A 'crash' and enjoying the scenery - Maree

“Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” 
- Eddie Cantor 


Well, I've had the biggest 'crash' in history (and I know Kate has been through something similar?) - Windows crashed on my MAC and as I had not done a back-up on my Seagate removable back-up disc for about a month, I lost quite a bit of information. So I've been MIA for a while, trying to sort it all out. 

I don't often work on the MAC side of my computer, was so used to MS Windows XP and it had some programs which I used often which was not available from Apple. So I re-installed Windows, but couldn't install any programs because I needed the program drivers to install internet connectivity, and I couldn't connect to the internet to down-load the drivers because I didn't have the drivers to install internet connectivity! Does that make sense?! 

Anyway, the outcome was that I was forced to start working in MAC and oh my word! I am totally hooked! I was able to find some similar programs I so much loved on Windows from Apple, installed those and after a couple of hiccups, I'm up and away. 

This is the dam at Spring Farm and is always full and I've often wondered where the water comes from. Yesterday I was told there's a natural spring further up on the property that has been slowly running at the same, unchanged pace for years. This is also the place where I often sit and watch the cattle and do some quick sketches - there's always something new to discover.
