As some of you know, I’ve been battling the cold from hell lately. I’m still not any better.
Well let me rephrase that, my MIND is more clear yet my body is still falling apart. Thankfully Keith has been taking care of EVERYTHING so that all I have to do is lay in bed and breastfeed Tristan whenever he’s hungry.
So I figure I will do a basic catching up post for the time being. I know I’ve missed out on over 300 blog posts from everyone so if you’ve blogged recently and really want me to take a look, share the URL please!
I completely redid the forum including the theme and the backend script. I switched from BBPress to SMF. If you were a previous member of the forum (previously named Nocturnal) you are moved over however due to the new script and such, you may need to reset your password. I am open to any suggestions on how to improve the [forum] and would appreciate new members, activity, and such!
I also posted on the forum about how to fix an issue for those using a Thesis 1.7 framework for WordPress. Granted I personally don’t use it but since a friend of mine, Liz, was having issues with her comment fields not populating from the commenter cookie, I had to fix it! So check out Fix AutoFill Comments in Thesis 1.7 for the solution!
My best friend Mary set up a Facebook Fan Page for my photography! It was SUCH a shock and an awesome surprise for me! I would have never done it for myself.
Remember that I also have a section, Question & Answer, where you may ask me anything, even anonymously!
The strawberries are starting to ripen and I have a wee tiny tomato growing so far. The basil is almost all dead so I need to get some new plants, maybe keep them indoors in the kitchen. My cilantro is crazy awesome. I cut it down almost to the base when I need it for dinner and within 2-4 days it’s like I never touched it!
With the basil, we think the issue may have been TOO much water as there was a part of the gutter (that Keith fixed) that was right over the basil section and with all the rain lately, I wouldn’t be surprised.
In my area, we’re having an issue with what appears to be flying soybean aphids. I don’t see them doing any damage to my garden however there is a LOT of them flying around and it’s just irritating. Makes being outdoors an unhappy experience. If anyone has any suggestions on how to tame them, lessen their numbers, or make them go away completely, I would appreciate it.
Daniel is doing fabulous lately. He and Keith go bike riding frequently together for what Danny calls “Daddy Time”. I know Keith is on the lookout for a bike rack for the car so he and Daniel can go riding at the forest preserve instead of just around the neighborhood area. Hard to figure out what will work for the vehicle (Scion xA) and what is affordable.
Tristan got his two top teeth with more on the horizon! He also is hardcore crawling now. His new love are lightsabers. Thankfully his big brother has a ton of them and doesn’t mind sharing!
Here are all the recent photos from my iPhone!
I think it’s about it really. I am trying to have high hopes that I start to get better so I can be productive again. I have so many unanswered emails right now and this is the first day really that I have enough mental capacity to form a post!
