In the works

I am working on getting caught up on posts! Khloë’s weekly entries are caught up finally. I’m still sorting through pictures from our trip.

For my reference, upcoming posts include:

+ Khloë’s first Neuromuscular clinic appointment
+ Khloë’s half-birthday party at the cottage
+ Bar Harbor & New Brunswick trip
+ Washington, D.C. (from last October)

Love is your colour, it makes you shine *

I changed the theme a couple days ago. Yes, it’s a little darker, but I like the look of it. I also like the larger text and that I am able to use my own photo for the header image. It’s a picture I took of Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg, Austria back in 2010. One of my favourite shots.

The leaves on the tree in the neighbour’s yard across the street have turned yellow. It looks beautiful, very autumnal. The tree in our yard is still mostly green with a bit of yellow leaves; it doesn’t look nearly as pretty.

Right now there is a delicious-smelling loaf of chocolate chip banana bread in the oven. I’ve got four days off for Thanksgiving weekend. Jordan is home as well. We are expecting his parents this afternoon. Tomorrow we will be spending the day at Upper Canada Village, weather permitting. Hopefully we’ll have a nice weekend. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let the music move you *

I had just started my Dominican post when my computer died! At first we thought it was the hard drive, but after talking to someone at work we figured out that it was the power supply. My husband brought me to Canada Computers downtown and we purchased a much better power supply. After installation, my computer was back to normal and would actually turn on. I was going crazy without my computer!

Now that I’m back, though, I’m going to be even more busy. We have recently received our posting message, which means we have until July to sell our house and buy a new one in our new location. I’m already stressed out trying to get the house in decent order. I feel like it’s a complete write-off, with stuff EVERYWHERE. Trying to purge, get rid of junk that we haven’t used since moving here, etc.

In other news, my nephew is almost 9 months old! He is starting to stand on his own for short periods of time. Uh oh! And he loves to play in curtains.

Playing in the curtains

I love him

I have also decided to participate in fatmumslim’s April photo challenge on Instagram.

April's photo challenge

April 1st - "Your reflection"

April 2nd - "Colour"

Hopefully I can keep up with this, even if I’m late to posting the photos on here. 🙂

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!
