Back up your back-up.

You know what’s really awesome?  LOSING YOUR DIGITAL PICTURES.  FOREVER.  BUH-BYE.

But Jenni, why didn’t you back up your pictures?  Why didn’t I think of that?  Oh, wait!  I did!  I really nice (at the time) external hard drive made just for my Mac, that I took precious time to move ALL of my files (documents, music, and pictures) from the last 7 years.  And after I get rid of the old computer and plug my external hard drive, what do I discover?  Why, all of my pictures from 2010 to 2014, mysteriously gone.

Did I say awesome?  I meant AHDJ#&$*&%*&$!!!!!!!

Whew. Okay.  Had to let that out.  I’m back.  Anyway, lesson learned, back up your back-up.  Have more than one source for your important stuff, like pictures.

last year’s batch… a little darker than I was aiming for, but really easy!

The one picture that was saved from last year (because I posted it on the Book), was of these really neat eggs that I colored last year for Easter.  I was so excited that something was saved, I decided to make it again to post.  I hope maybe a few of my readers will take this on as their Easter-egg coloring egg-stravaganzas commence.

Materials and ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • water (for boiling)
  • pot with lid (for boiling)
  • bowl with icy water (for an ice bath)
  • Paper towel
  • liquid food coloring
  • plastic bags (one per color)
  • white vinegar

Directions:

  1. Place eggs in a pot 1/3 full of cold water.
  2. Bring water to a boil, then remove the pot from heat (keep the lid on). Allow eggs to cook in the water for about 8-10 minutes.
