Hallelujah!!! I fixed my laptop tonight. I thought it was done for, but honestly I haven't tried to put too much time in trying fix it myself. I contemplated buying an Ipad, or another laptop, or something that I can use to keep up my blog alive, but with a big trip coming in May (yes I am finally going to Macedonia, see you've missed that news) I really did not want to have another expense.
And here is a photo grid I made with photos I took on my smart phone a month ago during a short trip to LA. My husband and I went to a gallery opening where he had some work that I collaborated with him. I wanted to go along so we went.
