Excuses, excuses

Update: As you can see I did get the header done. Changed font colors for Fall too. (plus hey, I finally gave myself some "elbow room" around here) Enjoy the changes. Hopefully you will feel more like hanging out and putting your feet up on the coffee table (go ahead, it's ok)

Original Post:
I am working on a new "Fall Seasonal" Header for my lovely Just Jules blog (Let's all just pretend we think this blog is lovely)

It is taking me a bit more time then I was planning.

Excuses-
(I will keep this short)

#1- I got sick. Full out, lay me down, dead to the world sick. The flu- NO, not the swine flu - just the flu. Aches, chills, fever, sweats, headache, sore throat, kill me now misery - the flu.

#2- Hubby was goofing around working on the computer for most of the afternoon and evening.

#3 - It started pouring rain when I drug my not fully recovered self out to snap some pics for said header. (what I won't do for you people!)

#4 - I suck! Time we just admitted it. I suck and let you all down. Sorry, unfollow now. I will close my eyes. It is fine.

To try to kiss butt make up for this injustice I did post a few of the pics I took (in the rain, while sick, just because I care that much.)










That is it.
The End.
No more excuses.

I will be working on this project today (Monday).
Look for it soon or more excuses to follow.

Get well soon.

Your priorities are clearly in order. Blogging friends first, self after. I may need to send you my own personal martyr kit although you can make your own: get two strips of velcro and place one on the back of your hand between knuckles and wrist, the other on your forehead. Place hand on forehead until the two velcros stick. Lean head back and sigh heavily.

Now get up and make that header (oh...and could you make one for me too while you're at it?)

:-)

you just concentrate on getting better yes??
can't wait to see the new header, by the way i'v been meaning to tell you how much i love this one ever since you first changed it and keep forgetting.
take care :)

Just Jules said...

Yes FM- I could use that kit, seems I could use it often ;)

It is a cold, dreary, rainy day here so I think that is the perfect solution for today

I'm with VL; fall's great, when it's not raining. But your summer-y header brings some sunshine that the climate's not providing, so NO RUSH!

In my defense, I know there was approximately 3 hours of time I was not on the computer. I believe it was from about noon to 3:00 (or after). Vikings Game!!! (Did you all see that last second TD?) Of course Jules, you were probably sleeping at that time.

Just Jules said...

No rest for me yesterday - sigh... work to be done/caught up on.

No, in all reality I was just leaving the computer open in case the inspiration to do more dock work came up. You know as soon as you sit down at the computer is the time it is needed.

I did check into splitting the internet though hun- we just need a router. Will pick one up tomorrow - problem solved :)

now to find a new excuse... dang! ruin it for me.....

Ha! You wild woman you! Were you in your pjs in the rain? If I were there I would have hog tied you to your bed and force fed you soup (probably scorched, I burnt chili in the crock pot this weekend- who knew?) and tea. Hope you are feeling all better, if not, I'm with Will, I love your summer banner..it can stay! Speaking of velcro, will send you a amazing fun circus video...laughter is good medicine for the flu! Mwaah!

Your symptoms sound suspicously like the swine flu symptoms. The only thing missing is the cough. Did you have a cough? How are you feeling today? I hope your wee ones don't get sick. The flu is so hard on adults and harder on wee ones. How come no one told me you were sick? I guess I should have read your blog earlier!
I love your header also, but can't wait to see what you come up with for fall. You do a great job at that.

Just Jules said...

No swine flu goodness people! the flu is just the flu. I am fine today just weak.

julochka said...

love your punkins and squash and that you went out in the rain while you were sick to capture them. that's dedication. hope you're feeling better.

Chief said...

you did a marvelous job! I so need a new look...but to take the time.

Big Blue House said...

I love your new header, just a little smaller than I am used to seeing but very nice. Great pics also. Have you framed any of your pics yet? You should, they would look great in your house.

Just Jules said...

I know I am waiting for a blog friend to help me widen that header a bit. The one I had before the last one was narrow too - but not that narrow.
