Tweaking My Blog -And SOME WELL DESERVED THANK YOU’S – Saturday, September 19, 2015

I made a few changes this afternoon on how my blog looks. I changed the font. The pallet or colors. The photos. While I love the photo of the young girl, lying down, in the grass reading a book, looking like I may have 30 plus years ago, it just didn’t fit the colors I wanted.
It is not me anymore and hasn’t been for a long, long time.

I am still looking for attic photos to use here with my title but haven’t found the right FREE one. I need a good logo. 
While looking at photos, I ran across a book I’d like to read. Wishing I could just order it.


I still hate my WHITE background  but that is probably just me. I don’t like white.

I also know I need to redo many of the categories and tags but that is a project for when I feel more alert and have time.


I am learning that blogs take a lot of work keeping them fresh and updated.
One can’t just keep adding new posts without making sure the old ones still look good.
I need to get rid of some of my older ones or revamp them somehow.
That again is something I am not ready to do. Mentally and physically.
I like how my blog is changing. Improving.

I have changed, even in the 6 months I have been blogging. Four months, daily or close to it.
I love this blog. It is keeping me SANE. Keeping me in Focus.

Keeping a smile on my face. A real smile and not the fake one I have worn so long.

Thank you, all of you who visit daily or weekly. You give me a reason to get up and get going.

I appreciate all of you. I can’t believe how many new bloggers I hear from daily. I can’t keep up , although I am trying.

A like to me is everything. (I try and visit all of your blogs as well)
It means you were here or saw me some place else.  A like means something caught your eyes. So keep the likes coming.

Your comments give me so much joy.
I laugh and have even cried at some of the wonderful posts I get every day.
I spend hours a day reading your comments and then answering you back.
I LOVE IT.


I visit as many blogs as I can, every day.
New ones and old ones.
I love reading what you have to say. I enjoy learning about other countries.
You are family to me. I value family.
Friends are essential to my life.
Love to you all ,
Sarah

                      Does your Ex help out like he should? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to.

            2. No worries if you can’t.
              I would love to get your recipe though. I check the blog and didn’t find one.

              1. no I am making them now ha ha to put up, right now eating them

              2. ok Sarah your shwarma is ready!!! check it out dear!

                    1. I am glad you think so.

                    2. I hope you are doing well Sarah!!!

                    3. Between you and me…Danny said something that hurt me last night. BAD. It came out of nowhere and should NEVER have been said. It was an insult to me and to the person he talked about,
                      He knew it tore me up.
                      So I am surprised I AM As good as I am today. I didn’t sleep last night or much after he left for work.

                    4. I am soo sorry!! I hope you are ok

                    5. NO Not really.
                      You know something that hurtful DOES NOT JUST GO AWAY. Especially when Danny is NOT sorry he said it.
                      We were having a good evening.
                      No fussing or anything before hand.
                      Let’s just say it had to do with SEX and it is something I have no control over any more.
                      It was the kind of comment a young guy in his 20’s might say in a locker room but a man in his 50’s who is married and loves his wife should NEVER SAY IT.
                      I am a bit “COLD” to him right now. Polite but that is all I can be.
                      He hurt me bad.
                      And he knows it.

                    6. I am so sorry!!
