Okay, I just spent over an hour changing the look of this blog around. I found a few backgrounds that I really liked on "The Cutest Blog on the Block," but they wouldn't upload properly, so I used this one instead from another site. I like it, though not as much as some of the other ones, and not as much as my old one. But it will suffice and I think it looks nice enough. Thank you for your help, Alyson and Jessie (and Shandi!). Now it's time to move on!
I love this picture. Reading a good book outside in pleasant weather is one of the best things in life. I created a special spot in my backyard under the trees and off to the side, with a wonderfully comfortable lounge chair just for this purpose. Now I need to use it more often before the mild weather goes away. This picture inspires me to do so!
