It’s Been A Long Few Weeks

These past few weeks have been long for me. I have slept most of the past 2 weeks. If you don’t know I have the photosensitivity side effect of Lupus. if I am in the sun it makes me tired enough to take very long naps. It’s usually the morning sun that gets to me. It hasn’t been this bad in almost a year. It was especially bad last week when I went out at around 7am to do laundry & got home around 10. I slept all day & that night & most of the next day. There is more to it then sleeping. I’m just glad I slept through most of the other parts of what happens when i’m in the sun.

This has made it so I can’t read & do book reviews. Today is the first day I haven’t been out in the sun for a few days so I am hoping I can stay awake today. I got up & decided to try to stay up. So far so good. I have 3 books on netgalley.com to read & review. I will get to that. I feel bad because I like to read books & review them. It is fun. I haven’t even been able to read fanfiction. Before you mention it – yes I was up enough to knit. I told Grace I would make her gloves for her work & I thought it was more important then reading. They where sent off to her yesterday. I also haven’t posted the FO post I said I would do every other month. If I can stay up today I will get that out too. I don’t think I have many things to show but I will keep that up.

If you really want to know how bad it is I haven’t been able to play WOW much. I log on & just fall asleep at my desk. This is the longest I have been up where I could fall asleep & not fallen asleep.

Mom: If you read this I am still going places with you in the morning. I don’t mind. The only time I venture out in public is when I go with you. Even if I just sit in the car while you do your stuff I still want to go. And we need to do laundry still – just maybe not when they open.

PATTERN UPDATE: Sundry Baby Blanket

Sundry Baby Blanket

After a few months of working on version 3 – this pattern has been updated! I don’t have everything I updated on this pattern but I do know a few things where missing & a few things where repeated. I have added the missing parts & removed the repeated parts. The updated PDf was over the limit you could upload to Ravelry so I broke it down to 6 parts. Each PDF starts with pdf#_ This lets you know in which order they go in. I hope this also helps with data usage – so you only have to download a smaller PDF for whatever part of the blanket you are working with instead of the whole PDF which is far larger. Eventually there will be a text only PDF – the only photo for that PDF will be of the pattern picture showing what the pattern is. Please go to you Ravelry Library & update or buy it now.

Server Transfer Done!

After nearly a week waiting for the previous domain registrar to release my domain and name server changes – crochetjessia.com has moved to a new web host. Things are still a bit out of place – mainly on the side bar. Slowly but surely images will be moved and may not work off and on. All things will be done as time goes on. Currently everything should work. If it does not please let me know by leaving a comment. Your comment may not show up right away – especially if you have never commented before Rest assured I will get it. My blog has also been incorporated into the main site for sure as I was talking about a few posts ago. It is just easier for me. That means there will be posts that you may not care about. I am thinking of putting the categories on the side bar so you can find posts you are interested in. As usual all patterns are on pages which are not posts and cannot be found through categories. If you have any suggestions as to what I can do to make the site better please leave a comment.

A New Look & Possible Server Moves

For a few weeks I have noticed that the site here would take up to a minute to load. That is not a good thing. I figured it was the javascript from the theme I was using. I found a temporary theme and adjusted the site as needed. I am not quite sure what sort of theme I want yet. I am looking through themes as I see them or I am shown them. I am not a fan of sidebars or sliders. I prefer the widgets to be on the bottom. I also like a full width or 3/4 width for the content. It will take time to find the perfect theme.

In other news. I am certain I will be switching hosts. I have found a host that has more storage for less then I pay at A Small orange. ASO is an excellent web hosting company and I would recommend them to anyone. Money is tight as always so if I find something better for cheaper then I will be using that service instead. I hope I have a theme found by the time I switch hosts or stay with ASO and renew for another year.
