Tomorrow I am going to take a blog day off. It snowed a few more inches in the night and I can go nowhere anyway so I am going take the chance to spruce the look of The Kitchen’s Garden blog up a bit.
Up my game if you will. I think we all deserve some new curtains. You and I have been working hard all winter!
I am going to attempt to load a new theme, new backgrounds and layout, and clean up the widgets, the result will encourage me to take better more thoughtful images. Everyone needs a challenge. I hope it is a smooth transition and that you like it. Many of you are reading on your phones and tablets now and I have been wanting to have pages that can be viewed and read easily by these tiny devices. Though it will be framed with a little more jazz, in a crisper more image friendly format, basically everything will be as usual in our own very unusual way.
But still the same old blog, after all it is all about the animals, the food and living a simple invigorating life full of thought. The blog is just my way of documenting the life we choose to lead. Having you along for the ride means that my learning curve is well supported with trusses and good wide straps.
The calenders are being printed. They are big and glossy and gorgeous and will cost 19.00 each to print. I have ordered 10 to begin. In my blog page overhaul I shall add a paypal button (I am not sure how to do this yet either but google is a marvellous thing) and then when they arrive you can order one, paying through paypal, plus postage and add on whatever you would like to donate for Sheila’s feed and new summer housing. I think that will be best. I will order more when I have the numbers. Next I shall look about for the cheapest way to print really good ‘Sheila the Sassy’ T-shirts for us all. We want American cotton. Any ideas?
On the second walk she had to be discouraged gently from bringing her bowl with her. Just in case I might want to feed her somewhere along the way I suppose.
The glasshouse, which I should really call the Glass Room, is all enclosed. John’s work has been put off a few days due to the latest storm and ‘bitterly’ cold weather. So we may be able to move some plants in there soon. Which is just as well as Marcel has taken a liking to my big pot of thyme.
Good morning, off I go to work on our surprise, updating the look of the blog. If I make a serious error we will have to go back to smoke signals and pigeons.
Your friend on the farmy
