Heart Strings with fur....& a baby in a big red pot.!

Happy Sunny Thursday Everyone....
I met some wonderful online friends & when I shared about our rather Large Mainecoone Cat Mr. O'malley,

They wanted to know why I didn't have any recent photos of him on my blog...well I do have pictures of fat boy on here, but they're not recent. So here ya go...... he is such a ham..yuckin it up for the camera....then his very jealous housemate Opie became a little out of sorts & began the " HEYYYYY!!!!What about me?" Im not one to break here's all that makes my heart skip a beat or two....

I found these 2 absolute adoreable pics of Natalie Jo on my daughter in laws FB page & Grammie just had to have....I told her the one in the pot puts a whole new spin on bein on the Pot-ty! LOL
Then there were a bunch of cute sayings that Lanas' FB friends were posting about what Nat could have been thinking with her little dainty finger under her chin...well we all know she was "really" wondering when shes gonna see Grammie & Pops again???!

As some of you know, Ive been in "The Zone" with my recent much needed spring cleaning...'s the thing....I cant STOP! This poor house has been so neglected for a variety of excuses, some even justifiable & understandable in the beginning, then I just got plain overwhelmed, disgusted & depressed. I felt like such a fraud visiting so many other fabulous blogs when my home felt so uncomfortable living here.
Since cleaning, scouring walls,appliances, windows, cabinets, un-cluttering & reorganizing every drawer & closet, every nook & cranny simplified. I feel as if Ive gotten a new purpous in life....yet another second chance at making my house a home...
Celebrating "Primitive Simplicity" I dont feel fraudulent any longer, when I visit you.....Now if I could just find someone to hire & decorate my blog..make it networking friendly.

If any of you know someone who would be willing to work with me for a reasonable price, Id sure appreciate it. I'm looking for maybe a new background, Id like to add widgets,maybe a new border, add links & a follower thingy...something with some POP that would increase my ability to "keep" the friends I make.

I understand why some get upset, feel slighted & don't return nor do they leave comments,. I "get" that I truley do... But those who know me understand its not because I'm selfish or rude, but am unable to update my blog alone..there's very little I know of that I can do on my own anyway....I need help.
Asking or reaching out is not always easy....but I'm finally in a place where complacency is'nt nearly enough nor is it acceptable to me....
I'm embracing change inside, & outside..& I've heard..."If you don't go'll go without..." Ive been without long enough.
Any Takers? Suggestions? Know someone who knows someone?
Edited to express my sheer joy when I attempted once add the "Follow Me Thingy" on my own & low & behold...... I may have learning disablities but I am a StUbBoRN woman...I went into my blog guts like Schwartzenhager......& another cuppa coffee & Im going to try to add some links...."I'LL BE BACK!"OMG Im unstoppable! LOL

New beginnings everywhere..thank you Springtime!

Kat, I'm glad you got offers for helping you with the blog. I am just not techie enough for this stuff, myself. A good (online) friend of mine updated mine for me last time, but she's now gone back to college full time. When I get ready for a new makeover, I'll have to figure something out, too!

I'm sorry you thought I wasn't getting your comments on my blog recently. I didn't realize I'd changed the settings that prevented comments from appearing until I'd moderated them. I assume I made that setting change, but I have no memory of doing so. Of course, that's only one of many things I do, but don't remember! ;-Þ
