Friday, February 20 started out like any other day. I was particularly lazy that day and violated my routine of grocery shopping in the morning and didn't leave until just after noon. I also didn't take my MacBook Pro computer off the Family Room sofa like I usually do. I was only gone for a little shy of 1 1/2 hours. It was after I had carried all the groceries in that I noticed our sliding glass doors looked "funny". A quick glance to the sofa revealed no computer nor charger. I think this was when I began to shake. I will add what I did next only because fellow quilters will relate so well. I ran to my sewing room, which is just behind the Family Room, to make sure my Bernina was still there! The police had quite the chuckle over this detail so I tend to leave it out when my listeners are non quilters. The police "dusted" for fingerprints and it seems our crook knew to wear latex gloves. I had a borrowed PC but I'm a Mac girl and well, it just wasn't the same. Nothing was backed up, so I lost pictures and bookmarks and personal information. The sense of violation I felt afterward shocked me. After much investigation by the police, I have come to accept that it"s gone and I have a new computer now. It is different enough that some new learning needs to occur but that is good. And it has Time Machine, a built in system for backing up my computer information.
I've done quite a bit of sewing and managed to do two classes since I last posted. I will post pictures next time. Thanks for stopping by.
