O man, doncha just hate Sundays that fly by, frittered away. Breakfast out, followed by the major monthly grocery shopping at Costco, Winco --- and Big R (for the critters), I was bambozzled by the time we got home. Read a book about the Tea Trade in China, (Costco had an array of new books and I couldna resist), then later in the day I remembered that I needed to post for my Fearless Females series. Well, that require photographing my grandmothers gold-plated pin which is composed of her initialwhich strayed my mind into a variety of labyrinths that seems to surround the complexities of my Grandmother Agnes Laura Sigford. After I finally posted for March 6th, I puttered around doing set-up for the rest of the week, chatted a bit on Skype, and called it a day.
This past week I accomplished the following:
* Wrote and scheduled the Week 10 offering for 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History (scheduled for March 9th).
* Posted Days 1,2,3,4,5, &6 for the Fearless Females series.
* Worked on the rewrite for the "Clay" piece. Had some major learning curves with "Open Office" and finally decided to cut and paste. Sometimes old tried and true methods are more time efficient --- but I learned a few things along the way.
* Spent some time on Picassa. I actually have not a clue how this thing works, but some how -- without my knowledge or intent -- I have pictures on Picassa. I think this may be a functional way to set up pictures for the book of Uncle Ralph's Letters, but we will see. Perhaps I can find someone in town that knows how to use Picassa.
My intent for the week is the following:
* draft Release form and letter for the book on UR'sL (This is now a 3-week left over. Hmm, a tad bit of resistance, I see.)
* Finish the rewrite of "Clay" and submit for publication.
* Post for Fearless Females series.
The past week has been an OK week as far as writing, blogging is concerned. I wandered into areas that took up too much time, but I like learning and delving into stuff I don't know about. I dinna finish the piece I had started for the COG's Womens History. I am also finding that the two blogging series are major time slurpers. If these series become too much of a time-drain, I may have to just let them slip by the wayside. However, I am finding them useful for some sort pieces that I haven't thought about before, so -- I'll wait for more clarity about this situation.
