Next leg of the journey

In November I’m looking forward to:

  1. New bible study series starting Monday
  2. A visit with my dad to hear his story about July 4, 1754. That’s all he would tell me over the phone but it has to be something about our family history.
  3. Shopping Extravaganza at my church where I’ll be selling some of my handcrafted goods.
  4. My daughter and son-in-law coming in for Thanksgiving. We’ll be shopping for the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) kids. One of our favorite shopping sprees.
  5. Thanksgiving

My October journeys were fun. Visit with my daughter included laughter, good food (son-in-law is a great cook) and scenic drives. The weekend beach cabin trip with friends, because of the remnants of a hurricane that dumped rain on the Gulf coast and closed the coastal road, turned out to be a trip to Natchitoches, LA for some shopping, eating, and sight-seeing as well as good times. Both of these weekend trips included a bit of fall color. Then the visit to the International Quilt Festival in Houston this past week was wonderful but just not long enough to see everything. Next year I hope to take a whole group of ladies and take a couple of days.

What are you looking forward to?

Blogging 201: Days 2 and 3

I have updated my theme to LoveCraft which is a responsive theme. The theme is supposed to have a sidebar but all the widgets show up at the bottom of the page. Nothing I have tried replaces it. On the individual post pages it’s where it’s supposed to be and sometimes it shows up in the right place. Don’t know whether it’s my laptop or wordpress.

Also, I need feedback. The newer posts are using the free fonts provided. The older ones use a font I have on my computer that I copy and paste into the blog draft. (I use it in Windows Live Writer but it won’t let me post since I changed to Windows 10. That’s why I copy and paste.) If you click on Home at the top it will have them all in a column.

So, viewers, what do you see when you visit my page?
