I Will Get This Right...

I've spent most of this afternoon on some basic technological stuff and I'm THIS close to losing my mind.

I finally got my little boom box hooked up to my desktop computer (thank you Radio Shack, I have the right connector) and it must be right because my sound check works. Yay! I found some free software online to use to record files on my computer. That's what's not working for me. I've rechecked my settings too many times and still can't get sound recorded. Time to step away, I'm too riled up right now! grrrrr

I've really been meaning to do this for a very long time. I have cassette tapes of my girls from "infant years" on. First words, baby babble, singing, etc., it's so cute to listen to but I want them on CD now. Taping them was just another weird thing I did besides having a video camera in front of their faces most of their lives. They just LUV me doing all this stuff. Anyway, I recently saw a "cassette to cd" converter in JCPenney's catalog for $150.00, (the way things are going today I may just buy the darn thing) so I figured it's about time to at least try the cheapest way. I just don't think my brain is fried enough ya know? Gotta give it more pressure.


Not a whole lot of knitting going on. My pain scale has been high for quite a few weeks now and it's just been something that hasn't been much fun for me. That's one reason I thought I'd finally try to get to another "project" like working on the tapes. (Oh Joy!)
I've been slowly knitting on this:



Just a Noro Scarf. I'm not even sure what colorways I'm using, just stuff that was buried back in the stash. Honestly, it's a fun knit for someone who needs something easy and relaxing, but I think I would've liked darker colors. The k1, p1, with wool is easy on my hands right now. I may even finish it one day.... I do wish the cat hair floating around here wouldn't stick to it like a magnet so bad tho!

Thank You Kay for posting! I'm terrible, I read your blog regularly, (I suscribe) but I'm terrible at commenting! :O(

Now your Noro scarf was pretty!!!! I need some more blue in mine I think... :)

Dawn does Cosmo shed much? I swear, my longer haired cat never shed as much as these cats we have now do! Ugh! It's EvERYWHERE! And the Noro sucks it up like a vaccuum! hahaha!

I had to take time to think about that meme too, but you're a fast reader (and I know you just got some books! LOL!). I know you'll think of some really good ones. Check out Anna's blog, man she has some really interesting ones she's reviewed lately...I'm never going to catch up...

No my short hair cats have always shed more than the long hair ones. Once in awhile the long hair cats will leave a clump but thats easy to clean up whereas the short hair one is all over flying! I did the MEme thing!

Very nice scarf! The colors are pretty!

That tech stuff gives me a headache just thinking about it!
