Happy Birthday! You’re HOW Old?

Happy Birthday to all those leap year babes out there!

Hope you’re enjoying yourselves, since your birthdays now come less frequently than the Olympics!

First Flowers of Spring

As if I needed further proof this was an incredibly mild winter…

Last year’s crocus post was March 13th. And I discovered that not only did the rosemary survive the winter–so did the parsley.

Walking Around Morgantown: Downtown

It was another gorgeous Sunday. Only saw one other person with a camera, however.

While looking for items for the scavenger hunt, we came across a couple of these:

Yeah. Maybe repainting signs doesn’t work as well as they thought it would.

A Random Decade

I realized that it’s been ten years since I started keeping a blog. (Obviously, I realized this in the past, and am writing it for the future, but not too far in the past.)

I can’t claim that I’ve been diligent and written every day, but I do believe that for the most part (once I really started it) I’ve posted at least once a week for the entire time.

Yeah, some of the most recent posts are pictures and not writing, which is perhaps not quite right for what was supposed to be a writing exercise, but this turned into something very different from how it started, which was simply for a place to me to record my thoughts.

The first post I wrote was primarily about the courses I was taking at the time: The Faiths of Abraham and Women in Islam. Both classes were fantastic and also educational in many different ways.

At this point, Michael and I had been home owners for about six months, and were regularly doing a lot of work on the house. It had been almost three years since my Dad’s cancer diagnosis, and Grandmom was still in Baltimore.

Please note that when I started, I was simply writing in basic HTML, and adding new thoughts to the top of the page as they came to me. No indexes or even individual posts at that point.

Obviously, this changed within a year or so.
