Small website redesign. It might need a reload (to refresh a cached style sheet) if things look goofy. I changed the header area, switched fonts to a couple of Google open-source web fonts (Open Sans and Pacifico [for the title]), updated the archive page, and cleaned up a lot of behind-the-scenes code.

There’s a lot of code that’s still kind of a mess. And someday I really need to update the photos section. I’ll probably be tinkering around with the site a little for the next few days.

Also, while I’m posting about boring things, I changed the Corolla’s oil yesterday while we had some sun on the driveway, so noting the stats below for reference for the next one.

Mileage: 233,866
Oil: Castrol GTX High Mileage 10w-30, 3.5 qts
Filter: Fram PH4967 Extra Guard

Our first snow of the winter! Yup, been a dry year so far. Last year, February was our snowiest month, so maybe that’ll happen again. I almost miss it.

Here’s the view out back. And a window I’m in the process of installing in the old garage (needs trim still). It looks a little low from the outside because the interior floor is below grade.

Here’s our belated family Christmas card I guess. We took the all the dogs hiking in Waterworks Canyon on Christmas morning. Even hobbled-Taylor made it up the ridge with us (with some carrying and some pushing). Shorts weather on Christmas! I’ll add more photos when I get a chance (maybe next weekend).
