“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.

Confessions of a shopaholic…

Lately I’ve been going swimming with Jordan in the evening at the military pool. It’s relaxing to do that after work a few days a week. The pool is usually quiet and the hot tub’s nice.

I have also collected boxes and begun packing. My room is beginning to look like it was hit by a tornado. There are things all over the place, including the new stuff I’ve purchased for the apartment.

We finally got a cordless phone set, a 16-piece dinnerset, and a Hampton silverware set that matches the ones Jordan already has. Today at HomeSense I found a set of three ceramic canisters that are perfect for cookies, sugar, and tea. I’m so happy I found them because I had been looking for two days and hadn’t found anything remotely attractive; these ones are very pretty but not tacky-looking! Also picked up random things like plastic pop-top containers, a metal mixing bowl, a 3-pack of Wiltshire scissors that were on sale, oven mitts, and um a new Point Zero bag. hehe

I think one of these days I will need to do a reinstall of WordPress because the errors I have on my Dashboard must be causing the problem I am having with deletion of spam comments that are not sent to “moderation” or “akismet”. This is rather annoying. {edit} I tried reinstalling the script but I still got the same errors. Finally I reverted back to an older version and the errors have disappeared. {/edit}

In the heat of summer

Upgraded to the latest secure version of WordPress. Everything is working properly, although I have an error about an index_extra page in my Dashboard. I have no idea what it means and it doesn’t seem to be affecting anything so I’ll leave it for now.

It’s very warm in the apartment. I don’t feel like doing anything. I washed the dishes earlier, but now I don’t feel like cleaning anything else. I finished reading Shopaholic & Sister (Sophie Kinsella) a few days ago; read it in two and a half days. Such a funny book! And today I finished The Virgin’s Lover (Philippa Gregory), the third book in the series about Elizabeth I. I really liked it. And now I’ve begun The Undomestic Goddess (Sophia Kinsella).

I need to get some boxes so I can start packing.
