My Favorite Pond
When I came to the park this time I went in behind a woman and her children. I waited for them to get far ahead of me so they wouldn't be afraid. It's not fun having a stranger walking closely behind you. About a third of the way through the park I greeted them as we passed each other on the trail. They were already leaving. I don't blame them because it's a long walk. But I was finally all alone.
Now that I had this park all to myself I could walk around at my leisure, examining everything around me. I could go on and off the trail. The presence of other people doesn't really matter that much, but I sometimes like my alone time, and I don't like to reveal my secret places.
Do you see the picture of my Ratty mouse face in the title bar at the top of your browser? It's called a "favicon". Usually there is an orange and white Blogger "B" there. Would you like to know how I changed that? Blogger has finally decided to make that a very simple thing for all of us.
To change that B to a picture of your own go to the Layout section in your Blogger dashboard. There you will see right at the top of your Page Elements section an extra block called Favicon. Click the Edit link and it will bring you to a window from where you can upload a good picture from your own computer that you can use as your very own favicon.
A little update: It sometimes takes about a day before your favicon appears in the top of your browser. I had forgotten about this last important part.
Here's a link to Blogger's post with more details about it: Latest Updates, August 1st
And here's another post about it from Icy BC: How To Install a Favicon On Your Blog
Let's get back to nature.
Actually that's not totally true. I saw a small family of ducks that quickly hid in the weeds as soon as I emerged from the forest. I also found some butterflies flitting around. Butterflies are usually much too fast to catch on camera, so I only try when they are obviously very slow.
I still stayed back there at that pond for quite awhile looking out at the landscape. I enjoyed my alone time, and I enjoyed being at the pod, one of my favorite places.
