If you have been a frequent visitor to my site, you may have had the same reaction that my youngest daughter Jess had when she recently stopped by for a read. "I almost jumped back from the screen because I was surprised to see flowers. So big and bright and pretty!" For the past couple days on my blog, I have been "rearranging furniture for a new look, picking up odds and ends strewn about and putting them back where they belong, sweeping away the cobwebs, picking a bouquet of wildflowers for the kitchen table, and throwing open the windows to let some fresh air" into my site. The impetus for the cleaning frenzy was my daughter Lisa's graphic designer eye, and simply... her new eyes peering in and providing "unsolicited" (Lisa's word) suggestions. My blog's spring cleaning is not complete, but please do stop by for a visit. (Picture is from a Dick & Jane workbook circa 1962.) Note: I thought it would be helpful to be "at the door to greet you"... just to reassure you that you were indeed at the right blog address. So, for yesterday's post, I moved an older post into that position... one with a photo of me and a bit of an introduction.
