I have about half an hour before I can paint the next coat of paint on my new chalkboard. So I made a book cover using the O’Reilly book cover generator.

tasty dreams

January 27, 2008 at 12:20 pm (dream) (, )

I had the best dream last night.  Chocolate was flowing down the streets.  It was oddly neat – it stayed in the streets.  When It cooled it was a fudge-like consistency.  My friend B ( I’ve known  her since I was 5) lent  me a spoon.  That’s a generous friend.

Whoa. Way cooler than I expected it to be. I just put together a teeny, tiny search engine for my tiny bit of town. I live in the city of Fremont, Ca – in the Historic Niles District. I put together about 7 site of trusted info on Niles, including the city site. Then I put the word Jazz into the search engine. I came up with expected results, plus a few unexpected results. Fantastic.

The reason I decided to put a search engine for Niles together is because the information about events in my area can be scattered, and I wanted a quick place to look things up. I think if I add the local newspapers , I will really get a good list of events. It will be a bit broader than Niles, but still very local.

Last week I talked about how busy  my job can be, but I don’t think I mentioned how much fun it can be too.  I still feel  like I am learning to do story time, so I still have to do some prep stuff at home – practicing my stories, putting together new songs/finger plays /flannel stories  or doing a test run on a craft.  Anyway, after dinner last night I quickly cleared off the table.  DH started doing the dishes but I said, “I don’t have time for that now, I have to color”.  he just looked at me and said, ” You have the strangest job”.    I think he is jealous.

I almost missed an important day. Today ( January 23) is National Pie Day. While I still have no pie, I did celebrate by watching weebl and bob.

Ok, I admit it. I am afraid of LibraryThing. My online friends all got into it last year and they were obsessed. They would stay up all night entering their books . And then there were the questions they had to ask …’what if the book belong to my SO? should I include it? ” “how about the books I haven’t read yet. do they count? ‘ and ‘ What about the books I will get rid of one day ?’. And these are not librarians(well some are) , just people that understand that books are part of any decorating theme. But I bit the bullet and started adding a few books. here is My library , at the least the beginning.  So far I have just added a few cookbooks.  However, I  joined my online friends group – and they are all ready luring me into  adding other books that I know we have in common.
