A change is in the air

There is a new look about the place! Since I love taking photos, I’ve decided to start posting pictures with my blog posts. Makes things a little more interesting. I’ve also added a section for recipes. I love cooking for Jordan and I, especially baked goods or meals in the slow cooker, so I thought it would be a good idea to post my favourite “tried and true” recipes. A lot of the meals I make are from Company’s Coming cookbooks, but some have come from my mother as well. That’s all for now!

Gadding with ghouls

I have decided to use a WordPress theme. This is a huge change to my domain, since normally I would create the layout and coding myself. I really don’t have the time to update layouts anymore, so I’ve decided to leave the site like this for awhile. I like the simplicity of this style, and I like how everything is nice and neat.

I’ve finished reading all of the 9 new books I purchased after Christmas. Now I can go back and re-read old books again. I’ve started on the Harry Potter series again. I’m on the second book and can’t stop laughing. I love Arthur Weasley. Okay, I love all the characters!

I also finished season six of “Reba”, which my youngest sister gave to me. I really love that show, it makes me laugh so much. But now what should I watch? Hmmm, maybe “Relic Hunter”.

Jordan got the package I sent to him. New socks, clean green T-shirts, cookies, a mirror so he can see his face while shaving, an electric razer, etc. I hope he gets good use out of those things in the next two weeks before they send him home!

“You’re just as sane as I am.”

Well, a brand-new layout at long last! I had been wanting to do a Luna layout for quite awhile now but I just never had the proper inspiration. But here it is! Luna Lovegood is one of my favourite Harry Potter characters; she totally makes me laugh each and every time I read the series.

I’ve also changed around the way the site is set up. There is no need for extra stuff besides my blog, since I don’t have time to update anything. I would like to start over with Media Shelf but I don’t have the time. Oh one of these days, perhaps. I think I have re-done the thing twice already and still have never finished adding all my collection. Sigh. And wedding pictures, yes I know. I wish I had more time!

When I look into your eyes, the sky’s a different blue *

I have upgraded to the newest version of WordPress. I can be so lazy about these sorts of things, but I figured I might as well just do it. Have to get used to the new look of the dashboard and I can’t figure out how to get an avatar.

Anyway, I’m on my second day off from work in a row. Yesterday I baked carrot cake with cream cheese icing, which turned out really good. Today I hope to make lava cupcakes with Jersey Milk chocolate as the centres.

I finished the book I was reading and ran upstairs to get the next one I wanted to read, only to discover that the book has disappeared. So far I am missing three books and I’ve already gone through the unpacked boxes looking for them, so I have a feeling they may have been lent out and I have no idea who has them. Quite possibly one of my parents? Argh.

I don’t have much planned for today. Probably will play TS2. I very rarely play the new game: The Sims 3. It’s an okay game, but I still prefer the old game and all its expansions, mostly because I like to play all different characters whereas in the new game it’s difficult to do that.

I’m thinking of doing a page about our wedding and posting photos. I don’t know when I’ll get to that, but it’s something I’d like to do eventually. The pictures turned out so lovely that I like to show them off. It’s hard to believe that Jordan and I have been married a month today! He’s out of town for a couple days, for work, so I’m on my own this week. Which pretty much means I need to deal with the daddy-longlegs spiders on my own! Eww, they really creep me out!

I watched “Enchanted” yesterday afternoon. A cute movie. Maybe today I’ll watch “The Kite Runner”. I’ve had it for awhile but still haven’t seen it.

Tag cloud

I have added a tag cloud to the sidebar. Took me awhile to figure out the proper coding since I’m not using actual WordPress themes. But there you have it, the cloud is bursting with tags! I’ve gone through some previous entries and tagged them but not all are finished.

The snow that fell yesterday — our first snowfall of the year — has melted.

I’m going to make some tea and play TS2, I think.
