I’ve been tinkering all weekend long. Putting up the tree, decorating the house, and making english toffee to send away. The tinkering that drove me insane was trying to redesign a live site. You’d think it would be easy because WordPress has all these ready made themes, but it’s easier to do your own thing without messing with somebody else’s code.

I lost my right sidebar for most of the weekend. It was suggested that I just get a new theme. I preferred to beat this one into submission. Actually, it was more like coaxing, but why quibble?

Meanwhile, I scooped up some free clip art to make me a festive banner. You must remember that I’m a database geek, not a graphics geek. Graphics require better eyesight and more creativity than I have readily available. If you came by during the weekend, you saw all kinds of weirdness, but no new posting. This is just a reminder that I am working on something for tomorrow.

I’m tired. But I don’t think I can leave that stupid banner alone.

You might think that this photo is more proof (after yesterday’s post) that I hate cats.

It happened that I had nothing to say yesterday. Couldn’t tell my stories the way I wanted to.

I submit to you a photo from my sister-in-law. Proof that it isn’t safe to leave animals, kids, and Christmas decorations unattended.

Don’t show your kids. They will get evil ideas.
