FINALLY!!!

What a wonderful Christmas present! I got a new computer at work. Ok, so it wasn't a present per se, but it's as good as one to me! I can now email without the letters skipping and catching. I can send interoffice emails without waiting five minutes for the computer to decide it wants to do so. But most importantly, I'm back to blogging! My Internet at home is so fickle (and hates uploading pictures) that I do most if not all of my blogging at work. It's good to be back in blog-topia! I have missed you guys so very much and can't wait to see what you've all been up to.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Ours was. We kept it quiet, just like we like it, except when spending time with family. Things always get a little crazy when you have more than 15 people in a house!! But we were able to go home to the Manor and enjoy the peace and quiet it affords.

And now, without further ado: Monday Musings!!!

"If there is a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." ~Toni Morrison

Happy, happy Monday.

Hooray! I'm glad you're back to the blog world. I enjoyed our 4 day weekend and looking forward to another one this week! If only they were always...

A new computer is a great gift (whether it was meant as a gift or not)! We are all so used to our computers now that when they don't run right, it totally messes up everything.

Glad you had a good Christmas.

Happy Monday to you as well, Jen! IS it Monday? This is the time of year I completely lose track of which day it is. I'm glad your Christmas was good and how lovely to have a new computer!

It's great to have you back!

Welcome back! I've missed you. =) Today's quote is so in tune - yesterday I was in Barnes & Noble looking for a book that does not appear to exist - guess I'd best get started!

A new computer sounds like the perfect way to end one year and start the next.

Good for you...I think. What is it about work that they don't understand the productivity of good equipment?
It's not just GIGO for the electronics; it's for the people as well.
sigh.
At least your work stress levels should decrease, right?

That quote is too true. After reading so many almost-perfect books, I finally decided I'd just start writing my own. That was seven years ago. I just finished the first draft of my eighth book and am half way done with my ninth.

I'm glad you're back, I've missed your writing. I've had a very busy Christmas. I'm used to living very quietly, and Christmas is always full of commotion for me. It's fun but very tiring.

Congrats on the new computer. Loveliness!

PS: I must ask, did you get your blog title, "Woolgatherings" from "Bird by bird" by Lamott? I'm curious.

Welcome back, Jen. Happy you can now blog easier and quicker, and that you had a lovely holiday.

I'm so glad you are back, Jen! Gees, what did we do before computers, the internet, and blogging?
