Fighting the Good Fight
Did I ever mention how much I hate computers? Or at least software upgrades?
My perfectly good camera/picture editing software from Kodak was just dandy. Simple and essentially idiot proof. You know - for dinosaurs like me?
Until......we upgraded my computer to Windows 7 and I had to upgrade my camera/picture editing software along with a few others that won't run in compatibility mode.
Well, the new program does some nifty things - like embed text - but between that and Win 7 pictures are not saved in the same way in the same place as before. I am sure I will eventually get it figured out, but it seems like such a waste of time. :P~
Anyway, I haven't heard back from Albuquerque yet, but I decided to start pulling the warp yarns (and wind some of the warps). I'll be starting my travels on Labour Day and time will suddenly get very short, indeed.
In between trying to figure out new software I've also been working with two guilds in Florida nailing down details for January. I'm looking forward to escaping winter for a couple of weeks or so. Check my Schedule page in a month or so for details. I'm waiting to confirm dates and topics.
Today I also started my ledger entries for July/August. With the HST (prov. and federal sales tax are now combined) bookkeeping is going to get a lot more complicated for small businesses like mine. I can't afford to let 3 months worth of entries go and expect to get them all done quickly. Things like this make 'retirement' look more and more attractive!
Unfortunately my 'retirement plan' is to keep on working................
