Thing #8

And I thought I had information overload before! This will take a little more exploring. I signed up to a bunch of things, but the amount of information that comes up is overwhelming. I think I'll have to simplify this a little bit, maybe narrow things down. Maybe I need to hunt up more specific feeds than I did. Time was a little short for me when I did this. I'll go back and try to trim things down to a more manageable size next time I get the chance.

The feeds could be a lot of fun, when I get the right ones down. Some of the book feeds will be good for the "What's a good book for me to read?" question that I can find a bit troublesome to answer.

For my personal time, I think food feeds and knitting feeds and gardening feeds will be fun-- but big time wasters. I don't need to be glued to the computer screen anymore than I already am! Afterall, what good are recipes and knitting instruction and gardening tips if you don't actually get out there and use them?

Thing #7, Week 3

This is my scanned image. It's a picture from Easter 1954. Don't you just love the hats? The little blonde in the front is me. Yes, I'm old enough to remember a car that looked like that. Frightening, isn't it?

Hard at Work (Thing #6)

Here's some of the group, busy reshelving the books as the stacks go back up. That's been easier than getting these pictures on this blog, but now that I've done it, it'll probably go quicker the next time.

Under Construction at the Beach (Thing #6)

Here's what the Point Beach Branch has been looking like lately! It's been a change of pace, but when we reopen we should look gorgeous! And I'm not just talking about the staff! As far as the blogging goes, I got a bit confused with getting the photos set up and unto the blog. I had to read and re-read, but I think I've finally got it.

Thing #2 & #3

The easiest step of the 7 1/2 would have to be "Play!" I can waste hours playing on a computer, or with any number of new ideas about topics that interest me. The hardest would probably be using technology to my advantage. Time is always short (isn't it for everyone?) and keeping up with the latest and the greatest in technology is often at the bottom of my must-do list. If it isn't something I need to know for work, I usually don't bother with it.

Now I've Created a Blog

When I was a child, creating a blog would have conjured up thoughts of something worthy of a horror movie. Perhaps some bog creature would have been called Blog and would have preyed upon children and dogs, or perhaps some evil fog would have been know as Blog as it engulfed whole cities. How far away those days of simple, single-syllable fear! Now, blog is this-- an entity that my employer has encouraged me to create. Farewell, fond fearful blogs of yore! Welcome to the new blog!
