Obviously, the big news for the week is that The Bookwyrm’s Hoard has a new home and a new (in progress) look! Thanks to Ashley at Creative Whim, I’m now on a self-hosted site. I actually bought the domain name a year and a half ago, but I dithered around because I’m not very tech-savvy, and I wasn’t sure I could migrate the blog. Ashley did a great job, and wow, is she fast! You can read a little more detail about the move here.
The old blog address is redirecting to the new home page, but if you follow via RSS feed, you may want to update the address. The new one is https://bookwyrmshoard.com/ .
I’m working on bringing myself up to speed on WordPress and WordPress themes, but it will take a little while. I will probably be playing with the theme for several weeks, if not longer. It’s a very customizable theme. I do plan to bring back the Bookwyrm in some form for the header, but I think he needs a new photo. The one I have is a bit blurrier than I like. Maybe I should get someone to draw him, instead of using a photo?
In other news, my choruses start rehearsals today, and I can’t wait! I love working with my kids, from kindergartners through high school seniors (and a few older mentors as well!) They’re all wonderful, and it’s so rewarding to make music together.
Yesterday Mr. Bookwyrm and I went to the Fall Fiber Festival and Montepelier Sheep Dog Trials. Gorgeous yarns and fibers; demonstrations of spinning, weaving, knitting, crochet, and other fiber arts; delicious food; sheep, goats, angora rabbits and llamas; and incredibly talented Border Collies. It was great! I missed having Robin with us, though, especially since she’s also a knitter.
