A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to…

Did you miss me? did you wonder if I had fallen off the face off the earth? well I can tell you that being withoiut my Mac is sorta kinda like something I haven’t experienced in a very long time.

A funny thing happened on the way to… I needed to have a little work done on my car, nothing serious, just the time for maintenance based on my mileage! Well I thought I would bring my laptop, blog and work on some other things for the shop. Sounded like a good idea, right? Why waste the time, which is somethinhg that I don’t like doing.

Well my computer kept shutting off, and it kept shutting off, so I figured why fight it and I didn’t try to revive it. I got to work and it was fine, excpet for no internet…same thing when I got home, so whynot reboot it? well it would never come back on and based on my work schedule and when the Apple store had an opening at the Genius bar, it would be at least a week or more. So my time came and the verdict was that I would need to reinstall the software…and notice I said “I” as it was too old for Apple to do it. So basically my computer crashed, but I did have everything backed up on my hand dandy external hard drive, so not to worry! An 8 year old laptop, you served me well, so its was time for a change.

Came back from market and went shopping the next night for a new Mac! So between lots of interruptions of being sick, working, not feeling well and being locked  out of my new computer…I am finally up and running! The best thing so far about merging from the external hard drive is it seems to remember all of my passwords and settings. I am going to have an issue with pictures, but that is something for another day and am guessing that I will need to uninstall the printer and install a new one…not going to reinstall an 8 year old printer!

So no pictures right now. AlleyCat and I are good and am ready to leave her again for a few days as its time for Blue Bonnet stitching retreat…and then its my big Getaway retreat at the shop, so I will see you when I see you. The Olympics are here and soon it will be baseball season. I hope you missed me as much as we missed you!

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Really missed you and your great photos. Glad to hear that, while it was a serious computer issue, you are okay. I was worried.
    Enjoy some stitching time in front of the Olympics!

  2. I did miss you and kitty but I know how busy you are. You got many years out of that computer, time for the new one. Are you ready to add a new cat? Hard to believe baseball season is right around the corner. Enjoy your retreat and the Olympics.

  3. Welcome back to computer connected and blog. You were missed. Olympic stitching is my favorite – I plan projects several weeks in advance and stitch to my heart’s content. Have fun at Blue Bonnet and good luck with Getaway.
