Like others, I’m not happy with the changes to google reader. Too white, too stark but most of all they axed shared items! I loved shared items, used it all the time, not only to ‘file’ articles for myself, but read shared items of others, finding yet more gems. The only solution I thought was to create yet another board at pinterest;) Which solved my filing, but didn’t allow me to share. Now a solution has been shared, (see comment) and I’m off to check out feedly. (Kind of sounds like Feelie in Deltora Quest)
Whilst we are discussing technology, are you happy with your photo software? We were formally with Kodak, and our new camera came with finepix studio. Never happy with Kodak but really dislike finepix. I’d love to hear of fantastic options.
We’ve spent the past week researching solar options, solar electricity and hot water. We know far more about solar electricity than before, our children have created posters on solar energy. The problem is the length of our house, 22 metres from one end to another; one bathroom at one end, all other wet areas at the other end and the kitchen in the middle. Options and decisions.
Did you know?
Fact 1. After July next year electrical hot water systems will no longer be sold.
Fact 2. Electricity bills are set to rise by 15% next year! more after that.
After sharing last week that Bass was still in 00s, it is apparent that I really need to unpack his 0s this weekend. PC refuses to dress him in 00s any longer, citing cruelty, and I’m afraid I have to concede, it’s true, he is too long. Talking Bass, he is belly crawling everywhere! Too, too fast.
What an incredibly busy week we have just experienced. We’ve been to town nearly every day this week. Swimming lessons twice a week, not arriving home until 7.20pm. We attended Mass for both All Saints and again for All Souls, and had an impromptu visit with a friend:) Yet another day our town celebrated it’s annual festival. Of course our two oldest teens are busy coming and going with Tafe, karate twice a week and work. We were so grateful to just enjoy being at home today.
Recently I’ve had a surge of enthusiasm, clarity and energy. It has just occurred to me why, Bass is past the six month mark and this has always been my experience after six months post-partum, there is a new me:) This is when PC starts warning me that perhaps I’m might be taking too much on;)
Please keep Anna Maria in your prayers, tomorrow is a BIG day for her. She is undertaking a very special exam, I shall share the whole story soon.
