Quick Photoless Post

So my MacBook Air and I went over to Des Moines to the Apple Store yesterday to visit the GeniusBar. I'm not sure the guy was really a genius, but it's working now, and has been two days in a row. So.... I'm hoping for the best.

While I was in Des Moines, I did a little bit of shopping - places we don't have in Iowa City that I was accustomed to having in San Antonio, like Sephora, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, the Body Shop. I didn't spend much money, but it was nice to browse. Call me shallow... I miss good shopping and wish it wasn't 120 miles away.

We've got major flooding here in Iowa City. I doubt it will affect me, but it's still pretty amazing. And scary. And it's still raining -- right now we're under a severe thunderstorm watch.

I'm sort of addicted to watching the radar online, which probably isn't a good thing. It just freaks me out!

I'm in a little knitting doldrum. I'm knitting, but not much. I'm not taking pictures of my knitting (I'm over half done with Brambler, and haven't taken a single photo). I'm reading blogs, but only a few. This will pass, I'm sure, but in the meantime, my blog will be pretty boring. Sorry...

I'm glad the Mac-not-so-genius was able to help you.

I've been watching the flooding - scary stuff! Be careful, and don't drive into moving water! Remember: those signs mean five FEET, not five INCHES! (Wait a minute...that should sound really familiar to you!)

Man, I hope they didn't charge you for fixing your apple that came with some brown mushy parts.

Yeah all that flat land--I can see how it would flood pretty easy. STay dry!

Everyone goes through a little mid-summer knitting slump. Maybe yours just came a bit early. Send some of that rain our way...

Just came over to make sure you are ok.

I'm feeling oh so special...
and jealous of the mac air...
and right there with you about missing good shopping. Nothing quite like browsing some of those stores.
