Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.
This post has been the hardest post I ever had to write using my computer- nothing bad personally – just frustrating computer problems.
My MacBook Pro is going on 7 years old and it has been showing its age for the last year, doing many quirky things – most that I could deal with.
I was waiting for the new 14″ MacBook Pro to come out to replace it. The new Macbooks are finally out and I bought one the day they were announced, but I still don’t have it since I had a customization added. This, plus supply chain delays pushed out when it would be delivered to my doorstep,
While I have been waiting for it, my current computer keyboard is slowly becoming dysfunctional – the space bar has a mind of it’s own and the letter “O” stopped working.
I never realized how many words have the letter “O” in them until this week!!!!
I have sprayed it with canned air, tried a few other fixes and even removed the letter tile to reveal the spring mechanism, but the letter “O” finally gave out
To get this post written, I uploaded the photos using my computer and then had to use my phone to write the post. Not a good thing for my 62 year old eyes. :-)
The good news – my latest tracking email said my new 14″ MacBook Pro should arrive on Wednesday – YAY!!!
What kind of computer do you use – a desktop, laptop, Mac or a PC? Has it lasted a long time?

This house tour.
I don’t need this, but I am so drawn to white-faced Roman numeral clocks for reasons that I don’t even understand. I have many, both small and large in almost every room in my house. Maybe in a past life, I lived across from a clock tower. :-)

The cutest clothespin dolls to make. Seeing them has me thinking of the many other ways you can dress them using repurposed items.
No more ugly trash cans. This DIY came out amazing!
I walk almost everyday, even in the rain, which made me want to test these Loom 100% Waterproof Sneakers. I am sold!
Even when I stuck my foot in the lake for a minute, the sneakers stayed dry, no more mushy sneakers when out in the rain, walking on wet grass or when washing the car. :-) Plus, they are super comfy and stylish.
You can find out more about these rainproof shoes at: www.loomfootwear.com. I was told to order one size up from my normal shoe size and I did. They fit perfectly.
Something To Think About
Why don’t we have expiration dates in other areas of our lives besides consumer goods?
