I’ve been having an issue with the USB device for my external hard drive. And now that I think of it, it was acting up a little even before I got the new laptop. I thought I had it figured out over the weekend, as it was working just fine; but tonight it once again decided not to be recognized by the computer.
It wasn’t until I shut the laptop down, did a voodoo chant over the Maxtor hard drive, powered the laptop up again and voila – it worked.
Because I’m rather tired of it all this evening, and today was the first day back to normal hours after a summer of shortened days at work, I’m especially tired. So I’m sharing photos that I took at this time last year.
I don’t ever remembering re-posting photos before, so this is a first.
I know that my long-time readers have seen these already. But maybe you won’t mind for now. The dish at the bottom right is one of my favorite summer salads, [Watermelon, Feta & Olive Salad].
This year, these are purple.
I had discovered textures and was having a lot of fun with them.
And my cosmos were still alive and thriving. This year’s crop didn’t fare so well because of the extreme heat, I guess.
I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, so I think I need to zip it.
But just one more before I go . . . this is my favorite iced tea and I’m actually getting really thirsty right now just gazing at it. It’s Bigelow’s Raspberry Tea and the simple recipe follows:
Boil 2 cups water. Remove from heat.
Add 4 raspberry tea bags.
Let steep about 15-20 min.
Add 1 cup sugar (or less) and stir.
Pour into 2 qt. pitcher and add cold water to taste.
It is so refreshing on a hot summer day and perfect to come home to at the end of a long one.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
