My goal is to spend six hours this weekend working on creating a video or two for the OneRecovery site. I’m still in the learning stage of it but after four hours today I did get a 90 second one made. Which is good. A minute and a half is a good length. Most of the time was spent trying to figure out what I wanted to say and what pictures I wanted to use and editing them. I did it at least fifteen times before I felt it made sense. Then when I thought it was good to go, I found out I hadn’t noticed a whole segment of the process. That meant I had to scrap everything I had done and start over. Such is life on the learning curve.
I also went to the library and got five books. It is wonderful to be able to read all I want to. I feel very rich to be able to go to the library. I got two mystery stories and three books for young adults. I love reading children’s books – maybe someday I will write one or two. For now I just enjoy reading them. I am working my way through reading all the Newberry Award winners. I got the book “Holes” by Louis Sachar. I have watched the movie several times but never had the chance to read the book. It was great. I spent most of the day alternating between working and reading. Oh and playing a few too many games of solitaire.
Did take Pudge to the park for a bit. It seems like overnight it has turned to Fall. Buddy has decided it is not so wonderful to spend the night out when it’s cold. Smart cat. In fact he has hardly gone out much at all. Which is a good thing because when I am gone for a few days he will be in the house.
Well now, I am going to go back to reading. Such a life. I don’t suppose there are books in heaven but I think they are a bit of heaven for now.
