About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

So, last night...

...I took ten cans of tomato soup over to Secondborn’s house. Along with my CPU, six doll hats, and four dolls. And the cheesecake that the new guy sent home with me on Saturday night.

I came home with fresh leftover cornbread *and* the USB port installed; when I left, Secondborn was photo-shopping stray hairs from the pictures of dolls-in-hats and dolls-wearing-jewelry.

It was Fambly. It was [not my] Home. It was BeliEvening. [Ergo, I was somewhat obedient.] And poor little Chutzpah was home alone, except for Dolly the Llama.

Well, mostly alone. She did have her new bear. I don’t have any hats her size, and it’s only fair that she has to stay home sometimes; she gets to go a lot more places than the big dolls, because she is so portable.

Secondborn got some amazing photos of the dolls. Not all of them will be the best choices for the Etsy shop. Some we will use to put together a banner for my doll blog. And eventually I’ll have her do one for the spinning blog.

So [obviously] the computer is back together, and tonight after Knit Night I will finish installing the new printer and maybe even get my iPod fired up.

I’m making a list of all the things I want to do and need to get before I open the Etsy shop. Rewritable CD’s for all the photos Secondborn will be taking. More yarn in different colorways. I need to decide on packaging. And I need to create enough inventory that joining the Fort Worth Etsy group and selling at one of the shows would be worthwhile, assuming that I would be able to sell on Saturday but not be required to be there on Sunday.

My attorney will be out of the office all day today and tomorrow, and most of Thursday. I will be standing by the door to the break room with a “Will Type for Food” sign.

Speaking of which [food], it’s time to pack my lunchbox and get ready to scoot on out the door.

You might find that a several gig flash drive works better and is more economical than rewritable CDs.

Yes what Jenni said. You can get an 8gig thumb drive for like $20-$30 at Target/BestBuy/Walmart. Not that you need 8gigs per se, but it's the most economical.
