This is the current circle of subscribers to my Coffee Lovers Circle here on G+, who are kind enough to let me push notifications to them each morning when I post a #Coffee  related pic with some motivation quotes each day. Thanks for all the +1's and interaction, even when work takes me away from the computer quickly in the morning.Please add these super cool people to your circles and reshare this post with others.Whenever I reach my maximum (i.e. "You cannot send email to that many people") then I start trimming out the inactive ones. If you would like to be added to this circle or want to continue to receive my morning silliness, follow the instructions below.

Sean Cowen43,829My Morning Circle: By Far, The Most Interesting and Unusual Circle I've Ever Created...In the beginning of October, I asked people to dig down deep and give me names of great people to add to a must-read morning circle. ( http://bit.ly/16ow9Cm ) This is the FIRST CIRCLE of those names. I have omitted a few names by my own prerogative and I've left off PAGE names as I'd like to create a separate circle for those. By and large, though, this list is the result of all the recommendations I received. There are more names to follow, as I'm still working down through the comments...What I Originally Asked of Anyone Leaving Comments and Recommendations...I'm looking for a SINGLE CIRCLE of pure awesomeness - a circle that gives me incredible content, insight, analysis, humor, a dose of the erudite, funny, sad, melancholy, happy - in short - I'm looking for one circle to throw into my stream that gets my days started off on the right foot.But I need your input. Who should I add to this circle?We all know the usual suspects (and some of those people will definitely be included if you recommend them), but I am seeking and searching for those little mentioned and possibly unknown to me people who will jump start my day.I'm not looking for popularity or anything specific - just let me know about the people you would include if you were creating this same circle. #circle   #coolcircle   #recommendedcircle   #circleoftheday  P.S. Added myself against my better judgement as I was chosen on this list as well. Now you know... :-)2013-10-20 15:53:26499613067CC G+

Jason Ramsey12,748Newest version of the "Active Engagers" circle. If you're looking for new people to circle that will interact with you this is what you want. The people in the circle are active and have engaged with me during the past two weeks at some point.I'll be sharing a new version of this same circle twice a month, so be on the lookout for the next one.If you're in this circle, please re-share it. Hopefully we can improve our reach to new users that we haven't connected with yet. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles   #publicsharedcircles   #active   #Engagement  2013-09-06 23:25:40432786659CC G+

Jason Ramsey10,304#circles  I've been so busy sharing other peoples circles I haven't done one of my own in a while, so here it is.This is a #circle  that is made up of the most active people on my profile so far this month. It also includes a new page I've started devoted to music that bears the same name of a website I run, #TotalClassicRock . If you're into music, please join my Rock On Communtiy:  https://plus.google.com/communities/105751692971789931821I didn't want the circle to be to big so I stopped at 180. Hopefully this will allow most people to 'add' the circle as well as share it, and most if not all of these people will 'add' you back.+Christine DeGraff is still my G+ inspiration, no one works harder at it than she does, so please add her. If you want to grow your circles you need to join her community as well: #CircleMaster       #CircleQueen   https://plus.google.com/communities/110536893180065728400Please share, add, and plus.

Mastering Circles9,473#CircleMaster   #Circle  No. 6PLEASE READ: I'm making a few changes to encourage those who are NOT in circles to start sharing and to encourage those IN circles to participate more on my page and not feel so much pressure to share.1) If you are IN the circle, please share it.2) If you are NOT IN the circle, but I have you circled and you were already shared in other circles this week, please remember that not everyone will be added to every single circle because that would be like sharing the same circle everyday. To be included a little more often, please help me increase engagement on my page by plussing and commenting on more of the things I share here more often.3) If you are NOT IN the circle, but I have you circled and you have NOT YET been shared in one of my circles, please make sure you have me circled and that you are participating on this page by plussing, commenting and occasionally sharing. Also make sure you have a profile photo. If you do all of that, you will soon be in a circle.4) If you are NOT IN the circle and have me circled, but I do NOT have you circled, the ONLY WAY you will get into my circles is to share my circles and engage on my page by plussing and commenting. I am only adding new people who share and participate. I would suggest a good way to start would be by sharing this circle!!!I hope you all enjoyed the little circle sharing break yesterday :D#sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #circleshare   #circle   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday  2013-08-08 02:17:2650189102112CC G+

Jake Kern24,894The Silver DonutBeen wanting to do a circle share for a while, but I just haven't wanted to put in the work to get a group of 100 for another #GoldenDonut. Instead, I grabbed the top 500 from my Google relevancy algorithm. Then I removed a couple people who don't like being in circle shares & some pages so I could stretch the 500 a bit. (For instance, both +Melissa Bagley & +Melissa Ann Bagley Photography would be in the circle--in the top 25, actually--but I just included Melissa's personal profile even though you should circle both.)Many amazing people in here. Thank you for making this corner of the Internet worthwhile.Peace. #SilverDonut  2013-07-13 22:19:3849915225136CC G+
Danial Hallock7,489Collaborative CircleMy circle management strategy has always been a little structured and the people in it have always been excessively vetted before I'd be willing do endorse them.By now, most of you have probably heard of my circle "The Three Hundred" (http://goo.gl/kqE8h  :: 251 +1s and 48 reshares) where I vetted people through a series of iterative 'tests' to make sure that they were worth circling and, more importantly, worth endorsing and sharing with the world.Well, I also wanted to create a circle of everyone that those people thought were amazing.  So, I've been going through each of the Three Hundred, and circling up the people that they endorse and share in their circles.  The people that reoccur get added to this circle.For example, if Fred Flintstone shows up in +Sarah Rios, +Kate Savage, +Dede Craig King, and +Bobbi Jo Woods's circles; then he gets added to this circle, because he's obviously awesome.The idea is that everyone has some circle containing people in which they place a lot of faith; everyone has their "League of Extraordinary Circle Friends" (+Mike Elgan).  This circle is the first attempt to combine those circles into one super-project; and it's only the first pass (100/300 profiles scanned).So stay tuned, share, plus-one, and check out my other circle (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).#circleshare   #collaborativecircle   #sharingiscaring(Link to post: http://goo.gl/Ex9ai)2013-06-27 10:48:232111291385CC G+

Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629CC G+
Fredrik Ax1,259The, according  to Google, 300, for me, most relevant persons in my circlesSome time ago +Erik Andersson shared his 492 most relevant people[1] which was an idea I found fun, so I'm doing the same with my 300 most relevant. But I had some trouble compiling this circle, it seems that I can only add or move 200 people around my circles per day. I wonder if Google changed that or if the number is dependent on how many you already have in your circles. Anyway, having 300 in this circle may be stupid then, because if the number is 200 some people who not already have a lot of the profiles in my this circle in theirs, will not be able to add it.Anyway, it's interesting to try to figure how Google comes up with this order of people. I agree that the top ones (when I'm viewing the circle) are absolutely relevant for me, but scrolling down I would peronally have a totally different order of people, and some that did not even make it among the top 300 I would place very high up.-- [1] https://plus.google.com/113538385219043438319/posts/WV3Uszpg9E92013-05-04 14:36:0130044035CC G+

Erik Andersson4,111Dags för ny delning av min ankdammen-cirkel#ankdammen cirkeln lever fortfarande kvar även om det numer även finns en ankdammen-grupp. Många gillar att man själv kan välja vem som kan bestämma vem som är mottagare av ens poster och att man själv kan välja vems poster man vill läsa och i vilken cirkel man lägger dem. Detta går ju med cirkeln, men inte med gruppen.I ankdammen är det högt i tak och vi blandar humor, allvar och trams i en salig röra.  Alla har sin egen ankdamm, men jag som initiativtagare till detta har som tradition att dela med mig av cirkeln med jämna mellanrum. Ett kul sätt för dem som är med i min ankdamm att få lite nya följare och ett enkelt sätt för de som redan är med att få lite nya. Sen är det ju även folk som inte är med i ankdammen som använder cirkeln för att hitta bra folk.Säg till om det låter intressant och du vill vara med.Ni som varit med sedan tidigare, kolla gärna så att ni inte fallit ur då det har spökats lite bland mina cirklar.Trevlig helg!#ankdammen  #deladcirkel  #svenskacirklar  Kör med notifiering även denna gång eftersom den inte syns i flödet i mobilen annars.2013-05-03 12:41:4818335228CC G+

Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019914101CC G+

Because they are active! ;)We had a very good discussion with +Richard Hoefer and +Bearman Cartoons here: https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/AMbHGT3Qu1m and one idea was to feature a special group of people and not only the most followed or most engaging ones.I think this circle is not really what +Richard Hoefer meant, but it goes hopefully in the right direction ;)We like such unusual shared circles, since these people didn't act because we have offered to share them in a circle afterwards. They just did/voted/reviewed! ;)A year ago we have already shared a circle like this with the people who have written a review for our Chrome Extension:https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/6WCpwBTQxKj2013-04-19 10:25:26165772973CC G+

See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo  but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)2013-03-15 15:05:14291532075CC G+

The short of it if that it's an international day of celebrating political, social and economic achievements of women, whether it be in the past, present or future.Today, we remember all those important female women who fought for rights, scientists and successful women... But really it's not just there we can stop.. We can remember all those women that have come before... the important ones that we don't necessarily have any more...

The Bearded Guy is finishing up a trip to Berlin, scouting locations. All by himself.

Yup, he's on a trip that takes him more than an hour away, living his preferred hostel life, meeting up with old friends and scouting around the city for business locations.
Today is day 7 of a 9-day trip.

He's being left to himself for mealtimes, daily schedule, medications... and so far, things seem to be going quite well. 
Aside from a small glitch last night, where it appears he has now lost his iPhone (that's going to be an annoyance to replace, but not the end of the world), he's been able to do a little work and still have a bit of energy for exploration and take care of himself while he's at it.

This is NOT vacation - this is work. 

I'm so pleased he's doing this. It's a little rough to be here and in a state of worry everyd... more »

The Life of an Intern in my Office.

She is working on line item coding for the financials - but one of our animals thinks she is HIS minion.

2014-04-16 06:15:31 (3 comments, 0 reshares, 13 +1s)

Goodmorneve and coffee greetings, Giggleplus!

I have been busy with training my intern. And life is good.

One of the requirements of having an intern is a 36-hour work week. She can spend some of those hours in seminars and meetings with her Job Coach, looking for other work, other education, etc., but it's up to me to find something that uses up this 36-hour work week.

As a freelancer, one thing we noticed was that we really only work for 6 hours a day. And frankly, I had that discussion with my Dad about 20 years ago - between breaks and lunch, chatter time and wasted time, an 8 or even 9 hour day at an office only gives about six hours of actual work.
So it wasn't a surprise to me.
However, the requirements are for 36 hours. So, I have started the "lecture time". An hour of each day covers instruction on becoming a freelancer and what is... more »

Three thirty in the afternoon - in the middle of a paid work project, in the middle of wracking my brain over how to do part of this intern teaching, in the middle of housework, in the middle of unpaid projects... just in the middle today.

On the bright - or at least shady side - Intern officially begins at 10 tomorrow morning. Yay!

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
Time to finish... something. Anything!

2014-04-08 15:58:42 (4 comments, 0 reshares, 7 +1s)

Yay! And Yay again!

Have received word that the internship is cleared, pending signatures on paperwork which will happen on Wednesday.

Now - what am I allowed to ask my intern to do and what is forbidden?

Summer intern? 
It might actually happen!

Goodmorneve and coffee greetings, Giggleplus!

I've been to our local job bank - in Sweden it's called Arbetsfömedlingen - along with our favorite local art student. I want to give her a summer internship.

I want to use her education skills in several ways.
And I'll teach her what I know about the paperwork side of a business.

We already know of a couple of sticking points. As freelancers, we generally put in a 6-hour work day. Well they want it to be an 8-hour day. Sure, we have the 8-hour day from time to time, but it's not normal for us.
That's 10 hours a week we have to fill somehow. It's possible they will allow some of her Job Coach requirements to be filled that way... as in, they will want her to continue looking for other work, attend Job Coach meetings, that kind oft... more »

Goodmorneve and yes, I am having coffee at 11 p.m. at night, Giggleplus!

Busy all the time - and finally got in a package from China I'd been waiting for.

So now that I have some new nail art supplies, why aren't I posting any new photos? Well, it's like this....

I also got a remote control for my camera. And we had a few days of opening packages of items that have come for the Pocket Viking. Then I broke two nails and I'm trying to get a grip on work and and and and .... Yeah, excuses. Lots of them.

For now, my nails are chopped short, the camera and equipment are in the closet and the nail art is all put away. We're having company tomorrow night and again on the weekend.

I don't want to have my artwork or camera out and in the way of guests. And there's still so much to do in the way of paperwork (because it's TAX TIME,... more »

I am trying to convince the Bearded Guy to go outside for me. Never mind that the store is right across the way. Never mind that it's nail polish remover I need to go get. The point of this is to not get out of my couch fortress just yet.

So far, it's not working.
<giggle>

Some things, you simply just must do.

This may be one of them.

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
I'm missing a few people's posts around here... how much time do you spend searching through the names to find out if someone is still here, still online?

2014-03-11 13:13:36 (7 comments, 0 reshares, 5 +1s)

Too awake for sleep, too tired to do anything constructive.

There really was more I wanted to get done while the Bearded Guy is away until later today, but it's nice to just sit here.

When so much is running through your head, how do you sort out the important stuff? There's trivia flying around in my head, music that won't come out, a story to be told, stuff to be done around the apartment, family to worry over and bills to be paid. So why am I simply unable to start on anything? 

Oh, I know - 

Goodmorneve and will somebody please refill this coffee?.
Hiyas, Giggleplus

Yeah, it's that kind of a day.

I need my Giggleplus scientists on this one:

If you do not bite the ice, then would you describe this as having eaten ice or having drank the ice?

My daughter asked it as a grammar question, but I think it's a science question.

Goodmorneve, and evidently I need more coffee for this one!

Hey. What happened to my cover photo? And I can't change it right now.

Aw, phooey. Guess I'll have to wait and put it back later.

So what's the update that caused this?

2014-03-07 13:24:12 (3 comments, 0 reshares, 7 +1s)

Ah, paperwork, you really are not my friend.

You are, however, my requirement ... so we will do battle today. Have already started it.

My to-do-list is quite short.

1. Do the books.

It's the financials, the paperwork, the taxes side of being in business. The coding of each receipt and invoice, the entering into the software, the printing out of each month's report, the double-checking that nothing is odd or weird, the going back and doing it all over again after finding something odd.

Yes, I could use a class in accounting.

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
Not enough coffee to make me want to handle this side of business.

And there's something about the free online classes in accounting that just don't quite cut it for me. I'm not a beginner, but I'm not advanced... need to start in the middle somewhere.... more »

Still too early, even though it's after noon. Must leave my four walls and find the stores....

I don't want to go out yet.

Okay, whining over.

Grateful to have the cash in my wallet to do what needs to be done. Grateful the coffee held out for the morning. But it's time to get more!

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus! A quiet-ish day today, but I do have to take a short walk out and do a little shopping. And today I really must face the paperwork. Really.

2014-03-05 10:47:06 (10 comments, 0 reshares, 10 +1s)

I had this idea last night - that going to bed before midnight would be a good idea.
It was a fabulous plan until 4 this morning, when I woke up.

Now that it's nearly noon, I'm exhausted and ready to go back to the bed.
What's keeping me? I have paperwork that can continue to be ignored.
I have dishes that can wait.
The washing machine? The Bearded Guy can put clothes into the dryer.

When even the coffee isn't helping, it's time to sleep some more.

Goodmorneve and back to bed, Giggleplus!
Since my nose is runny, maybe I'm coming down with a cold?
Sleeeeeeeeeep!

2014-03-03 13:51:26 (7 comments, 0 reshares, 10 +1s)

While I wait to hear if there is more paid work for me to do, there is definitely time to do other things.

1. Get a valid estimate of travel costs and get a trip planned to meet the newest grandchild.
2. Get the books finished - it's not paid work, but it's definitely a part of having paid work.
3. Script!

Yes, we did indeed start scriptwriting. Taken from the Bearded Guy's story, I am embellishing where I wish to for the scenes and the dialogue. And since I am insisting on the script not using flashbacks, he can avoid worrying about such things. This will end up being a compilation of several people - one of the guys who runs the local gaming store is definitely involved in the story-writing and so his input will be required for the script. Besides, he does local theater and I value his input on the script for that alone.

Just signed the... more »

Not so long ago, I was contacted by a client who asked me (rather than the Bearded Guy) to do a show treatment translation.- script format.
Because this was our 4th script format, I decided it was time to purchase two versions of script software - the top two being used in scriptwriting here - to make it easier and cheaper for the clients to send me their files and I won't have to retype for formatting.

Doing that last project, I realized that I truly enjoy script translation. The scenes, the settings, the dialogue, the character descriptions... I thrive on this.
And with my reading of Swedish getting so much better, the Bearded Guy really only changed about 5% of what I had done, instead of the 30-40% of just a year ago.

So now that the Bearded Guy is writing a new story, my mind is going to the script. Can we write the script for it as he writes the story? If so,... more »

Sent the Bearded Guy into Stockholm for a meeting and asked him to stop by The English Shop. Easter is coming up and I wanted some Cadbury creme eggs. The bag with the eggs got left behind and he picked them up the following day, but this group of candy has already been started.

This American likes her candy from all over the world!

The Bearded Guy has some friends over here today. The hardest part of sitting in on a Swedish conversation that I truly cannot follow - 
I hear my name, so I think there's something being said TO me, then realize it's being said ABOUT me.

I had really hoped that 10 years would have been enough to be able to follow a conversation in Swedish.
But it appears I still understand spoken German better than spoken Swedish.

Maybe we should just move to Berlin now and speak Swedish at home when we get there....

Oy veh, the annoyance!

On the bright side - the Bearded Guy is well enough to have more than one visitor at a time. And he's holding his own in the conversation, as well.
This is actually a pretty big deal to me. Just a month ago, three friends in the house would have set him into exhaustion within half an hour.

Goodmorneve and Coffee greetings, Giggleplus!

My silver lining from yesterday's sad-face was the Bearded Guy making dinner and dessert plus a bubble bath.
Quite a nice 8 hours of sleep. Easy wake-up. Hot coffee in my mug.

Let's try this again. New day!
And, it appears the EOS Utility for my camera may have updated. If this is truth, then photos can return easily. So after I am finished with the important parts of the morning, I may unpack the camera and set up a photo corner. 
So hoping I can get enough done of actual required stuff that there will be time to play a little.

So should I just consider that I had a long weekend and this is a new week starting today? Sounds like a plan to me!

How often do you re-set the calendar/clock/timescheduling to fit your current mood?
(I do it often)

2014-02-18 14:12:06 (5 comments, 0 reshares, 5 +1s)

Can't do anything right.
Sent packages - to the wrong address. Not just one, several.
Got the dishes done - and promptly made a huge mess of the kitchen.
Did some number-crunching - and made far too many errors there.
Looked at trips and got all excited - then realized the number-crunching problem means I can't go anywhere right now.

Piffle on it.

When this day is done, I'm going back to bed and starting over in the morning. If I didn't really look forward to a bubble bath this evening, I'd give it all up and go back to bed right now.

This day has just been wrong, almost from the start. 

So - how do I get past that and begin again as of right this minute?

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!

When there are 5000 miles and 6 time zones between me and the rest of the family, a Hangout is the right place to meet the newest grandchild.

Being held by grandchild #2, grandchild #5 has reddish hair and still very dark eyes. But wide open... at least for a few minutes....

I thought the shot would be larger ... taken during a hangout and it shows larger in another spot... hmm.

Just before 4 p.m. on the 13th, I turned in the last of a huge workload. 

And no, I haven't actually looked to any of my clients for more work as yet.

I'm going to take a weekend - a long weekend - OFF.
Expecting the Pocket Viking and his Lovely Mommy and Best-Ever Big Sister for a visit. I'll sit down with these sad fingernails and paint them. Already working on the dishes. Oh yeah - I paid the bills too, so now there's more paper to be dealt with.

But see, this is all good.

It kind of makes up a little bit for the insanity of the past week or so. Scrambling to get a few things done on this end, contact with family in the US to get shopping done and photos of the new baby, etc. (Oh, there's another set of stories behind all that!) And now waiting to hear how they all are handling this round of snow. The loss of a G+ star, an odd... more »

#fuckcancer

It's not enough that my dearest friend in Sweden fights this. It's not enough that so many are already in this battle.
But another one was taken.

A G+ star for me, +Carina Liljestam, who fought this with a smile on her face. She would post shots of new outfits she created. And playing with makeup. And she was always willing to speak in my version of broken Swenglish. Even on days when the battle was difficult, she would post something funny or touching.
Yes, Carina, you touched me. From miles away, only via computer, but your words and photos were fun.
Congratulations on your recent wedding... and now all I can do is try to share in the sorrow your family faces.

Rest in peace, dear one. You held a smile in the worst of times.

It's all your fault, G+.

I've been up for three hours and am still on my first cup of coffee. How did this happen?
Reading G+.
Working through writing a recipe in Swedish.
Dropping a comment here and there, lots of plus-ones, more reading.

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
Noon-ish on a Sunday, gotta get more coffee into me so I can do a little work.

And hey - thanks!
It's been a well-spent quiet three hours.  :)

Little things that get under my skin:
The bathroom drain clogs and I can't quite reach it with gloved hands, requiring a note to the Landlord - who generally are superfast about such things, but this time took 36 hours to get here.
The plus side: It's clear now.

When the landlord sends the super to clear the drain, I'm still asleep in the bed. 
The plus side: The super and his helpers are respectful, clean up when they are done and lock the door behind them!

Not being certain of tax law regarding VAT/MOMs payment for Sweden, which means I could be making a huge mess for myself over something very small. And that they don't answer the phone in the middle of the night - when my brain is actually at work on the problem.
The plus side: I can usually get an English speaker on the phone to walk me through the process, if I can be awake to call during... more »

One project done, one project still in the works.

I had to take a day and not do much of anything. There were too many parts to take care of on the paid work, then I find out there is now grandchild number 5! I spent almost a full day doing online shopping to be shipped to the new mommy.

So much for taking a bite out of credit card debt. 
Ha!

Nah, it's good. I just have to make some serious payments in March.

As I read through my circle-ites here, it seems so many are facing such horrific times. Be it health, money, family, resolutions, work or even school, I see so many who need some peace.

For all of you facing things - I wish you peace.
I am not always able to buy a product or drop a few dollars into an account, nor am I the right person for advice in general - but know that you are being thought of.

With so much work on our plates, getting it all done on time can be interesting.

What makes me happy and calm about it all?
The housekeeper is here.

Yes, it's a luxury to have a woman come over once every two weeks and spend an hour and a half in my apartment scrubbing the areas I would rather not do.
Yes, it's an expense that should be the first to go when working on a budget that should be including more savings. And yes, I am considering all the income and expenditures.

But there is also a cost to my sanity. And with the recent changes around here, having her here meant I did not have that to worry over - allowing my energy to be focused where it was needed.
So yes, I am calm. Even in the stress of Monday. Even in the stress of work. Even in the (now minor!) stress of caring for the Bearded Guy.

Coffee greetings and a goodmorneve to everyone, Giggleplus!

A month ago, I sat down and wrote for a moment. Then I had a few minutes a few times a week to read a bit.

I've missed so much.
Mostly - all of you!

I have been shopping and bought nail polish. More script and video work has come my way... the paid kind!
 Paperwork and housework, as usual.
And, I've been keeping a spreadsheet of medications, sugar numbers, blood pressure, food and exercise for the Bearded Guy. 
Note on the Bearded Guy - he is nearly completely recovered from the stroke! Back to work a couple of hours each day, rehab is over and he can return to the gym twice a week. Very happy about this!

For now, more coffee. When the work is done for the day, I might have a few minutes to come back and read some more.

It's so nice to see the streama... more »

Without saying "resolutions", there are indeed many changes ahead for us this year.

For those of you considering quitting smoking: at our house, it seems smoking was indeed a major factor in the Bearded Guy's stroke. He has quit. I have not.

For those of you considering diets, at our house, the food changes have wreaked havoc with me. But they seem to be doing wonders for him. I don't have issues with sugars or salts - but some people do and he is one of them. Less sugar at my house. Ouch.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are not always easy to come by - or cheap if you can get them off-season. But as my Mom says: Pay for the food now and be healthy or pay for the doctor later, because you'll be sick.
She was right. It's that simple.

Activity is not easy for me. With the extra weight I still carry (and with these food changes... more »

The moment I think there are five minutes that are mine, I realize there is something else needing my attention.

I have emails and comments to catch up on. General housework is not falling behind yet, but it sure does holler at me when I think it's time for bed!

Such a busy time of year normally, it's been a different busy lately.

The world keeps spinning and my body clock needs adjusting!

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
It's early hours and I had thought I was going to bed... but something else called my name again.
What stops you from bedtime?

I'm still here, G+ - just excessively busy and barely time to open the computer for fun.

I miss you all!

My fingers are icicles.

The hot flashes take care of my waist to my head, but they do nothing for warming up my fingers.
Spending most of the day putting on and taking off a sweater is annoying. Tempted to put the heating pad back in the bed for my toes, too.
But my fingers... May have to find those special tablet gloves so that I can still use my phone, tablet and computer. The icicles are just a bit too much!

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
How do you keep your fingers warm?

We figured it out. I need a pre-trained personal assistant.

I don't need someone to make my schedule for the day. I need someone to help me when I need it and just sit here and maybe talk a little during the day.

The helping would involve things like holding a paper bag open while I put all the excess advertising in it so the whole bag can be taken to the paper recycling.
Ditto for the glass.

Assisting while I sort clothing - not to make the choices for me, but to confine my choices to their proper locations. Trash to the trash, giveaway to the bag going to Red Cross, possible sale items to the box that holds stuff for yard-sale-type market days.
Ditto for the kitchen stuff.

Helping me build the holder for my tablet which will be used to take PDF photos of all the previous year paperwork that has to be kept (by law) for 7 years for the... more »

If you have nothing nice to say, do not speak at all.

Well ... it's daytime (the sun is hiding).
I have coffee (we're almost out).
Sleep has been good (though spending nearly the whole of a week in the bed was a bit difficult).

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
As many things as are just wrong about today, I must hold on to the fact that I've had sleep, there's coffee in my mug and it's daytime when I'm getting up instead of weird hours. Welcome, Monday, let's start this week with a shower and a little cleaning, shall we?

The weather is changing. Wind and cold come my way.

In an attempt to improve my mood, there is half a plan that involves leaving my couch fortress for the outdoors.

But what will happen to the camera? How sensitive are DSLRs to cold and wind? I've watched photographers take their cameras outdoors in all sorts of odd weather, but is it silly of me to want to protect it more than that?
My cellphone is, and my previous digital snapshot cameras were, very sensitive to the cold and would respond sluggishly if at all. This is the best camera I have ever owned and I'd hate to hurt it on purpose.

Canon EOS 1100D

A beginner piece of equipment - because I felt that starting from scratch was a good idea. Still, not cheap and I just can't figure out how delicate it might be. 

Research is not helping this morning. Perhaps because it's too... more »

A later start to my day again.

Woke up yesterday with an odd pain and could not stand properly or put weight on my right foot. Very weird. Figured out (with a little poking and prodding) that the pain is under the pad for the big toe only. Flexing and curling was painful.

Heat has helped a lot. But it's still not quite right yet today.

I have probably done it to myself. I tend to sit with my feet tucked under me, and with the angles I can choose, it's possible the foot got turned and I have pinched a nerve. So a few days of sitting with feet flat on the floor will either fix this or I will have to call the doc.

Otherwise, it's a good thing, a good day - even with a late start, a pained foot and a need to go out for more coffee, it's a good day.
Look out, world, I'm out of bed and there is enough coffee for me to get started!... more »

If the money doesn't have to be in the bank until Thursday and it's raining today, can I take care of that tomorrow, please?

As of this moment, I'd really just like to get back in my bed.

I'm tired. Been up all night again. At least I've had a chance to chatter with kids. That alone does help. But the sleepiness is coming on strong. And I know that if I don't stay up just 2 and a half more hours until the bank opens, I won't be awake before it closes this afternoon. But there's nothing else keeping me awake this morning. 

Even the coffee is just warming up my insides. I'm not really here....

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
Is it valid to put things off one more day knowing that you might face the same difficulty again tomorrow?

Testing a new stamper over metallic gradient. A bit of fun for a Sunday.

sniff, sniff

Okay, what's that smell?  I am in need of a shower, but it's worse than that. There is an odor of something I can't name, can't place, can't figure out where it's coming from and it's definitely a serious "eewwww".

Not skunk, not rotten food, but definitely somewhere in between. And not sweet, either.

Blech.
Need more coffee. Maybe a fresh grinding of beans and a bubbly pot of coffee will take away this smell. 

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
Saturday mornings are better when there is coffee and fewer odd odors. Time to add to the mix - more nail polish remover.

For those of you who know the iOS and MacBook Pro stuff - 

I'm on an MBP with the Bearded Guy's iTunes account. I have not purchased software for this machine through there, so my apps are not in danger that I know of.

How difficult/awkward is it to get my own iTunes account and switch everything on this MBP from his account to mine?

I'm doing some research, but it's all a little murky.

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!
This is the last thing I'm working on before bed...

Om någon mot förmodan skulle få syn på det här gamla skrället så kan ni väl höra av er?
Den blev stulen i natt på CA Reuterswärds gata i centrala Göteborg.
Jag behöver cykeln för att bla transportera min son till förskolan, men det som retar mig mest är att cykeln är en riktig raritet som jag har tänkt att rusta upp.
Tillverkaren heter Vesta och den är sprayad i ful grön färg. Som på bilden.
Tack på förhand :)

It appears I will have no paid work to do for today. While that's not always the best news, it does mean that leaves my afternoon free for making a few changes around here.

Things like laundry and dishes... maybe changing the duvet cover on the bed... definitely repainting nails because that's just fun.

I got a membership in a site that does PDFs of simple classical music for piano. I printed out three of them and while looking them over, my first thought is "Wow, they are too simple". But the reality is that my fingers are still out of practice. So "too simple" may be all I can handle right now.

So it does seem that piano practice should be on my list of things to do today as well.

Goodmorneve, Giggleplus!

At long last!

I slept very late. The Bearded Guy took the Pocket Viking home while I was still in bed and then did his work for today.
Once I was actually awake, it was my turn to work for today.

I am finished.

Now that I am awake and my work is out of my hands, there are still a few things to be done. The paid work is finished for now, yes, but the housework is still calling my name. So far, I've managed to tidy up the rec room (where the little guy sleeps when he's here) and .... oh. I guess that's about it.

There are things waiting to be tried out and tested. Mail came today and there's new makeup in there. I must make time to play with it!

Hmpf.
More coffee, please? I realize it's nearly dinner time, but some days....

Some sleep, some work, some play. That's Sunday here.

We had a discussion last night. 
Bearded Guy Klaus-Heidi: "What would you envision yourself doing within five years of a move to Berlin? And no fair saying 'as little as possible'. What would you do to earn money?"
Me: "If I could really do anything, I would paint."

The problem with my "want" is that I'm not great at any one thing. I'm okay with a few musical instruments, I'm okay on a computer or with a LAN, I'm okay with tools, I'm okay with building and with destruction, I'm okay with a sewing machine and fabrics, I'm okay with paint brushes of all sizes - from outdoor household to fingernails, but I'm just okay.

Seriously jack of all trades, master of none.

My schooling has been varied, I was licensed as one thing and made... more »

This is the third person to be interviewed about changing their name. 
The difference? This particular Klaus-Heidi is the Bearded Guy Who Lives At My House.
This one is my Klaus-Heidi

Yup, he did it. And yes, I am supporting it. 
All in.

It's a good thing I painted nails yesterday. The Pocket Viking is visiting us today - and will be here until Monday!

The Bearded Guy and the Pocket Viking are currently outside for a little bit, and I've managed to do 20 more minutes of movie today, so the work is going fairly well and the guys are okay.
The animals, on the other hand...

One of the cats is older and just lacking in patience. He's also not been feeling his best. I do not, however, tolerate any animal taking a swipe at a person - particularly when the person is tiny.
So while the boys are out, I'll have to lay down the law again with the animals.

Hmmm.

Goodmorneve and Coffee, Giggleplus!
While the child did indeed worry the cat, the child did not touch the cat. 

How do you handle the mix of children and animals?

In between working and a little bit of "clean up the place", I have done some nail painting.

As promised - the results.
I'm playing with new polishes, old brushes and out-of-practice hands.
But it's still fun!


The not-so-fun part is the camera, the card reader, the editing program...sheesh, I'll be happy when the software I love is updated!

Goodmorneve and Coffee, Giggleplus!

I opened my gmail to a message that my vanity URL was ready. Well, isn't that sweet?
I am going to sound unappreciative here for a bit - 

My current vanity URL is gplus.to/callie
The one they are offering is google.com/+DebiVaughtThelin

I'm quite thrilled with the first one. I got it shortly after signing up here. And while Google has indeed been good to me, I find their offered URL to be a bit... unwieldy, as well as lacking in the plus. Yes, I see the plus sign before my name. But it feels a bit off to lose the GooglePlus to google.com and then a plus for my name.

I'm happy for those who have been waiting for theirs and are thrilled to have them. I'm happy for those who like the ease of not having to remember a code name (like the redirect from my current vanity URL) or having a redirect.

While I wait for Canon to update the EOS Utility, I can use the card from inside the camera and the built-in reader on the macbook.

+Noah Bershatsky  - yes, it does feel sluggish!

But once I have the photos, there is still - at the very least - some cropping and resizing to be done.
Gimp no longer works.
However - the Google Drive has an app - Pixlr Editor - and I can do minor editing in there.

It's a bit of a workaround for me. I'm sure it's nowhere near what some folks go through with their shots, but it's definitely more steps than I prefer having.

Managing for now... just managing.

And as for Mavericks... well, it's working. And the only difference in feel is a bit of sluggishness system-wide. A few other programs have updates in their futures, but basically, I'm okay with it.
