Mosquitos & Redesign

A puppy for your Friday :)

Mosquitos have to be my least favorite things about summer.
If there is one within a hundred mile radius, it will find me.
Lately I've been covering myself up to the neck with long pants,
socks, and sweatshirts to avoid getting bit so the other night, 
I got a bite on the top of my head, right along the part in my hair. 
I've also had several bites on the bottoms of my feet too. 
 Either those little guys are getting desperate or this is payback 
for only getting one bite at the beach on Monday while 
my sister got at least ten. Yikes. She's just fine by the way.

I've been wanting to change up the look of the blog for a while now,
pretty much since I made the last header, decided I didn't like it 
immediately and didn't have the energy to stare at photoshop 
any longer than I already had. Then things got busy and 
would check the page to see how a post would look and 
tell myself that I really needed to do something about that header.

So yesterday I took advantage of some free time to do a bit 
of updating and gave the blog a new look... and changed the name of it,
 just slightly. I wasn't entirely crazy about that either.
I was impressed by how quickly I was able to get it all done.
I still cringe at the memory of the first time I attempted Photoshop.
It literally took all day and didn't turn out very well.
But practice makes perfect and my skills have very much 
improved, though I'm still no expert on the subject.

I am still working on that "about" page. 
It's funny, you know. It should be easy to write 
a little something about yourself, who you are, 
what your blog is about, why your started it,
but for one reason or another, whenever I sit down to write it
I go blank. I could tell you all about World War II, 
or the Antebellum South, or my favorite lately,
about the Incan civilization and the little story I wrote
that was inspired by it, but ask me to tell you about myself
and I simply cannot find the proper words.
Does this happen to anyone else?
It must...

Let me know what you think of the redesign
and have a wonderful weekend!!!
