New Design: The Great Canadian Housewife & Birthday Party

I am so busy with school and blogging, which I am trying to make into a part-time job while in school that I just don’t have the time to make a theme for The Great Canadian Housewife that I really like, so I did something I have not ever done before. I purchased a theme from Etsy. And honestly, I have to say I could not have bought a theme that fits the blog better! I probably could not have made one. And on top of that, I got Genesis Framework with it! Which is perfect because I want to learn more about creating child themes. I need to do a bit of research on it. Licensing and creating a child theme, among other things. I know the basics of creating a child theme but have never worked with Genesis for WordPress before and have to say I absolutely love it! I really want to learn more about it.

Other than that we had a pool party today for Eddie and I as well as my cousin Mackenzie as my birthday is tomorrow, Kenzie’s is the Wednesday and Eddie’s is Saturday. So we had 9 of us, we can only have 10 at once, so it worked out perfectly. We are allowed to visit for the time being. We just have to be careful. It was great. The only issue was the weather which has been really hot and humid for over 3 weeks now decided to cool off today and get foggy. So it was cool, but the pool water was 76F so it was really nice in the pool! We had a homemade ice cream cake after that mom and I made yesterday, ordered pizza, had punch (non-alcoholic as there were 2 kids and everyone was driving), and snacks.

Mom made Eddie and me a gift. I knew she was making it, I even arranged the names, which are the 5 of us and the 4 pets (including pumpkin who we lost 2 weeks ago, so it’s super special) and the shells. She had told me she was making it for herself, but it was actually for us. She actually also tried to get us a puppy as we want a golden retriever (or Goldendoodle or golden retriever/lab mix like Karli) but it fell through and ended up being a scam. There are so many of them! Scams that is. Golden Retrievers are hard to come by apparently.

This week I have to really concentrate on school and finish catching up. I am okay on two of three courses but I need to catch up in the third. I may also have to do some transcribing or captioning to make a few extra bucks. Spent a bit too much on Amazon over the last month or so. My own fault. I need to be more careful. I just find such neat things!

  1. Making child themes for Genesis is very different than “normal” child themes and it’s a little complex, but I like Genesis. I used it some year ago when I come across a quite cheap theme bundle. Then that company appears to have stopped doing WordPress themes which probably means they won’t provide updates so now I use something else. But I could consider using Genesis again if I had the patience to learn to make my own theme from scratch.

      1. Yes, I agree! If I’d make a theme from scratch again I’d probably use Genesis for it. I’m glad you’re doing well with your website stuff and that you can study again!

  2. Oh wow, that theme’s great! =3

    Sounds like you had a nice time. Cool thing your mom made too. And I feel you with spending too much. XD Its hard when you find cool things.
