Happy Blogiversary to me

Celebrating a decade of blogging today, with a Haagen Dazs ice cream bar. Not even the flavor I like, but beggars can't be choosers.  I need dark chocolate but don't have any.  Back to the point: I wrote my first post on January 31, 2005 as a thinking-out-loud-while looking at a shot of something I was working on.  TEN years - where has it gone? (rhetorical). It doesn't matter where it has gone, it has vanished. Evaporated. Disappeared - never to be gotten back. 

I should do a giveaway in honor of my blog's longevity, but since I don't have anything in Fla to give away, that idea seems a bit lame.

Tonight, just for the heck of it, I'm posting what has been sitting on my Florida design wall.  It started as a couple of nine patches and I've been playing with it.  I should probably just stick a fork in it but I won't because it doesn't quite come together.  Too much chaos - like the couple of weeks i've just had.
Still no Internet on my mac and intermittently on my ipad.  Between that frustration and the Sears service tech I threw out of my apartment because he was a screaming, raving, nasty lunatic and a few other aggravations, I am DONE. 

Tomorrow, as I start my 11th year of blogging, I will pay bills, go for a walk, and maybe do some therapy sewing.  Monday, someone is coming to fix my brand new Bosch non-working dishwasher, and the electrician will be here again to move ceiling lights he put in the wrong place.  I am expecting a few more things to go wrong before the week is out.  Stay tuned:-))  And thanks for being there for so long.

OMG! I have mine next month. I think I have been following you for that long, too! Congrats. Sounds like Florida is not the home of best customer service!

Happy Blogversary Rayna. I hope the next fortnight turns out better than the last one. Here's to the next ten years :-)

I hope all goes well with the repairs and such next week. Nothing worse than bad customer service, that's for sure.
Happy 10th! I think I started following you in 2007, but I agree time just flies, especially when you're having fun! Thanks for sharing so much in your blog... always enjoyable to read and inspirational too!

Congratulations on 10 years of blogging! I think after that long we should be sending you something to celebrate, rather than the other way around.
