What? Yes! No? Maybe

According to plan, I got up this morning close to the 'usual' time for a weekday. This to accomplish many things:
- Pay a bill
- Working on some photos for a minor project
- Prepping an application for a weekend show
- Getting all the livestock fed before it got late
- Prepping for feed delivery today
- More work on photographic related subjects (not necessarily images)
- Hoover the House

This day did not happen according to plan.

Didn't get out of bed until near 07:00. Felt good. Made coffee, and got that bill paid. This is why I am able to communicate with you now. OK, so far, not bad.

Did work on the photos for the minor project, while drinking my morning coffee. Results pending.

Looked at the time. OMG, almost NOON. Out the door to do morning rounds, feeding critters.

Found Mr. Handsome Buck in with the doelings. Uh Oh. Fortunately, all the youngsters that are Smelling So Nice are nearly old enough we planned on turning them out -- in the Spring. So, a couple months early. Will watch.

Got everyone fed and the Feed Delivery arrived. Got that stowed. OK, so far, catching up.

Never did get the Hoovering done.

Filled out that application, and as we are doing an Arts/Crafts booth, event management want a web site URL. Um, don't (exactly) have a web site yet. Certainly not for the name put onto the application, Studio 318. So I started playing around with Google Sites to put together a quick and dirty. Made it part way through. After all, it's a photographic art website. Need photographic art. Now, there are a number of ways to do that with Google Sites (or so it appears). However...

I side-tracked into Picasa since I am looking at doing the images on this site as a flowing show, more or less. Also, been thinking about Picasa as a cataloging software package, haven't played with it yet. So I downloaded the most recent version, and installed it, and told it to import images on my computer. This includes a limited amount of images on the internal hard drive. And a much larger amount of images on a USB external hard drive. Started the import around 14:45 my time zone.

It is now 19:54.

Picasa is continuing to import images.

Why, particularly, am I, a photographer, surprised by this?

Ah well. Time for dinner.

Squrrl: We always need head scritching, Ms. Tassie.

Houdini: Say Hi to Philleus for us! Smudge would like that.

Squrrl: We hear from Boss that you are now a Very Important Person! We like knowing Very Important Persons.

Houdini: This LJ Interwebz place is getting hard to get into sometimes. Boss says we should maybe make another doorway. What do you think?

Squrrl: And, like, we are expecting a WHOLE BUNCH of new kids soon, and we need to go out and check on that now so we are going to nudge Boss to get moving.
