Happy Dance At Ships Landing

I won the most WONDERFUL give-away from Julie at JulieKQuilts.  You are waaaay too generous, girlfriend.  :)  I don't have a clue what I will use these in yet, but I'm drooling all over them as I pull books and patterns, searching for just the perfect pattern.  Thank you sooo very much, Julie, for your generous gift.  It warms the cockles of my heart.  :D

Laptop is back

It has a few little quirks but we can live with those.  Richie did an amazing job just getting it to power up and work.  According to what we read online, we were really fortunate to know someone who could work on it AND that it was actually salvageable.  The power supply isn't working properly; purchased a new power cord, but evidently this is something that shorted out on the motherboard.  Do we invest $300-$400 for a new board?  Maybe, but if being plugged into the wall outlet keeps it working, well, that's all I've done with it in the past anyway.  So, I'm just really happy to have it functioning.  :)

The temperatures are so mild now that I have Spring fever.  The last few days it's been close to 60.  Shrubs and flowers are starting to bud and pop up from the ground.  I'm afraid that it will decide to play 'Winter' when we should be going into Spring, and nip everything.  But that's the future, right?  I will just meander back into 'today' and enjoy.
