Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Blogging after Resting and Rejuvenating?

Having been away from my computer for a few days, I'm back, and in keeping with my turning over a new, streamlined leaf this week, I cleaned up my blog look a tad. The book background was beginning to show up everywhere, so I reverted to my previous blog look.

Did anybody notice?

Also contemplating these two quotes swiped from Darcy Pattison's blog:

The function of the overwhelming majority of your artwork (including writing) is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars. —
David Bayles & Ted Orland, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

Before the gates of excellence, the gods have placed sweat. –
Katherine Paterson

(I've always loved that one from Katherine Paterson.)

Darcy titled her blog post Never Quit. To that I say, Amen...

I did notice the change in your blog “look”, but I must admit, I thought something was wrong with my computer till I began to read!!!!!!

I like this better than the intermediary look. It WAS showing up alot! That's the problem with templates. They're handy but don't feel unique.

This has a great clean look!
