I have not been able to blog for more than a week, as my computer crashed. I had to install a whole new operating system, then try to retrieve all my files, which took literally hours on the phone, (mostly on hold it seems!) I still haven’t finished reloading software, but at least I am back, and as far as I can tell, most of my important files (especially photos) are intact.
I was still running Windows XP and have put off updating as long as possible, as I am a creature of habit and hate learning a new system, but this has forced my hand, so I will have to bite the bullet and learn Windows 8.1 as best I can.
I have not re-installed my card reader yet, so have not downloaded any new photos, so I will cheat a bit and use something from the Archives for today’s photo.
I chose this Sunflower because it is such a dull and dreary day today, and I need to cheer myself up.
As if the computer woes were not enough, my washing machine malfunctioned yesterday, and had partially flooded the basement before I realized anything was wrong. I contacted a repair guy, but the machine is 29 years old and they don’t make parts for it any more! Looks like we will be shopping for a new machine, while a load of wet towels sits in the wash basket! Could this week get any better! 🙂
