A quiet Saturday

Carolyn here, as everyone else is asleep. It's been a lovely Saturday, with Shelby and Maddox finally getting to play again. He still has a couple of little stitches but there just was no keeping him contained anymore. So, with supervision of course, I let him and Shelby reunite.

What fun it was! I just laughed as the two raced around and around in the backyard, then after they'd calmed some, I let them in here to wrestle. I put Scotty up in Maddox's crate because he kept pawing at them, whining. He didn't like being ignored!

I have a question. How can I make this blog pretty? It is so plain and boring! Maddox doesn't care but Shelby thinks it could look better. Is there a place on blogspot to learn how to make things pretty?

And--I can't figure out why those pictures of Maddox and Claire look so darn--goofy. I can't figure out why they are so distorted. Any thoughts would be great.

I guess that is it for now. I am about to push Shelby over, grab a blanket, and take a short little nap. *yawn* Supervising pups at play is so tiring!

If you click on your "customize" button on the top right of your page, you can choose templates & layouts, fonts & colors, etc. Most anything you do will have a "preview" option so you can check it out before you accept the changes. Our mom just kinda learned by trial & error...
We're SO glad the furballs get to play together again! Wooohooo for playtime!

PS, you might ask AO4 about the picture thing....

Tucker said...

The Human Assistant says to try the Layouts help page.

He found some info pages that he's going to follow up on by putting "template" in the help search box.

Also see the template topics from the Advanced Use page. Like Where can I find more templates?.

The pictures are all cut off on the right side, too. He thinks the problem is that they are wider than the sidebar.

Say Woo to Shelby for me!

Tucker said...

Well, the pictures are wider than the sidebar and Blogger isn't adjusting them for you. Unlike how it tweaks pictures in the main part of the blog.

So H.A. says.

C said...

Oh wow! Thank you! I will resize them, and thanks all for the tips. Tucker, tell you H.A. extra thanks for the helpful lengths. I want to make the blog alot prettier than it is. I am used to Livejournal which is way easier (to me anyway) to manipulate.

And in other good news--I just ordered Harnessed to Hope's cookbook for the Kids. I can't wait to try those recipes out for them!

We aren't good at any of the blog customizing but it sounds like you got some suggestions. Maddox, glad you get to play again.


Holly said...

Bama said exactly what I was going to, ask the Ao4, that Stormy is a computer genius!! That's who I always asked for help!


Maddox said...

Thanks Holly! I think I am pretty okay with how it is now, except that stupid star in the header. I can't figure out how to get rid of that. Hmph. But, I guess I can pretend it is a Lonestar star, since I'm a Texas pup and all.
