Howdy ya'll! Yes, I dropped off the planet as far as blogging is concerned. Not by choice mind you, but forced into hiding after my computer took a nose dive never to recover again. Poor old thing. Had to shoot to put it out of it's misery. :0(
By choice I did take my time to figure out what I wanted next when it came to shopping for another one. I spent a lot of time searching...and researching. Finally - three days ago I made a decision. So yesterday I brought the new baby home...and I'm sooooooooo in love!!!!
Being old and nearly blind, I chose one with a VERY large screen and fabulous high resolution. We're a perfect match. But it's very light and easy for me to tote around when I need to do some 'pooter' totin'. (My sister calls a computer 'the pooter'. It stuck. Whatever...)
So now I'm in a situation where I can do the blogger thing again...thank God! And the cherry on top of this deal is I was also able to upgrade my camera! WOOOOOOO-HOOOOOO!!!!! Now when I wanna post pictures, they'll actually be visible and not all grainy and dark and stuff. Imagine that! Who da thunk it????!!!!!
While I was without 'real' computer access (I did use my phone a lot during this time to kinda stay in touch with the nets), I did stay very busy in the creativity department. It's been great. My sister is now a week overdue having her baby and my focus has been getting some things made for her and new baby...a girl. Oh what fun it's been doing the girlie stuff! I have lots of pics of all those things I made. I will post those soon. I've done some other things too, not baby related. But the caveat here has been that I broke my left wrist a couple of months ago and it's been a bear trying to get knitting and crocheting done. But where there's a will, there's a way...and by gosh I worked at making a way!!!!! So I got a few things made and very satisfied with what I turned out.
So, with all the upgrades, improvements and whatever in the high tech department, I should be good to go for awhile. It's good to be back and hope I get to stick around indefinitely. Looking forward to catching up with all your blogs and what you've been up to the past couple of months. Will get back to posting the regular features...and hopefully improve on those and add some new stuff too.
It's good to be back. Have a knit pickin' good day ya'll!
