I’ve tried to find good solutions for posting more audio content on this blog. I think I finally found an alternative to Odeo. My younger brother graciously gave me a gift certificate to the Apple store for Christmas. Since I can’t use this type of gift certificate for iTunes purchases, I upgraded to QuickTime Pro. My first recording in quite some time isn’t too terribly interesting, but it’s a start MonkeyTalks.(*well well well, it was brought to my attention this link doesn’t work. I haven’t been able to fix the problem yet so I will post something new) For those of you already dialed in with podcasting, I added a feed link in the right margin.
If you don’t have headphones at work or can’t get QuickTime to work for you. I can summarize the audio in four words, nice weather equals gardening. Finally, we had nice weather on Saturday and Sunday. This means I finally caught up on some much needed yardwork. I removed a couple young apple trees the previous owner planted too close to other vegetation. I weeded out some of our raised veggie beds and along the fence. I also installed a really bright light at the back door out of house. Thus making it much easier to identify those after hours visitors of ours. Now it is important for me to teach them the secret knock.
We finally bought purchased some new fixtures for the basement bathroom remodel project. We got out our sink, shower fixtures, towel bar and heater/fan. Mrs. Lessinges and I will place our tile order tomorrow and we should be ready to start work within the next week. How exciting.
Next weekend there’s a huge blogger rally in Portland, Oregon. I’m very optimistic we’ll make the three hour drive south on Friday after we find out the sex of our child. Should be great fun to see many bloggers on Saturday night. Oh, you know what’s not fun? I’m tired of people rolling their eyes when we tell them we’re finding out the sex before birth. I suppose this is the same look I will see when we choose to use disposable diapers, breastfeed for only six months, and raise a vegetarian child named Parsley. Patience young Singe, patience!
