Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Here’s my first stab at a video Weekend Coffee Share using a video on Adobe’s Spark, which is free. (So many Adobe products are very expensive IMHO.)

There’s a tune that will play so mute your computer if that’s a problem.

The video didn’t take long to make, maybe 30 minutes, but that is longer than to just write a post, but I’ve been stretching my creativity this past week, which I’ve enjoyed.

Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

 

 

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I returned to the playwrights group and there were four more writers, and they all brought good material to critique.

I’d also say that I just learned that my local library staff consists of 90% part time workers. Ninety percent! No one mentioned that in graduate school.

I’m having a great time learning to use Adobe Illustrator to draw. Now the problem is how to get a copy of it. It’s so expensive. I can use it at the library, but it’s good to have pre-set brushes and such.

I finished the audiobook The Mating Season by P.G. Wodehouse and highly recommend it.

I volunteered Saturday at my library’s makerspace, which held an open house. It was a big success and I expect a lot more people will use it.

I’m moving along with the online course I’m designing. I’ve learned the fine points of Rise and like how everything’s shaping up. I’m designing a refresher course on how to use the downloadable apps for ebooks, films, and music. One cool thing I learned is that on Overdrive, you can set the font to one of two fonts that’s designed for people with dyslexia. The letters are thicker on the bottom and that’s believed to be easier for them to read. Check it out or share that information.
