Another Unfinished Housekeeping Chore

Blog, Housekeeping, annoying, bugging me, blogging, chores, pet peevesHow did it get to be Saturday so soon? I know that Granny1947 doesn’t like when I use the word but it’s Housekeeping time! This is what’s bugging me today!

Granny, just remember these are my housekeeping chores and I have something for you today.

Last week I said I was going to check out some more image sites and let you know what I’ve found. As many of you know I haven’t been feeling too good this week, and while I did manage to check out a few of the ones on my list, I didn’t get to all of them. This chore stays on my list.

I will list a couple that I did manage to check and found interesting.

Do you want to search more than just Google?  Search by Creative Commons is a search tool that you might find handy not just for images but video, music and other media. One page to search 7 sites.

There are other small things I need to take care of, but I’m finding that checking out the image sites is taking far longer than I thought. I’m spending far too much time browsing all the images to see what’s available. 🙂

Now this is for Granny1947 and others who aren’t sure how to make some of the smiley faces. You have to remember not to leave any spaces when you are typing the characters.

😉     ; )    or      😉     :wink :

😦     : (    or      😦     :sad :

😐     : |     or     😐     :neutral :

Sometimes I find that the smiley won’t work if I don’t type a hyphen between the two characters, so I’ve gotten into the habit of always including it.

Usually I give a shout out to my Blogging Buddies on Saturday, but this weekend I’m waiting until Sunday because I have something special planned for the new week.

Now there is nothing bugging me today!
