26 Jan Bliss of another kind
I thought yesterday would be a blissful sewing day. My younger daughter (on semester break) took the bus to Chicago to visit my older daughter and my computer was in the shop, so what else to do but sew, sew, sew! I had big plans to do a lot of quilting on the new/original version of Spell It Out.
A call from the computer repair shop interrupted my plans …”I’m sorry to say that your system is shot and we’ll have to wipe the hard drive and start again…” That sent me in search of my backup/flash drive, backed up the day before, which I then couldn’t find. Minor panic ensued!! It had to be buried in those papers somewhere! I knew it was well past time to do some major paper organizing, so now was obviously the time. A few, ahem, hours later, some clear countertop space!
You’ll note my lovely laptop back where it belongs. I won’t say this too loudly for fear of tempting fate, but, so far, it has been a breeze to reinstall the things I use the most – it took about two hours this afternoon to reinstall programs and copy documents and pictures from that flash drive (found about 20 minutes into the clean-up yesterday).
It feels so good to have my work space clean!
However, it the spirit of keeping it real, I must show you the shelves which are just out of view at the right end of my countertop. Definitely in need of some work – it’s a never ending process 🙂
How about you? Are you a “clean as you go” type or the “wait until I can’t find anything and it’s driving me crazy” type?
