Good news! The q is for quandie IT department (ie. Mr. Q) came through with flying colors. When I got home from the day job on Friday he had a new computer all set up and ready to go for me.
I’m up and running with no need for a stiff drink. I took a quick hour or two on Saturday morning to give all of my functions a test drive. Since we basically woke up to a winter wonderland here in the Twin Cities with another 5″ or so of fresh snow, it was a great opportunity to take some photos and then run through my entire blogging process from start to finish (when it doesn’t involve actually painting a piece of furniture) to make sure everything was running smoothly.
As I said to Mr. Q , it was nice that it was only 4 degrees on Saturday morning because that meant the snow was really light and fluffy (which makes it easy to shovel).
And the sun just coming up lent the perfect light for taking a few photos.
Poor Cossetta, she is thigh-deep in snow these days.
I hope her feet aren’t too cold.
Looks like we won’t be grilling steaks any time soon.
I really wish I had a piece of furniture finished because it would be so fun to do an outside photo shoot in these conditions.
Remember this one?
Of course, that was a ‘before’ instead of an ‘after’.
But alas, my furniture painting has been on hold lately while I work on revamping my living room and piano room. I’m itching to get something painted though, so I may take a break from the revamp and paint a dresser this coming weekend. I still haven’t worked up the nerve to tackle my piano.
In the meantime, I’m just going to go get a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy this gorgeous snow.
Check back on Wednesday to hear about the final port of call on our Adriatic Cruise, Venice (ie. one of my favorite cities, but then I say that about most of the cities I’ve been to).
