...just hanging out...

So how is everyone making out with the new Blogger in Draft Interface?  I've finally found many things I thought were missing in it, but have to say I do not enjoy how many of the functions are hidden in drop-down menus.  Plus, if you have more than one blog it is really awkward to find and post your comments.  Things seem to take longer to load and I have encountered "Service Unavailable - Error 503" several times.  What about you?   Are there features you really like?  Are there things you haven't figured out yet?  I'd be very interested to hear what you think about it!  Do tell ...

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer weekend.  Well, it is beautiful, perfect in fact, here in the Northeast, but I did notice that there are some scorching temps in the central and southern States.  Hope you all manage to stay cool and find an inviting spot where you can just relax. 

What is better for pure relaxation than a hammock?

This hammock is strung between two large shade trees and is just a couple of yards from a babbling brook. 

Same hammock with a couple of textures and processed in PSE to achieve a vintage look.

I'll be checking for your comments on the new Blogger in Draft Interface - when I'm not in the hammock!  ;-)


  1. ahh...would not mind a trip in the hammock...

    blogger is frustrating to say the least...the reader on the dashboard has not been working great...the 503 error is annoying and coming up way too much...

    ps. thanks for visiting the poems yesterday...your art was a hit!

  2. Personally, I'll wait to deal with the new Blogger until I must. Not real excited though.
    The hammock is much more inviting than Blogger in whatever phase it may happen to be in.

  3. Ha.. I've got a different looking hammock ready to post at midnight. Believe it or not, I'm still using the OLD Blogger.. so I've not had a look at the recent changes at Blogger in Draft yet.

    Strangely enough the word verification is "bedsepea" which is almost "bed sepia" which is almost what your treated image is. ;)

  4. Beautiful job with the hammock picture! It looks like its in one of those fairytale gardens. Beautiful. Thank You for sharing _B

  5. Thanks for your comments. I have just returned to the old dashboard and am feeling much happier!

  6. You really know how to hang out in a very stylish way. I'm not sure why, but it brought to mind the gorgeous painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat.

  7. that vintage look is an invitation to relax ...

  8. It's been slow going - don't know whether to blame Blogger or the wi-fi where we are currently staying.

    That hammock is so inviting. I'd love to take a nap there!

  9. Delightful, truly, I'd take both of them, ha! Ha, I may have been hanging out there too much in fact I hadn't noticed anything new in blogger... now I must go check out what I've either ignored or somehow just haven't activated yet or something :)
