i don't know...does it seem a little brighter in here to you?

So....the whole 'floating message' has been taken care of. 
Muchos arrigatos to my friend, Cheryl, in Santa Fe, who was reading another blogger having the same trouble and passed on that blogger's address, who I quickly e-mailed ("hi, you don't know me, but....") and got a speedy reply and remedy.
All I had to do was go to the place where I got my background, do some changing around and...voila

We are back in business.
But, it's still hot and humid and I am moving slower than
a snail with a head cold, so....yeah.
I got a new look...and that's about it for now.
(And yes, I know..."a snail with a head cold"?? i really have no idea as to where that came from.   sometimes, you don't need to question it....just keep moving, folks.)

A beautiful butterfly that I chased around the garden for about 15 minutes, to get the perfect picture:
After seeing the picture, I did feel a little better about getting so sweaty in the process of getting the I'm sure the neighbors were wondering what the hell I was doing, so it really was a win-win kind of day!
Why are chubby thighs on a 9-month old cute and make people smile, while chubby thighs on a 48-year old are a whole 'nuther story??
It's not really fair, is it?

Oh. Em. Gee.
Imagine my surprise and glee (whee!!) when, on a regular grocery shopping outing, I happened across
a shelf that had a few jars of this:
I'm not going to question its existence. 
I've learned that when you do that? Yeah..things disappear.
I did, by the way,  buy 2 about $4.50 a jar, I had to draw the line at 2....the boys need their milk in the morning a little more than I need something for my chips (this was a very hard decision, though.).
***************** what happens to empty (or not so empty, sometimes) boxes, when there is an artist in the house.

Happy Thursday, everyone.
Thanks for sending the cool thoughts....they are most appreciated!!
(Don't stop, though...keep 'em coming!!)
