Short and sweet

Work has me so flippin’ busy I haven’t been able to find time to read my blogs!  I’ve been trying to catch up here and there on the train but sometimes I just want to sit there with my tunes playing and my eyes closed.  This morning when I got on the train there was an unattended backpack in a seat near me.  How crazy is it that one of my first thoughts was that being at ground zero I wouldn’t feel a thing?  Sheesh.

So enough about work; it’s boring and depressing.  But this is hopeful and sums up my own feelings and beliefs.

Plain and simple.

Plain and simple.

Happy Friday!

The theme’s the thing!

With apologies to William Shakespeare.  Today’s Blogging 101 assignment was to try on different themes.  I finally had some free time and did just that.  It wasn’t as simple as the instructions led me to believe.  Interpretation:  I was quickly frustrated, but I pressed on.

I looked mainly for simple, uncluttered themes and liked more than a few.  The ones I didn’t care for were the busier layouts – those designed more for folks who often post photos or other types of graphics.  With no artistic talent to speak of, I left those behind and narrowed my “likes” to three.

If you’re reading this you can see my new theme – Truly Minimal.  I LOVED the lighthearted polka dots and the layout of Adelle, but I was having trouble with the font used for the posts.  Between the font size and the way it seemed to disappear against the background, these tired old eyes were ready to rebel.  When I saw how clean, crisp and readable Truly Minimal is I was hooked.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

If not, it’s been nice knowing you.  😉

And if anyone knows why my emoticon won’t work in the new theme please enlighten me?  Thanks!
