wanna-be a web designer…. ;)

I’m having so much fun learning how to build my very own theme for wordpress blogs that the time is running too fast. If I intend to get out of bed in the morning tomorrow (rather: today!) then it’s better for me to walk away from the screen right about now. But I don’t want to!

If you, like me, are keen on learning a bit more about coding and making – or tweaking – a wordpress theme, there is help to be found. Right now I’m at Small Potato’s place – WPdesign – following his tutorials on how to make wordpress themes. So far, so good! Maybe I finally can make my very own lime-look and not only tweak the themes a little (or a lot!), like the current one?! Wish me luck!

Maybe one of these could be a good start for lime’s next theme:

friend over for coffee

My plan was to write a long post today about our Christmas so far, but it’ll happen later, right now I’m running around like a madman trying to get this house looking more more like a home than a disaster area. I’m not sure if I’m getting there, but at least my living room table now have a cloth on!

Jumping in the paper

Yesterday I bought a tripod for my camera, hopefully I’m able to try it out today :) A friend of mine is coming over with her two sons oat 1 and 3 years. We haven’t seen each other for a couple of years, give or take, so it’ll be fun. Hopefully the boys will find each other as well!

Sadly the snow is melting, hopefully the mild weather will go south and leaving us with a few grades chill in the air so we can keep our snow, but not freeze to death.

By the way, does anyone know where I placed the top plate for my coffee maker? It’s blue…… 

The birth of Jesus


Luke 2:1-14

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
The Shepherds and the Angels
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”

a busy time of the year….

It’s a busy time of the year, but I try to enjoy it as well and not run around like a crazy person ;)

This is my to-do-list of today, it’ll have to be done before we leave for service at around 2 pm. So I better get some food and some coffee to get me off on a good start…

  •  write the last Christmas cards and possibly post them
  • wrap up the remaining Christmas presents
  • figure out what to get to my friends two children – oh, yea, I’m late!
  • write the prayer for tomorrow’s service
  • find clothes for today, tomorrow and second day of Christmas for the both of us!
  • take a shower
  • - and put MT into it one as well :D

Hopefully that’ll be all!


I have - finally - broad band at home! Now this house feels like mine ;) For a while there I thought I wasn’t up to set it up by my self, but then I discovered that I had the cables all mixed up. Blah! Good thing I didn’t call support…. That would have been embarrassing.

funny guy

I might not use it every day, but it sure feels good to be able to if I have something to search for, read or comment. This past two months without internet have sure made that clear! I’ve been frustrated more than once, to tell the truth..but not any more!

LOL; I’ll make a longer post another time. Now I’m just happy!
