    It has been a month since my last post.  It has been busy.  I got to spend Thanksgiving week with my best friend and her family.  After that it was a lot of prep for art markets I was signed up for this past weekend.  And then the last few days have been a combination of recuperating and cleaning.  How busy has the past month been for you?

    This morning I wrote 777 words for my morning pages on 750words.com.  I also feed the cats, prepared food, and took my vitamins.  Good morning so far.  How is your morning progressing?  Is there anything this week that you are grateful for?  Here are some of mine.

    It has been 30 weeks since I last practiced gratitude lists.  I think it is time I got back to it.  Are there anythings that were good for your mental health that you stopped doing?

A Shiny New Look

    One of the projects for my blog I had planned this year was an overhaul.  To change up the look and to make my own banner.  But with life and summer classes this got shoved to the back burner indefinitely.  Well I've started working on it again and I've decided to just go ahead and start changing stuff over.  So things around here are going to be changing as I find something I like.

    I want something pretty, that says me,  but I also want something that is legible for people like me who have difficulty reading standard print.  I also want to try and make sure that all my images have alt text for people using text to speech and other such programs.  I have been trying to do that for some time now, but every now and then I miss an image.

    If there is anything else I can do to make my blog more readable please let me know.  I want to be accessible.  I am dyslexic and that gives me some ideas of what to work on.  However, I can't speak for the experiences of others.  So if you see something I can fix or know of something I can do please let me know.

Until later,

I'm Back

    Last month was my blogiversary.  Four years of Petticoat Pedaler.  A lot of changes.  The last two years have been rough.  A lot of challenges and losing some of my independence.  The last year in particular though has been rather painful.  I have taken some time to think about what I want to write about.  What I want to work toward.  I still feel like I need to figure some of it out, but I have at least a couple things I want to work on.  I want to talk about more spoonie stuff.  I want to look into accessibility for the print disabled and if there is more of it than what I know of or if it can be improved.  I want more kawaii and cute in my life.  I have been so tired lately and I do not feel cute a lot of the time.  But I also want to study.  I want to improve my skills.  So I am back and I hope I can write often.  But I also want to write better.  I hope to see you around.  Let's see where we go from here.

See ya around,

Lessons In Baking: Smell the Ingredients


   Yesterday I made brownies.  And they failed.  They came out smelling like play dough.  Weird.  One of the braver of us reported that they tasted like the stuff too.  Eww.  So why?  I make them from a box.  It’s one of the few things I use a box mix for and it has been a hit for years now.  So was the mix old or maybe a bad batch.  That is what we were thinking until I thought to smell the oil I had used.  Sure enough that was it.  So today's lesson in baking is to smell your ingredients.  Have you had any baking fails or wins lately?
