Jammie Day

Today I have not yet gotten out of my pajamas and it’s already lunch time. Do people stop having jammie days? I hope not. Sometimes it’s just what you need. In fact, I wish I had a couple more days off. I could use a second jammie day and then maybe a day to actually get some stuff done. I really haven’t felt like I have had time to myself in a long long time. It’s partly my fault. Whenever I had a day off I tend to spend it with my boyfriend instead of taking the day for myself. It’s also partly my work schedule. Most of the time I will only have one day off when in reality you really need to have two days in order to get everything done. I also think the fact that my schedule jumps around a lot causes me to lack a routine. I would be more productive if I just worked the same hours every day. But such is the life I have chosen for now.

Anyway, my day hasn’t been uneventful. I woke up at 5am (!) because my door slammed shut thanks to the wind. I wasn’t really sure what the loud sound was so I got out of bed to see if anything fell or got broken. When I looked outside I saw the sun starting to come up and grabbed my camera. It was kind of funny because just yesterday I commented on Angelica‘s blog about how the sun comes up too early for me to take any pictures of it right now. I went back to bed but never actually went back to sleep. I wanted to get up and get started on my day. Yesterday I decided to move my websites to a new host. I noticed last night that the Nerd Listings was done but I didn’t have time to fix it so I really wanted to get up and fix that asap. It took a lot longer than I had planned, but that’s alright. It’s all up and working great now. And I even set up a Twitter account so people can get updated about new sites when they are added.

I also plan on moving this website to the new listing, but I am having issues with my current host. I have contacted her a few times now but she never responds. I sent her an email yesterday where all she has to do is confirm that my domain can be transferred to new host but still I hear nothing. I understand that she has a lot going on in her life right now, but how hard is it to just click on a link and be done with it? Has anyone ever had to deal with something like this before? Any suggestions on what I can do to get my domain transferred to my new hosting? For those of you thinking about getting a domain, I would suggest registering it yourself and then just finding someone to host it for you. That would have made things a LOT easier for me. My domain expires in August. Any idea what happens when it expires? Will I be able to buy it before anyone else tries to? I hope so. Otherwise I’m going to have to start thinking of a new name for my blog.

New Layout

Owl Dot-to-Dot Layout

With starting over on my blog, I wanted to make a new layout. I have a dot-to-dot book with pictures that have numbers over 1000. This owl was in the book with numbers over 500. I connected the dots with a pen, scanned the picture to my computer, then traced the lines using Paint Shop Pro’s pen tool. I then colored in the sections on the computer to create the header image.

This is the first time I’ve used custom fonts. I downloaded them from 1001 Free Fonts. I used one called Attract More Women and Aenigma Scrawl. I really like the font that I used for the blog posts but I worry that it will be too hard for people to read. How is it for you?

The next thing I want to work on is getting some of my pages back up and re-posting the recipes that I really like. I miss not having my recipes right at my fingertips wherever I am. Was there any content that you would like to see me put back on if possible?

Have you have any comments or criticisms about the new layout please let me know. If you know how to fix something you don’t like, an explanation on how to fix it would be nice to follow up with your criticism.
