The Mac that lives
My beloved Mac died last summer. It would turn on, then shut off. Or turn on, and freeze. This computer was probably 8 or 9 years old, and had worked absolutely perfectly every day up until that one day. It was a hard realization when I couldn't revive it. The guy at the local apple repair store told me it's not worth updating and trying to fix. So I sadly stuck the computer in a spare room on a shelf and accepted the fact my Mac was dead.
No computer makes blogging pretty much impossible. Eventually I was able to use my boyfriends laptop to get blogging again and now his laptop has died. A new computer was on the radar now but it will be a while until I can save for another Mac. I was cleaning the house tonight and looked at my old Mac sitting on the shelf and thought "hmmmm why not, I'll try it".
I took it downstairs, plugged it in, pushed the on button and like sweet music to my ears, I hear the trademark sound of when your Mac powers on. This thing fired right up, and is working like its brand new. I can't explain it, but it is probably the most exciting thing ever for me right now. A good computer is like your favourite riding boots, comfortable and reliable.
So, I can finally blog again. 2019 has started off on the right foot for me so far, and this is just another thing to keep the positive vibes flowing. Penny and I spent the afternoon having a jumping lesson, and it feels like we are actually learning things together and improving. It has been a good Sunday, looking forward to spending the night cleaning tack, and catching up on blogs with a glass of wine.
