Menu Plan Monday: Let's Play Squash

I'm sorry I'm posting this late. I see that some of you guys stopped by on Monday and, well, there was nothing new to see. I did have a plan in mind, I just needed time to write it up. I'm back to doing mostly paleo-friendly instead of Whole30.

This month has been a bust diet and photography-wise (which reminds me to write my post about how I did actually lose weight doing Whole30).

I have decided that I don't really like February. I'll examine the reasons later. It probably has something to do with being the dead of winter. I know, what am I complaining about, I live in Southern California for goodness sake, what winter! But, being the dead of winter, I'm not getting enough sunlight, which means that I have random bouts of S.A.D.

Monday: Spaghetti and meatballs (well, meat sauce) and mushrooms. Mushrooms have Vitamin D.

Tuesday: Work-related dinner party
Wednesday: Work-related dinner party (no, that isn't a typo. Things are busy at work).
Thursday:  Detox - z…

Recap: Capture Your 365 Feb 1-7

So, it's already February. How did that happen? I've been really busy at work, so the blogging is a bit behind schedule. Here's some of my shenanigans. I posted a lot on Instagram this past week if you're feeling voyeuristic.

Making the Kindle Paperwhite 2 Useful for an Avid Reader...

... With an outrageously large digital library.

As I was trying to set up my Kindle to work with Calibre, I realized that over the last six years or so, I have gone through A LOT of ebooks, and I have them downloaded from all over the place -- Baen, Tor, Project Gutenburg, Smashwords, and all of the major eBook retailers. The smallest part of my library is Amazon (only 169 books). That's why I was desperately trying to get my hands on a Kobo Aura (but not so desperate as to order direct from Japan on ebay). Almost 4000 books, novellas and short stories in epub or PDF format (not all of them read, mind you).

So, this past weekend, I went through database hell. I started working on the +How-To GeekScreensaver Jailbreak --which really needs to be updated to state 1) it doesn't work on the PW2 and 2) if you attempt it anyway, DO NOT register your device and get the updated software because then you are SOL up a river without a raft, with a flash flood headed your way--so I could i…

Recap: Capture Your 365 - Week 4-5

The theme for the week began on the 25th with Resolve. The rest belong to last week's theme of  space -- but not Above and Beyond. If you don't get the reference, watch it here, or buy it here.

And now that I have gotten the requisite geek reference out of my head and onto paper... for your viewing pleasure and constructive criticism, here is Week 4/5 - all mobile photography.
