Pure Genius

One hour and 45 minutes later. Saved. It's all good.

A few months ago when I started running out of space while downloading photos, I (finally) bought an external hard drive and started backing things up. It had been on my 'to do' list for a long time and am I ever lucky I finally 'did' it when I did. It's the only thing that saved me.
Back it up ladies!

They are all there and with the exception of the last 2 weeks, all organized, categorized and just as I left them. Whew. 11, 528 photos. 30 countries. Countless weddings. And let's not forget the first 9.5 months of the twins.
Whew and whew.

I celebrated by going around the corner to the Chelsea Market. I adore this place--a true foodie's dream. I'm actually glad I don't live anywhere near here because if I did I'd be fat and broke. The Lobster Place lured me in with their lunchbox special and I sat down, ALONE and unhurried and savored my lunch. I don't think I've done that since the boys were born.
Then I got really crazy and bought 2 pastries at Sarabeth bakery which I plan to savor tonight with a glass of ice cold milk.

The sun is shining. Grunter is babbling in his crib (he should be asleep). It's a good day.

Yay for hard drive back up!

I love the Chelsea Market. We had some fab. cinammon raisin bread from Sarabeth the last time we were there. Yum.

Glad you enjoyed your "me" time.

What a relief! I love the Chelsea Market, too-- would you believe Speedy had NEVER BEEN until I took her there a couple of months ago? I nearly burst into tears at the fish place, for want of sushi...

I am so glad you were able to get your pics back! Your post has reminded that I need to get an external hard drive ASAP.

I am so glad you had a bit of indulgence today, you deserve it! Enjoy your treats :-)

Yay for backing up, good food and for "me" time. Also, I am really enjoying your daily posts, even when I cannot do a one-handed reply with babies in my arms.

How ironic is this? I was sitting at the lobster place 8 days ago... Still so bummed we couldn't get together! I'm so happy all of your pics were saved!
