The Friday Five

This week was filled with news, some good, some not so good. Five new things that happened this week:

1. I found some new software for creating blog templates and webpages. I just love new toys so I downloaded the trial software and played.

2. I bought the software and played for real

3. I gave my blog a make-over

4. The Young One invited me to play a new game with her on Facebook. Fishville. This morning, a whole bunch of my fish, which were perfectly fine last night before I shutdown and said they didn't need to be fed for 20 hrs, were floating belly up when I looked in on them this morning while having my first cup of tea. I'm a very poor fish farmer though it was nice to be asked to play.

5. The Eldest received news she was granted a fellowship to go on a trip to Rome in the Spring with her school. The fellowship will cover half of the cost of the trip. She'll just have to come up with money for meals, spending, and some new wardrobe items.

What's new with you this week?


  1. Love the new blog look! And I really like seeing your profile picture! You seem more real now! Isn't that interesting how a picture can do that! Have a great weekend!

  2. Love the picture!

    It's sure been a wild week, hasn't it?

    Yay for the Eldest's great news, and a moment of silence for your floaters. :D

  3. So much news for one week, poor fish.

    Love the fun new look on your blog!

    And love seeing your picture!!

  4. I like your week far better!
