Not much going on, yet everything changes

I’ve been contemplating changing things up a little for some time now, but you know how it is, one gets complacent with a status quo and everything carries on as before.

Yesterday evening, with Clover’s help, I finally decided on a new theme for my website.

This was a bit harder that I thought and at one point C and I were ready to throw in the towel.
You see, nothing’s just right. Some themes have beautiful images going clear across the screen, some themes have smaller images but better spaces for texts, some themes have both those but don’t have a running post display. No Goldilocks theme, no just right, always too hot or too cold.

But then, as I sat in my dining room, I looked to the left into my living room and to the right into my kitchen, and realised that nothing in my life is just right, but things are various degrees of wonderful.

So we’ll go with this small change for what I hope is the better. Remembering that I write this blog for you, but also for me, I hope you like it as much as I do as we continue to improve it and work out the kinks.

Beside me is Milo happily sleeping within arms reach of a pet, on the next chair over is Morgan, and on the table is a selection of garden roses and the last peony.

Life is a lovely degree of wonderful. 😀

    Sometimes magical change takes time to silently appear in the midst of the chaos of trying to make change happen in the first place.

      That’s so lovely Catiean, and, I suspect, very true. 😀
