Weekly Round-Up

This week I....

... am grateful my husband wasn't hurt, but not quite ready to be a one-car family.  (Too late on the last one!  Apparently that is enough damage to render the car "totaled," insurance-wise.)

... helped a dear friend put her dissertation on Kindle.  It took about three hours, which was much less time than I expected.  The dissertation was already formatted with page breaks and bookmarks in MS Word which sped up the process considerably.  But she decided to single-space ALL her block quotations instead of leaving them double-spaced as her advisor had insisted so she had to move through 200+ pages changing each one.

 The Magician designed the book cover which uses a close-up of one of my paintings as the background.
The process of getting it on Kindle was easier than expected, though.  There were a lot of decisions but we just dealt with them one by one.  Click here if you are interested in the fairy tales of George MacDonald, G. K. Chesterton, or C. S. Lewis.
... speaking of books, I just finished reading Paige by Paige: A Year of Trading Spaces.  Head over to the reviews page if you're curious.  (Under Lifestyles and Otherwise, the bottom-most catagory.)
... had my niece Arwen over to spend the night Friday.  We went to hear the Shoestring Band at the Gratitude Cafe, did some coloring, and she made a present which she wrapped all by her self for the first time.
