Spring cleaning and some future plans
So I had a few uninterrupted hours on the computer yesterday and decided at the last minute to use it to spruce up the place. I accomplished the bloggy equivalent of opening the windows, painting the walls, moving the furniture, and generally redesigning most of the old place.
I say old for in blog years (which is much like dog years), Coffee Tea Books & Me is getting a little age on her. Like all homes, it is not perfect but good enough is... good enough.
There is something about doing a redesign on one's own that can bring out the shivers in even the most fearless of bloggers. So just in case I ended up with a mess, I left the original design up on another window. ;)
I have some new ideas in the works, too. Soon I plan to put together a second Warm and Cozy Books recommendation. Long time readers may remember I attempted this second version before and it never came to pass. But hope springs eternal.
One of my recent reads was John Stott's People My Teachers. It inspired memories of people who have helped mold and shape my thinking through the years. So I'm going to start a new series, not in a regular weekly format but when time permits a new post, about these people in my own life.
As with Stott's book, some will have influenced in person but most through their writing. Which I'm sure this group of readers will understand.
The sun is shining today and it is to warm up. I checked yesterday and the daffodils which bloom first... those which grow next to the house in the backyard and get a lot of sunshine... I think they will bloom by Easter. I hope. I have plans for them.
Now I must leave the keyboard behind and do some Spring cleaning in the real world. Just a little at a time here and there but it will be accomplished.
