By now all my readers have likely moved on to more interesting and updated hotspots or are sitting back in wonderment at how eerily quiet things have been in my little piece of real estate in the blogosphere. Is the place vacant? Did she pack up and move in the middle of the night?
No, I'm still here. Well, sort of still here. I've planned so many posts in my brain, but have had such precious little time to translate any of them to words on a screen. I think about writing. Then I don't. Then I feel guilty. I've let myself down. I've let my readers down. My little home on Planet Internet has been left lonely and neglected. The weeds are growing rampant, the dust lies thickly on every surface. The place looks abandoned. All that is missing are the shuttered windows and the crooked hanging sign that says "closed".
What could have possibly kept me away for so long? Hmmm. Life? A series of unfortunate events? Yes, and Yes. Remember how back in February my computer DIED suddenly and without warning? And I had to wait until March 10 to get my new one? And then all the time spent setting it up? ... Well, I had barely owned the thing for a month when it somehow caught a nasty virus and we had to restore it back to factory settings. All that time I spent setting it up ... all the programs loaded.... all the preferences checked... ALL GONE. Again.
The virus happened around mid-April... so it isn't a surprise to me look back and see that I haven't blogged since April 4th. We got the discs and did the whole reset on April 25th and I started loading programs again. But this time, my heart just hasn't been in it. I still don't have PSE and LR set up for my preferences, and I'm still finding Windows 10 a bit confusing to navigate. And the computer is still a bit fussy and temperamental. So it is hard to get photos to go with posts since my editing capabilities aren't fully functional yet. And I really hate to post without photos.
So here are some photos:
I will endeavor to stop back at some point during the weekend and catch you up on other doings in my life. But please don't hold me to it - life is crazy busy right now!
