On Wednesday night, I did my first speaking engagement about my new book Crafting a Colorful Home. I had a great group come out on a frigid night and it was so much fun to meet so many wonderful women who were interested in what I had to say and show them. Thanks to the lovely owners of Black Sheep Knitting Company who invited me.
My sister Laurie helped me run the projector at the talk and at the end of it, I shared photos of her lovely home that are on the Houzz.com website. She is also an artist and decorative painter and since everyone was so enthusiastic about her work, I thought it would be fun to share it here too. Check out Laurie's colorful home here.
This morning when I woke up, I discovered that one of our cats (which one? I wish I knew!) decided to use my computer bag as a litter box (hence the title of my post). I opened the computer up after toweling all the liquid up and it started smoking. Not a good day here. I've been to Brown Computers twice today in Brattleboro and hopefully tomorrow, I will be picking up a new MacBook. Lucky for me, the hard drive is fine but the old laptop was fried.
Keep buying books and patterns friends because it is going to take lots of sales to pay for my new one. I am so dependent on my computer. Luckily I had backed it up just a week ago so even if the hard drive was gone, I would have most of my files. It is going to take me a few days to get it all sorted out.
I did ask the folks at Brown if they had ever heard cat urine frying a computer and no, they hadn't. Cat throw-up yes, cat pee - no. I guess there is a first time for everything. Do you have any entertaining computer crisis stories?
Have a great weekend everyone! Bear with me as postings, photos, etc. may be lacking until I get my new laptop up and running. I never relish getting all the programs running like they were before the cat incident or whenever upgrading a computer system.
