I think that's what I've managed to be this week. (Good old Gen X persistence. Or maybe not "Gen X," maybe this is something I mainly have my parents to thank for).
When I got home last night, I thought, "I'll restart the home computer, leave it on all night" (I normally do not leave it on except when using it). "It'll either heal itself or I'll know for sure it's dead."
Well, apparently it just needed to cycle through a bunch of antivirus updates, because it seems okay this morning. (The antivirus "YOUR COMPUTER IS AT RISK" screen kept popping up and locking everything. Yeah, my next computer will have a different antivirus program on it.)
And of course, earlier, I fixed my borked Firefox over at work. ("What does the Firefox say?" Heh.) And I will argue another "fixing" came in the form of my rewritten paper being provisionally accepted.
So anyway, since my one big worry about losing home connectivity for a while is gone, here are a couple photos of stuff I've been working on:
The horse pillowcases
And this is a mystery project, though SOME of you might guess it from its Flickr title. It's a strand of Bernat acrylic, Paton's "Boa," and Fun Fur held together. I decided to make it after seeing all the "fight breast cancer pink" yarns out and realizing this may be the best time of year to get a bunch of different pink yarns.
(No, it has nothing to do with fighting breast cancer. I admit,I'm struggling with breast cancer awareness month this year because I'm awfully aware of it right now, what with a friendly acquaintance going through treatment)
