I don’t have any New Arrivals for you, but this is what’s blowing my mind:
This is the 5ooth post for this blog. It’s incredible to me that I can have done so many since I started. Sure, other bloggers do something every day and rack up much greater numbers in shorter time, but still, five hundred posts in 28 months, the first one was on August 28th, 2009 when I began this blog is a lot.
During those 28 months, we’ve moved from southern California to Portland, Oregon, gotten settled, had major landscaping work done, made new friends and re-established with old ones and Wife has retired. That doesn’t seem like much but it’s feels like it’s been an eventful time, and this blog has been an important part of it.
I’ve especially enjoyed doing the Friday Forgotten Books posts, thanks to Patti Abbott, the book reviews, and sharing our progress here with the move, unpacking, getting the book shelves built, the outside work. Hopefully there’ll be lots more to share in the future, in the next five hundred posts.
