I have been missing this place.
This space of food, fun and thriftiness…this world of blogging…
To be clear, it has not been a choice of mine.
Rather, it’s been more of a consequence of a martini meeting my muse, my laptop…or should I say, our laptop. Our one and only laptop. Our only ‘mobile’ device. Our only computer.
Michael (my partner) and I share a laptop and neither of us have i-phones or any phone of that sort…hence why you won’t find me on twitter or Facebook (at least regularly) – it’s impossible to ‘keep-up’ with our home dial-up service. Seriously i-m-p-o-s-s-i-b-l-e.
We still only have access to dial-up internet service from our home. No cell service. No satellite service. No cable service. We rely on our phone line to connect us to the world wide web.
Shocking. I know…so when our computer was not working properly our life (online) came to a sudden halt.
Yikes how dependent we are upon this little (yet very vital) piece of plastic, wires and buttons…
I digress, our laptop keeps our business running smoothly and this blog a chuggin’… it allows me access the world wide web I cannot always access at home, so when a martini was mixed up with our beloved keyboard, well, it was a definite, ‘oh no’ moment.
I’m not naming names, but it wasn’t me.
A trip to the Mac store validated the fact that it needed a new keyboard. I was relived. That’s it? YEAH!! I wanted to scream with joy!
‘You mean it’s fixable?’, I said to the tech. He said, ‘yes’ and it will be ready tomorrow. WOW! I was so relieved…
I didn’t lose all those photos and all those documents and everything else which lives on this portable device…note to self, back-up info. more than once every few months…
So, here I am again.
Ready to share more fabulous recipes and silly stories about my freebie barn finds and my life…plus, I’m looking forward to catching up with all the blogs I follow – I’ve missed them!
Enjoy the weekend!
What a relief! I would be so lost if something were to happen to my computer. I have an iMac, too. It is so GREAT!
I know…I felt lost for the week while we were waiting for our appointment…I love our Mac too, now if only I could find the time to learn how to utilize more of what it has to offer!(:
Good to see you back again! We often don’t realise how dependent we are on technology and equipment, until we don’t have it anymore…
Thank you! And oh so true!
Glad you’re back online. We had dial-up until about 2 years ago, and I’m amazed you can do all you do.
Thank you Mim. A lot of what I do is actually done before or after work, in wifi areas…sometimes even in my car! Though I am appreciative at least for my dial-up as it lets me check my emails from home – at least I can do that! (:
Glad you didn’t love everything! I’ve often thought that we are quite dependent on modern technology 🙂
Thank you! Yes, we are so dependent upon technology – it’s a bit frightening at times…in so many ways…
Meant to say *lose 🙂
I knew what you meant – technology again – hit send and there it goes…thank you though for the clarification! (:
I have been away for a while myself so I know how you feel.
Good to hear a repair was available, a reminder to all to do a backup every now and again 🙂
Glad to see your back too! Your house looks amazing and is an inspiration – I’m loving learning and watching the process…(:
Welcome back. I know how dependent we are on the internet when our cable goes out. I’m happy that your Mac was repairable. Apple has such good customer service. 🙂
Thank you Karen!
Glad to learn you did not lose any info. Backing up my computer after this.
Me too! I’ve been told to back-up my back-up too…oh, the ups and downs of technology…(:
