I'm a Mac

Last weekend, after a lot of thought and research (and encouragement from my Mac-loving family), I bought a Macbook Pro! The standard Macbook would have been fine for my non-fancy use, but the advantages of the Pro seemed worth the extra money. I plan to have it for many years, and this allows me room to "grow" and has a more current processor. Plus, it's sturdier and prettier. :) I've only used PCs in the modern computer era, so I'm still at the beginning of the learning curve. But I know I'll love it eventually. I already appreciate the simplicity and "cleanliness."

In other news, some friends and I conspired to "kidnap" Caroline last Friday for a surprise early-birthday celebration! I was nervous about pulling it off, but everything went smoothly, and she was totally surprised. :) We picnicked by the river in Harbor Town (it's so pretty there - I want to go more often):

Hillary even brought a bouquet of flowers for the "table setting." She thinks of everything! :)

Then we went to wine and cheese night at Seize the Clay!

We painted mugs, goblets, and birthday plates, and I painted a sign for my house. More on that at a later date.

Finally, I know you want some solar-powered meerkats for your yard:


I was dumbfounded by this ad in Sunday's paper. I mean... wow.


  1. Ha! Love meerkats ... not sure about having those in the yard though.

  2. Wow, what's up with the meerkats?? Are those in demand now? Masterfully crafted!

    I love the picture with the flowers in the basket. :)

  3. Give it a week and you'll be loving your Mac! LOL... there is definitely a learning curve. Awesome sunset!

  4. I heart my Mac. It took a little while to get used to it...but it's awesome. :)

  5. Welcome to the Mac world. I adore mine and once you get used to the differences, they are so user friendly.
