it looks great!

  7. Yes Sheryl, there always has to be Plan "B"!
