My first post...regurgitated.
The SITS girls are hosting a week long Back to Blogging event, with a washer and dryer set as a prize!
The contest is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliance.
Since I am such a HorRIBly inconsistent blogger, I'm going to participate in Back to Blogging Day to get myself in the groove. Goodness knows I don't have any kind of groove, not anything even resembling a groove, but maybe I'll get a little bit of a beat this week.
So, I'll start by regurgitating - uh, I mean revisiting - my very first blog post on April 25, 2007. Wow, that seems so long ago! There were no pictures because I didn't know how to load them yet, and I didn't have anything to write about, but I had two comments! Woo-hoo! My husband, who critiqued the post, and my friend who called him a stinker for critiquing my post. It's been a fun, if often sporadic, journey since then. Here it is, freshly regurgitated just for you:
Birds of a Feather...or the Early Bird gets The Worm!
I woke up before sunrise this morning to the most amazing sound of dozens of birds twittering back and forth to each other. I couldn't believe how loud they were! I'm not sure why they were all out there, but my best guess is they were after all the little wormies that might be above ground after the big storm last night.
We had lots of lovely thunder and lightning, had to even make sure the computers were all unplugged-just in case! My parents have had a couple of lightning issues with their computers in the past.
Emily had her house ready in case of frightened family hunkering down in her basement during the tornado watch until 2a.m. this morning. We didn't end up over there, but it's nice to know we have an alternative spot to the smelly basements of the Presbyterian or Baptist churches in town. Not that I wouldn't be happy to be in those basements in case of actual tornadic action, mind you!
Thought I'd take this early morning time to actually start my blog that I've been threatening to start for a while now. Also thought this could be a good way to keep in touch will those of you far away. Keep checking back! I want to update this often, and maybe I'll have some surprise guest bloggers on once in a while!
***It's me in real time again. So, maybe I didn't keep the "I want to update this often", but I have had a guest blogger, my daughter "Nutella". She writes a pretty good post, too.
So buh-bye for now, I'll be write back tomorrow!
