Today’s my birthday, so I’ll be offline most of the day. I’ve got Fun Stuff to do! 😉

Yesterday was busy — spent time on the workshop, got some great work done on the play, had to do some research for the play (why do I insist on writing about lost civilizations and lost languages all the time, and then I have to go find them?), and working on the landing page for the seminar.

Web Design is not my forte, and, of course, because I could design a pretty nifty page on iWeb, I couldn’t upload it to my host. So I deleted one of my sub-domains (which needs revamping anyway) and used the host’s site builder to create a simple landing page. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but all the info is there. It wasn’t too much of a gut-wrenching nightmare, actually. It even let me cut-and-paste (usually I have to hand-enter every keystroke). It didn’t let me do everything of course, and I’m not particularly quick, but it’s done, and now we can tweak it over the next few days and jazz it up a bit, and then promote it. I also started setting up the conference board, but then hit the point where I couldn’t think straight any more. I’ll have to go back to it tomorrow.

I even spent some time cleaning up the fallen branches in the front yard, and, lo and behold, as I hauled them to the back to pile ‘em up, I found crocuses valiantly peeking up and around the rose bushes on the side of the house.

But that’s a post for tomorrow’s Gratitude and Growth! 😉

The next assignment has come in from Confidential Job #1, and I will start tackling that this weekend.

I’m reading a biography of Kay Thompson — I didn’t realize she had a long career in radio and in Hollywood as a singer and musical arranger before she wrote the Eloise books! Very interesting to see how radio worked in the thirties, forties, fifties, etc.

Last night’s kundalini yoga kicked my ass, but it sure helped my hip! 😉 This morning’s session was pretty good, too.

Tomorrow, it’s back to commenting on student work, setting up the conference, and working on my deadlined material, but today is all mine!
