Today I needed to accomplish some things other than blogging (haha). I have so many projects going (always), that I split the afternoon into twelve 15-minute segments and worked a little bit on each project. It looks like I got a lot done! I needed that.
I started an email dialogue with the other members of the hike group for May. And thanks to some other hiker groups I've found out how easy and useful Google Maps are. They won't work for hiking with, but they are great for planning and sharing with people at a distance. You can see some other examples (by other people) at my North Country Trail News blog, if you are interested.
So I grabbed an image of the map and added a couple of labels, just so you can see where this is, more or less. Total is 130 miles. Link to the real thing, that you can zoom in or change to satellite background, etc is below.
Finally, I'm going to add a post about another blog. I'm being self serving to do so, because it enters me in a contest to win this beautiful painting, (1st prize) or one of 5 signed prints.
I still have mixed feelings about the blogosphere-- all this internal swapping of points, links, games, prizes-- but when I first joined Entrecard John Wright Art was one of the very first blogs that I marked as a favorite. I have a real love for watercolor, and great respect for anyone who can do it well. He does! And I really like the picture he is going to give away, so... this blog is MY quality day, so I can do it if I want to!
