That may be the most unlikely post title I have ever come up with, but it works, and it seems to describe my life right now.
I am gradually whittling down my massive photo archives from 60,000+ to a respectable 37,000, with many, many more to be deleted. My goal, a very realistic 10,000 which may not be attainable, but a girl can dream, and it’s a lot of work. So far three days steady, and no end in sight. There are rumours that I might be a bit obsessed, but I have to get this done.
So bear with me, I am getting to your comments, and blogs, it’s just taking a lot longer then I thought it would. I have this “get ‘er done” feeling about this project, and am seeing it through to the end.
Now I have a question for you, one of those, “tell me I’m not the only one” kind of questions. I seem to have a quirky memory that can recall with great clarity the moment I click the button on my camera to take a shot, I can almost “re-feel” taking it again. This happens on a good amount of my images, even those from way back. Is this normal and does anyone else get that “feeling,” of reliving the moment when they look at their images.
Also what are your thoughts on the new Google Auto backup that is available if you use Chrome as a browser? It’s hard to find anyone talking about it, and although I have alternative backups, it’s always nice to have another. Are you using it at all, do you like it, hate it, am shrugging your shoulders thinking what is she talking about? Do you use the 15G backup, or are you doing the smaller supposedly unlimited photos version?
Please do tell.
Next come the sauerkraut.
I found a recipe on Pinterest describing how to make small batch sauerkraut, I have never had home made so I have no idea how it’s supposed to look. They do say, it’s nothing like the pasteurized commercial kind you can buy in the store. It’s delicious, and still crunchy after 2 weeks. it’s also very salty, even after I repeatedly rinsed it. So if anyone has experience in making this I would love some input, or advice.
Snow, it’s gradually disappearing from under the trees, there is brown under there, can’t believe it, brown icy stuff. We will be getting the tail end of the polar vortex that is shifting around, and are looking out for more cold weather…February is here to stay for a long time, just like they said it would. And they say the weatherman is never right.
Hang in there, spring will come soon enough, there is light at the end of the tunnel. And as soon as I can get my images organized, I will be back and blogging properly.
Until then, it’s delete, and backup, delete and backup.
