One of the little known things that small bloggers face, is what goes on behind the curtain.
Last week, I dusted off my camera and flexed my fingers for the first time in months
to begin again my daily (or every other day) ritual of sharing my thoughts and musings
with friends near and far in the online community.
The next day when I sat down at my computer to flex my fingers and write,
I noticed a myriad of updates were needed for the theme, framework, and plug-in sections of this website.
And so began my adventures into code.
Updating, saving, and reformatting sidebar widths.
Spell checking the foreign language of raw wordpress code.
May I please have a Coffee, some cookies, some Mountain Dew, and a jar of Nutella with a spoon?
It was like unpacking the first kitchen box during a move.
One down, with 16 to go. How long is this going to take?
This is how I felt.
So. After a few days with way too many hours spent in front of my computer looking at code
and a few wonderful friends like Annie of MamaDweeb.com (she rocks my socks by the way!)
who answer late night calls for help, I think things are finally up to date and organized.
My newest endeavor in the past few months, has been learning how to make my own cold process soap.
It’s a long story, (coming to a blog near you!), but the short of the long is this:
I’ve learned to make soap,
I’ve discovered I LOVE making soap,
I’ve had a ton of fun creating new flavors with dried herbs from my garden,
AND – drumroll please – I recently opened an etsy shop called the Yellow Rose Emporia!
So how are things going with your family this week?
Have you tackled something big recently?
Let’s catch up and encourage one another!
