New & Improved? Yes :D

Hello Everyone!
I've updated my blog. Trying and new look. It's the finicky graphic designer in me. Let me know if you like it or not. I've titled my blog Seven Tulips because we are a family of seven and my favorite flower is a tulip. Simple right? I've added a new closing signature to my blogs. It's gone from Live Well, to Live Well Acts 20:24 and now to Love God Love People Matthew 22:35-41. I hope you like the new look.

I've updated my format too. I just made it 20 Questions to answer. I probably won't follow this with every post but it's something to get me thinking about things. I know it can be a go to when I'm frustrated and need to focus on good things. So there you have it :)

1. How are you feeling? I'm feeling rather accomplished. Somewhat  I've still got a ton of things to do on my "job board" but getting my blog updated has been on my mind. So it's one thing that... actually wasn't on my list of things to do but it got done.

2. How is/was the weather today? Cold and rainy. It wasn't too bad but it sure wasn't my favorite kind of weather. It makes me want to be lazy and sleep the day away.

6. What things did you notice needed a change today?
My morning routine, and my nightly "got to stay up and get this done" routine. I need a better morning routine and an earlier night routine.

7. What things in the news made you happy? Um, well... I didn't read or watch the news but my husband brought up some Egyptian biblical historical facts that were rather interesting. Joseph may have been Imhotep.  Imhotep was the first named architect who built Egypt's first pyramid.

8. What did you wear today? I wore a black t-shirt and jeans. Creative I know.
