I realized yesterday afternoon that some of my LJ posts are really long, and that by not using the “cut” feature, I’ve probably been really rude to my friends – sorry about that!
I got bitten by the bug to finally do something, anything, to my website. I wrote up some stuff on a couple of sheets of paper, and I’ve been surfing the net looking for page templates, though I’ll probably come up with something on my own, as usual. It’s been an interesting redo, that’s for sure! But I’m not telling what I’m doing – not yet. :buwahahahaha:
Am also wanting to do something to the Gwyddon site, but what I have no idea yet. There’s just a ton of information there, and it’s all just kinda lying around – no real order or cohesion. I’ve wanted to redo that site for a couple of years now – but how is totally escaping me. Eh, it’ll eventually come to me. I hope.
Preston and I had a great weekend; we didn’t do crap. Usually we play cards or some kind of board game – or poke around one of the shopping centers, or gods forbid go to one of the malls – but this time we just kicked back on the sofa, read and watched movies. It was great. I didn’t even have to yell at him for aggravating me – which was great for my nerves and my blood pressure. lol
We traded Valentines at midnight Friday. We couldn’t wait! Preston’s was great – it made me cry. The one I got him was similar to what we printed on our wedding invitations, only instead of “my lover, my friend”, it said, “my husband, my friend”. At least we didn’t get each other the same Valentine like we did last year. That was just … scary. 😉 I made him watch the Peanuts Valentine special on ABC Saturday night, then we watched Grosse Pointe Blank because it was appropriately fitting.
I made a pineapple upside-down cake Saturday; I’d just got to missing my grandmother and the cakes she’d make me on my birthday, and we’d not had a pineapple upside-down in four years. Of course, I had to make it in an iron skillet just like she did, and I was scared to death. Preston and I scored major points for actually flipping the finished cake over into a dinner plate – anything that takes team effort really is an effort for us. rofl But I’m proud of myself. That cake was perfect and delicious! I should have taken a picture! LOL “Mari Proudly Shows off her Cake!” (or maybe not)
Preston forgot to buy me a birthday card. LMAO So, when we went out to have dinner last night, we ran to WalMart – where I busied myself in the pet aisle while he picked me out a card. It had Snoopy on it, so he scored Big Points. 😀
Very, very good weekend – even if it didn’t snow.
