My Computer Died!!!
As I told my husband, the life support plug had to be removed and I said my goodbyes. It had been a good and faithful laptop, a gift which I will forever be grateful for. I will be using his desktop computer as it is available. There will also be less pictures for awhile.
Did you ever have one of those seasons you go through when it seems everything is breaking down? We have before and I know it was a year or two ago when my daughter and son-in-law had one repair after another.
For us recently, the car spent a week in the shop for a major repair, our lawnmower finally died (it gave us trouble last fall), and the laptop decided it could no longer function. All within a week and a half...
Although... we were given another lawnmower, when a family member found out ours had stopped working. They had one they were not using. It was one of those God Winks in which the subject was even brought up and the timing perfect!
Another blessing received recently, you may remember that my husband is doing some work for an elderly couple from church who have an organic farm (he's helping them and will get paid in produce when it is available). They loaned him a great power hedge trimmer and he's already cut back one set of hedges, will finish the other soon. The power trimmer is heavy enough he has to use it but it will save me about two weeks off and on of clipping them with the hand tool.
I'm hoping to get the soil in the raised beds ready and planting done soon. The herb bed is just beginning to show a lot of growth, it has been so cool and damp. The dogwood is starting to bloom and the crab apple tree has been blooming and giving us a sweet scent for about a week.
Spring truly is here.
