So I’m waiting for blogshares to come out of beta and go live. waiting. waiting. waiting. I have much I should be doing. Yes I do. And yet, I am drawn to rebuilding my virtual portfolio with the proceeds, all $12,000 dollars of it, from the two weeks I played the beta.
Now, you would think I’d just dig in and do my things that need doing and then feel great about playing guilt-free. Instead I am sitting here dreaming of the big stocks I’ll snap up in my first five transactions and then my next 10. and thinking how if I could only roll my virtual blogshares into my iTunes Music Store account…. how sweet that would be.
waiting. waiting. waiting.
I’ll confess I was a skeptic about this whole Apple-downloading-music thing. But there was Steve Jobs up there on the big screen today, talking about iPods and iTunes and how ripping off music is all about bad karma. And of course, moments later we had iTunes 4 up and running and were listening to all the 30 second clips of music and stuff.
When you get four people standing in close proximity searching for and playing 30 second bits of music all at once, the results are rather interesting. Some would say, ecclectic even!
So I came home and updated my own 5G iPod and updated my iTunes and voila, I’m searching out my own ecclectic range of music. And what did I download (you knew I would, Steve…)?
- Let the River Run — Carly Simon
- That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be — Carly Simon
- Sweet Surrender — John Denver
- Lumberjack Song — Monty Python
Hmmmm Guess I shouldn’t have poked fun at Ron for downloading Phil Collins, eh?
Nice Sunday. Mom and I went to the Delmar quilt show. Walked around looking at quilts, and then we did the vendors (of course we did). I fell in love with a little quilt by Jo Diggs. Simply beautiful.
Came home via the grocery store. I made meatballs and a whole lotta sauce (known as red stuff around here) and baked not only the meatballs but a lot of that yummy chicken italian sausage I’d gotten. That was easy. Much easier than frying. Ron and I had the last of the lasagna tonight.
Then we did a quick photo session to get slides of the new quilt as well as the little Journal quilts. Didn’t take long – amazing what the right equipment will get ya besides good slides!
Yesterday I spent the whole day making and sewing on bindings. Whatta deal! I’m actually getting pretty good at sewing on bindings completely by machine.
The Force of Spring
||This is what has been happening in my sewing room the past couple nights.
Quilting this week took a little detour to a little quilt that wasn’t even thought of last week. Hey, that’s what happens sometimes. Stay tuned for a photo. Interesting how that happens.
Sometimes working fast (as in – oh, look how quickly the deadline for that is rushing up!) isn’t a good thing. There’s a fine line balance between getting into the zone because there’s a time limit and not having a lot of time to think things out. Sometimes everything works out great, sometimes you have second thoughts but it’s too late. But, I guess if you don’t try, you don’t try. In the long run, it pays to get the idea sooner rather than later, if only so that it’s been sitting developing in your head rather than being made up as you do it. At least that’s my experience.
