My birth month flower is a Narcissus

For some reason, I have a strange yearning for hot chocolate this morning. It may have something to do with The Gatekeeper's post, but I'm just not sure.

I am feeling fairly narcissistic this morning. By that I mean, I am proud of myself today. Yesterday, I discovered Scrapblog. I pink puffy heart that website! They have some of the cutest pre-made digital scrapbooking pages. It's fairly easy to use to boot so I'm into that. I designed myself a banner for my blog as I'm sure you've already seen. I am likely to change it again because that was just my first try. I figured since I'm distracted by bright and shiny things a lot that I would make the banner bright and shiny also. I think it might be too bright though. OR it could just be my occasional A.D.D. dictating that I should change it again just for fun.

Plus... I made two loaves of banana bread. I didn't burn them or the house down. I'm usually a pretty good baker. I'm not so good with cooking much other stuff though. However, after I pulled out all the ingredients I realized I didn't have any vegetable shortening i.e. Crisco. Crap, what am I gonna do? Why, call my mother of course. She says, "Do you have some mayonnaise?" Uh... mayonnaise? "Yea, I do." "Well, just use that.", she says. "Do I need to add more sugar or something?", I asked her. "Nope. Just use the same amount that the recipe says for the shortening." Uh, ok.... This is going to taste like a turkey sandwich, I thought, hold the turkey, add some bananas. Amazingly, no. It tastes like banana bread should taste, no mayo. I'll file that bit of info in the mental storage cabinet for future reference.

Also, this morning I have discovered how to add music to my blog. The song will likely change frequently because of the afore mentioned occasional A.D.D. The music I listen to changes with whatever I'm feeling that day. Some days I'd like to hear Glenn Miller's big band music and some days it's System of a Down. Thanks go to this blog for all the helpful information on how to actually add the music. I haven't had the time yet to check out the other info on that page, but it all looks useful. P.S. You can turn the music off by going to the bottom of my page.

Today I haven't done anything productive except wash some towels. I don't think I'll be doing much else either. Reasons include: antihistamines, lack of breathing ability through clogged up nasal passages, and just plain ol' laziness. The main factor here being laziness, but sshhh....don't tell anyone. I wouldn't want that to get out.

  1. Yummmm, banana bread. I'm going to try to make some zuchinni bread later today. Have you ever had any? It doesn't taste like zuchinni. (I don't know if I spelled that right.)
