Well that's Interesting.

Today Flickr came out with a few new photo sharing options and of course I just had to try it.

I can now share photo sets in addition to just sharing one photo. I think it is pretty neat. It looks like a normal mosaic, yet you can click on each thumbnail image and Whoosh! Off you go to the actual photo. Go on....try it!

These photos are considered to be the 24 most Interesting photos I have uploaded to Flickr. Well at least as of today. It is always changing.

If you want to see more of my Interesting photos, click on the Interestingness link. Just a warning may want to prepare yourself as you may encounter lots and lots of fluffy furry kitty photos.

Not so easy on the eyes

After all the courses I have taken so far towards my certification, I thought I would just breeze right through this current online course of mine. The subject matter should be familiar and when I printed out the syllabus the lessons appeared to be quite short (only 4-5 pages of instruction per lesson) when compared to my previous courses. I figured I wouldn't have a problem with working all day then spending and hour each night to work on my lessons. That is until I got to lesson 3.

Lesson 3 says...

Again, although you have already taken a course in anatomy as a prerequisite for this course, Book Four is an anatomy workbook and the material is specific to information commonly encountered. Please read sections C-N. Follow your reading by doing the exercises in the book.

So guess what section I am currently on...That would be section E. It took me days to get through reading the first two sections. That's right, Days! As in more than one. There are over 420 pages to read for this lesson. Four hundred and twenty!!!

It wouldn't be so bad if I was reading from an actual book that I could take and read anywhere, but the information I need to access is only available in online form.

After a full day of sitting in front of the computer screen, my eyes hurt. I go to bed with eyes so red they look as though I spent the evening at the bar instead of being the goody two shoes that I am.

Only 10 more letters (sections) to go. Hopefully the next time you hear from me I will be further along in the alphabet.

It's time to buckle down

The book I need for my next course has finally arrived.

And with only 8-weeks left in which to complete a 15-week course, I guess I had better get busy....

I've been away

It's been about a week since I have been online or even turned on the computer. I have to say I have quite enjoyed my time away. But I knew it couldn't last. I figured it probably was time for me to check my email, start my next online course and basically see what all I have been missing.

As for around here...

Spring has arrived. Well at least in our front yard. The tree we bought last year started to grow leaves and as of today is surprisingly quite full with tons of tiny leaves. The leaves are a very bright green and so far it is the only tree on our street with new leaves. I think the surprise hard freeze we had in February is to blame. Lots of plants didn't make it.

And for even more excitement....

It's here! Our painting has arrived!

It looks so much better in person. I no longer wonder if I made the right choice. I have to say I really love looking at it. The colors are so amazing and it makes me smile every time I catch a glimpse of it. I had been waiting until I found a painting before deciding on any decorations for our home. Now that the decision has been made I look forward to painting the walls and adding a few accessories here and there.

Even more ripples

In honor of National Crochet Month, you get even more ripple goodness.

more {ripples}

even more {ripples}

I am still not sold on the colors, but they do look a bit better as the blanket grows larger.
