A Blur

Saturday/Sunday blew by us as we traveled to East Tennessee for a couple of hours with Brian's parents and grandparents (who are 92 and 89). We had a service with a sweet church Sunday, then made our way back home early evening. It was about 13 hours in the car in a 2 day period of time so we're all moving a bit slowly this morning and the weekend feels like a bit of a blur.



I came home to a computer that will not boot up. It feels like a disaster, and I spent the better part of the morning crying. I know there are worse things to happen, but for a memory-keeper and photographer, being without a computer, Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. feels like a big deal. Of course what this means for you is that there will be no non-camera pictures on the blog until we can get something figured out. Thankfully, my external hard drive works so I didn't lose pictures.

The good news is that I met two friends, Kari and Jenne, for coffee this morning at Barista Parlor. I am not too proud to admit that it was much too hip for the likes of me, but, boy, was it fantastic. I will be dreaming about that iced coffee for a long, long time. I was too busy talking to take any pictures, so you'll just have to trust me when I say it was a very interesting experience. As if I weren't enough of a coffee snob, this experience may have ruined me for any other iced coffee.

And now I'm off to get started on laundry, pull this house back together, and try to not shed any more tears over my computer.
