“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

As some of y'all undoubtedly know, Blogger is having an internal problem which is making a lot of us unable to upload an image. The funny part about all of this is that I'd just 1 minute before edited yesterday's post & uploaded a different image of Rain-Soaked Pavement with a different border color because I wanted to see if it would help "pretty up" my blog. I figured I could post it, check it out, and then change it real quick if it looked silly. No one would ever be the wiser. But now I'm busted. It's stuck there - at least temporarily. And I like it - I really do - but I feel like I'm being so goofy about this! I look at other people's blogs & they look so cheerful & colorful & fun & then I look at mine & it seems so, well, definitely not colorful. And it doesn't matter that I've had people tell me, with no prodding from me, mind you, that they like my color "scheme" - the lovely, lovely, lovely Katie (with her lovely new haircut) says it's soothing, Theresa says it looks like me. Hmmmm, I'm sure she meant that as a compliment, but now that I'm thinking it's colorless . . . . No, I know she meant it in a good way. God is happy. He laughs at me.
