Our laptop crashed Monday right after my last blog posting. So off it went to the Geek Squad at Best Buy's. We finally got it back Thursday afternoon.
And Tuesday (which was when we planned to go to Ham's Peach Orchard) was rainy when we got up, so we decided to postpone that little excursion until next week.
Instead we headed for the Mall and Eataly's again for walking and coffee. Granddaughter came with us. She decided to try some coconut gelato this time... while I had my espresso hit and DH had his black coffee.
Since we didn't have our laptop this week, we couldn't do our online curbside pickups... so grocery shopping got postponed too. I mean, we could have gone to the grocery and shopped inside with our masks on, but we 've gotten so spoiled with online shopping that we really didn't want to... unless fixing the laptop was going to take longer than expected. Luckily it didn't.
And I have to admit too that that awful tragedy in Florida where that Condo collapsed has taken a lot of my attention this week. How could that have happened? Watching the video on TV is so appalling... it almost defies belief. I continue to pray that they will find more people alive (as hopeless as it seems when you see the devastation). But miracles do happen... and I'm certainly praying for one.
I know this is short, but just wanted to let people know that I haven't kept up with blogs or made comments these lasts few days due to our laptop problem. But hopefully that is fixed now and life 'as we know it these days' can resume.
Also... when dusting today, I came across my old critter chess set we made as a clay project years ago. I still like it... (although it's a bit rough).

I made the King and Queen (center) a dog and cat, Bishops were rats, Knights were rabbits, Rooks were snakes... and Pawns were birds. It was a fun project (although it took a bit of time).
Well, stay safe... and have a good weekend!
