I have two computers that sit side by side on my desk. Yep. Two. (Which doesn't include the Mac in my art room for artistic stuff.) And I will admit that my son once observed that my desk top screens look like a digital version of a "Hoarders" episode.
I had to buy a new computer a few months back because the old one was full and bogged down and even though I couldn't use it without swearing in frustration - I couldn't bear to delete or get rid of anything that was on it.
My latest passion (and greatest diversion) is Pinterest. I can't get enough. It's the ultimate eye candy smorgasbord - a whole community of people (like me) who probably spend too much time on the computer finding really cool stuff that they love on the internet - and then (enthusiastically) sharing it (and themselves) with others by "pinning" pictures onto personalized bulletin boards.
Like the above picture of Apple Dumplings which I found last night. And which made my mouth water in anticipation enough that I had to track down the website with the recipe, made a quick trip to the store for the ingredients and ......made this morning for breakfast. (Yes - with the ice cream - it IS DaniMonth y'all!!)
As the snow was gently falling outside my window in the early hours of dawn, the smell of pastry, apples and cinnamon filled my house.
We are talking some serious yum here. Mind. Body. And spirit.
So much yum that this made it to the top of my weekly "bliss list"!!
But don't take my word for it - try it for yourself - with the ice cream of course! (wink)
