Every so often I feel the need to cocoon and energize. I think I am an introvert by nature and need time alone to refocus, regroup and go forward. Know what I mean? And that’s where I’ve been. Spending more time inward. Living a little more slowly. Unfortunately, the blogging side of life gets pushed to the back burner. I am sorry. I do appreciate your visits and comments! Really, I do!
So, today I’m giving myself a gently kick in the tush to get back to blogging a little more regularly again. It’s dawning on me that the holidays are just around the corner and I’m afraid that if I blink, they might pass me by. And… I pledged to finish 6 non-work related projects by the end of the year for Jacquie’s Joy in the New Year Challenge. Time is running out! I’m amazed at some of the double digit UFO’s that others have pledged to finish. You are brave! Brave, indeed.
While the sun happened to be shining today, I spent some time taking photos of quilts in the back yard. The entire time I was outside, the neighbor’s Great Dane, Bounder, kept barking at me. And it’s not just a tiny little bark. It’s a deep, echoing bark. You’d think after all these years he’d recognize me! Nope, I’m a new wonder to greet each and every time.
And another random thought… does anyone know anything about computer monitor color calibration? I got a new notebook computer a couple of months ago and am struggling with the color. All the reds and oranges on my screen appear neon. I’ve even purchased the Spyder3 Express to help color calibrate the monitor. While the reds are a little less neon, they are still in the neon range. I’ve been jumping between my computer and my hubby’s computer to compare. But that is getting old. Any thoughts on the subject would be more than greatly appreciated!
*The red chairs have gone to the other side of the house for the winter – under the eaves where, hopefully, there will be more protection from the rain. I heard on the news that for the month of November we have already gotten twice the amount of rain we normally get. I’m not sure what that is saying about the winter ahead of us. Hopefully it means that the skiing in the mountains will be good, but the streets in our neighborhood will be snow-free.
