New Style

Hello, everyone!  I thought I should check in with a quick post and let you know that I'll be writing again soon.  In the meantime, you can read some archives if you like -- now that this blog is actually legible!  I was showing some posts to Emmanuelle and was surprised at just how difficult it was to navigate.  You all are very patient people.  I mean, I knew the background photo made the posts a bit challenging to read; then I realized that it made the side bar almost impossible to read.  I'm surprised there weren't complaints!  I hope this is an improvement for those of you who aren't reading an RSS feed.

I feel like I owe you something of a story, too.  Today was one of the first cold days I can remember here.  Well, it was kind of cold.  I wore a hat while taking the boys to school this morning, partly because it was so cold and partly because I didn't want to fix my hair.  Little did I know what trouble I was causing.  Immediately Pietro demanded a hat like mine, along with gloves and a scarf.  In the end, he had to content himself with the hood and the pockets of his winter coat.  When we picked them up from school, it was almost too warm to wear a coat.  Ah, the weather in Rome.

Sorry, that wasn't a very interesting story.  I would really like to do something new and different this weekend.  We'll see what I can come up with.

Alla prossima!

Haha, how funny! I always had considered your blog slightly difficult to read, but I would simply scroll the words I wanted to read up to the portion where the creamy white architecture created a nice background for the words. But oh my -- how nice this is! I like the change . . . for the most part; I do miss the full architecture just a tad.

I know, I was sad to make that sacrifice. The blog seems to be lacking something now, but at least it's functional. Maybe some rainy weekend I'll come upon an even better design.
