We’re back!

Jobs continue to flow in, we have now officially earned enough with FreshPlans to pay the hosting, and we have worked out a good system for our workflow. So, having accomplished all that, we went out to the art museum last night. I say “the art museum” as if there were only one. Really, there […]

#1 daughter and I are up visiting #2 daughter. The main point of the trip was for us to attend a meeting for a conference we’re co-hosting, and that meeting took place last night. We’ll still be up here for a couple of days. We’re hoping to have a bit of fun while we’re here, […]

I worked pretty much all weekend, except for last night after dinner. The boys and I played Scrabble, and then I settled in with knitting, my Kindle, and Leverage on TV. I’m making good progress with the second front section of Diagonals from Lacy Little Knits. On the Kindle I had Conquering Chaos: How to […]

We went to the farmers market yesterday morning and  I used some of the good things we got there to make a proper dinner: chicken with a basil and pepper sauce, Potatoes Lyonnaise, and orange-chocolate coconut macaroons. Apart from that, I worked most of the day. I did finish the hospital website, and I finished […]

Yesterday was quite a stressful day. Nothing big, but every few minutes there was a small thing: the new designer couldn’t get into the site he was supposed to be working on and needed help; the designer I’m working with on a big new project sent me an unusable site map for the new site; […]

I’m just finishing up the end notes of The Selfless Gene. Definitely an interesting book. Foster begins by pointing out that both people using evolution to evangelize for atheism and people using creation to evangelize for fundamentalist Christianity are taking the position that there is just one thing explaining everything in the world. While acknowledging […]

I haven’t written about evolution in a while, probably because no one has said anything new on the subject for a while. Now I’m reading The Selfless Gene, by Charles Foster, which is currently (first three chapters) saying exactly what I think. That so rarely happens with books, you know. I read something and think, […]

Yesterday I got some work done — my Amazon reviews, blogging for my Aussies, that kind of stuff — and played Scrabble with the kids and began reading the very enjoyable book The Selfless Gene: Living with God and Darwin, which we discussed over teriyaki steak and local peaches last night. Then, around 8:30 at […]

Books and Charm

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

I didn’t sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge this year, but I am reading. While I was up in the Big City with #2 daughter last week, I went with her to a cool place called Half Price Books. It’s an enormous bookstore filled with, I guess, remainders. I got a book on Photoshop […]
