Hopefully I won't inadvertently click on the little "x" and close this post - I've done that twice recently (I have too many tabs open in Chrome!.)

Last week I spent a lot of time learning more about Joomla and templates. I've come a long way on CSS and HTML - Firebug in Firefox is wonderful! I bought the Joomlashine developer pack where I get all of their templates and I've learned a lot by studying many them. I'm using JSN Solid for this website now and really like the way it's working. I had to add the code to get Multicats to display the categories but I now understand how to do it. It's amazing how comfortable I've become using Joomla - it's an amazing program!

Richard has added two trellises to the deck and changed the entrance location and it looks really good. He found some large containers at Sam's and got some evergreens to put in them so we don't have to see the Parkway anymore - it's really nice. He also planted some ivy and another boxwood in the area in front of the top deck. The backyard is really nice now and it's a pleasure to sit out there - it's beginning to be very private.

Joey is growing and growing and is such a joy! His house-training is going slowly - it depends on me catching him at the right time. Early this morning he figured out how to move the gate and ran upstairs - he scared Richard to death when he couldn't find him!

We went to Will's James River Singers concert last night at River Road Church - he is so good!

Will and I went to the Good Feet store yesterday - unfortunately they aren't working for me - they make my feet hurt so I'm going to return them next week.

It's almost dinner time - we're going to have Polish sausage and spinach. Richard has been working outside all day so I'm sure he's exhausted.


We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
