I’m Back!


I’ve missed all of you!  Last week, my computer stopped working.  Out of the blue, after barely two years of use, it just quit.  The nice guy at the computer repair shop advised me that it would be more cost effective to start fresh with a new computer. He could try to fix my old one, for a couple hundred dollars, but he couldn’t guarantee that it would do any good. 

It frustrates me.  Two years is hardly what I would call an acceptable lifespan, but what could I do?  So I bought a new computer.  And it’s good to be back.  I’ll be making the rounds of all of your wonderful blogs and getting caught up as soon as I can, but in the mean time, I thought I’d share a photo of one of my mums.  With the mild weather we have been having, my mums just keep blooming and blooming.  I’ve got vases full of them all over my house, because I figure it will get cold soon, and then they’ll be done for the year-and I want to hang on to their beauty as long as I can. 

I don’t think I need to worry though.  My mums, unlike some computers I know, aren’t going to quit any time soon.

Happy Monday, dear readers!


  1. Welcome back frustrating yet marvelous invention the computer. :) B

  2. Thanks Buttons-I've missed you, and I could not agree more:)

  3. Valerie! hi! I wondered about you and it is nice to see you back. Sorry about the computer death and taxes - hahahaha. Too bad you didn't have my SIL to help you like he helped me. I loved all of your fun specific comments!!! Thank you!!!

  4. Glad to see you back! Sorry you had to buy some another computer. I hope you bought one with lots of bells and whistles. :)

  5. Welcome back! What gorgeous mums! They are so beautiful.

    Sorry about the computer troubles! 2 years isn't very long at all for a computer life span. At least your new one probably runs better :)

  6. I did something similar w/ laptop issues last winter. I just bought a new one. I still plan to wipe out my previous laptop (my friend can do this for me) and use it as a backup computer if I need to.
