computer crashes and weekends

It's confirmed -  my computer crashed
and we're going to have to start all over.
Darn those Microsoft updates! (to put it very nicely...)
It's a good thing Greg is very patient with this sort of thing-
because - if it was up to me, by the time I finished throwing my tantrum diligently working on fixing it,
there would be too many tiny jagged pieces to bother with.
Sigh

Anyway - it promises to be a beautiful Spring weekend in New England
- ending with the Boston Marathon on Monday


We'll be rebuilding my computer - which means I get to reload Photoshop all over again
 and organize my photos all . over . again.

So when I get to these,
I'll be filing them under "Things that keep me up at Night"


or maybe "Things that keep my hair stylist in business"

And it would seem that my
designer-loving-croc-loathing-city-girl-princess-turned-AT-through-hiker
is now somewhere in the Shenandoah Valley, having hiked more than 750 miles - so far.

And here I thought that the whole crocs-as-camp shoes thing would have her running home
 for a Tory Burch fix long before now.
It just goes to show you - Mom doesn't always know everything.
Please don't tell my kids I said that...

I hope you have a fun filled weekend planned!

boston fencery

So - I went out last weekend and took lots of photos
- downloaded them to my computer
-installed updates
- and -Crash!


Ummmm, yeah, my mistake was installing the updates...
Not good...

So anyway - I found this photo of a some Boston fencery on my iPhone
I took it while out walking earlier this week - can you see the signs of Spring?
-smile-
I've always liked these old brick apartment buildings
- and the way that in the midst of a busy city, you can find quiet tree-lined streets

and that whole computer thing? - yeah, we'll see - grrrr
