Besides reading Fifty Shades Freed, I am working my way through David Pogue's book iPhone: The Missing Manual. I got an iPhone 4S for my birthday back in January and was disappointed to find that there was no instruction manual. This trend of packaging electronics with a simple slip of paper that directs you to an online help database does not sit well with me. Part of the fun of getting a new gadget for me is poring over the manual and learning about all the functions. Some people, like my husband, prefer to randomly press buttons until they figure everything out but that doesn't work for me. Within the first 20 pages of Pogue's book, I learned three things about my iPhone that I didn't figure out in the last three months of poking around.
In last week's Sunday Salon post, I mentioned that spring puts me in a crafty mood. To that end, I checked out a book on string art from the library. My house doesn't exactly have a groovy 1970s aesthetic, yet I am obsessed with trying my hand at creating some string art wall hangings for the den. Thank goodness for a public library that holds on to a few retro and kitschy gems!
