I find my old art works in my computer

I’ve changed several laptops/computers along these years. Every time I change a new one I left some files in the previous one. Of course I back up all the files in a separate drive but I don’t need to fill the new computer with bunch of older documents that I didn’t even look at. Couple […]

Some of my wood works

One day when I watched TV with my husband in our previous house in GA, he said “you should get a bookshelf for your office area.” I answered, “I can build one by myself.” He replied “Nah, you are just saying, you can’t do such thing like that.” I looked at him and answered seriously […]
