After View

This is the after view. Now the lemon tree, rose bush and gas bar-b-que are visible. That bucket is used to collect rainwater.Posted by PicasaIn Peace and Health, Nan

Here yesterday-gone today

Yesterday, the big excitement at our home was that we had a big Palo Verde Tree removed. It took two men and major equipment to cut it down and remove the roots. The tree was so gigantic that it was infringing on our neighbor's property (her chimney), loomed closer and closer to the gas bar-b-que, and rested on our roof. The green monster shed at the slightest hint of a breeze and although it was beautiful in bloom and did provide some much needed shade, I was relieved and sad to see it go. The blossoms, droppings, and sharp smaller branches fell off at different times during the year and landed on our patio, other shrubs, and made a total mess of our backyard. But, I remember times I glanced at the Palo Verde out of my bedroom window and had a light heart. It seems like it grew from a little stick of a thing to a massive out of control monster only in the last few years My husband had the dubious pleasure of raking the muck and mess and he's celebrating one less job to do. I've provided the before photo. I'll send the after later on.

Patience and Persistence Packs a Punch

The combination of patience and persistence paid off for me and I'll explain why. Up until this morning, I didn't know how to edit my posts on Each time I clicked Edit Posts on the blog spot dashboard, then checked the box next to Edit View, I froze (waiting for something to happen). I ventured no further. Today, on a lark, I clicked the box next to the Edit portion and the word Edit and voila. I'm able to edit posts. This may not seem BIG to you, who have mega skills in the techno world, but to me, it made me feel GREAT!

Have the best day you possibly can. Create abundance and peace in your life today and your karma will spread positive energy around.

Adventures in blogging up close and detailed

Blogging adventures up close and personal

Early this morning I discovered how to change the template colors on my blogspot (my last post mentioned that I didn’t care for the green that was in my original layout). By clicking the tab on layout in the dashboard and clicking again on font and color, I replaced the green. When I was through making my choice, I clicked save. Whee. What a relief.
I also figured out how to drag and rearrange individual portions of this blogspot. (my host's address is provides help articles, user discussions, and forums. Blogger is a free blog publishing tool from Google. So get ready world….even though I feel like I’m in blogging Kindergarten, I’m determined to go for a blogging spin.
What were your first experiences learning something new (it doesn’t have to be about blogging) and how did you overcome obstacles to learning? Please let me know.
