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.
I have been working quite a bit. On my days off, not doing a whole lot. Probably playing TS2 to my heart’s content.
The other day I brought my wedding dress in to see how much it would cost to have some alterations done. I have to call the lady back in June so that she can steam it and then get to work.
Found a place to have our hair and my make-up done. It’s pretty close to my apartment, which is great. Price is right, too.
I’m having Keesje and Dad over tomorrow for dinner. I forgot that Jordan is working late; oh well, he’ll miss a good dinner. I am going to attempt to make beef enchiladas and bake a cheesecake. We shall see.
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.
I am on my third day off in a row and am getting very bored. I’ve read, played TS2 to my heart’s content, watched “Sex & the City” episodes, gone to the post office, made food, researched resorts in Puerto Vallarta….Thank goodness I have a shift tomorrow, otherwise I would go crazy.
Didn’t do anything for Thanksgiving. I worked on the Sunday, which is when my family had dinner over at Aunt Heather’s. So I didn’t get to go because they ate early in the day. Then on the Monday I sat around doing next to nothing while other people enjoyed turkey and stuffing. That evening, though, Keesje came over for dinner (stir fry) and we hung out for a bit. Downloaded some new music.
I might be going over to my mom’s for dinner tonight. I better phone and find out about that.
Oh I completely forgot to blog about my work’s Christmas stock night. On the 6th, a few of us went into work for 7 pm and worked on getting Christmas items out onto the floor until about 4:40 am when Angela and I finally punched out. It was quite a night. We were treated to Wendy’s frosties and other little treats while we worked. Also, Angela and I wrote a song while we worked; we were really tired and crazy. I believe we completed “The 12 Days of JYSKmas” by 3:30 am and sang it for those left over at 4 am. It was fun. 🙂
It’s just about bedtime for me. I’ve had yesterday and today off work. Yesterday I went over to Kendra & Jay’s for their annual backyard barbeque. I baked chocolate cupcakes on the Saturday, and then Sunday at noon Kendra picked me up, then Keesje, and we went to the grocery store to pick up pop and snacks. Back at her place, we helped to chop vegetables for the veggie tray and set things up. There were 9 of us in total, not too large a group. I think everyone had a good time. After the food, we went inside to play Wii. I’m not much of a fan of video games, so I watched, took pictures, and a funny video of Amy “crashing into a pineapple”. lol
Today I did a whole lot of nothing. Well, if nothing consists of TS2, watching “Brick Lane”, putting photos from the BBQ on Facebook, making the first page of my Thailand scrapbook, and reading!
