It's Amazing What a Little Color Can Do...

I was looking at my blog today and noticed how blah it looked.  Too much brown.  Yes the birds are a nice touch, so soothing, but really?  I didn't want to put you to sleep.  I needed to change it and pronto. I want all of you to be excited to be here and be happy and gay and definitely not depressed.  I want this blog to be a happy place.  I can't wait to fill it with pictures, primarily of flowers or anything that I fancy really... but first, I have to learn how to do so.  Once I do, oh boy, this whole page will be filled with flowers.  Lately tulips make me very happy.  I love their open faces staring at the sky:  yellow, orange, white, red, pink, purple waving in the air, saying hi to all.  And don't forget the crocus and the daffodils. 

Amazing, isn't it, what a little color can do but how do you change it?  Everything sounds so simple.  Aye, there's the rub, how indeed?  I figuratively rolled up my sleeves and took a deep breath for it meant clicking here and clicking there, not knowing exactly what would happen to my screen, to my page!   Yikes talk about Alice in Wonderland.  I feel like Alice when I venture into this alternate reality - the INTERNET, the Blogs, The feeds, the Tweets!  Imagine Lewis Carroll having to keep up with a blog?  He'd probably still be trying to get to his blog post so he could finish his masterpiece.  I can see him being stuck trying to "EDIT HTML,"  he'd never get to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and forget the Mad Hatter's Tea Party!  The point, dear readers, is that there's always a learning curve, just like life, just like writing, it needs to be honed and sought. Sometimes not knowing is easier but knowledge is power. Don't ever forget it.  

What a sense of accomplishment I feel.  Tonight I tamed the beast, but tomorrow....What say you?

Anyway, dear readers, I did it!!!  I love the new color scheme.  Tell me what you think.


  1. Oh, I love this color, hon.

    Now all you need to do is go click above and go to design. When it gets there you will see a bunch of boxes. You will also see "add a gadget". This might get scary, but it's not, really. You hit that gadget and see where it says "pictures". Any pictures you've saved to your gallery can be put here. You'll figure it out in time. I have a blast. Probably too much fun, really.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks Lorelei! What would I do without you? The Beatles said it best: I Get By With a Little Help from My Friends...

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Glad your kitchen is coming along.
