One whole year

Who would have thought I would have stuck to blogging for a whole year? I often don't post every day either because I don't think I have anything interesting to say or because I simply don't have enough time. (kinda like running out of money before running out of month!)
The weekend was interesting. I worked on making new cushions for a chair - more on that in another post.
Mr. Wonderful had a high school reunion on Saturday. They had a 'get-together' at the park in the middle of the afternoon then the reunion Saturday evening. I don't know who's bright idea it was to spend two hours in the park, in the afternoon, in the middle of July in Texas! I told them the 'old folks' should have reunions in the fall. Dang but it was HOT. (then yesterday oldest kidlet had a message that they were trying to plan their 10yr reunion - obviously they are a little smarter and planning something in the fall!) Anyway - when we got home from the park we discovered there had been water issues up the road and we had dirty water - oh joy. (and after two hours at the park we both needed a shower!) Once we got through flushing the pipes and waiting for water to heat back up and we were ready to go, we figured out that the a/c wasn't working! Remember - this is July in Texas! Called and left a message for the repair guy and he finally made it out to fix it about 10:00pm (after hours and weekend!) One thing about having grown kidlets living at home is that one of them was here to meet the a/c guy while we went to the reunion. It was starting to cool back down by the time we got home. Yeah!

Okay - now for the good stuff. To celebrate my one year blogaversry I'm going to have a little give-away! A pincushion, pair of marking pins, and a scissor fob (with scissors!)



When I set this blog up I had originally thought I would do my first post on my birthday (frankly I thought it would be harder to set up and I thought I would need the extra days to figure it out - I still haven't figured it all out!) Anyway - I jumped the gun and posted my first post on the 15th so I will draw a name from all the comments on THIS POST. I will draw sometime Sunday (my birthday) afternoon.
I have met some wonderful people through blogging (a few I've even met in person!) It has been a lot of fun - I think I'll stick with it a while longer!
That is it for today!

I am glad blogging has worked out for you. I read your posts, I just don't always comment. One year WOW!! I was afraid to set up my own blog. It was easier than I thought.

You have such a lovely blog and you're such a talented stitcher! I'm glad that you're still at it and enjoying your experiences.

And I'd love to have my name put in the hat for a prize drawing, too!

Wow - one year - that is great. Our air conditioning is not working properly either and it is 96 degrees in Houston today. I am still waiting on air people to come check it out. Hope you have a great birthday.

Congrats on one year of blogging. That is quite an accomplishment. I am like you, I never thought I would last a year either. Many new and wonderful friends from blogging.

Now I know that we are kindred spirits. Our birthdays are even close together. Mine is the following Sunday after yours.

Thanks for offering a gift in hour of your blogging anniversary.

Your in my Favorites, too. I sure hope you continue to blog for years to come. I am a cross- stitcher who really gets more thinking about stitching done than actual stitching, so you inspire me. Have a wonderful birthday!
Annie/TX, too!
