This and that

A new photo of my sweet Caleb from Adam.

Blogger and my iPad are finally playing together well – commenting has gotten easier without the need to sign in multiple times and I’m loving Flipboard to skim through all the blogs I have set up in Google Reader.

During a sleepless night a couple weeks ago, I found an episode of The Tudors to watch on the iPad (NetFlix for Season 1&2; iTunes for Season 3&4) and I’m working my way through all of them…now up to Season 3.

In trying to reset my sleep schedule I made it worse if possible. Now I’m sleeping from late afternoon through the evening which leaves me with no time with Keith…up all night, sleeping all morning is better! Need to try and reset again tomorrow.

Finally a question. Do you watermark your photos? I actually like it when people do then if I save a quilt for inspiration and use an idea from it months later, I know who to credit.

When I remember, I do watermark my quilts and designs with my blog address rather than my name (so people can find me again!) but I tend to turn it off for my scenery photos and forget to turn it back on when I’m working on the computer. I did just download an iPad app to make it easier to watermark the ones I post from here.

  • We got Netflix for Christmas – I don’t think my husband has watched regular tv since – LOL! We’re loving it. Now, I just need to iPad so I can watch anywhere! Good luck getting that sleep schedule back on track!

  • Oh Mary I can’t believe how big Caleb has gotten … he’s a big boy. He’s adorable.

  • Cyndi Holguin:

    Oh my he is getting so big. They do grow so fast How handsome he looks. thank you for sharing.

  • From the photos and what little I’ve seen of Adam, Caleb is looking so much like Adam. Do you see it?

    I have not been able to comment on your blog with my iPad. I read the blogs late at night on the iPad and I put that captcha number in it tells me it wasn’t right and I do it over and over. I know I can’t be getting it wrong that many times! So . . don’t think I’m not reading, I just can’t comment unless I’m on my laptop.

    Mary, I LOVE the Tudor’s! We don’t have SHO or Netflix and Blockbuster does not have the 4th season! I have been hanging since Christmas break and told my hubby that I need Netflix for our anniversay. I am also very impressed with your number-29-Wow. My goal was two and I might make it. One done and quilting #2. Of course I have started two more so I need to stay focused on my goals.

  • I’m also a fan of The Tudors! Caleb is growing so fast and is cuter than ever.

  • Yes, I watermark my photos unless it is something from my phone that I send to blogger.

  • I don’t know how to watermark. What’s the trick?

  • Ya, we need a tutorial on how to watermark our photos. Cute to see him on his feet.

    Thanks so much for the tip to use Flipboard to view all the blogs I am following. Reader just wasn’t cutting it on my iPad. Flipboard worked great. I am also a big fan of Netflix, love it that I can watch a movie, with headphones, in bed, while my husband is sleeping.

    I follow your blog, can’t believe how much you get done. I have all the time in the world but seem to be in a real quilting slump. Will take some inspiration from you.

    Thanks again for the tip.

  • Mary I’m having a little trouble commenting so I hope I’m not repeating myself. 🙂 I came over from Stash Manicure and have enjoyed going through some of your older posts and getting inspiration. I’m also curious about Flipboard. I’ve borrowed an IPad from my daughter who is a librarian and has several. I wanted to try it out and so far like it a lot. Is Flipboard just a different way of getting blogs on a Reader…I don’t like the way Reader is on the IPad. blessings, marlene
