I’m off work all week and we’re finally painting a few rooms in our house after living here almost three years. That’s a record for living in one home, by the way, in our nearly 16-year marriage.
Do not read the rest of this unless you like boring update posts that don’t have any real content.
I changed the banner on June 1 and changed my stylesheet slightly. Force a refresh in your browser so it isn’t still pulling the old code from your cache. (That’s Shift-F5 for most of you, by the way, or hold Shift while clicking the Reload button. For Apple users, it’s something to do with the Apple key, I think.)
I also added a feature in the right sidebar called “Bytes of Life.” It’s the last few entries from my Twitter account. If you haven’t heard of Twitter, then you’ll probably be just fine. It’s a way to jot down a quick thought without making an entire blog post out of it, but some “tweets,” as they’re called, could lead to a longer piece.
The Twitter tweets also are a way to see what’s going on in our lives even on days when I don’t post a new entry. Perhaps only family and/or friends will find them interesting, or maybe nobody will. Whatever the case, they’ll be there barring some technical glitch from Twitter.
I don’t like relying on a third-party service for blog features — especially those blocked by many employers’ Internet filters, but for at least this week I’ll keep it out there and see how it goes.
I’ll join Anna’s Project Blue as soon as I can.
