Time for Blog Adjustments

In short:  same blog, different look.  I spent way too much time yesterday pretending that I understand html code.  (I don't.) 

I still need to label many of the older posts, so they will show up under the tabs.  The blog hops page needs work, but it's going to take me a while year to figure out how to line the buttons up nicely.  I want to resize my "Thankful thought" and signature line.  I'd like to redesign my blog button and favicon.  I want to update my profile.  I might even change some of the days that I post, or not follow as strict of a schedule as I have for the past year.  We'll see.  I'll let you know as soon as I decide. 

In the meantime, take a look around.  What do you think?  If you find any broken links or things that otherwise don't work, please let me know.  (And if you know how to fix the problem, all the better.)


Thanks for google search, and bloggers who have written tutorials about blogging.

  1. I already like it better. It loads a lot faster than the previous one. I'm glad you kept the family photo. I've always liked it. I'm off to look around...

  2. Wow! Very nice look. I know it took a ton of work and frustration but perseverance always pays off and this time it did for sure. Nice job. I like your button, that's on my list of things to do.

  3. I think it is looking great. It seemed to struggle loading and sizing the family photo in the sidebar when I change pages but it does size and I don't know what is causing the issue...

    1. Hmm, I see what you mean about the sizing issue, but I don't know what is causing the problem, either. I'll have to puzzle on that a bit. I didn't actually change anything about the photo from the old blog design to the new, so I'm not sure how to make it better. I might not get it fixed soon, but I'll try to figure it out. Thanks for the feedback.

    I like the tabs at the top.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
