Finally!  I made some pancakes I could eat!  :-)

When I went shopping I decided to buy some boxed mix... a healthier brand, but still a boxed mix.  So, I remembered to make pancakes this morning and I am happy.  The mix worked, the pan worked, and I have three breakfasts in the freezer and one for tomorrow.  I am happy.  :-)

Letters from over the weekend were mailed this morning... and I FINISHED my September letter list today... now I can start on my October letters.  I received part of my michaels.com order today.  I hope the rest will arrive soon.

It seems the new way of shipping is to send out items individually... I suppose they are drop-shipping, but it is a pain.  I had a terrible time with Michael's Customer Service Chat Line when my confirmation email was messed up... I think it was over 90 minutes on chat, with three different people, and I won't go into the details but it wasn't fun.  I like Michael's, but I can't seem to get to the stores these days.  Online was something I was trying out.  I haven't decided if I want to try it again.

All I think, when I have these types of experiences, is how vulnerable a business is to the actions and attitudes of its employees.

Enough on that.

I was up late last night again, discovering some business sites and people and articles and audios.  I still have to read them in full.  I found some great graphics, and PDFs, and ideas.  I had to rest this afternoon because of it.  I feel so old when I have to nap.  :-)   I am old, but don't like feeling like I am old.  haha.

Doing all that exploring is something I need to limit to, maybe, ONE day a week or month!  I wish.  With the internet, you have to grab the link when you find it.  Printing is how I capture all these moments for later.  I wish more sites would make easily downloadable  PDFs of their articles... webpages are in flux, it seems... some of them print well, other not at all.

I love to discover new great things online... or better than the rest kind of things.  I found an artist in Uganda on the elephant group I belong to on Facebook... Nice, huge paintings of African life.  I would buy some of them in a minute, if I had the money.  So, now I am following him and waiting to see what else he does in the future.

I was checking on some Christian links last night, too.  I discovered a digital publishing site and was trying to find out more about it.    calameo.com    I am not fond of this kind of publishing, but I can see it is going to be part of the future, so I was trying to figure out how it works.  I have to say, I was in LOVE with the download as a PDF option on some of the publications.  The big problem I found was that there is little information about the site and how it works as a publishing vehicle... so you have to sign up to find out.  They have a free option, but still little details about what it will do for you... at least for those who are not technical and/or don't have any experience with the process.  I am trying to decide if I want to sign up and explore it further.  I probably will, but not sure when.

I like print.  Others like digital.  So.....I am trying to make purchase options for different types of customers.  I don't know if you have to upload a finished magazine or page, or if you create within the site.  I also don't understand their limitations on the free account yet.

It all takes so much T I M E to work through.

Well, I have decided to do some "art therapy" tonight.  :-)   I want to try art journaling with some little art paper books I have.  Tonight is the moment for that... let's see where this leads!  :-)

Until next time,
In Christ,
