From the iPad of K. Garrod, take 2

Aha! I only had to switch from “Visual” to “HTML”.

That’s much better.

My apologies for the typos in the prior post. (Which was invisible to me as I typed, I swear!)

And please understand I am exercising extreme willpower in not returning to said post to correct it. Call me out if you ever find I’ve edited it. Please.

From the iPad of K. Garrod

The following is a break from my regularly scheduled programming. It’s a test. To see if I can blog from my iPad. Which apparently is true … Bexcept for the fact that I can’t see what I’m typing right now …

I mean, the cursor is moving. And the auto-correct appears occasionally — like for that word, which I consistently misspell, despite my degree in English.

Well, this should be interesting. At least to me. Hello? Anyone?


Hope to figure out how to fix this for future posts. It’s funny today, but it won’t always funny I don’t think. So much for that cool editing tool. THIS is scary.

Until next time …. When I return you to your regular programming.
Take care!

Loving the new changes

Hi all!

I’ve moved. No, no … my family and I are still safely tucked into our corner of the Midwest. But I’ve found myself dreaming more and more of WordPress Land, and I’ve finally taken the plunge. Thanks for seeing me through this change (It’s scary!) and thanks also for your patience as I explore and reorganize my new blog during the small chunks of time I find.

I’m hoping to utilize all the fun tricks I was missing (or simply couldn’t locate) at my old blogging-grounds. Like that cool, look! I’m editing as I type this one. Yes. That felt good.

Here’s a tease for all the folks who realize my last post was written the day before I gave birth to our second little girl. Madalyn Kay arrived on November 26, 2010, at 10:20 p.m., 8 lbs, 8 oz. and 21 inches long.


Maddy Kay's serious face (2 1/2 months old)


I suppose I would wear a similar expression if my mama dared to leave me in this position just to grab a few cheap pictures. But seriously, can there be anything cuter than a naked baby?? Laying on top of a handwoven blanket from my lovely and talented aunt in California? (Thank you; thank you!)

Even if her head looms larger than life?

And, since I hear some children stirring from their always-treasured naptimes (I always treasure them; not sure whether they do), I’ll leave you with this one:


Ava and Maddy Kay, playing with penguins (A: ~ 2 1/2 yrs, M: 2 1/2 mos)

Maybe next time I’ll remember to remove the red-eye before posting.

In short, I’m loving the move to WordPress. And more importantly, I’m loving being the mother of two. Adorable. Girls. (except when all three of us are having meltdowns, but that’s another topic entirely…)

Happy reading! See you soon!
