Thank you for your patience as I struggled through my computer problems for far too long. It is my great pleasure to report that I am fully back into the business of regular blogging! Not only does the computer load photos lightening fast, it does the same with deleting which I took advantage of yesterday. Indeed, I deleted 2,000 photographs from my library, vowing to myself to be ruthless in the future. I'm not nearly done with the process, however I've put a dent into the overflow. I began in the here and now, but after several hours grew tired of seeing what I'd most recently taken. Eventually I went to the beginning of my library, such as it is because in my effort to make the computer run faster, I'd put about ten years worth solely on an external hard drive. While going through the months of picture taking, beginning in January 2017, I came across a few gems that I am going to re-post because they may have been buried in the avalanche, but I want to re-remember them.
Indulge me, will you?
It goes without saying that I have hundreds, and maybe hundreds more, photographs of that sweet time when the owls were nesting in the cemetery. For some reason they are especially hard to delete. Recalling the day I was fortunate enough to take the photo below was such a sweet memory.
One bird that is seemingly in no danger of leaving the area are the peacocks off of Lake Margaret Drive. I've not popped over there for a while now because I literally have more photos of peacocks than is good for me. This one really pleased me at the time.
Indeed the tile setters are here and things are moving quickly. When we got the estimate we questioned one of the products and it turns out it is a system that makes quick work of a new shower with pre-made parts. Herbert was here for two days, re-texturing the walls, taking out the toilet, doing the plumbing for the shower and more. While here he mentioned to Bruce that they make a shower niche and I was sent to the tile store so it would be here on install day. Bruce doing some work on the studs to make it work.
I took off super early on Tuesday morning following a conversation with Susan who told me she saw some cygnets at Lake Davis. Did not take long to find them, two of whom are pictured although there were four on that day.
Soon after returning from Lake Davis we opened our door to a plumber who was here to replace the kitchen waste disposal. Should have done it when the sink went in, but it worked perfectly at the time with no leaking whatsoever. That changed.
Showalter, finding a website with photos. Her husband was Buck Rogers. One thing we discussed this week was the novel that she'd read a while ago. It was one of those binge books that you can't put down. At least for me it was for a while. It seems as if it is universally praised, however, there were sections so unbelievable that I just could not get past them. Too, after finishing the novel, I read a few interviews with the author and just as I suspected she is a great fan of To Kill a Mockingbird. While reading the courtroom scenes, I kept seeing the resemblance. Anyway, the novel is Where the Crawdads Sing. I liked the nature parts the best.
As you have also gleaned I managed to transfer all my data from my old computer to the new one without any help, a first for me. Woo hoo!
Let the regular blogging begin again!
