Time for a New Look

Yes, my blog is sporting a whole new look. But not really by choice. I realized that the free background that I'd been using had been dropped by The Cutest Blog on the Block and I was forced to find a new look. Don't you just hate that? You're cruising along feeling like at least one part of your life is calm and predictable and then WHAM!! It's all turned upside down.

I suppose it was time. Although I've been known to wear the same outfits for years (and I mean YEARS) it's because I know what I like and what works for me. I'm not easily seduced by fads. And I liked my old, comfy blog look. Anyway, this new template will do for now and I'll give some thought to how I want to "redecorate" my corner of the blogosphere.

My new job is keeping me busy so I haven't been posting as much. I only work half-time but I spend about another ten hours a week commuting to and from my job. I think with this economy a lot of folks are having to do this—take to the road to follow the money. I've been doing a lot of writing lately too, and I've even managed to sell some pieces (yea!!!) Hopefully I can manage to spend a bit more time here as well. In the meantime, hope you're enjoying the tail end of this rather odd summer. Our weather has been much cooler than usual and other parts of the country are frying. I guess the secret to life is just to stay flexible and ride the waves.


  1. hi tricia,
    haven't stopped by in a while.. i have been mia a bit this summer, just trying to "take it all in" and trying to figure out how to make money myself so i completely understand where you are coming from. how is everything out in wine country?

  2. Tricia, so sorry to hear about the rug being pulled out from under you by Cutest Blog on the Block. Hmmm... maybe try Hot Bliggity Blog? I've been so happy with Kacey who runs it. She's done some design work for me, and I haven't had any trouble with my free template! Regardless of the window-dressing though, you still have a terrific blog! Best, Jenn

  3. Oh, I like this look too!

    I think I've missed a few posts... Must go back and find out what you're up to.


Thanks for the messages—I read every one.
