This weekend I started a smaller project on the train down to my folks’ house. Gloves are the thing. I have some fine yarn and wanted a pair of fingerless gloves. I’m mostly through with the left one. I’ll take it up later when I’m needing a portable project again– I’ve got plenty of time before I need gloves.
Consulted with Mrs. Schwarm on their site. I need to figure out which pictures they actually have on the server and what passwords I need to FTP new ones up.
Today is so suddenly busy-feeling. I’m going to have to one-step-at-a-time it to get anything done… I swear. There’s recording, writing, cleaning, phone calls to make… oy vey.
I’ve been continuing with the random web thing.
I put out another podcast and I’m still working on content, form, and all that. I’m getting a little better at the editing and recording, I think. We’ll see.
My Duck Brand Duct Tape and I have been sealing up the screens so we can have a better chance of not getting deluged by bugs when I open the windows to let the beautiful weather in.
Craftwise: Still working on that afgan and trying to get some more ideas for fictions.
I really wish I could get a better handle on my heroine. I have this like schiziod thing going on where I think I’ve got three actuall heroines going on here. I need to take some time where I think and reorganize and get the stuff from last year’s NaNoWriMo together and start sifting.
I’m sorry this is so damned incoherent. I’ve been killing time on an epic scale lately.
Okay, I’ve been sort of procrastinating like crazy as much as anything, but it was sort of projecty and crafty. I made a bunch of new images for a design for my personal blog. I scrapped most of them in the end, but they’re still worth having around. I did the redesign. I said ‘the hell with it’ and just put out a podcast. I worked (for some money) on getting things straightened out for someone else’s site…. and I revisited my 43 things, finished filling out my Yahoo 360, and Myspace (at the request of my cousin).
I did this while also running all the ‘keep life going’ errands that cropped up this week and trying to work in some editing and of course, more work on that afgan and major decluttering… I have SPRING FREAKIN’ FEVER!
In technical news… I did finally get my video camera out and test my theory. The memory stick lets me make videos I can burn to DVD, unlike the teeny tapes. I am a happy, happy camper.
This week my door and my library were my big projects.
I’ve been working on setting up a database for all our books. I’m just weird and anal and love having searchable lists of things. I did our movies a few years back. I’m just so glad I did. I think I’ll be glad I did the library, too. It’s especially helpful for series that I might not remember which ones I have and don’t have.
My front door is just about to fall apart. The corner under the knob especially lately. There’s this crack I can see the light through. I bought a box of 4 braces at Wal-Mart, and tried to stabilize my scarily unstable door. It’s okay… I think it helped more than it might have hurt, although I think the wood is rotting, particularly on the outside.
