Thus far this day has not lived up to expectations. For instance, I was up until 3 a.m. trying to repair the layout of my blog. Yesterday, Typepad made some "improvements," which supposedly didn't affect individual blogs. However, my blog's content was suddenly shoved beneath the left sidebar and despite my best efforts, would not budge. Even worse, all my saved templates were corrupted and the solution Typepad suggested didn't work. So I've spent nearly three hours this morning trying to get one template into a reasonable facsimilie of the design and content I prefer. The talented guy who helps me with web design is currently on holiday in Thailand. For the moment, it appears I'm stuck with this look. Update 6 p.m. - The blog design has reverted to yesterday's design, even though my template says I'm using the one created this morning as a temporary "fix!" Oops! 6:10 p.m. and it's back to the temporary fix. I give up trying to figure out what's happening.
Also, while hanging some tiny milagros to my wall of crosses and religious icons, I hammered my finger, which wasn't pleasant. One milagro became embedded in the backing of an antique Spanish mirror and I had to remove the splintered wooden back to retrieve it. You wouldn't believe the gigantic antique dust bunnies lurking inside! My husband asked if I'd put them on eBay, considering their advanced age.
I burned the chorizo quesadilla I was making for lunch, to the point it was inedible. I dropped a bottle of prescription cough syrup, shattering it all over the kitchen floor. And the computer company with which I am currently embroiled in a claim has blacklisted my email as spam, forcing me to fax all correspondence. But that's another post. You get the picture: the day has been one small disaster after another. I probably should have stayed in bed!
To cheer myself up, I'm going for a bike ride or walk. I'll be back later to post photos of some of the brocante treasures that came home with me. Hope your Wednesday is a big improvement over mine!
