Hey, Ya’ll! Welcome to Simply Paradise & Haven!
Well… What’s that quote about best plans? “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it.” Yeah, that pretty much happened to me this week. I had a full week of posts that I was going to put up, especially as I’m currently home due to the Covid-19 virus cutting down on my business as few people are traveling. However, Microsoft decided to update my Edge, which was my primary browser, WITHOUT asking me first and lost every single one of my favorites and saved bookmarks. As such, I’ve had to spend the last few days, off and on, restoring all of my favorites from my older computer to Chrome on my new computer that I use for everything and try to remember other favorites I’d saved in the two years since I got my new computer. With the favorites, went the site for this blog and Canva and all my resources so I had to restore those. Needless to say, I am not happy with Microsoft right now. I’ve changed back to Chrome, which is what I used on my old laptop as it’s a Vista while I was using Edge on my new laptop as it’s Windows 10. I stopped using my old laptop for anything but writing as the software was continually becoming outdated.
However, as I don’t have many pet sitting jobs right now, I’ll have time to be posting so look forward to that. I’ve got some planned that I will be writing.
But as I don’t have many pet-sitting jobs right now and my roommate is currently working from home as her job sent her and as many coworkers as they could to work at home rather than the offices, this is taking a little getting used to as we only have one office that we’re currently sharing. We’re finding our groove though. It’s just taking some time as her work demands a lot of phone calls while mine, outside of Paula’s Pet Paradise, requires a lot of moving around for me for the baking, crafting, writing, and the like.
Now, we’re get onto the writing prompts for this week that I’m sure is why you’re here. Friday, provided I get everything back together, I’ll have a travel post for you from my trip back in September. Yes, I know. It’s been ages since that trip but I hadn’t had time to sit down, download the pictures, organize them and write about it. Well, I certainly have the time now and since there’s little traveling going on, this will give us inspiration once Covid-19 passes and we’re leaving our homes once more. We will get past this, we just need to stick together, metaphorically speaking at least since social distancing is currently the thing, and power through just like we’ve survived other disasters.
Have fun! I added in an extra one to make up for lack of posts this week and for extra inspiration fitting the extra time a lot of us have.
Stay Safe and Stay Healthy!
