Everyone’s welcome! Clean your house with us, one little task at a time.
Hope is on Spring Break, so Jared, with all his free time (ha), took us all on a little mini vaycay Monday and Tuesday. Destination? The Great White North…
…a.k.a. Traverse City, Michigan.
Jared found a super-duper great deal on a nice hotel (because what crackpot people go NORTH for Spring Break? I ask you) and so we went. We paid cash for everything, too! Dave Ramsey would be proud of us.
We asked a friend from Traverse City what we should do and see. She then queried her TC Facebook friends. Top must-see tourist attraction? The Germ Tree at the mall.
I think they were joking.
I’ve read that writers should keep track of their work time as a means of increasing productivity and word counts. I’m not one to keep up an Excel sheet, but being a happy Ubuntu end-user, I went in search of a (free) timer program in the Ubuntu Software Center. I found this.
Yesterday I had both the early morning and the morning to work (woohoo!). I tracked my time for each task, then sorted from greatest to least.
Interesting, no? At least it’s interesting to me. The “Household” time was spent doing taxes. That I only spent 20 minutes wasting time is, I think, a HUGE accomplishment. That I spent zero time reading blogs (not quite true, but close) and working on the novel (very true) is telling. Makes me want to flip those numbers around.
Added to my design portfolio (click image to enlarge):
The fine ladies requesting this logo wanted something Marian in feeling, with a rose. Last I heard, however, they hadn’t decided between green or no green in the type, so I include them both here for your viewing pleasure.
This one was for my husband, who wanted something very specific for a new project of his.
Last week I mentioned the possibility of doing April’s Camp NaNo.
The jury’s still out on whether or not I will, in fact, do it. I’ve got a “feeling” that maybe I shouldn’t. I wasn’t going to set an outrageously high goal for myself, but… still. Gut feeling.
I wanted to share some videos with you, but I’m already 22 minutes over my allotted time for 7QTs. Next week, then!
