17th June 2022 Dr Beena
Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I wrote my thoughts. I painted these beets on my sketchbook more as a practice, but it turned out pretty good😊. My challenges were to paint the beets as round structures and the leaves with some curves. I was delighted with what I got. What a “beetiful” painting that was😊.
Now two days ago, my laptop reminded me to update Microsoft which I did and went about my chores. When I returned to my computer, there was a message asking me to upgrade to Windows 11. I was not comfortable with that. So, I skipped that action. Unfortunately, soon after that, I could not listen to any sound from the news or you-tube channels. I thought, ah-ha, this is Microsoft’s way to make me upgrade and I finally upgraded, and yet there was no change. I did some troubleshooting of the audio setting (now that is very courageous of me).
The next day I took my laptop to the computer shop. The technician quickly diagnosed it as a speaker problem and needed three weeks for the part. My heart fell☹. He went on about how even though I may buy a good brand, the parts are cheap. To be without my laptop is like being on life support☹. I told him that all this happened soon after I updated Microsoft. It was only then that he paid attention and remarked that he would take a look at it and maybe sort it out.
By the same evening, I got my laptop back. I am glad the technician listened to my little history about how it happened. It made a huge difference; otherwise, I wouldn’t be writing this story😊.
If only technology was as easy as painting these beets. I was under duress till I got my laptop. I am not sure how many of you have technophobia as I do. I hope you can share your thoughts😊. Till then, happy “beetiful” weekend.
