to apply for a new bee-hind? 3 hours and 57 minutes ago I sat down here to start uploads. I just finished 10 minutes ago! I did run to the kitchen and make my morning frappuccino while the uploads were working and ran to the bedroom and got dressed for the day. However, that's not a whole lot of respite for my sitter! A lot of days I will jump up and dust in this room during uploads. However, I have a new computer-related project that I'm working on and I just kept at that this morning.
I bought ACDSee 15 yesterday. It was on sale for like 50% off. I have a LOT of Commercial Use stuff accumulated over 4 years of designing. Some I purchased, some I created/developed myself. Anyway, I find that I spend a whole lot of time searching for stuff. I know it's here somewhere, but where? That is really inefficient, time wise. So, if I sort everything and label it, maybe next time I want to look at it, I can find it. What a blessing that would be!!!!!!!!!
If you're not a digital scrapper, you've probably never heard of ACDSee. And, if you are a digital scrapper, you still may not have heard of it if you didn't hang out on some "techie" message boards a few years back. It is basically a data-base program, designed for digital scrapping and/or digital photos.
It can be very labor intensive or somewhat easier, depending on how a designer labels her products. For example, if you buy from Mary and Mary labels her papers like this: green hearts, blue stripes, yellow flowers, red flowers, red stripes, and so on, it will be easier. If, however, you buy from Jane and Jane labels her papers like this: paper 1, paper 2, paper 3........., you are in for a tough time of it. You can assign a group of files for ACDSee to search for anything labeled "red" and it will pull it up. You can then label everything a designer called red as "red" and the next time you need a "red" paper the program will search out and show you every paper labeled red!!!!!!! Or you can search for anything labeled "stripes" and it will pull up everything that's been labeled "stripes" in one fell swoop.
So, that is what I did during uploads this morning, sorted and labeled files......
So, today, I will continue on with that as well as finishing the mini kit I've been working on. I'm REALLY close. I created and saved the solids last night. I need to build the preview of the solids, crop it, and insert it into the mini kit preview. I need an alpha and I want to add some curly ribbons and I'm done! It's cute as the dickens, y'all!
I have one individual return to assemble and one partnership return that I need to prepare. I will at least get the individual return ready to go today.
And, there is basically no part of my house that couldn't stand attention!
So, yes, I'll be busy today.
Someone made a prophecy over me recently. What was said was that "my best year ever is at hand". Wow! I've had some miracles in my life time, so I am pretty excited about this. Even more, as I was thanking Dad for the prophecy last night, I really felt the witness of the Holy Spirit. SO, I am full of expectancy. I have a wish list of blessings.........but He says He will bless us "beyond anything we can ask or think"! And the best part of all is that it was made clear that this is NOT ONE blessing but more than one! I don't know what's coming, but you can bet it's gonna be good.
Years ago, I remember reading in my Bible that "the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand". My unschooled interpretation of that was that the Kingdom of Heaven was coming soon. Well, that was written 2000 years ago and 2000 years isn't "soon" on my calendar. It always puzzled me. Then I learned that the proper view/interpretation of that scripture is that the Kingdom of Heaven is right here. It is like a paralel world. If we can get beyond what we can see, taste, hear, touch, or smell, there it is--cue spooky music, LOL--in a paralel spiritual world. From where I am now, in the middle of the US desert, I can get to the Kingdom of Heaven through prayer and faith!
So, it hit me that the same phrase is used in that prophecy: "my best year ever is AT HAND". I guess the route to my best year ever must be the same--prayer and faith. I'm pretty good at the prayer thing but less skilled at the faith thing. So, I decided to pray about that! I definitely need/want those blessings!
By the way, here's a blessing in my life. I now have 3 Panasonic phones hooked up, in the kitchen, in the office, and in the bedroom. They all ring! And, I can answer on any of them. I no longer have to sprint to the phone outside the kitchen door, hurdling dogs on the way, and use the speaker phone in the bent over position to talk on a phone! How's that for 21st century technology at work! I'm very happy that this has been accomplished!
Well, that's it for now. I've got an even longer to do list than usual with my new project. YOU be BLESSED today! Today might be my "at hand" day--I'm expecting great things.
