Duh... I found a free image hosting site... I just wasn't searching for the right terms this morning, I guess. I found it shortly after this morning's post. So now, you should all be able to see my header graphic. Please let me know (either way)!
I feel a bit better today... I'm coughing a lot now, but it's not bad as long as I don't get too active. And -- even better -- the heat is supposed to break overnight! Yay! I know, it's only been two days, but that's two days too long for northern New England, as far as I'm concerned (it's 90 right now, with a heat index of 94). So between the cooler temperatures and the waning of the Killer Cold from hell, I should be back to (almost) normal and cooking within a couple of days! I'm still thinking about cornbread... =)
I finally found the help/support/FAQ section of my blog service this morning. It seems as though I cannot upload images to this site through them -- I have to find a "web server that allows picture linking," upload the pictures to that site, then insert them here. Can anyone help me find such a service? I have no idea what to look for. Apparently I will most likely have to pay for this... hopefully it won't be too much! If you know of a site that will allow me to do this, PLEASE hit the "make a comment" link at the end of this entry. Thanks!!
Until last Saturday, I had not had a cold in about two years. Apparently, this one thinks it needs to make up for lost time. I am sick. I have spent the past three days in bed, in varying states of consciousness, living on grape ginger ale, fruit, and fruit juice popsicles, watching Renee Zellweger movies (I highly recommend "Chicago" and "Down With Love!" "White Oleander" is also pretty good, for a book adaptation, but the book is better.). Finally, this afternoon, thanks to the modern miracle called "Robitussin (which happens to be, unfortunately, the foulest, most heinous-tasting substance on the planet!)," my head is a bit clearer, and I have plans to drag my sorry body back to work tomorrow.
On a brighter note, the digital gods smiled on me, and my digital camera came today! I can't wait to get out and see what it can do.
It's hot here today. We have had such a strange year so far -- almost no snow over the winter, lots of rain in the late winter, and cool, rainy weather most of this spring. Today, all of a sudden, it's about 80 degrees... something we haven't seen since last August. Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer, and the the rest of the week is supposed to be back to "normal," around 70 degrees. I look forward to that. Between my cold and this heat, I haven't felt much like moving today.
Soon -- I promise! -- this blog will get back on track, and will hopefully be a bit more colorful with the addition of some pictures from my new camera!
I've been craving cornbread lately, so that will probably be on the menu (and the site!) later this week -- as soon as it's cool enough again to bake. Maybe I'll put some raspberries in it... or maybe Craisins... hmmm...
...for not blogging much this weekend. As I said on Friday, it was a busy weekend for me, and it's gone downhill since then. I woke up yesterday with a sore throat, which turned into a pretty bad cold by the afternoon. That was all while I was working my "9 hours of overtime" day. By the time I got home (around 9) last night, all I wanted to do was go to bed.
Today, Kevin left to spend a few days in Boston. On my way home from dropping him off at the bus station, my clutch cable snapped. Happy, happy, joy, joy.
Needless to say, I don't feel much like writing. In fact, I am going to get into bed now! I promise I will get caught up, and actually write something about food, within a couple of days.
That's TV talk for "here's a little bit about what I'll write tomorrow, to tide you over 'til then."
It's a busy weekend for me -- I just got home from having a good dinner at a local brewpub, followed by a trip to see a long-anticipated movie. Tomorrow I have to work on my station's broadcast of the Children's Miracle Network Telethon -- 9 hours of OT in one day! That's on top of having worked a full day on Monday -- news takes no holidays. Sunday, I don't think I have to do anything or be anywhere I don't truly want to do or be. Doo-be-doo-be-doo.
Tomorrow I will tell you about my dinner that totally hit the spot, and I'll reveal which movie we saw (in case you haven't figured it out yet). Now, I have to get to bed -- I've been up for twenty hours! Good night. =)
