Color My World

I hope, someday, to be able to design my own blog template that will utilize colors, graphics and pictures I like, instead of a pre-designed template. I really like how Pamela's blog looks, and maybe I'll try and come up with something of my own that has the same feel. I also realize this self designed blog template could take weeks, months, even years, unless the Learning Annex offers a class in blog design... Shoot Me For now, this template is okay. I kind of like the way the black background blog templates first appear, but I soon realized that it was a strain (for me) to look at... It's an age thing, I'm sure, as my eyes are now going in the opposite direction as I'm now needing readers...Eyeglasses 2 WELL, one day I WILL conquer the computer and blog templates.... For now, I have to use whatever I can get for free. Pink

Today is a kick-back day. It's not as hot as it was yesterday, so I'm spending a quiet day at home doing some laundry. I may go for a walk, later, with my hubbie. I am super itchy to run, but the foot is not completely pain free yet. I still have a little soreness but I no longer need analgesics. I STILL need to hold off of running, biking and swimming for at least another two weeks. Blue I just need to be patient. Nutrition is clean.

Peace

Thought I was on the wrong blog there for a minute.

I should get a new template, but I know it will take hours to figure out one with more personality, especially when they are free.

I feel the eye strain, too, but I need to cut down on internet time.

Rachel,
This is the 4th time I've changed my blog template. It's toasty everywhere! The temps broke yesterday, so I hope it stays that way.

Shpprgrl,
Thanks! I'm usually a big chicken when it comes to computer stuff...

Pamela,
I use free smilies from smileycentral.com. October is such a long way off, but at least you have an appointment. Biking is great! I can't even do biking right now... Take care and I hope your foot issue gets resolved!

Cherie,
Yep, it's me! :)
There are computer glasses but I have yet to break down and get some. The prescription is set just for your computer usage and is probably only good for that purpose. I find myself straining when I look at a computer page that has a black back ground.

Tom,
Thanks. I needed a change. Yay for you! Wooohooo! You win! Hope you had a great b-day!
