Anyway, your quote came in a bit timely in my life. I needed that reminder.. perhaps I'll blog about it soon.. And sorry I forgot to answer your question. Will get back on your previous post.

Wishing you a great week and thank you for showing those refreshing pictures.

Hi Diane, That is a gorgeous mosaic, love the cloud. Sorry to read your computer crashed, hope you were able to get your pictures. Yes I back up my photos. Sorry it has been so long since my last blog visit. Take care and enjoy your day. hugs, Jen.

Danielle said...

Oh yes, triple backed up ;)...love the sky mosaic...very calming to put this together after your crazy computer week I am sure.

I loved your shot of the Honeymoon Cottage...I just love that place...I have several over the years and I hate to see the day when it is gone.

Don't you just love Cedar Key?!

Into Vintage said...

Not this week ... but I usually do only not on a regular basis. I also back up my entire blog too. I think I would cry if it disappeared. :-)

Terri Buster said...

Lovely clouds- and yes- I back up files all the time! Learned that lesson the hard way.

Prims and Annies said...

Hi...That happened to me but my computer repair man was able to retreive them and put on the new computer. I have all my stuff backed up..also have my computer programs..Windows.. on a disk and my computer repair man said to make another copy because if the disk gets a slight nick on it...it will not work. I think this happens to almost everyone.
Hope you have a really great week.
Smiles and hugs
Maxie

Jeanne said...

I see pictures in your clouds! Saw you at Sunny Simple Life! Happy Sunday!

Sharing Shadymont said...

Thanks for your visit and comment, and for this reminder. I'm so slack about doing that :(

Have a wonderful week.

Jeanne said...

Fabulous! Wouldn't it be fun to have a tea party with just bloggers?

Vee said...

a very wee tiny wittle "no" though I know that I should. Thank you for the reminder.

Donna said...

I'm glad to see you posting! I hope you are recovering your files back! And yes, I do backups throughout the day with my Mac and Time Machine. It runs in the background so I never have to even think about it!

Heather said...

Awww. I am so sorry about the computer. That happened to me with my ipod. I had a ton of photos and app information. I hadn't backed it up because my laptop was full. So, I dropped it in a glass of water. I didn't know you weren't supposed to turn it on because that would short it. Got some pictures back... So sad... I feel for you! Thanks for the reminder! I need to try to do that!!!!
Blessings,
Heather

eileeninmd said...

Beautiful sky captures and mosaic. Not today, but I did back everything up yesterday. Have a wonderful week ahead.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Well I am about to do it right now. I usually pick one day per week to do it.

How is your computer doing?

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Hi Diane,

Your cloud pictures are wonderful! Hubby and I have noticed so many pretty afternoon and early evening skies this summer. The clouds can make the sky look so much more interesting.

I backed my blog up yesterday evening -- did I pass the quiz? :)

Have a wonderful week!

Denise

Debbiedoo's said...

This is a really good questions. I do have my photos backed up just in case. I have my blog on automatic back up too. I have lost a lot in the past and don't want risk it.

podso said...

Thanks for the reminder, I thought of that earlier today as it's been awhile. Am backing up now as I write. Have a good week, your clouds are lovely!

Mama Zen said...

Lovely mosaic!

Lavender Cottage said...

Hello Diane
Nice collage of fully clouds.
I always back up my work to an external hard drive as well as a memory stick as I've heard too many horror stories.

We do have an external harddrive to back up files especially the files and files of photos I have taken. I love the shapes of clouds. There is never one the same. Great mosaic. Valerie

Bernie H said...

Woo-hoo! I did well on your pop quiz. It's been a hard-learnt lesson though. Experience is a great teacher! Loved your cloud shots, and that wonderful quote.

Della said...

Oh I love that heart in the cloud!

My pics go directly to my external hard drive, but I do have a few downloads to move over still. I'll get right on it!
XO!

Kim, USA said...

Yes I do! I learned my lesson in a hard way. Your question also reminds me to transfer my pictures to my external hard drive ^_^ Thanks for the reminder ^_^

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

Jann Olson said...

Love the cloud photos Diane. Sorry about your computer. Hubby backs things up every now and then. We have been lucky and haven't had a crash. One never knows when it might happen.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh, sorry to hear this! Thank you for the reminder!! Since the DIL is staying with me in the guest room where I back up my computer, I have been lazy about it...I will get it done tomorrow!

Katherine Wolak said...

SOOOO need to do that! LOL I think everyone should! :)

Ingmarie We said...

The sky's the limit...... Lovely photos. My external hard drive brook down, but DH had help to save all my photos.

Jordan@the2seasons said...

I always would forget to back up so I signed up for Carbonite. This automatically backs up and it was the best money I have spent. Recently my computer crashed but I didn't lose a thing. I highly recommend.

Rosewalk Cottage said...

I need to do that. thanks for the reminder and I'm so sorry that it happened to you. I love your fluffy cloud mosaics.

BunnyKissd said...

Beautiful photos and thanks for the reminder!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

What a pretty mosaic!!
So sorry about your computer. Which reminds me - have not done a back up in a while. Thanks for the reminder. Hope you get it fixed soon. Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.

Hey girl, thanks for the shout out! Next time you hear of a craft show, or fall festival let me know. There is the Great Day in the Country in November:

Maybe we can meet up. And thanks for the reminder about backing up my files. I downloaded something for my husband last night and thought it wiped out everythng. So today I've got my task ahead of me. Love the pics of the tractor in the field. See! Most people don't know Florda has rural areas. They think we are all beach and tourist traps. Hugs~Ames

Lorrie Orr said...

Wonderful cloud photos. Thanks for the reminder to back up photos and data. I'm not very good about that.

Yael from Home Garden Diggers said...

I love your cloud photos. Re the quiz....I have both Carbonite and Apple cloud, so my photos get automatically backed up.....thank goodness.....came in handy when my hard drive died and I needed a new one.

Teresa said...

Wonderful quote! I love all those white clouds. I do have most of my photos on an external drive, but it's time to transfer them again. Thanks so much for the reminder.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Just beautiful, and yes, I have an external hard drive, and it must be getting full too;')~
