thought I was invincible, I guess

When all the other bloggers were having their troubles with the picture downloading, I thought that wouldn't happen to me.  Today I found out otherwise.  I took oodles of pictures of my last roses - on a sunny fall day - to show you, and some of the new Halloween plants... to no avail.  I can't figure out how to get them into the computer.  A couple of weeks ago Microsoft updated, and changed our computer - forever - I guess.  Since then I lost my Microsoft Works - put it back onto the computer from the old software disc, but still lost all my files, and the new stuff works differently... not a big thing, but I've had to rebuild my address file.  Good thing I never trusted the #@$^%*&~+##@ thing with the Christmas list or any other handy list that would have only worked until they put on an update without my permission.  I wonder why they think I have nothing better to do than to keep up with their destruction.  I now keep a paper copy - in this paperless society - to backup the junk.
So no pictures of the roses, but I'll look through the files I did retain - of some old pictures to put on here.
Well, I can't access the pictures I can see that are in my computer from before the update.  So no pictures. 
Guess at this time in my life that is a good thing.  I really need to go sew.  I have a couple little paper pieced projects to finish.  Gonna make a couple of "mug rugs".  I have a couple of people in mind for them.
You also won't be seeing the very excellent gifts that my Sis sent me for "early Christmas".  She sends me Halloween things I might like for Christmas... cause I like Halloween better. (See previous posts for the reasons.) Yesterday I got a crystal ball, Hermione's wand, and the Marauder's Map... to use in our Halloween diorama.  What a generous gift. I can say Thank You Sis!!!!!!!!!!!! but I can't share the pictures with you.
Well, I'm off to sew.  Thanks for stopping in to check on me.
<3 You and I especially <3 my Followers!!!
