A pretty nice weekend:

     Saturday brought the joys of having Shanra finish reading book 4, and a bald eagle flying right over me as I left home to drive to church. Yippee!

     Sunday had a dramatic start with my being unable to turn on my pc. Thankfully, little Frogmouth saved the day, as I plugged my DSL into that so I could look up what the RAM read/write fail error meant...reseated the cards, and Tertius came back to life, thank God!

     Because of that, headed off an hour later than planned, but still had a lovely, cool 6.2 mile (10 km) walk at William O'Brien State Park, and some more photos for my 2011 autumn collection, despite the third round of nasty winds leaving very little color to enjoy. The sheltered areas were still gorgeous, just a matter of finding them.

     Also very happy to finish my 'Wildfire' illustration at last, and make good progress with writing in 'Tutelage.'

Sounds like a lovely weekend. ^-^ Except for the computer problems. I'm glad it sounded like it was an easy fix, though.

And lovely pictures in that collection there! Autumn is a beautiful season, isn't it? ^-^

Yes, though as I was telling a coworker, now I'm afraid to bump my pc lest it happen again! But very glad I don't have to go through all the mess of dealing with warranty and getting replacement RAM.

Autumn is wonderful. Thanks for looking! =)

At least if you had to deal with warranty it wouldn't cost you to have the RAM replaced? Though still far better not to have to mess with it at all!

Yes, money-wise it wouldn't have been bad. It's just that I was determined to finish my 'Wildire' illustration that day, and first I was freaking over losing everything to do with it, and then I was freaking over having to wait for days to sort everything with customer service and get new RAM shipped. Yes, I need to work on my patience. ;) Very glad I didn't have to mess with it at all.

Computer failure is not exactly the way you'd like to start your day, is it? I'm glad that it picked up with the creative endeavors and the trip to the state park. I especially liked the picture of the prairie grass!

Yes, I'm very glad it got better from there!

Thanks for looking! I tried to get a video of the wind in the prairie grass, as it was quite beautiful.

I hope everything is going well for you. =)
