Although we’ve had a few nights down around zero, it’s actually been pretty mild so far this winter (compared to the last two winters, anyway) – the biggest snow we’ve had was about five inches. This is historically more typical, but then we’re also not yet into February!
On the first ski trip of the season, Beth took a spill and dislocated her shoulder, which ended her skiing for the trip. She’s recovering (slowly) – prayers for her healing appreciated!
It didn’t take too long before the initial “pride of ownership” wore off, and now he’s into the “wrenching to keep it running” phase of owning an older car.

It’s been over three years since I first set up a WordPress blog for the PPF site, but I never actually started using it, thinking I would design my own blog template. Well, that actually almost happened, but I ran into some coding snags and finally decided here at the start of 2012 (ten years since our move to the Middle West), that maybe I should “fish or cut bait” and use a pre-designed theme and just go with it.
So, here it is.
While most of you don’t care about the technical mumbo-jumbo behind the scenes, what this means is that I can make quick updates to the site without having to hand-code everything. So maybe now I’ll post more often.
Aaaaand, here we go!
Having recently completed the coding for Chad’s Stembridge Mill site, I’ve picked up a good bit of WordPress knowledge and figured I might as well put it to use while its fresh. Not to mention, as I was doing my first update for 2011 on the Peachtree Prairie site, I found myself saying, “Why am I still hand coding all this stuff anyway?”
So, this post marks the first one with my in-progress updates to the WP code and styles. Hopefully I’ll get it all smoothed out shortly and can start posting without it being a big HTML ordeal anymore.
