We've had all sorts of video loading dramas this week and I accidentally deleted an old post, so the current video is short to test the new system.
I'm enjoying making them but feeling quite frustrated at our low quality equipment. When we bought our camera it was for still photography, and does that well. The main issues we have, as you no doubt are aware, are stability and mic noise ones. We don't have any slots for an external mic so are restricted to the windy on board mic.
I have visions of beautifully edited and shot, glamorous, easy to watch movies of our gorgeous lives. What we get is a lot more earthy and gritty! Maybe that is more real anyway.
When I had uploading problems I thought that was the end of my youtubing, but now we have found a way I have to decide whether I want to invest in some better equipment. My track record with new enthusiams is pretty short. Have I passed that deadline? Is this one a keeper? Hmmm.
I do enjoy the thought that the kids can watch this all back in the future. And they will. They love watching old videos and laughing at themselves. They sit there in hysterics. It's so fun to watch them watching!
This week I've also returned from a time at our lovely "Leeway" BY MYSELF! A whole weekend!
I can't remember a time when I was away by myself like that. I think the last time was when I was single! It was a lovely time of relaxing and listening to the rain, because of course it was wet until the morning I left (you can see me just before I left taking time on a rock at the beach playing my tin whistle in the video).
Also spending some time reflecting on where I would like to spend my energy next year and working out a self care plan to ensure I can manage homeschooling long term.
When I returned I was sucked into a Facebook post...as you do...which caused me to finally have a go at nailing down my Myers Briggs Type. This has always frustrated me as I really hate doing these tests. I did this one and came up with INFP/borderline INFJ. With some more reading and doing a different test, I decided INFJ fits me best. So now I'm having fun viewing my life and decision making through this lens.

Love the angle!
Anyway, that has been my world for this week.
Til next time,
Keep on creating!
PS Here is the accidentally deleted video for posterity!
