Spring Brings New Life

Both to the world and to the blog.There has been so much to be thankful for this year already. From the birth of my grandson, to having only minor storm damage done. Black Iris’s are about to pop open (I can’t wait to get photos of them fully opened), strawberries coming along nicely, along with the rest of the garden. Horses are looking good, and feeling good.  I felt it was also time to give Cloud 9 Ranch Blog a new look and feel.

Okay, so truth be told, I totally messed up my other theme on WP, so I have started from scratch. All new colors, a new header, and a whole new look. Don’t fret, I still have more work to do. Nothing like getting a fresh new look to help brighten things up a bit.

I am proud to say that I made the header myself, with my easy little Infranview program. It’s awesome for working with images, and I sometimes forget just how much this little program can do. Although, I do still want to add some personal images to the header. I think it is a good start.  I know the program works on all OS up to and including Windows 7. I started using Infranview several years ago, on my XP OS, and it works just as good on the 7. There is also a plugin you can get that allows you to do even more. I just haven’t downloaded it, so not sure how it works, or what it will allow me to do. Maybe tomorrow I will get a chance to do just that. OH! Did I mention the program is free to download?

I’ve change the theme to Mystique,,  a WordPress theme, for those interested in checking it.  Because it offers a lot of variations, from the background color to the tabs, and is very easy to work with. Of course, I’m sure it can be customized even further, if you know your stuff. Since I’m still learning CSS and how it all works, I’ll leave that part to the experts. After I created my header in Infranview, I just uploaded it to the theme in the Mystique Setting

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter and enjoy your family.
