Hi all! Happy Sunday! So… this happened last Sunday (actually it started before the weekend… it’s a long story) but it didn’t make it into last week’s post. However, it was pretty significant:
The already faulty motherboard in my iPad ended up taking a total dump. Actually, what this means is that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth no longer work, and fixing this is not an easy or economically sound thing to attempt. I can deal with no Wi-fi, but no Bluetooth means no Apple Pencil. So my very beloved iPad was kaput, now to be sold for parts.
Now I have a new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 2. I am very grateful to have received a donation from a very generous and kind commissioner which I have turned into a commission credit for them. And my husband lent me the money for the balance. But it definitely caused a ton of stress and was kind of the…whatever the opposite of “highlight of this week” means, though I guess getting a new iPad is nice, in some ways I still preferred the old one. Especially the pencil.
That aside –let’s get on with the summary!
🌈 Monday 🌈
Ian is here!! He’s smaller than I anticipated…
He perches perfectly next to my minis, though. I am pleased.
More scrapbooking supplies came in. I love, LOVE using playing cards to scrapbook.
Rosie will get comfy anywhere… she was purring tons.
🌈 Tuesday 🌈
Tuesday morning I went out for a walk and to get scrapbooking supplies. On the way back I had a little brunch at Colada:
With my new scrapbooking supplies I created a brand new scrapbook. Here are some WIP and final photos!
It’s ✨ shiny ✨
This was a lot of fun, I can’t wait to fill it up!
🌈 Thursday 🌈
Thursday was my ID appointment. I got my name change, and I finally became a registered voter! I can’t wait for my first chance to vote.
🌈 Saturday 🌈
Saturday morning I went on a quick Walmart run. I finally found my Barbasol can!! And some Jurassic World surprise eggs! AND a mini pack! It had a T. rex inside.
I can’t believe I didn’t take photos of this, but Saturday was my playdate with my friend Shelly! I set up the playroom again, and we had dino nuggets for lunch (Jurassic World, of course!):
We colored with crayons, watched Bambi and Disney’s Dinosaur, played board games, and then Shelly’s partner came over. We had burgers, drank, and played Mario Party. It was tons of fun and I can’t wait for them to visit again!
Oh yeah –in the morning my way, WAY delayed Giga order arrived… he’s very cute (and BIG):
🌈 Sunday 🌈
Today I gave an attempt at making my own açaí bowl! It didn’t turn out perfect, but it was good.
I also installed my new iPad skin and added the wallpaper to match. I love it! Now my new iPad Pro is all my own.
And that’s it for this week! I’m slowly beginning to catch up.
