Busy Summer

Wow! The calendar sure has been busy lately.  This past weekend was Snook Farm Fest where I had an AdvoCare/Popcorn Shirt booth.  It was dang hot out there and crowds were low, but I did make a few  sales that made it worth while. The breeze (wind) felt good, but it wasn't good for the clothes rack and signs that kept blowing down.

Note to self: No more outdoor booths after May 1 and before October 1.

Over the past few weeks, we have been working on props for our EFCA church camp and going to skit practices.  Each Wednesday, we have also been working on our BUMP (Building Urban Missions Project) trainings.  Starting Sunday, we will be working at the camp.  It's always a lot of work, but rewarding as well.  If we can help even ONE more soul make it to Heaven, then it is all worth it.

At work, I've been working on creating a manual for a PowerPoint 101 class.  I'll be conducting the first training this week.  I'm also doing web trainings to prepare for taking exams to get the Microsoft Office Specialist certification for 2010 versions.

We've been so busy, I haven't even had the time to do much geocaching at all lately, though I did manage to deploy one BIT cache sticker on Opencaching.US.  I can't seem to make any of the podcasts at the live times, so I try to keep up with the recorded versions while I'm in the car commuting to work or one of these functions. It's always cool to hear names of cachers I know (or know of) in the various podcasts. I've had some trouble with internet connections at home, too, so that doesn't help.

Our BUMP trip is to Baltimore in July and I'll be one of the drivers. ~1400 miles one-way and I'll be hauling 1 other adult and 3-4 kids.  I'm going to need new tires before we go. $$$$ and another errand!

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…

Rideshare in B/CS

It's official!  I'm now also a driver for Uber. Here's hoping the two programs overlap nicely.
