A little bit wider now

Hey, what do you think of the new look? Thank you Linda, at Andirondack Country Gal (at least I think she'll rename it that), for giving me the tip. When I visited her blog, I had to ask how she got the page to be so wide. All that space! She told me the name of the template was Stretch Denim, so I edited my layout and chose Stretch Denim Light. Then I started playing with the colors, and got this nice little grey and purple thing goin' on. (I really like purple.)

I'm very grateful, because I was starting to feel all claustrophoby and junk. Now I feel like I've just eaten a really big meal, leaned back, and unzipped my pants. Ahhhh. Ha ha! I think the text wraps around pictures nicer, too, with this wider format.

Speaking of meals, we had a small problem at Nutwood this morning. Sheeba woke up from his morning nap and strolled over to grab a bite to eat. crunch crunch crunch Then, since it was nasty dry crap, he was thirsty. lap lap lap Then he walked around a moment, jumped up on the table, started making that yarking sound, leaned his head over the side of the table, and barfed down the basement stairs. It was impressive, on the verge of projectile. I cleaned off the stair railings and what got on the wall, and I'm letting the stuff on the carpet dry for a while. It's a lot easier to clean up. Poor little guy. He was no worse for the wear, though. A few minutes later, he went over and chowed down again! He kept that one down. He sat on my lap for a while, and is now curled up and sleeping on one of the chairs.

Someone sent me the link to this picture, and I thought it was quite clever and funny. I think most of us have, at one point or another, been subjected to flow charts. Either following them or creating them. Apparently, this debate prep chart was leaked. (Warning: A little bit of "language," but nothing too severe.)


  1. Yeah, I know the feeling! I had an option to use a wicked cool template someone gave me the html to...but I kind of like the freedom of being able to say more, without feeling claustrophobic. Loved the chart, you know how I feel about Palin reverting to hockey mom knows it all status. (Hugs)Indigo

  2. I'm still digging around for a new template that will actually make me happy.

  3. While I don't think it was me who told you I used the stretch denim, thanks anyhow! Heehee!

  4. I like the new set up! Poor Sheeba! I hope he's feeling much better by now.

  5. I like your new look. I'm sorry for you kitty. I don't like your flow chart. lol
    Hugs, Joyce

  6. I like your new template. I am going to have to play around with things, too. Sorry about the barf. I had two cats. I used to clean a lot of kitty barf. Now that they have gone to kitty heaven, my dog misses the kitty almond rocca, if you know what I mean ; )

  7. I love your new is much wider.

    You did a wonderful job! I'm so happy we will all be in the same place together. I'm anxious for the migration part.

    Hugs, Rose

  8. oh I love it.. I'm wondering what it will do to my current set up but I'm going to have try I like the wide :)
    Palin? pffffttttt

  9. Just thought I would comment with so9meone who agrrees with me. Not very nice and may get reported to AOL. Big deal to a 78 year old woman.

  10. Lookin' good lady! Love the flowchart. teehee

  11. Very spacious, and I heard somewhere that purple is the new black!
    Yarking? Is that a regional word? Poor Sheeba, it's amazing how quickly they can hack it up and go back for more. Ewww.
    No wonder, with a flow chart like that, she couldn't miss! Hehe

  12. cat barf! Yuck!
    i have too much stuff on my sidebar to do the denim stretch. X0

  13. I love your big new blog!! Cats are funny... sometimes the gobble like there's no tomorrow and make themselves sick, but as soon as they hack it up they're fine again! I hope the little baby is okay!

  14. Ick, I hate when the cats yack something up. And the noises they make just before it happens are awful as well. My mom's cat makes this awful yowling sound that goes on even while the yacking is happening. Meo-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow I guess I can't get too annoyed with all the noise... I'm way louder when I'm yacking. Only I'm usually saying oh god oh god just kill me oh god. Yes, me=big baby. ;)

    Lookin good! I think the chart was a hoot!I hope your kitty cat get's to feeling better.I wish you and Ken a great weekend!


  16. The layout is looking great. you'll find yourself tweaking it for quite some time. I still rearrange things from time to time.

    It's fun to be able to customize so easily


  17. Love the new layout!! OMG...the Palin flow chart is hilarious!!!
    Poor Sheba...maybe she just wanted some lovin'...
