Having spent too many hours yesterday in the intense yellow-orange sunshine, this has left my fair Irish (half) complexion a bit on the crimson side. While marveling at the billowy white clouds and enjoying this most perfect day, whimsy ensued causing me to wish for a new blog background. So, I changed it. The other was beginning to seem rather drab to me, especially on these scenic summer days. I'm still tinkering with it; however, so far I am keen on this change. It befits me.
In case you’re curious (and you should be), the word whimsy dates to the 1600s. As a noun, it means a fanciful concept, especially in writing. Not such a common word by today's standards, but you can find it in The Scarlet Letter. Hmm. I see a recurring theme with colors today!
