A new Year

... and so it begins.

I want to wish you all a Happiest of new Years.... finally.

Thank you all for checking in and for being patient with my computer crisis.

Let me tell you, a simple fix turned into a 3 week over-nighter at the shop AND then they had to do a system restore.  Thank goodness my picture files were all backed up BUT some of the other things you take advantage of having were not!! 

For example, all software programs that I downloaded are gone.... my photo editing program for one... Microsoft word (office) is also gone. Crap!

I was so excited to get to work on new photos and some much needed blog time, but NOW I have to get things in order first... 
 I know how to be patient and push forward until I get my results, but this is starting to stress me out a bit. Maybe that should be my word for the new year...patience ... hummmm. Don't know about that one.

Although, my computer has been at the shop, I have been trying to catch up on your blogs with my little iPad.  For the life of me, I can not figure out how to move pictures other then email them.  How in the world can I do a post from that silly thing???? If any of you know a good instructional link PLEASE send it my way.

As far as the new year goes, let me catch you up on things. 
1. Christmas at the Barn is 50% off
