New Things

Like my new template? :)

I found it on www.btemplates.com and couldn't resist. After all, the old one had been in place since I began blogging almost three years ago. This one could hardly be more me. It's amazing how open the internet is to personalization. Maybe too much so--it can become a rather narcissistic pastime.

But I like my new blog template. Unfortunately, I individually customized every one of the previous 175 posts with font-color, meaning that if I don't want them green I now have to go back and un-set that one at a time. That might take awhile.

Maybe I can do it when I get my new computer. After several years of resisting the laptop trend, I've finally decided I want one. It's just too cold in our little study room, and the last thing I want to do at the end of a workday is sit at a desk. A laptop can come on the couch with me. Since it was time to upgrade anyway, and my birthday is coming up, Lou and I picked out a beautiful little Dell the other day and hopefully I'll have it before long.

My most recent Silhouette article, Same Old Story, made it into the online journal Curator Magazine last week--and, shame on me, I'm only just now getting around to posting about that fact. As I hadn't heard of the magazine, I went and looked around their site and it's good work. I felt quite honored to be published on their page.

Lou and I are taking another Auntie-C suggestion and spending the weekend at home, relaxing together. (He's nearby doing his Office of Readings, in Latin.) Auntie-C said she and her husband do this once every month--get housework and shopping and everything else done in advance, and spend a whole weekend just being home together doing the kind of things we like to do. Smart lady. Being introverts, Lou and I had no trouble seeing the value of that plan.

On account of which, I am now going to get up and serve the corned beef and cabbage that's been in the crock-pot. Then, I think we're going to watch Wall-E. It's a good day.


  1. No way! We're watching Wall-E tonight too! : ) I like the new template.

  2. That's hilarious. I'll look forward to hearing what you guys think of the movie. :D

  3. I love the new template. When your page started opening up I was like wow! How's that for a sentence :) And to keep with the post comment theme...I have not seen Wall-E yet and I'm not sure if I will.
