Mac is back.
After three weeks without a home computer, we retrieved our three-year-old iMac today. Since it was under extended warranty, we had to drive it to the closest Macintosh repair center an hour away. That means taking an afternoon off, which is difficult to do, or driving there on Saturday, much easier. We made a day of it, stopping for lunch and visiting a wine shop where the selection was much better and the prices were more affordable than in our little town.
We also stopped at a kitchen store where I bought a new stockpot and some pie weights.
So, we're all set! It may take a day or two to get back in business, but I want to thank everyone for the encouragement in the last few weeks. I missed you all. Since I generally do my lurking, surfing and blogging before work or late at night, I was unable to keep up. I found that my iMac at work would not load photographs — very frustrating. I also found it difficult to read other blogs, both in terms of time and my work Mac's inability to download photos.
Anyway, 'old Mac is back! Thanks to all my blogger friends for their support and understanding. How I've missed you!
P.S. The photo above is not my kitchen but the French kitchen we used on our last trip to France. My kitchen is due for a good tidying up, which it will get tomorrow!
