Too Hot

The weather has not been understanding of my little garden. It has been a windy season so far and the hot weather has made it uncomfortable. The plants have a slight lean.

Christina has been well overall. A few bouts of fever and rash, but docs say nothing to worry about. Dad's worry, enough said.

Christina was full of kisses and wanted lots of cuddle time over Father's Day weekend. I enjoyed it a lot.

I have not been spending much time on the computer and trying to do more around the house and yard. Shelving may be the next project. I need shelves in the basement and kitchen. Not sure which to start with.

Pictures, pictures, pictures. I have been keeping up on pictures and have a good start on my backup solution. Hmm, reminder... BACKUP. Make sure you backup everything you want. And make sure you have three copies in two different locations and on different media.

That reminds me I should work on backing up the home movies today.


Enjoy a coffee and some good company.

Hard Drive Failure

Thank goodness for backups.

I had a hard drive fail. The drive had 1.85TB of data. All the pictures were backed up along with videos. I also found an old copy of the music and saved that. I did loose the movies that I had saved for watching on the network.

So BACKUP backup BACKUP!!!

The drive failure set me back on pictures and updating the slideshow. I should be back on track in a week or two.

It's been a busy time. Couple friends moved and I gave a small hand. Christina has wanted to go go go. The holiday came and went.

For Easter we went to grandpa's house. Last weekend we went to the Children's Museum on Saturday. We colored eggs and made cookies.

And we have been walking a lot outside in the gait trainer.

This morning Christina lost her first tooth. She was super excited.

Christina's Aquatic PT

Christina did very well at her first session of aquatic physical therapy. Jeff, her instructor, did a great job with her. I am confident Christina will benefit from the sessions.

I am always a little concerned when starting with a new person. Jeff was calm and steady with Christina. Before the session was done Christina even gave him a kiss. Christina showed similar signs to when we are in the pool together. It did not take her long to relax enough to enjoy the water.

Close to Home

I read the first part of a blog yesterday and it interested me. I was at work so I printed it so I could read it better. It hit close to home. More like it hit too close. I made it through a few paragraphs and had to stop. It is not an article I can read while at work.

Worth reading:

Many of the items Julie describes I also do with Christina. Makes me think about that precious time I spend with the princess.
