Updating Gallery System Complete

I just finished updating my new gallery set up... I even added new images! I hadn't added anything new to my galleries in over two years. Hopefully now that I have the easier to manage JavaScript based gallery it will lead to more frequent updates. :)

Updating Website

I'm in the process of updating part of my website! While chatting with Djordje yesterday we got to talking about coding and I mentioned that I love to code and wish I was better at it as my flash gallery is complete fail.. well maybe not complete fail but it's not nearly what I had envisioned it. Super awesome Djordje was kind enough to give me a helping hand and fixed up Galleria by DevKick Lab so that it would fit nicely within my gallery pages. I'm still doing some fine tweaking but it's looking pretty snazzy. You can see it in progress in the Fauna section of my gallery.

Driving to Maysville Road

Had a good driving day today! Mom had to go to Menards to check out their window selection and then grab some groceries. To get some good practice I got to drive over to the Maysville Road walmart which is about 9 miles away. It went really well, there was several areas that the speed limit changed so had to keep an eye out for that... switched lanes a couple times... Over all I think it went quite well! parked twice both times a smidge too close on the left side but getting there.. backing up still needs some work but getting better.

Shutterbug Show and Sale

Today is an exciting day! I'll be helping mom out with her table at the Local Shutterbugs 2010 3rd Annual Photography Show & Sale She'll have some of her framed prints that will be in a Gallery Show she'll be having over the summer as well(more info on that soon) and a ton of 4 by 6 prints. I'm looking forward to it, I think it'll help prepare her for her gallery opening reception. Here's hoping to today being an absolutely fantastic day!

Good Friday Driving

Just got back home with a Jamocha shake in hand from Arby's mm delicious. Mom took me out driving around Elmhurst High school again and I got to drive around there for a bit and then we moved towards the Gravel Pit area to find out if we could see get to the Frog Rock on Sand Point.. alas we were unable to they have fenced it up and labeled it private property.

While driving by the Gravel Pit I got to drive in a bit of country which was nice only to realize... on the way back I had to go through an intersection with normal lights(the only other one I had been through was a flashing all way stop).... first one and it went well! On our way back towards Elmhurst we drove over to Indian Village nice neighborhood with some busier streets.

All in all it went quite well.. just need to focus more on my slowing down and turning and keeping away from the side of the road. Mom might let me drive from Elmhust all the way back home which is about an 8.5 mile drive. Excited and nervous but feeling a lot better about driving. :)
