I was without my computer for 2 weeks while it was in wait for repairs. No bugs, or any type of tangible damaging issues were found. I was having troubles with updates to virus protections, and issues with downloads in new programs. I lost my java, my reader, everything was going whacky, and my PC got bossy, and then just didn't do anything right. My emails were acting up, and so was my twitter, and facebook accounts. A whole lotta craziness. The repair guy ended up cleaning out my PC, and my bookmarked websites, accounts, and links were all removed in the process. I'm just now recovering my website accounts, and renewing passwords, etc.. Not an easy job with every single website needing all my lost info that proves I'm who I say I am. What a mess. I've lost quite a lot, and may never recover everything, but for now, I need to just get back online, and return access to my networks. I did not lose any of my pictures, and artworks, thank you, Lord! Whew!
I did some work on my horses drawing, and some holiday drawings I never finished last year. Got some of my old teddy bear drawings ready to share. I still have a camera problem. I couldn't afford repairs to both PC, and camera, and of course the PC comes first. I got a nice break on the repair cost, so I think I can have my camera looked at early in November. I hate the timing of all these problems. Why do they always seem to happen just before the times I need to get the holiday stuff done??
On another note. My horses drawing is nearly done, but I'm not happy with the background, yet. I keep changing the background stuff, and found I needed to just take a break from it. Nervous energy does not make for a happy artist. I Must be happy in my work, or they won't turn out well. Just a couple of days to focus attention to my holiday art, and get my websites back in order. Have plenty of time this week-end for all of that.
I hope everyone is doing well. Enjoy the week-end! I LOVE the Fall season!
