Snowflakes And Stuff

I am trying to do some minor blog changes and I think I have somehow made things worse.  Do y'all see the little tool icons all over the place?  Oh please tell me I am not seeing things.  How do I get rid of them.  I have no idea when or why they appeared, but they look so odd and out of place.

Overall I think I am doing a crappy job of making my blog look better.  So that's just swell. 

But sitting in bed, blogging and watching the snow fall is sort of nice.  Not exactly a rockin' Friday night but then again, none of my Fridays are rockin'.  The pretty snowflakes are a bonus.


Just to be clear, I LOVE watching snow fall. 

And love seeing the snow right when it is finished, all sparkly and white and fluffy and perfection.

But a few days later, when it is all dirty and ugly on the side of the road and turning into puddles that I step in and the dog steps in...  Our mutual adoration, for me and snow, fades.  Snow and I have two night stands.  We love with full passion and then wince at each other's sight.

But's love. 

If only I could stop wrecking my blog.  Make it look pretty.  Figure out how to make some fonts larger.  Remove those tool things. 

I'm pretty sure if I go get hot cocoa it will greatly improve matters...

Don't see the little tool thingies, that's just for the 'owner'...and we are getting more snow too...but i still feel like a kid when it comes, all cozy and protected somehow and "off" from daily is the south, y'know!

The tools are only there for you to edit your blog. We don't see them. To see how it looks without them, just log out of blogger and then view your page.

It's coming along nicely, I love the bright colors! Hang in there!

(and feel free to email me if you need any help!)

You are fine! The tool icons are only visible to you when you are editing the layout of your blog. :)

I feel the exact same way about snow. It's only beautiful for so long, then it's just slushy dirt.

Y'all are awesome! Thanks so much for all the words of advice. Glad to know the tool things are just on my end- whew!

And Karen, be careful. I remember how the South shuts down with only a few flakes. Those roads get slick!

The tools you see are not visible to the reader. Under settings you probably checked "show quick editing on your blog?" this is the reason the tools are visible to you, but it's a good thing.
I want to make changes to my blog too so I can relate. Good Luck.

Your blog is looking great! I like the small changes that you made.

I don't see the tool things.
I like snow when it is falling and not sticking. They are predicting 4-8 inches of snow starting tomorrow afternoon and people are freaking out. I hope I find the things I need at the store this morning.

The snow tonight in VA was so much fun. I was not expecting to wake up for 1.5" at my house! I was so surprised!

BTW, You have offish been added to my blog follow list (clicked the button on your page!). Thanks for commenting on my blog!

I think the tools are only for you to edit things ;) Watching snow fall sounds wonderful, I am so jealous! I cant ever get my blog to look like I want either, I see other have things, and I have no idea how to get them, sad since I am a computer person, ha!

If you're still working on this and need help, let me know! I've done a lot of work on mine and would be happy to share what I've learned along the way :-)
