My computer didn't arrive as scheduled, but it's back now, and I almost have it completely loaded again. Luckily I have lots of back-ups of my documents, photos, music, and scrap booking graphics. I own the programs I use, so I just had to re-install them. It takes time, but I haven't lost anything. It's sure nice to be back to normal again. I can soooo tell the difference between the other less expensive HP laptop and this computer, which is an HP ENVY dv6 with an intel CORE i7 processor and a back lit keyboard, which I do use often in the evening. This is just a better machine and it performs so much smoother and faster - it has better color, better sound, a better keyboard, better features, it's just better all around. I love this computer; I didn't realize how great it was until it was MIA for a couple of weeks!
We are in a different campsite this time, one of my favorites on the other side of the campground, and we're settled in again for a while.
The horses that were here a week ago only came that one day so far, and I got some photos with my old camera, but it doesn't have the good zoom lens. I counted 24 horses, and these are the best of those shots.
|Mare with her new foal.|
|Many of the horses were laying down resting, and there were always horses guarding them.|
|More horses and their guards. These were really sleeping, and were laying there for a while. I love the way they are protected by the horses watching them, but also facing different directions looking outward.|
|Mare watching over her colt. There was another shot which I lost, unfortunately, of a new foal laying down, sound asleep with the mare standing over it, providing shade. Horses have good instincts, don't they?|
|These are the horses across the lake, and some cows and bulls, too.|
I had a memory card in my new Canon and got some really good closeups, but when I tried to load them into my computer, it said I needed to "format" the card, which meant I had no photos on the card. I don't know what happened because it looked like I was saving photos, but they were all lost.
Since that first day the horses were here, I've only seen them over on the other side of the lake, a bit too far for close up photos. Hopefully the horses will be back on this side of the lake soon and I'll get some shots of the new foals before they get too big. There were 3 or 4 new ones, and a few colts, too.
From me and Katie, have a great weekend, everyone! :)
