Yes, I've changed templates. So much in my life, in my self, is changing the past couple months, the pink of the old template was annoying me to pieces! LOL
I also wanted a format that would be easier for me to manage on my own, without having to plague dear Christine every time I wanted to change something in the sidebar. She is lovely to help me out, but I like being independent where I can't reciprocate service.
I'm undertaking a parallel course at home. I was sitting in my mother's rocker a month or so ago, knitting, and it suddenly occurred to me, in a complete non sequitur that I don't own a single chair that a man would be comfortable sitting on! and then I began to look around and to realize that my ersatz cottage look was too fussy and cluttered and had become annoying to me - almost overnight!
So, as with my house, so with my blog - a cleaner line, more subtle and sophisticated (just like the New Me!)
and more to come -
h/t to Angie for telling me about the changes here at Blogger that allow me to do all this.
