Wordy Wednesday - New Digs and stuff

How About That? Aren't these new digs nice? I mean - REALLY sharp? If you find this new appearance easy on the eyes, it is all due to the loving labors of Honeybell of The Bell Pages. She had this thing up in no time flat. It's probably going to take a little time for the feeds to straighten out - 'Recent Comments' is a little goofy at the time of this writing - and we will probably tweak things a bit over the next few days - but this will be it for the foreseeable future.

I had thought to publish a photo or two and go wordless for this particular day - but with the transition to the new format here - well, I didn't want to do anything to draw attention away from wonderful look that Honeybell has created for me.

This is her Art - for which I will repay her with a piece of MY Art. She says 'No'. But I'm going to do it anyway. Because I really like my new digs. A lot.

She did this for me
A brand new look and feel here
Thank you Honeybell.

I love this, your Art
An expression, just for me
Thank you, Honeybell.

I will treat it well
Use it as it should be used
Thank you, Honeybell.


And, to top it all off, the systems which have been making me so crazy have finally (it seems), FINALLY been properly repaired and everything is back to normal. (Knock wood) So yesterday, although certain elements of the day were a little tense, by and large it was one helluva good day. Thank you, Honeybell.

I'm ready to have your children now.

I like the new look quite a lot. :)

Ashlie- Mommycosm said...

Love it! Very masculine, but not all dark and gloomy. Perfect.

Eric S. said...

I like it Lou, soft and easy on the eyes. Honeybell did a fine job. I was shocked at first, and then I thought You know that's a good way to start the new year out, with a fresh change of appearance. Kind of like having your shoes polished or hair cut. but more like a makeover as seen on TV, LOL.

Have a good day

warriorwitch said...

Now that's a thought I like - A man producing the baby.
You can have the stretch marks and all that other icky stuff.

calicobebop said...

Love the new digs!

M+B said...

Oh very nice digs! And oh so man-ly :-)

Kim said...

Oh Lou!! I love it.. I could not get here last night, and could not wait to get to work to see the new place!!

Wonderful job!!

Honeybell said...

Oh my. Flattery will get you everywhere!

I'm SO glad you like it!

maggie's mind said...

This looks so awesome! It's nice having new digs, isn't it? I look forward to seeing this view when I read. :)

hockeychic said...

Nice new look! Glad the software issues seem to have worked themselves out!

Emily/Randomability said...

Looks VERY sharp :)

Indigo said...

Love the new look dear one! Ah yes, I'm back online. Apparently I knew more than I imagined. The computer geek was quite impressed when I gave him a detailed list of what I needed done and in what format. As he read it off, Paul stood there with this blank look on his face. It was a moment of triumph. Now if only I could of fixed the problems without the added expense I would of being delighted. Thank you dear one for offering to help with any foreseeable problems. In the future I just may take you up on that.

The new look is definitely warm and inviting. (Hugs) Indigo

Suzanne: It's like Irish Spring - "And I like it, too."

Jientje: Oh, there will be pictures forthcoming. Promise.

Huckdoll: Yes, she has, hasn't she? I am so pleased she volunteered and so pleased I had sense enough to say "Go ahead."

Karen: thanks. Me likey, too.

Myst_72: Thank you, Gina. I am SO happy with this.

Shadow: There is nothing weird about cuddling. Or wanting to. Especially with me.

Tiff: Oh, thank you, Tiff. Honeybell has done a FABULOUS job.

Rebecca: Why, thank you, ma'am. And glad you got your car fixed - cause otherwise you'd be all cranky and stuff. But you're not and I'm glad. :)

Ashlie: I'm glad you like it - and I'm so happy that Honeybell didn't make me all dark and gloomy - because (most of the time) I'm not.

Eric S: Lord only knows I could use a makeover - and maybe a trip to the fat farm, too. But thanks, Bud.

Warriorwitch: I'll take the stretch marks and all that other icky stuff if I can have the great looking boobs, too. It'll make it way more fun to look in the mirror.

Calicobebop: Thanks. Me, too. Really.

M+B: Yeah. I like the manly part. Do you want to cuddle, too?

Kim: Thank you, so much, Kim. But all I had to do with the way it looks was to give Honeybell free rein. She ROCKS.

Honeybell: Like it? LIKE IT??? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!

Maggie's Mind: Thanks, Maggie. It looks so nice - I am just SO happy with it. My Honeybell has just done wonders here. Well, actually, she's Mr. Bell's Honey, but you know what I mean.

Hockeychic: Me too - although it was hardware and not software that was beating me up. But all is well, now. Thank you, hockeychic.

Emily: Thank you, Emily. Now - if Milton Bradley will just keep his head on straight - we got it licked.

LceeL said...

Indigo: Thank you, so much. Warm and inviting is EXACTLY what I was looking for - and that just what Honeybell gave me.

nicole said...

Hawwwwww!
I was shocked here for a second.
Thought: wrong blog.
But then I saw the paint brush ;)

Love it!

queenlint1 said...

Lou, you darling!

It looks absolutely handsome! And of course you'd 'do' something in return.

Jennifer said...

OH!! and I'm so happy to hear you are finally catching a break at work and that things seem fixed the right way now. I did knock on wood while reading this post... just to make sure they stay that way!!

xoxoxo

Julie said...

Lou, I love your new look. Very zen. And Artistic.

I still am rather bothered by aspects of the Bald Eagle feeding -- I think it is wrong for people to feed wild animals just for our enjoyment. But it is so amazing to see these eagles up close like this that I am sure I will be going back to watch this again.

Plus I got those amazing photos. That in itself is enough to draw me back to the feedings.

And at least she is feeding the eagles appropriate food -- raw fish and raw meat. No fillers and by-products...

I dunno. Still iffy environmentally, I know.

Bama Cheryl said...

Your new digs are great! Congratulations! Honeybell is certainly a honey!

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Whoa, Lou! Is this really you? :) Looks great!

Joyce-Anne said...

I love the new look!! Hooray for you and hooray for Honeybell!

LceeL said...

Nicole: Nope. Right place. So glad you like it.

Queenlint1: Glad you like it. And yes - I'll do a piece for her.

Hyphen Mama: You came to the right place, alright. I am so glad you like it. Honeybell did SO well.

AFF: Yes, I feel comfy and at home here. And so should you.

Jennifer: Thank you, Jennifer. Love for me? I'm not so sure about that!! Maybe she likes me a little. And yes, things are much better at work.

Julie: Thank you, Julie. I like that. Zen.

Bama Cheryl: Yes, she is a Honey, isn't she?

HollyATOM: Yup. Really me - well, as portrayed by Honeybell anyway - but it fits.

Joyce-Anne: Thank you, so much. Honeybell is a STAR!!

Loraine: You're one of mine, Loraine. I'll be there.

Wow Lou, this looks fantastic! It totally suits you too!

(haha, this comment thing totally confused me and I commented under my husband's google account, oops!)

Tara R. said...

ooohhh....aaahhhhh! This is so fancy and stuff. I love this new look. Honeybell did an awesome job.

Melissa said...

Nifty! And it doesn't make your butt look big at all!

LaskiGal said...

You look mah-ve-lous!

Seriously, this is so YOU.

Thanks so much for your concern. You are an absolute gem . . . do you know that. I'm just in recovery mode for the holidays. And, if you catch the most recent post, you'll know how I've been spending my time. And no worries. My walls are fine. For now. :)

Tracey said...

I did a double take to make sure I was at the right place! Looks nice. I love blog updates and have been thinking of doing it myself....

Employee No. 3699 said...

Honeybell did a great job; this is so you. This canvas background with its intertwining threads reminds me of how you have become intertwined with, and such a part of, so many of our lives.

The Hotfessional said...

Awesome. And awesome more. I am loving the colors...it looks like my bedroom. _wink_

Lady Language said...

Wow! Nice digs man :-) I was shocked at first to see you in unfamiliar surroundings, but am getting used to it.
