Oh it has been a terrible day for me. After the euphoria of yesterday I settled down to serious writing when up sprang a RED ERROR MESSAGE on my office machine and then more error messages; I closed down and then tried to restart and a little whizzing thingy went round and round in circles - - and nothing happened. That was at 10.15 am and Raymond and I have been working on the problem for seven hours. We think the files are recoverable but can't access the back-up drive either. Coupled to which the card-reader through which I download photos from my Sony camera has also packed up and the batteries on my Nikon are limping. I am whacked and disconsolate, and the weather doesn't help: rain, rain, rain all day and slush and mud and dirty melting snow; the driveway is under water (nowhere for it to run). Snow slid off the barn roof and I had to negotiate a veritable slippery mountain to fetch wood for the stove. I feel totally rung out and cannot think of anything creative at all.
Thank heavens for my laptop. So to cheer myself up, I am posting a photo I took the other evening, at sunset. It may be a while before I am back here posting again, so love to everyone whose blog I have been following, and love also to all who have kindly followed my own postings; I truly value all your comments, even if I have not responded to them. Take care of yourselves; I will miss you all.
