A Post is Worth a Thousand Pictures?

I have been absent (sort of) from my blog lately.  Well, I kept popping in to check on things, but haven't been posting.  For Christmas I received from my dear husband a laptop!!  And here I am in a rather silly photo with eyes half closed opening said delight! 

I was thrilled to get it ... no more running up and downstairs to check on emails and blogs!!   The only downfall (and it's a BIG one) is that it came installed with Windows 8 .   And this, my friends, is the reason for my complete slow-down as I wade through this new territory. 

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid of computers, and I actually enjoy figuring out programs (especially when it comes to photos), but Windows 8 runs along a very twisty, tricky path, and it's easy to take the wrong path and read the wrong sign and end up in the wrong part of town!

And although my "Windows 8 for Dummies" book assures me that downloading photos in Windows 8 "couldn't be easier" ... I've had some major difficulties. So after reinstalling this that and the other thing, I've finally been successful at downloading some photos even though the menus and windows never seem to look the same twice!!
So yesterday being New Year's Day and the day I pack away all things Christmas ... I thought I would say goodbye to a few of my favourites until next time, sooooOOooo ... goodbye nesting Santas!!
Goodbye lovely advent calendar!!  (sent to me from my British granny in 1962 and brought out every Christmas since ... how I loved opening those little paper doors when I was very young!)
Goodbye Nutcracker Father Time and Baby New Year!!
And now the slate has been wiped clean, and we won't be crossing off the days before Christmas for quite some time ... whew!! 
Happy New Year everyone!!  Let's hope this year finds us all some peace (I for one could really use it!!).  Now I'd like to figure out one of those mosaic photo thingies, and I know I saw a template somewhere in Windows 8 ... I just can't remember where!!
