Just a quick note...

I'm glad to see February coming to an end today. Without going into all the unpleasant details, I'll just say it hasn't been a very good few weeks around here. I'm hopeful March will be better--after all it's my birthday month! And spring should be arriving for real, and it's my very favorite time of year.

I've been full of ideas for topics to blog about lately, but have been hampered by my main computer dying a quick and rather dramatic death this week. (It was like a machine possessed-- blank screen, high pitched horrible incessant beeps, and it wouldn't shut off. It had to be unplugged to make it stop.) I'm forced to type this with my tablet, and the tiny pop up keyboard is totally unsatisfactory. We're shopping around for a good deal on a new desktop tower. Once it gets here I'm ready to breathe some new life into this slightly neglected old blog!

In the meantime, I wish everyone a good weekend and a sunny, warm, and beautiful beginning of March.


  1. There is nothing worse than a machine that doesn't work, be it a car, toaster, or computer. We can forgive the human body for its faults, but NOT a machine.

    1. How right you are, Cro! Before the computer died for good we went through a costly round of repairs and data retrieval from the hard drive. Malfunctioning machines are one of the most irritating things in the world to me!

  2. Big warm-up in Michigan! 18 degrees right now.
    I hope you have a better March.
