Tuesday Tidbits

A little bit of this and a little bit of that....


Renovating

I've spent countless hours knee deep in html, lately, because my blog deperately needs a new look.  I have a test blog that I use so I don't have to shut this one down.  Ironically, it hasn't left me much time for new posts, so I guess it wouldn't matter if I closed up shop for a few days.  I'm nearly done, I have one glitch holding me up, but I'm going to try to figure that out this afternoon.  I hope to be unveiling my new look soon!


Recipes

A big thank you to those of you who answered my request for new recipes. I can't wait to try the fabulous ones I received.  However, even though my birthday is over, I'm still on the hunt for more new recipes to add to our upcoming Saturday night food and drink demos.  I'm especially interested in old family recipes and authentic ethnic dishes.  If you've got a great recipe and a don't mind sharing, I'd love to have it!  You can email them to thisstopwilloughby@yahoo.com.  If there is a story that goes along with the recipe, please let me know.


Hauntingly Beautiful

It was incredibly foggy this morning.  I couldn't help but notice how really pretty it was, though.  I snapped a few pictures from my back porch.



Aren't they haunting, yet beautiful?  I think so, anyway.


I Need To Get Out More

I opened the refrigerator this morning and noticed a really odd coincidence.  Both the gallon of white milk and the gallon of chocolate milk are at nearly the exact same level.  The only way I could have gotten them any closer would have been to measure the amount used.  Yeah, I need to get out more when I find that interesting!


No, the milk is not actually yellow.  Blame the combination of the refrigerator light and the flash on my camera.

I've missed you my friend. And I agree about the fog. I enjoy it too, especially when I'm home (don't like driving in it). Continued luck w/html. See you soon!

Want to know something...I found it interesting too! Maybe we're spending way to much time on the computer!

I admit it. I saw the milk picture and thought it was cool too! I won't spend too much time analyzing myself of that one. :)

I love those photos! They are dreamy...

And I probably would've taken a pic of the milk, too :)

Love the haunting pics!
I would have taken a pic of the milk too.

The pics are beautiful! However, they are "haunting" and could totally be the cover of a Stephen King novel. I'm just sayin'.

Holly said...

Cannot wait to see the new look...how exciting. Sorry, I forgot my recipe (craziness here!). My milk and chocolate milk are probably at the same level..empty because no one throws anything away in my house!

Pearl said...

My friend, I, too, found the levels of your milk jugs interesting.

:-)

Which reminds me: I need to get out. I'm thinking margaritas...

:-D

Wow, you do your own html and web designing--I am so impressed! I keep a 15 year old on retainer for my tech stuff :)

Thanks for stopping by at my place today. In the blogging world, 3 weeks is next to forever, so I'm grateful that anyone remembered me :)

And the milk? Really cool!

I just wanted to stop by and wish you a great Holiday weekend!
BTW. There are some awards waiting for you on my blog.
Grab them!

Hi Willoughby, I'm just back from Spring Break vacation and catching up on my reading.

Hats off to you for doing html! It scares me to much to even try! I'll be on the lookout for your makeover.

Great pics and kinda scary looking :-)

Hope your weekend is great! Happy Easter

Oooh! I love to look at the fog. I just don't like to drive in it.

Can't wait to see what your new look will be.

I love fog pictures. You captured that well. Thanks for not having any spooky music playing along with the pictures.
