Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

A change of attire for my blog!

Phew! After plenty of trials, I dressed up my blog in a formal outfit, rather than a casual one. I realized I get tired of colorful layouts faster than the no-frills layouts. So at least for a while, this is it for me. Thanks to my best friend, Piyush for helping me choose! I'm pretty happy with this one, but I *might* change the header image sometime in the future, though I'm not going to focus obsessively on it.

Other than that, I did make a few minor superficial changes (I know I should have participated in the Bloggiesta, but well, better late than never!) I'm glad I got this done, since if I get bugged by something, that something unnecessarily takes rent in my head till I get it done. Also, I've decided to add a WOW factor to the books I read, which I will tag to those books that, well, make me go wow, irrespective of their ratings!

Anyways, what do you think? Does the layout feel clearer and nicer than it was? Or did I confuse you more?

This looks great! I've been struggling with my layout desires lately as well. I really like what you've done here.
I love the new layout! It's simple and easy to navigate, which are things that I love to see when visiting blogs.

I love the look; it is easy on the eyes and doesn't have a lot of distractions. Great job!
I like the clean look! Very crisp. It always feels to good to change things up a bit.
