In a recent email, I noticed that Barnes & Noble was offering a new case for my nook simple touch with glow light. As I am quite fond of bold colors, I decided I liked the lime green which goes well with the black and grey case I am using. I slipped it on and it is snug enough but not too hard to get off.
Then, I decided to see if it fit inside my Cocoon case with the grid it. It is perfect!
Now I can take it out and put it in my pocketbook for short trips or pack it inside the case for long trips.
On sale at Target for $19.99 ($5 off) was just what I was looking for for my work on the porch. The "sidecar" slides into the side (and is adjustable for size) when not in use. It is shown here with a mouse, but I can put a small notebook and pen on it to take notes.
The lapdesk is so I won't burn my legs when using my netbook or laptop. Both get hot when used for a long time. Yes, I have a plug on the porch.
The underurface had rubbery treads so it won't slide off my lap and the upper surface is washable. Wow, do I need that! It will fit in my laptop bag! I tried it with my iPad and the Padprop I use daily and because it is non-skid, that works well too!
It has been a while since I scanned some more of my parent's family photos. Yesterday was so hot that I picked several photos (about summer, mostly) and assembled my archival envelopes and scanned them.
Using the Flip-pal is so easy that the temptation is to scan "billions" and feel accomplished. Then, of course, the hard part begins of putting them in the right folder and posting them online all edited and color-corrected. Most need cropping because they are not 4 x 6. Most need adjusting for color.
So, in an hour, I had seven photos scanned, manipulated, archived, and posted for blogging. Now, I need to pick 7 more for the next session.
