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.
