The month is almost over (how did THAT happen) and it looks like summer will be the season coming in like a lion! Nasty thunderstrom last night and it's so WET around here. Hot, humid and mosquitos! YUCK! Perfect stitching weather!

SO do you have any progress to report or any new goals? We'd love to hear about them!

Last week's goals:

Buy/plant forget-me-not seeds - Oops, forgot all about them!

Work on Birth Sampler - Still haven't touched it ;-(

Work on SF Panorama - Coming along quite nicely - might even be finished by next week!

Walk - Only a couple of times, but I did it!

See "Water for Elephants"? - Done - not as good as the book, but still pretty good.

My desktop PC is down & I'm using my laptop.

Something tells me you aren't really keen on those forget-me-knots or you wouldn't keep forgetting to buy the seeds!

Sorry aout the need to postpone that WA trip but I know what you mean --- sometimes, things at home take priority.

Enjoy your massage!

Now why is the laptop harder to type on than the desktop, if I may ask? Different keyboard setup? I totally understand becasue when I switch between my laptop (trackpad) and desk top) mouse) it takes me a while to acclimate.

Perhaps you could find a way to attach your desktop keyboard to the laptop? My Mac will let me do that --- to the USB port --- just never have tried it.

I think it's the angle of my hands.

I'd forgotten about your wrists --- you are probably right --- hand angle is a big issue... As much as I like my laptop, I do feel the effects

Hope you all came through that last batch of storms OK. We spent all day yesterday with LOUD thunder and lightning, HEAVY downpours (which meant we were under a severe thunderstorm warning from about Noon on through 10 PM) and there were some places with golf-ball-sized hail and tornado watches/warnings. Luckily, all we got was what we used to call in Florida Frog Choking rain, BLACK skies and lots of wind.

But today is supposed to be a repeat of yesterday, especially if that front skews a bit northward... SKies are already grey adn lowering...
