Missing In Action
I know I've been missing in action - but there has been a lot of action around here! Recently I told you about my computer crash. Then I told you I bought a new one. That was the beginning of frustration beyond frustration! I blamed it on Windows 8. I blamed it on me! Until I couldn't blame it on anything any longer because I had had it! I took the 'new' computer back to the store and talked to the fellows in the tech department. Their quick assessment brought news that renewed my faith in myself a bit. Bad hard drive and motherboard issues. They handed me a new computer! But first they went over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure it would work well for me. Then we paid a few dollars to have it 'optimized' so Windows 8 looks like Windows 7 and we can find our way around. Since then I've been reloading programs and rebuilding contact lists and trying to get back to some kind of normal. I still have photos to reload and programs to add. But I'm online again and it looks like I'll soon be back in business.
I have so much to tell you. I've been busy painting and redoing my office/creative studio (that's the new name for my sewing room!) I'll share photos when it all comes together. I've entertained turkeys. Yes, turkeys. No, I'm not calling my friends and family turkeys. I have photos to prove that I really did entertain wild turkeys one sunny afternoon. And there are photos of another project I promised to share with you.
So, my friends, I've been here all along. You just couldn't see me!
