We are waiting for more snow to arrive here. I am loving and cherishing every single flake!

At least we are getting more snow!!! A lot of people have enquired about how I destroyed my computer and how the screen replacement cost 660.00. It hurts to even type that. I use an Apple laptop with a 17 inch screen. I have had it for about 4 years and it has been a great computer. I use it in the kitchen for most of the day and the screen is a dust and grease magnet. I have always used a slightly damp paper towel with a drop of dawn dish detergent to wipe down the screen. Then I dry it with another dry paper towel. I have done this several times a week for 4 years. Four days ago when I did this, I guess the paper towel was a bit too damp. Water leaked into the bottom of my screen and fried it. The 17 inch is no longer made though the Apple store happened to have one screen replacement left in that size. The cheapest new Apple laptop would cost over 2000.00. Both kids just got new laptops for Christmas so the last thing I wanted to do was buy a third. So, I bit the bullet and went for the screen replacement. I am chalking this up to a very expensive lesson learned and water of any kind will never get close to my computer again. We already have about 8 inches of snow this morning with another 6 inches on the way. It is distracting me from my computer crisis! Fingers crossed that I get my computer back today! Meanwhile I am baking simit and making a big Turkish brunch.

Hi all! My computer is still at the shop. I am hoping it will be fixed today. Be sure you take care when cleaning your screen and don't make this mistake! It is costly....660.00 for a new screen! UGH! At least we are supposed to get more snow tomorrow and that makes me very happy! I hope to be back soon.

Hi all! I am typing on my daughter's computer right now. I cleaned my computer screen with a damp paper towel and I fried the screen. It is being replaced (very expensive!) and I will have it in a day or two (I hope)! Meanwhile I will just be rolling in the wonderful snow (8+ inches) that we got overnight. I'll keep you posted on when I will be back to my regular posting. Fingers crossed that the computer gods will smile on me!

She just had a bit of breakfast and still had some on her lips.
Please Santa send more snow!
