An unexpected gift to myself...


A new computer :-) and I love it. Even if it was not a planned purchase right now!

My laptop took a triple somersault hard drive crash earlier this week. Fortunately I managed to get it to boot and restore one time - and connect to my external backup drive. My last backup was not sooo old, but just the thought of figuring out what was missing made my brain jiggle. More.

There was no question of trying to fix my laptop. The hard drive had a bad sector and a new one would cost as much as the 2-year old bottom-of-the-line machine. It served me well. Time to ante up and get a good computer that can handle the photo editing I'm doing now and let me really enjoy available technology.

This iMac is a wowser! And I did get a great holiday-season price. I'm looking forward to getting back to posting some sewing and catching up with blog-reading!

Hope everyone is doing well. Bye for now - Coco

  2. Love that big screen. I have the smaller macbook air and if I had to do it over, I would get the larger screen.

  4. A silver lining in the cloud with your computer malfunction. What a lovely computer - and I adore all your furniture, especially the chair :).
