WordPress recently reminded me of an important milestone.
I first began blogging the year my husband was diagnosed with cancer for the second time. Our lives were turned upside down with the devastating news. To deal with the stress and disappointment I began posting about the daily adventures we experienced. All of the entries were made under a different blog address.
Not all anniversaries are greeted with enthusiasm. This one, even though it brings back all of the associated struggles, is a milestone to celebrate. I am overjoyed to report that my sweet, sweet partner is very much alive and kicking.
Cleaning the house can be a lot of work but it looks and feels so good when the task is complete. Every now and then I take a look at my blog to see what needs refreshing and what should be removed. Recently I updated a number of my documents and refreshed the appearance of my blog page. As a result of my efforts I think everything looks cleaner now and more organized.
Some of the items that were changed reside in the uppermost area of my page—often called the Menu. These items provide links to very important information that may not always be noticed. Here’s a list:
Many of the tasks (i.e. the gallery) took a great deal of time. The process of updating or adding my photos to the gallery created a lot of extra posts. You may have noticed a large number of them in your mailbox. I’m sorry if their volume was overwhelming. If I stay on top of this task the frequency of gallery posts should stay minimal. On the other hand the frequent posts not only took care of a housekeeping task but it also gave you another opportunity to see items that you may have missed.
I hope that you will have the opportunity to browse through some, if not all, of the Menu items. If you do I know you won’t be disappointed.
As always, thank you so much for sharing your time!
I’ve been sharing oldie but goodie blog posts that were filed under the category: garden. These posts contain a photo history of the flowers and characters that have lived in my garden. While the flowers are responsible for adding color and fragrance the other items add humor as well as a touch of rustic art to my surroundings. Please enjoy this excerpt from my past!

There’s nothing like a quiet moment nestled in nature. The aromas, the melodies of the air and the fragrance of the earth are what set my mind at rest and my muscles to relax. I have a small piece of nature in my very own yard. This small piece is home to a variety of flowers, bushes, trees and a few carefully chosen pieces of art. I would like nothing more than to share a piece of my world with you. Here’s a view from my window.
The beauty of flowers can brighten anyone’s day. I’ve been sharing oldie but goodie blog posts from my archives that include little glimpses into the landscape around me. These posts are from the garden category on my blog. Below is the post I have chosen to rewind today.

We’ve all worked and played very hard this week so let’s take a few moments to take a deep breath, release a big sigh and pause for refreshment. Here’s to you and all that you have accomplished!
The beauty of nature never grows old; that’s why I have been scrounging around in my archives for blog posts to feature in my rewind series. Each post I’ve selected features photos I’ve taken of the flowering blossoms found near my home. Even though I’ve previously shared theses photos I never grow tired of seeing them; if you are a nature lover I’m sure you would agree. Please enjoy this oldie but goodie!
In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.
No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.
