Sometimes new things can be scary. Call it my age or the fear of change that makes the "new" bring angst. Recently I had to purchase another phone because my old was not keeping a charge. I felt comfortable with the one I was using. Certainly didn't want to have to replace it. In today's world though, we all have to stay connected. Hmm makes me wonder how twenty five years ago one land line was all that was required for the average family. Now everyone including the kids need their own personal device.
Since I'm far from techie the challenge of setting up a new phone made me quite anxious. Bless the young folks at the public library.
They helped get it working. (Let us "oldies" appreciate this new upcoming generation - they just may be our life - line to living in the 21st century!)
I would much rather walk through these brambles than to figure out how to dump a contact list from one phone to another.
Keeping to the same thought, have been procrastinating in buying a new computer. Yesterday with hubby's help made another new plunge. We are finally getting Windows 11 (been stuck with 7 and have managed to miss all the updated ones in between.) Here again someone younger is getting us all set up. He is a tech at the store and his expertise came with the package deal. Hooray!
Along with this new computer, high speed internet is being installed in our home this week. The young man who is doing the job assured us that he will show us how to connect all our technical equipment once he has completed his work. So thankful for all those younger people who are willing to come along side those of us who at times need "new things".
Speaking of "new" have discovered a canvas called "Yes" that works with all media including watercolor. A bit different that painting on paper but am enjoying working on this type of surface.
Well hope you will share anything new in your lives that may be a bit scary!
Have a blessed week.
