images and such…

hello!  i’m so excited to show you my new Bilby (see fun details in post below)… but alas, i cannot upload the image.  any suggestions?  perhaps an impaired rain-techy-savvy issue? a design issue? a wordpress issue? a system wide issue? …or should i just tell you how fun it is to look at and let you use your vivid imaginations…?  ah, yes!  that’s the ticket!


will gladly post about my Chicago trip later in the day… currently working on finishing a scarf (which i’ll show you after i figure out the whole picture thing) and making the shopping list for Thanksgiving holiday…  goodness, the weekend is almost over…yet it feels it has just begun!

a W.I.S.E. parcel…

hello everyone!  i just got home from Chicago and found my bundle of mail inside the door… and was thrilled to see a lumpy package.  I was equally thrilled to see it was from Australia… and it had a familiar name on the return address… ah!  my WISE gift had arrived!  Wonderful!

So, I was exhausted (near midnight) after traveling for the past six 1/2 hours… but was so excited to open the package… and… well, let’s take a look!  This is what Semele wrote recently:

Much like Ian, I went with an Australian theme. Unlike Ian, I neglected to include a Christmas card so sorry to my WISE recipient for that lapse in judgment (

No worries about the Christmas card – a beautiful little box arrived with a delightful little Bilby inside (see here for what a bilby is: it’s native to Australia and it seems is near extinction because its habitat has changed so much within the last century…) luckily i now have a handcrafted ornament for my tree to forever honor the little rugrat :)

and thank you for the yummy delicious Australian chocolate – I’ll save it for an extra special moment… it’s not every day I get Australian chocolate personally imported by a wiblike friend from far away shores :)

whooo-hoo!  thank you!  and an early very merry Christmas!


[edit: ok, what am i doing wrong?  i went to ‘add media’ and selected ‘image’ then did ‘browse’ to select picture… and then save/add to post, then when i published it there was no picture!  help!!!!!]

[edit: so i logged out of Firefox browser, logged back in under Internet Explorer… let’s see if this will work]

[edit: what am i doing wrong?  tried to ‘browse’ through the Flash program, then tried to do it through the Browser Uploader option… i wanna show you the Bilby!  it’s adorable!!!!!!!]

[edit: so i tried ‘media’ instead, and the same error occurred… gah!  one day this will be figured out0

[edit: so now i’ve switched the theme to see if it was, indeed, a design/theme issue… let’s see how this goes – nope, that doesn’t fix it either… grah!]
