Seeing Red

Oh, My! I Almost Forgot!


Everywhere you look spring is making inroads, as flowers push through the earth, leaves green up the branches, and blossoms come forth adding spots of color to the landscape. Of course, this means snow!


 Man oh man, it was cold yesterday. The temperature barely hit 40 and snow flurries skittered across the sky throughout the day.  The jonquils were flattened by a couple of inches of snow, and while they do bounce back, it's sad to see.  Today is replay of yesterday, except that it's the first day of spring(!) and blue skies are taking over. We hear it will be 70 by weeks end, so spring is doing its best to send winter packing.


Today IS cause for celebration, although the celebration should have been March 1st. That's the day I started blogging 8 years ago! If not for Vicki's post today, who is also celebrating 8 years, the anniversary may have never entered my head. Here's the stats:

Total posts: 1962
Total Comments: 63,337
Total Friends: HUNDREDS!! You make my heart sing!

Vicki says, 4 more years!  I guess, I'll second that. It's hard to imagine giving this up, although posting is, and will be, more sporadic. Blogging has become a part of who I am and I'll stick with it as long as I'm willing and able.

Since the comments aren't anywhere near a nice round number, I'll pick two random comment winners and, if they reach 63400, I'll give away a third prize.  Bloggiversaries mean prizes for you!  Thank for you reading, my friends!!  Winner's will be drawn and annouced Friday afternoon.


It's 8 years for me as well, although in January or February. Hard to believe. Your post about not being in blogging mind hit home with me. My Typepad bill is due next week and I'm debating. It is hard to imagine giving it up, but just as hard to remember to blog about something these days.

Congratulations! You have kept one of the best blogs around and I don't say that because you are my friend. Love you!

(I don't need anything-give the prizes to other people)

Happy blogiversary!!!

I'm sure we have more snow in our future, but our temps have been hovering in the upper 60s to 80 for the past week...

I just can't imagine my life without these connections, even if some have grown tenuous. Eight years! So much as happened!! Life's in constant flux and that's certainly true in this realm

Happy blogiversary, Margene!

I started my blog 7 years ago on January 12th! Not that I've kept it up like you, but by golly I'm still paying monthly for it not to disappear. :)

Love you Margene! So glad to know you and feel like part of your blogging history!

Happy Spring!

8 years! That's an accomplishment, Margene, and I consider myself so blessed to be your friend!

Happy, happy. I love reading your blog and it mirrors my knitters moods a lot of the time.

Mazal Tov! - A belated happy anniversary to you. I am so glad you are blogging :)

Those are really impressive numbers - Go Margene!

Keep warm and don't let the snow bring your spirit down.


Happy Blogiversary!
The weather is trending towards more rain, which is good - we need it, but bad in that I really have the spring itch and want it here now. ah well.

I'm so glad that I've found your blog this past year.

Happy Blogiversary. I always look forward to your posts - your blue skies - and your virtual friendship. Congratulations on 8 wonderful years. Here's to many, many more!

Congrats on the 8 years. I so like reading your posts that I hope you keep them coming for far more than 4 more years!

Congratulations, Margene! Eight years is quite an accomplishment.

Wishing you blue skies and springtime! I enjoy your blog and wish you four more great years of missives!

Happy blogiversary!

Happy Blogiversary! Not only do you post the beautiful Utah skies (so I know what weather to expect soon) but I've enjoyed watching the evolution of the garden in addition to the knitting, et al. Thanks!

Happy Blog! Spring, today? Meh. Hope we don't freeze to death. xo!

I love your blog and have been reading it for 6 years!! Keep up the good work. Your shawls were my inspiration to knit one.

Congratulations, Margene! I always enjoy reading your blog!

Happy Blogiversary!

I love reading your blog and seeing your pictures of your gorgeous corner of the world.

I'm fairly new to knitting (3 years or so), and I'm really enjoying reading the best of the knitting blogs -- for inspiration, laughter, enjoyment. And your blog is right up there. Congrats.

Love your blog Margene! I'm a long time reader and I await your new posts and especially your gorgeous photos of Utah. It's a long way from NJ to Utah...but your lovely blog makes me feel like we're next door neighbors! Keep posting...you inspire all of us

Congratulations! Your blog was one of the first I found when I started knitting and discovered knitting blogs at the same time in the early 2000s. Thanks for being a warm, gentle presence in my internet knitting world.

8 years? Don't know that I've been reading that long, but close to it. I enjoy your knitting and your thoughts.
It's almost 80 degrees here near Pittsburgh & believe it or not, that's not a record. I hope there's no snow in our forecast to flatten our daffodils & forsythia.
Looking forward to at least 4 more years!

I know I haven't been reading you for 8 years as I only caught on to this blog about 6 years ago, but you are one of the first blogs I found and one I consistently read, if that means anything to you. Keep it up please?

Bring IT ON - 4 more years of you? All good. :)

How many years ago was it you and Smith volunteered to go drive around and look at houses for us before we moved from VT?

Congratulations! I have really enjoyed your blog, especially the glorious sky pictures since they are a window to something I don't see around here.

We've been having 70 degree weather here in the Boston area, everything is popping out, and I am not convinced we have seen the last of the snow either.
