I mulled over some ideas, I drafted a couple of posts, I had the best of intentions… I promise! But transitioning from a blissful two-week holiday break and plenty of time to myself to the busy-ness of my regular schedule proved to be a bit of a shock to the system… and without a commitment to NaBloPoMo to keep me diligently posting every day, I’m afraid writing – and my blog – took a back seat to living life (and trying to catch up on sleep!).
Unfortunately this coming week doesn’t promise to be a whole lot better, schedule-wise, as I have several irons in the fire including the startup of Italian classes (Level 2!)… but I’ll do my best over the next few weeks to settle into a routine that includes writing and tending to my blog.
Thank you for sticking with me!
In Case You Missed It
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along…
Random Delights & Inspiration
Found in my travels…
- ‘Here Comes the Sun’ In Spanish Unemployment Office – this video is a total day-brightener!
- How To Watermark Images from Your Phone with Marksta. I haven’t given this a try yet, but it’s definitely on my “To Do” list (not so much from a “please don’t steal my photos” perspective as a “please visit my blog if you like this photo” approach).
- The Lumineers – my latest musical discovery, and quite possibly my favourite album of 2012. Modern folk rock, obviously Dylan-influenced, with a hint of Simon & Garfunkel thrown in now and then for good measure… just good, good stuff.
- The Magic Adjustable Ring: A Better Way to Begin Crochet in the Round. It’s a miracle! I still need to give this some practice before I have it mastered, but it’s a brilliant (and attractive) option for crochet projects “in the round.”
- “Bodhisattva in metro HQ” – an oldie but absolutely a goodie. If this video doesn’t make you laugh loud and long… I mean really laugh… you’re made of sterner stuff than I!
