Lent 41: give thanks

27 03 2013

There’s surely an easier way to do this word cloud thing than this.. but this is what I did for Monday’s photo. I made a word cloud of Psalm 118:1. On this website.  I saved the wordcloud. Then took a screenshot of it. Then uploaded. Lent 41: give thanks

I’m giving thanks to the Lord for technology. Tonight, at least. Somedays it’s not so easy to give thanks to the Lord for technology. Or many things for that matter.

But, the Lord is still good. And his love still endures forever.

And so, we give thanks. For technology… and many many many many many more things, people, situations, etc.





Lent 15: almond butter

27 02 2013

I took today’s photo before 11 am.

I wrote my post a couple hours ago. (about 8:30 pm)

Saved the post draft.

Did other things for the next hour and a half or so.

Returned to blogging.

Tried to upload the photo to my blog’s media folder.

Hmmm.

I walked away to give the computer time to catch up.

I put my laundry in the dryer.

I returned to the computer. Tried to upload the photo to my blog’s media folder.

I washed my face.

Sighed.

Figured I’d write a nice post without a photo. No biggie, even for a blogger trying to post a photo-a-day during Lent.

Edited previously written draft of post. Saved Draft.

Tried to preview. (I always do this.)

Was asked for my username and password.

Ready to give up.

Signed back in to site.

Lost previous tweaking of aforementioned blog draft.

Jim walked in about then and said he thought I should blog about making almond butter tonight.

I made almond butter tonight in the Vita-Mix. It took me less than 2 minutes. No joke.

The almond butter is awesome.

Maybe I should make almond butter more often and try to upload photos to my media folder less often.

Then again, I still have to clean the Vita-Mix.
