Sunday - Williamsburg Wreath 6 - Screen Shot, Three Beautiful Things
Screen Shot: Robin has taught me a new trick with the Mac - and I am practicing. Its a quick way to remember or take notes - take a screen shot.
Press down Shift and Command at the same time, hold and press 4 - a bulls-eye cursor will apprear. Use the mouse to spread it like you would to copy. When you release the mouse it will take a picture of it. The picture is on the Desktop. Voila. A Slide
of your target. Title and save. I think this trick will come in handy.
Oops. Here you can see that I took the shot before I corrected the typo in the title.
Here are Three Beautiful Things:
1. After a week my narcissus bulbs are sprouting up.
2. Last night our local family joined us for supper. When daughter Robin called from California to check in with Jim someone said, "Put her on the speakerphone."
We can do better than that. I brought down the MAC and we called her back on SKYPE. We enjoyed a good hour laughing, talking and even taking a virtual tour of her home renovations. Next time we may put the computer on a lazy susan and just swing her around with the group.
We were looking forward to Christmas on the West Coast with the entire group going to the beach together
but we scratched that plan to take care of Jim's treatment. So - we are especially grateful for these virtual gatherings.
3. A touch of Christmas. The already-lighted tree Karen assembled brightens the den.
