We have this amazing sunflower growing in our vegetable garden that just keeps reaching for the sky. We don't know how it got there -- it is not in our regular sunflower patch that is on the other side of the yard; plus it is twice as big as those plants. Some bird must have done his magic and transplanted the seed last summer.
I had our rather tall granddaughter, Caitlin, stand by it so you could see just how magical it is!!
I have a blog anniversary coming up in a week or so. In the past, I haven't mentioned blog anniversaries; but five years seems rather momentous in the blog world.
My blog is rather simple -- no web designer, no sponsors, no branding consultant, no income -- just a disparate assembly of things, ideas, and people that are important to us and the way we live. What you see is what you get! I began blogging in July 2008 as a way to journal our lifestyle and document our ancestor's belongings for our kids, grandkids, and their descendants. (I'm not sure they will be interested down the line, but just in case!) I had no idea I had this much to say; and that I would still be blogging five years later. My posts are far from thought provoking or sometimes are not even well thought out; but I hope it comes through just how much I love God, my family, and my home!
We all blog for different reasons. My reason was strictly for my personal enjoyment; and I'm sure not always of public interest. I'm just not into 'growing my blog' or making money from it. I'm retired -- and tired of thinking about money, accomplishments, ambition, etc. etc. and all that accompanies those efforts. I've considered making my blog private, or a 'no comment' blog, or not joining in the blog parties held each week. But frankly, I've really enjoyed the interaction I've had with other bloggers -- something that was unexpected on my part. Thanks to all of you.
Will I continue to blog and for how long? I don't have a clue. As long as I enjoy it, and have something to say that I think my descendants would be interested in; I suppose I will.. And hopefully, whoever reads my blog will also find something interesting about our lifestyle and the people and things that inhabit our home.
So, for now, I'll continue to party on--
