Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from me to you :)

Christmas bow

It has been 30 weeks since I started my blog, and in that time my blog site has had more than 3,600 hits.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. And thank you for all the lovely (and sometimes funny) comments that have been left.

Blogging has certainly been a learning curve and in the early days I spent hours agonizing over what to write. At times I sat looking at a blank screen just willing something to come… Other times I wrote, deleted, wrote again and deleted again, then sat looking at the empty screen. Yet at other times I had so many ideas they were sitting in calendar just waiting for post time. I have really enjoyed blogging, and have made some lasting friendships. Next time we go to Texas, we will be calling in on a new friend, and I have an invitation to stay from Italy and the UK if I ever end up there. 

Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me. Through the eyes of other bloggers, I have seen whales frolic off the coast, I’ve driven down lonely highways through Kansas. I’ve looked out over a bay in Italy and packed up a house in Seattle :) I know more Texas history than I did a year ago, and I’ve collected more recipes than I have a hope of making. It’s been a wonderful ride.

 Next year I may have to drop down to one post a week as I face more medical appointments and surgery while keeping up with my Tate Publishing commitments and my local school activities. 

Thank you one and all, for being part of my blog family, and I’ll see you in 2013.

A thought to end the year: It is choice, not chance, that determines our destiny.
