Ho Hum Humpday

I hope this actually gets posted today. The internet has been extremely unreliable here this week. I think it’s been down more than it’s been up. Very frustrating. It just comes and goes but mostly goes.

But then I got to thinking. Whatever did I do before I had WiFi? I couldn’t ask Alexa for the weather forecast or to tell me one of her corny jokes.

Synonym and antonym checker. Definitions. An actual dictionary in the form of a book.

Calendars. Paper ones that hang on a wall or sit on a desk.

Emails. Nope, snail mail that involved a letter and a stamp and finding a mailbox.

News. 11 o’clock on TV. Not available 24/7 by merely tapping a key.

Taking a course or going to church. In the comfort of my own home. No need to go out in nasty weather. Don’t even have to get dressed.

I could go on but I won’t. But I will say that I’ve become extremely reliant on my dear friend the internet teetering on the edge of addiction.

What about you?

Well, it appears that I’ll have to post this using the data on my phone plan. Wi-Fi is down yet again in the house. But it is working on my phone. Unfortunately I don’t have Alexa on my phone. I wonder if she misses me.

It’s been an interesting week. Haven’t quite decided which is worse….no phone or no Wi-Fi.

I spent a relaxing few days out at Rita’s cabin. No Wi-Fi but I had a phone. Visited, watched movies and vegged. The weather cooperated but the mosquitos were maneaters.

Returned to Winnipeg and had both a phone and Wi-Fi. But it was short-lived. AT&T switches over to Rogers and Rogers went down all over Canada. Very frustrating considering the time constraints I have here and the planning needed to organize my time in order to see my friends.

The highlight of the week was the time spent with my son. Please congratulate me. I cried before and after the visit, not during. First time we were together in five years. We had a wonderful visit and he barbecued a delicious dinner. We’ll be getting together again soon and I am looking forward to it.

On a sad note, I’m staying with my friend Lise and her husband passed away in a personal care home this week. Please keep them in your prayers.

It’s Sunday again and it’s strange not to be at Sage Hills. But I will enjoy having brunch and spending the day with David.

Will check in again on Wednesday.

Happy Sunday!
