Please adjust your Blogrolls and any other links you have for me. Then come on over and see the new site!! I'll look forward to hearing what you think. It was designed by the wonderful Lilly at Happy Fun Blog.
1. I want to move over to my new MT blog on my own domain soon, but wonder about my blogroll. Do I have to start a totally new Blogrolling account and re-input all my favorite reads OR can I just change the URL on my existing Blogrolling account and insert the code on new blog. The thing I'm worried about is when all the people see my wonderful new blog and want to blogroll me (HA!!), will they be able to use the "Blogroll Me" link and end up with the correct link? Does that make any sense?
2. I seriously need help importing my Blogger archives to the new site. I've tried to follow the instructions provided by MT, but end up with blank entries instead of my archives. Any help would be appreciated.
Update: I've added a baby due date countdown to the About me sidebar (near the top) at the request of Suzy and with the advice of Zam. Yup, I'm 20 weeks this week. Halfway there!!!
Theo was a good old dog and I loved him. I will truly miss this dear old friend. Please spare a thought for the life of a fine dog and wish him Fare Well with me. *crying*
The bird feeders are starting to get lots of traffic. The first day a pair of purple finches were the biggest customers, but the last couple of days the sparrows have been flocking around. The finches are a lot more skittish and will fly off if some one walks by on the sidewalk. The sparrows are much more cheeky and don't let sidewalk traffic scare them. There always seem to be 5 - 10 of them around, either on the feeders or on the porch rail. They also seem to like the suet feeder, while I haven't seen the finches touch it. The thistle feeder has seen no takers yet. I'm hoping for goldfinches and wrens there. I've seen no cardinals or humming birds. Cardinals I know are here because I see them in the back yard all the time. I wonder if they like another kind of food better. No matter what I am very, very happy with my little sparrows and especially the finches. The male purple finches are all rosy right now, cuz it's mating season. Regarding the poop on the porch problem, I just figured I'd go out there and hose it off once a week or so. It's really not to bad right now after 5 days of being up, so maybe I'll only have to hose once every two weeks. I'll definitely have to sweep up the sunflower seed shells, though. A lot of the shells and poop drop down into the yard outside the porch and that's the dog's potty yard anyhow, so it's ok. Once we move upstairs, I'm moving all the feeders to the back yard, but for now, this is where I can watch the birds while I'm at my desk.
Ok, well, time to get out there and bring happiness and joy to the dogs of Minneapolis...Hope you all have a great day!
We also bought a garbage can with a tight lid to put all the bird seed in, so it's outside and nice and handy to fill the feeders. It made me happy, happy, happy to hang them up. Now I keep looking at them to see if I have any visitors. There have been none yet that I've actually seen, but this morning I went out there and there were some discarded sunflower seed shells underneath, so I know some birds have found it. I love to watch the birds. Any birds'll do. Sparrows, finches, wrens are all common and maybe even the cardinal that hangs around in the back yard will make his way to the front for some free food. Here's a pic of my set up. I'm so very pleased with it.
Snagged the link from The Sarcastic Journalist.
So the Rock Star has to think of another birthday gift for me. The brakes were fine! 80% left on the front, and 50% left on the back. No one knows why I heard that grinding brake sound. But I did get the oil change!
I forgot to mention that he also gave me a PowerBall ticket for my birthday and we won $31 million!!! OK, that's an April Fools...but wouldn't it have been tooooooo cool if we had won on a ticket my husband gave me as a birthday gift. Yeah!!!!
I'm in the mood to get lots of shit done today!! And I have lots of shit to do, too!! Wish me luck!! :)
