Just playing



I had a weekend of just relaxing. I needed it very much. It had been a long week. Need to update in detail but not sure if I'll post it here. All is good now though.

I signed up to a template class on Renee Pearson's website. I've caught up on six days of classes and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I've been following the prompts as closely as possible on the Holidays in Hand class from Jessica Sprague's site.

On Friday I had a busy day. My iMac was finally repaired and I had the long drive to go and get it. I had to take all the kids with me as they 've now all finished school. I came home, hooked up the iMac to the Time Capsule and in under two hours the computer was running with EVERYTHING exactly the same as it was. I didn't have to reinstal a program, add a single bookmark or personalize anything. Even Billy-Joe's Sims games was exactly as it was the last time he played it. I'm so glad that when the iMac started playing up in May, that I went out and bought the Time Capsule. To have a cloned version of my entire hard drive is invaluable. Not only are all my settings safe, but of course my music, movies and photos too. I'm even happier than ever with my decision to go with Macs.

On Friday we also put up the Christmas tree, and I got to take some photos. I'll edit more as the days go by and upload them. I used Scott Kelby's portrait editing tips on the above photo and considering it was the first shot, taken with the incorrect white balance setting, it turned out lovely. I'm looking forward to editing more pics. It's been ages I've taken photos, and I'm excited again....

Lovely photo Jenny, you did a good job with it.

I know what you mean about being busy, so looking forward to the kids finishing school so that we can spend some time just hanging out at home... nice.

Glad to hear your computer is up and running properly again, I really have to look into something like the time capsule, except for a PC not a Mac.
