Lloyd helped me fix my website display problems! Yay! Thank you, Lloyd!
It meant changing to a new theme – that is, a new style of display for everything. I started using this last theme back in 2013. I couldn’t make my old banner work for the new theme, but that was okay. It was probably time to change it. I looked for something abstract, but decided to go with a picture. I like it, because it’s trees and I like gardening, so it works.
My TV is kind of old, so it only has two HDMI outlets. For a long time, it was just my cable box and my Xbox, but then I got a Roku. I didn’t want to always be fumbling around the back of the TV when I wanted to switch from cable to Xbox, so I got an HDMI splitter. It was super easy to put in, and it will be very easy to switch between sources. There’s even a light to show you which line is active!
I used the opportunity to switch to my Xbox and start a new game. I’m going to try playing The Witcher. It’s an old game now, but it’s just the kind of game I like – open world, main quest with side quests, swords and magic. Perfect! I only played for a little while last night. The tutorials took a lot of concentration.
Sorry the pictures are still weird and the comments are still unreadable. I’ll get it figured out. In the meantime, I can see the comments by signing in and going to the Bradaptation website control center.
I went to the grocery store yesterday, and decided to walk down the “frozen foods” aisle. I was surprised to see that I could buy big soft pretzels! The box looked just like the logo of the big pretzels I used to get for choir fundraiser lunches back at my school in Baltimore. I had to get some! And for the cheese? I got Velveeta. I could melt it into cheese sauce. Mmm…
I also got a bundle of asparagus. I love salty buttery asparagus!
The asparagus didn’t disappoint, but the pretzel… did. It was soft and wrinkly, like a freshly baked bready pretzel. Yuck. I wanted it to be hard and dense, and not bread-like at all. And Velveeta for cheese sauce? Way too intense of a flavor. It was so… buttery… I want the pretzel to be kind of like carboard, and the cheese sauce to be hydrogenated oil with a little flavoring. Is that too much to ask?
NOTE: The site is having some technical difficulties. I did an update, and now the pictures look wonky, and comments aren’t visible. I’ve contacted my tech guy. Thanks, Lloyd! 🙂
On Friday as I was going home from school, I stopped at Home Depot to walk through the garden center. There wasn’t much new to see. I stop there too often. But on my way out the door, I saw that the plant delivery truck was there. How exciting! New plants! I tried to look nonchalant as I walked past, peering into the truck to see what was there.
I saw zinnias! I have been looking for zinnias! I got a tired, beaten up zinnia from Walmart a few weeks ago, but it’s been struggling. I wanted some healthy yellow zinnias. Were there yellow zinnias on the truck? I couldn’t tell… it was too dark in there.
I wondered if I should just sit in the parking lot until the plants got unloaded. That wouldn’t be weird, would it? Yes… yes, that would be weird. I went home. But I couldn’t stop thinking about them.
So I went back. And I found yellow zinnias! Yay!
I also got an impulse buy of a vinca. It’s a variety called tattoo papaya.
I also got a fiber liner for my hanging basket, so the fuchsia is off the floor and hanging properly now.
