Work has been even busier this week, and the weather terrible. But we did have one shining day.

Not a lot to say what with staying at home by myself these days. Having Zoom and WebEx dinners with friends has been fun though. We’re even playing DnD through Hangouts. And I had therapy through a HIPAA approved version of Zoom.

I made bread, and then got much better bread in a drive-by drop off of flour for another friend.

My attempt at soda bread in the bread machine.
Properly baked wheat sandwich bread by Beth.

I may have also picked up WoW Classic again to entertain myself, even though I still have my regular work week. Just paid a single month, though.

I got refunded for the big convention I was planning on attending this weekend, so I may have also bought some fancy dice on sale and backed Kickstarters for two others.

I’ve been consuming visual media instead of reading like I said I would. This is all very exhausting, I’m working harder from home than I was in the office trying to move the library to a completely virtual space.

Be safe out there friends and family! Love to you all.

Do You Feel Older? July 29, 2010

That seems to be the question of the week. I have generally responded with: I’ve felt old since I was 17, I feel pretty good today. I had a wonderful birthday weekend with friends and chosen family. I didn’t see any of my blood family, but I did talk to both my parents and my brother. It was good to hear from them, too.

I ate a lot of wonderful food, both out at restaurants, and made specially for me. About half of it was healthy and good for me, about half of it was delicious anyway. 😉   My joints are getting back at me this week for it, though, so back to alkaline for me. Started the week with wheat grass juice, still tastes awful, but I’m getting better at drinking it. Inta Juice is a lovely shop and doesn’t charge nearly as much as Whole Foods used to (when they still had it).

For my birthday I got a couple books, some DVDs, some gaming dice and some clothes. Thanks go out to my parents and my in-laws for those. Knowledge, entertainment and clothing to go with the nourishment and fellowship. I also saw two movies, Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Inception. Next week, Cedar Point to top it off with a fun experiences.

Inception sent my mind whirling, partially about the topic of the movie, creating reality in dreams, but also into other types of reality creation. In parts of the movie the soundtrack/sound effects were quite blatant, and it made me think about creating with music. The moods and emotions that music invokes and the creativity it can inspire. I have always enjoyed fantasy stories where music is the medium of magic, because it is so meaningful to us and speaks to us in ways that words alone may not.

It also got me thinking about creating the reality I want to live in. Creating the life I want to have. Creating the online presence, websites, and business(es) I want to design. Mike’s getting advice for the Bookup.com website and one of the things that was said was he should fire his web designer. We both agreed with this advice and were glad that he didn’t hire me as his web designer. I don’t have the skills for that, we both know that, but they are skills I want to gain. At the moment I am more like his web programmer, he tells me what he wants and I make it happen. We both need advice and guidance in the design category. I am very grateful that this coach has some ideas in this area.

There are so many things I want to do, all spinning about my head. I want to learn WordPress, learn how to make custom Themes, create a website offering both these Themes and tips and tricks and advice for WordPress in general. I have a lot of WordPress references, books, websites, personal advice, that I would like to collect all in one place, for myself at the very least.

Next step, is a curiosity about Joomla. What it can do. What I can do with it. I have started gathering reference material, but I think WordPress first, it seems an easier thing to learn.

I also have writing projects, Traffic Ultimatum, Four Hour Work Week, affiliates, a gaming carry-all and getting out of Barnes & Noble running around in my head. Not to mention my simple weekly blogging, the growing stack of books I want to read, investing, and medical bills. Life is crazy, fun, wonderful, exciting and full of so many opportunities. I have My Next Thirty Years by Tim McGraw running through my head lately. They will definitely be the best years of my life.
