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,
