Feeling Crabby

Yes, I know this is a CRAYFISH, but I'm a crab, LOL!

Blogger has gotten so much harder I almost don't want to bother with it at all. And that's just one of my problems. I'm still dealing with my mother's estate and while I was away, I got huge piles of snailmail and email, and I'm not caught up yet. I am feeling crabby about it all, so watch out! (To say nothing of canceled and multiply rescheduled and recanceled doctor's appointments and worse yet, the health issues behind them.)

Why did blogger make blogging harder and less user friendly than it was before? Any ideas?

It will be a while before I can blog regularly again, I'm so so far behind.

I did, however, post some new posts including some juvenalia self portraits and two newer ones, some of my father's paintings. I have written some "real" posts but haven't had time to download them yet.

An interpretation of feeling overwhelmed, On the Street, for Self-portrait challenge, One of the juvenalias (click home while there to see the rest), one of Pa's unfinished paintings (click home while there to see more), one of my new pieces (click home while there to see more--I think there are at least 4 new pieces).

I took the crayfish photo last night at the tiny beach along Lakeshore while walking with Biker Buddy.

I'm sorry you're struggling with the new Blogger. I enjoy it. Hopefully it gets easier as you get used to it.

Crayfish?!! Is it a kind of Lobster? I am huge Lobster fan! LOL

That crayfish does look huge!

The part about the new blogger that I struggled with was getting my header set up. After that it didn't seem any different. I hope you get used to it soon, you don't need another aggravation.

Welcome tricotine and thank you nadine, tricotine and berry bird for your comments!

That crayfish was huge, almost as big as a lobster, but it was no lobster, unless they have learned to live in fresh water!

Crayfish are edible, just like lobster, and quite yummy!

My headers (the few I had) translated OK, but Picasa doesn't work right and I have to resize all the pictures after changing their format--Picasa used to do all that automatically with the old blogger. It takes SO much more time for every single picture. Very disappointing.
