Long late winter day. Squirty snow all afternoon and the damp invaded everything. Lots of things are calling for attention. As usual! For quite awhile, I have been getting ready to move our regular website to a new webhost service. I have stayed with our local small outfit for the past 10 years because I like to support small, local business. And honestly, once the website was up and running there, it was going to be a lot of trouble to move it. Recently this small provider was sold to a very large corporation, and I knew I needed to begin the process of getting our website moved, in the process saving quite a bit of money, which is always a good thing. I chose another provider, and now have to get the darn thing there. Complications, always complications!
I have been trying to keep the website updated, and hope it is for the moment. But the question is, do I want to transform it into something a little more “modern?” Maybe use a WordPress.org theme (templates of which I perused for half the day today)? Oh my, that requires learning to interact with .PHP coding. Aargh! Maybe I will leave that one for later! Or update to a slightly niftier CSS design? Sigh. For now, I guess I will just get our very simple site transferred. Decisions, decisions.
In the meantime, I had some leftover roast chicken, and today was the perfect day to make it into a nice pot pie. I used a piece of the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe for the supreme sauce and the handling of the actual baking of the pie (I have never put an egg wash on a pot pie crust, but I really like the way it turned out). And as it was, I ended up with more filling than would fit into the Pyrex deep dish pan. But it came out beautifully, and was just the ticket for a damp winter evening!
And even better, a friend of mine just clued me in to the fact that next weekend begins Daylight Savings time! Woot! Woot! That definitely puts a smile on my face :*)
