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!]
