Autumn Changes and Bewbs

“Autrice, this blog looks like fall!”

Why yes, yes it does. I’m in the mood for fall. I’m also in the mood to delve into a teensy bit of HMTL tinkering.

Working with code is a mesmerizing thing. It almost seems as if I detach my mind from my body. I am completely unaware of ordinary aches and pains. I don’t notice the muscle spasms or palpitations. I am, in essence, free. Of course, Better Half does not seem to identify with that; we wage wars over “too much time online”.

This fresh fall template is my way of telling the summer heat to piss off. We still have a bountiful crop of tomatoes on our vines. Squash is slowing spreading across the driveway asphalt as if it were an outrageous B-movie creature. Time marches on and I march with it. I am also saving time by having this done early.

Autumn is my preferred time of year. I do become somewhat maudlin when I look out my window and observe all my gorgeous flowers wilting like a defrocked prom queen tiptoeing out of a cheap motel. Flowers be damned, bring on the crisp air. Let me see rosy-cheeked children dashing up the street. I long to hear the crunch of leaves under my feel. I also long for a nice scarf, perhaps ivory in color and as soft as a cloud. Matching gloves would be phenomenal. Is this too obvious a hint? Hello? Husband?

An interesting note: there has always been something evocative or naughty worked into the background or banners of my blog since its inception. I have no idea why. I don’t even discern it until someone (a-hem BAAAA) points it out to me. Thus, I checked my email just now and found a note from the Ox and Spider. “Your banner,” he stated, “the pumpkins look like bewbs.”

Bewbs? My banner? Certainly not. Two eyeballs and nose, yes. Headlights on a car, perhaps. Oh who am I kidding?! They DO look like perfectly round breasts. Good Lord. We will not discuss the pinecone. I am not going to change that banner either. I have been working on the blog for most of the afternoon and I am certain that Better Half will start up with, “You spend too much time online” any moment now. He does have a point.

Thank you, Ox, for showing me where to get font for my banners!

Hi T. Love the new look. I know there must be a simple way of doing this but I just don't know where to start. Have you any clues for me?

I'm taking a short break from blogging. I have lots of creative stuff going on so for the moment it's "blogging without obligation" time.

OK. I just went back and took another look. Bewbs? Hummmm, I have no imagination but now that you mention it . . . teehee.
