The end of 2013 is nigh. It’s really just another number in the calendar, but psychologically I like to sum up the year that went by. I even used to make up two columns … one + and one – . Haven’t done that this time, but one event stands out … one that could go in both columns. My husband got very ill this Spring, during his trip to France. That was bad, but the fact that he survived definitely goes in the positive column.
For a while, I was inspired, by Cardinal Guzman, to pick one photo for each month but this year hasn’t been a good one, photo-wise. Started looking through my albums, so I’d spent almost two hours this morning when I decided against that. Of course I’ve taken photos that I like, but not one each month.
Besides, the organisation of my files got a little messed up when I got this new MacBook. Still working on that, and I’m beginning to think a wireless, external hard-drive would be a good thing to have. Does anyone have any experience with that? We have one that is connected via USB to the Windows computer, but it scares me a little to think that it won’t last forever …
One photo, at least, I really liked and am still glad I got around to take:
In order to finish off this post [that I feel is going nowhere]; one big change this year was that I became an «Apple person», as I bought the MacBook in September. Got sucked in, first, by the iPhone, then the iPad in March … and I’ve never looked back! Even though the iPad got ‘possessed‘, and had to be turned back in, that in itself was such a positive experience, service-wise, so I can’t complain … both from Apple and FedEx!
Finally, I feel very pleased to have my blog back at COLDERWEATHER. That’s how it started, and that’s where it’s going to stay. No more moving.
PS: Those last, three words might be my New Years resolution 🙂 …I have one blog and one email!
