Ok, this has been functional for a time now, but I just finally figured out how to get it. If you want to use the Cool Looks on my blog, you need to use this URL: http://ginnyslowcarbkitchen.blogspot.com/view/sidebar
click on it and see what you get! It's pretty cool. You get a whole different view of everything on my blog.
You can choose from several different views by clicking one of them on the upper left side: Classic, Flipcard, Magazine, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot, and Timeslide. Check them out! I love it! I was messing around with it on Jennifer's blog and found that I could use it on my own as well. Thanks Jen for explaining it! I'm a bit late in announcing it, but better late than never, huh?
I just had a wonderful week celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary with my best friend, lover, and soul mate. I think in these days that is something to celebrate! This man is God's gift to me and evidence of His love and grace in my life. We had a great week together, without spending a lot of money (we're cheap--or frugal we like to say), and enjoyed that our anniversary this year coincided with a week off from work. I work for the public school and it was MEA week here. The rest of the district gets 2 days, but in ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education), we get the whole week. What a beautiful time of year to do it and to have an anniversary, even though the colors this year are a bit pathetic in our area. The wind has blown most of them away. Nevertheless, it was a great week. I'll be back to cooking once again, after a week of trying to stay low carb and gluten free in restaurants. I managed pretty well I'd say. I also brought my own food along to help. So here are a few pics of our week. These are all at Frontinac State Park, Lake Pepin. Click on the picture for a larger view.
