Extreme Makeover [not] - Blog Edition
I've had it in my head for a while to "remodel" the blog, but I have no idea what to do. I've fooled around with the other available templates on Blogger, but none of them really grab me. And I don't know enough to create a custom template of my own. Then occasionally I see nice templates on other people's blogs who use WordPress or something else and think maybe I should switch to that. But I'm not sure that would be any easier in the end, so I just get frustrated and stick with what I have ... the weird thing is, it must be something that is going around, because a lot of other blogs I read are remodeling too! If anyone has any brilliant suggestions, or recommendations, please feel free to pass them along.
Anyway, time to move along, people.
Melanie and Ann and Liz both named me for a You Make My Day Award, which I take as a great compliment, thank you! I will admit that it has taken me a while to get around to it, so a lot of people I may have given it to have already received it (some several times!), so I didn't want to repeat that. I'm supposed to name ten other people, so I decided to name some of the blogs that I read (though not all have been added to my sidebar yet), that as far as I know, haven't been named yet. So here they are, in no particular order:
1. Anne, of The Bookworm's Knitting
2. Dave, of Criminy Jickets
3. Debi, of FluffyKnitterDeb
4. N. Maria, of The Knackful Knitter
5. Mary, of Pembroke Purls
6. dmaxi, of Under Me Oxter
7. Yoko, of The Ballad of Yoko
8. Brigitte, of Wrapped Around My Finger
9. Lorraine, of Sheriff of Knittingham
10. Wendy, of Knit and the City
I really enjoy reading these blogs, and am always happy to see new posts in my Bloglines.

As you may have noticed, Chumleigh and Clancy are black cats. They live with my niece Amanda and her husband Patrick in Baltimore, and we visited with them this weekend. My nephew Zachary turned two years old on Friday, and his parents (my niece Liz and her husband Greg) had a birthday party for him. So we stayed at Amanda and Pat's house, and I decided that even though I have an infinite number of pictures of my own kitties, I'd make these two the stars for C in the ABC Along. Chumleigh is striking his best John Barrymore pose, and Clancy is concentrating on watching the laser toy so that she can kill it! They are extremely sweet cats, and we enjoy seeing them as much as getting to see everyone else.
Our trip was a lot of fun, and we were glad to be able to go to Zach's party, since we don't get to see him as often as we'd like.
That's it for now, time to catch up on some movie-watching ...
