My New Look....

So, I changed the look of my blog...how do you like it? I had wanted to change the background for some time now, but never had the time to do it, and honestly, didn't know how to do it. I love the color green. If you know me, my two favorite colors are green and red. Pink use to be one of my favorite colors, but that was years ago. Now if I can only personalize my blog like my sister's and Sue's blogs. They have these really neat pictures on their blogs...but I don't know where to download them from...help would be appreciated girls! Let me know. Scroll down, I had more time today and I wrote another post! Enjoy!

Do love the look of your blog. Am going to work on mine after Thanksgiving...as for the cute things on my blog, it's called copy and paste! Feel free to do so with anything on mine if you want to, or if you see something while surfing the net, copy and paste. You can also use Google for pictures...I love Google!

Oh, copy and paste, I should have known that! Thanks....but how do I put it on my blog? Just position it where I want it and it will be pasted right there?

Okay, here's a great site that I just found...http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/index.php
Then go to the "accessorize your blog" and pick from what they have. I just added a nice one to the top of my blog...go check it out. You have to "customize" your blog and then go to the thing that lets you add things to your sidebar. I think I clicked on "add text" to add my new thing...go look at the site, it even has that Live, Love, saying that you love!

Looks nice Liz! We had quite the snow squalls today - and like you, I loved it! I'm so thankful to live where there are seasons! I hope to get a TON of snow this winter, except around January 11 when this baby is due - I don't want ANY then! Get me to the hospital, thankyeverymuch.

One way to add pictures, is when you find one on the internet, like your friend suggested, put your cursor over the picture, right click your mouse, and select "Save Picture As". Then remember where you save it (I have a computer folder that I call "Blog pics"), and upload it just the same as you would one of the pictures on your side bar. To do it in a post, there should be a button above where you write posts (don't remember which one now), but if you select it it will bring you to a new window where you can upload photos - go select it from that folder where you saved it. Make sense? Clear as mud? It really is very, very easy.

As for finding the time to blog, we never watch TV, and I'm very much homebound. It can get out of hand if I let it, because reading on the computer (other blogs or Christian articles, "window shopping", nothing bad) is a real time waster for me. But when I'm doing it "right" I wait until the kids are napping, my housework is done, dinner is planned, etc. You know how it goes where some days/weeks things fall into place, and other times, you just can't make it happen no matter how hard you try! Just the way it goes as we wives/moms know!

Yes, fireplace is going on tonight! We're looking into getting a pellet stove insert, as ours is just a fireplace for now.

Take care!
