Last Saturday, my trusty laptop just stopped working, just like that, STOPPED! I've been off the computer and away from the internets until just right now, with the exception of dropping in occasionally to post a little on the FB and check my mail. It was kind of nice and kind of not, but today I took a huge, deep breath and went out early into the cold and rain and picked up a new to me, gently used MacBookPro for a bundle of money, but a whole lot less than new. At the same time, my husband got a new iMac to upgrade his studio, too. Yes, we're in debt for it, which is not where I wanted to be, but at the same time, it will really make working go faster and better around here.
It was surprising to me how much I missed being able to tap into all the free and fast information available with the computer, but somehow I managed to enjoy finishing up a long-delayed knitting project in time for cold days and nights, and actually read a book!
