Can there ever be too much love - or technology?

First - Let me wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day. I found this quote I love so have to share it here.
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." Lao Tzu
I turn around and a week has gone by . . . these are busy times.

This past Friday, my new computer arrived. It amazes me that it left Shanghai on Wednesday and gets to rural Montana Friday afternoon via Memphis. But from that point on, I have been deep into "geekhood". It is a new MacBook Pro. I got the 13" size this time after having the 15" for the past two MacBooks I wasn't sure if it would be okay, but I love it. It takes some time to get it set just like I like and get files transferred over, etc. And then, Bob gets the old one, so I reinitialized the hard drive on that one and loaded an updated version of the OS just for him.

And right in the middle of being a Mac geek, my software from Art and Stitch arrived so I had to install that as well. First I uninstalled the trial version and then installed and played with the new software. I love it. I prefer not to have my Mac run Windows software. It just doesn't seem right to me. But, remember, I have been a Mac person (with all of the idiosyncrasies) since 1984. At one time yesterday, I had the new Mac, the old Mac, the old, old Mac and the HP all set up on the counter in the kitchen. The new Mac is that sleek little one second from the left and the oldest Mac is on the far right end. I got it in 2002 and used it until 2007 when I got the next one and now this one. Before Bob retired, he used PCs in our business, but since being home had decided that old, old Mac was going to be his. I hope he likes the new old one as well.

But, things are settled back to normal this morning and I am off to quilt a quick customer table runner and then one for myself.

Have a great day!
