Melissa said...

Yikes. Sorry to hear about your computer! The only thing worse than having your old computer croak is trying to get the new computer set up just the way you want it!

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

oh no...this happened to my husband's computer on the way to the beach this weekend! The kids were watching a movie and "shared" a drink of water with the computer. Luckily it dried out just fine...this time! Janell

Lightning is not so great for airport connections either. We discovered that one last week.

Wahzat Gayle said...

I need to recreate that last picture in my backyard for sure

sealaura said...

oh no!!! you poor thing! I am so paranoid of water hitting the computer that I move my glass of water out of the computer's way in case an earthquake hits while I am not at my desk!

at least you are getting a new unexpected treat!

Oh Linda, my 7 year old computer is on its way. I've actually wanted to take a hammer to it. A new one is coming this week and I'm sick. If you only knew how phobic I am about anything to do with the computer. Hope I'll read you again someday.

Completely Coastal + Daily Vitamin Sea said...

Like Sealaura..., I have to remember to keep my water away. It almost happened once.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Oh so sorry Linda. That sucks! Great pics though. You got me salivating for that round pillow and wanting to take a nap in that beautiful little outdoor spot. Happy day to you.

Great to hear it dried out enough to resurrect! I dropped a brand new camera in the ocean once - on the last day of our romantic anniversary getaway so all treasured images went 'swimming.' BUT although the camera died, the images survived!
