My laptop has a shiny new hard drive and a shiny new version of Ubuntu. Hooray!
Of course all such upgrades come at a price, and that price is I've lost my bookmarks until we find them in the back up.... Also about 50% of my preferences had to be deleted to make things work again.
And we forgot that the machine overheats unless the fan is told to run, and when installing software, the instruction to run the fan doesn't work! DH was getting mighty frustrated with it "crashing" (actually shutting down) until I reminded him. When he set up an external computer fan on the laptop, it ran like a charm. (I'm mighty impressed by these tiny little computer fans - it was moving a good bit of air around and I think on the next hot day, I'd like a few hanging around me! Alas that would mean having a power supply to lug around too...)
I've got new pics to edit to show you things I've knitted that I've forgotten to get pics of! I knitted a few things over a month ago and still haven't gotten their FO pics. I've not been doing so much knitting recently, not sure why. I think I've been doing too much gardening and quilting. The garden is an ongoing issue as there is only one of me and I'm stretched pretty thin. I've got work, chickens, cats, a half kitchen, a whole house, a garden.... Doesn't sound like much but I spent more than half of Sunday dealing with dishes, cooking meals and fixing up small things that needed to be done. It all keeps me busy! No rest for the wicked and I must've been extremely wicked!
I'll be back later - feeling hammered after a day of driving DH places (he hates driving) and then sewing a backing for the new quilt topped off by 1.5 hours of energetic weeding.
