New look!

Hello. So what do you think??

Morning Glory spent ages yesterday trying out different templates for me. This was true international collaboration, let me tell you. My daughter was on MSN in New Zealand, and my sister on email in Switzerland, and MG and I were on MSN - all at the same time. 3 continents and 4 countries. And my son was loitering behind me. I am too much of a chicken to do weird or wonderful things, but MG is Wonder Woman personified. There was much international laughter. Not to mention international suggestions on how to get the tomato marscopone sauce out of my cream sofa cushion after beloved son dropped some on it. Do not ask. We have reached the dull orange stage so far.

Back to the new look. I initially found a beautiful template with flying birds on it, after looking at a zillion. Do you know how many are out there??? Unbelievable! Unfortunately, the birds looked like flying furry caterpillars when it was up. And I really didn't want you to think I intended to have flying furry caterpillars. I am not partial to any sort of caterpillar. And as I am too afraid to change my own template, people, deleting furry caterpillars was not an option, and nor is designing my own header. Not yet. It is on the "to do" list for 2087. Finding a way to get INTO my own blog was a trifle challenging this morning as the little bar had disappeared, but, as you can see, I managed in the end.

Enough waffling on.

Morning Glory is wonderful. She is a star. She is brilliant. And I am happy to keep her from being bored. We can't have that! Thank you so much, my friend.

And now I am off to refill that coffee cup!

Nice. Though I'm not entirely sure how the rocking chair and the coffee cup fit.

To be honest, it looks a little too neat and clean and coffee-ish. It's nice, but I'm not sure it's you - as much as I know you, that is!

But it's quire lovely and I've completely forgotten what your old one looked like.

I wish some one would walk me through blog land. I am still out to tea with Noah!!!!

Mary - random thoughts (can't opemn my page at moment).

Linds said...

Ok - I am getting the message. My sister says I am more colourful.And I can't find a rocking chair anywhere, Dave. Sigh. Maybe I will go back to the flying caterpillars after all.

I can sit in my rocking chair and drink my coffee!

Mary said...

Have you had a new hair do? It looks really nice! I love your profile.

Hi Linds, I like the new look very much. It is so wonderful the way bloggers help one another. I would be completely lost without the dear souls who come to my rescue very often. I've been scarce of late, but hope to do better about coming by. Life rushes on for us.

Hi Linds, actually I really like it. I go by first impressions and when your blog first came up I thought, "Oh wow, I like it!" It's fun to change things around a little. Gives you a different perspective.

Love your new look! Nice and crisp and we all know how you love your coffee! I can't do my own changes either. SIGH.....

Jeana said...

I really like it! And now I've confirmed that you are one of the blogs that wasn't showing up in my Bloglines. :-)

Bloglines is still giving me fits with your blog, too.

We found a furry caterpillar yesterday. I'm wondering how he'd have looked on a blog. Coffee is always a nice theme. Thankfully I've got a cup to read with!

Changing the blog around is like rearranging furniture.

Hmmm, maybe I should give my SIL a call and have her give me a new look, since my techno guru, Kristen, is far too busy with her on line courses to give me a fresh look!

I've been worried about your lovely cream colored couch ever since you got it! I should blog about the use my downstairs couch is getting from the big girlies and how much I need a new one! But it won't be cream - not for a lot more years of babies and toddlers and messy school-age kids!

It looks very sophisticated, Linds!

Morning Glory said...

Good morning! Well, it's afternoon for you, but I'm sitting here in my jammies needing to go get dressed because I get to have a mole removed this morning. TMI? Yeah, probably more info than you wanted.

I like the coffee template, and I know how much you enjoy a good cuppa. Try it on for size for a few days, and if you find another one you like better, we'll have a go at it again. In the meantime, sit in that rocking chair and sip to your heart's content.

Morning Glory said...

Oh, I forgot, I'm going to change mine again, too. It's just too busy, even if the template is cute.

Lisa Marie said...

It looks great! I am a coffee drinker/lover too and I think it suits you. Try the new look out for awhile and see what you think

Hi Linds,
Your new look is very easy on the eyes. I love the colors..
Your feed still doesn't work. I know MG fixed hers, maybe she could help you with yours? Blogging friends are a real blessing indeed and she's at the top of the list.
