There has been much happening. Spring or something seems to be energising me and my interest in all sorts is perking up

  1. We bought that coffee table (and I love it)
  2. We also bought two second-hand leather armchairs that go very well with the table…
  3. …and then we bought a rug
  4. I completed the Recreational Maths course at Futurelearn…
  5. …and have started on Maths Puzzles
  6. …and bought an online Photography course at Udemy
  7. The camera arrived and is in use and I am currently concentrating on manual settings as required by the Udemy course.
  8. My laptop wasn’t up to processing images from my new camera, so a new PC is being built today
  9. Just for good measure we threw in a network server and a new WiFi router – Maison Celle meets the 21st Century!
  10. But my Lightroom won’t handle the raw files from the new camera, so I probably have to take out a Creative Cloud subscription
  11. The diet is going well and I met a major interim goal
  12. The Keto thing is causing me much enjoyment in trying out new dishes and methods in the kitchen
  13. I made cauliflower “rice” today. It is actually very nice!
  14. I also made crispbreads this week – not something that I ever thought of trying
  15. I am trying to get all Blogs up, running and lively again – including my Photo site, Runestone.
  16. Still not found time to knit or spin or read or do any of the myriad things that I should like to.

House stuff is here

Photo stuff is here

I will do a diet post soon.

I am trying to work out how to keep things relevant, with all the right stuff in the right places but it is making my head ache a bit! I need a better sense of direction and narrower focus in each place, I think. I don’t seem to be good at compartmentalising.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
