That was Ralph’s comment on Monday regarding the 20th anniversary of us being together. It was an honest question…Should we look at those 20 years as a milestone to be celebrated or a millstone around our necks? That’s an old phrase but very clever, as he always is! 🙂 I told him it was a milestone…the jury is still out on his opinion. 😉
Today marks another milestone and for me I believe it is something to be celebrated. You are at the moment reading my 200th post on Broken Cookies Don’t Count!!! I am quite proud of that accomplishment. I had no clue what I was doing when I started. Many thanks to Kristen always for sharing her idea and helping me along the way. She is the best!
I’m not sure what will come of all this. I am happy I stuck with it this long and I hope to continue in spite of the fact that there is renewed consternation surrounding food photos. 😦 Ah, Well… In an effort to keep up my enthusiasm for the project, I joined NaBloPoMo…National Blog Posting Month for the month of July.
Still haven’t figured out how to attach it to the face of the blog, but then I still can’t figure out how to attach MY face to the face of the blog!! Frustrating but it surely is all a learning process. I’m enjoying that. I like the idea of advancing my knowledge of computer thingys. Every step gets me there.
Thursday is the day we finally got to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-PartII. It was well worth the wait.
It was SO hot outside, I didn’t even want to stand too long to get a photo which is why this one is pretty bad.
I successfully convinced Ralph that I was not having any snacks and that he should not nag me to get anything. He bought me a cold water, which was sweet of him, but I didn’t drink any until after because I didn’t want to miss anything by having to go to the Ladies’ Room!! I could NOT believe how expensive it was for the snacks he did buy!
The movie was everything I was hoping it would be. They edited the story where necessary and tied everything up nicely. I thought for a moment they were going to leave out the epilogue (Long pause) but then “19 years later” appeared on the screen and I was completely satisfied. Some people actually walked out before it continued. They must not have read the book!
I’m off to exercise now before it gets too hot! I need to do a produce run too. I’m enjoying my salads so much, especially with the grilled up veggies on them, I need to stock up for the weekend. Hoping to get Ralph more into the idea of salads. He’s doing well, but I need to figure out some more choices for him.
Lots of mundane around the house things to do today: laundry, change the sheets on the bed, do some more work in the basement…and think about what I might possibly have to say in post 201. I like that idea.
Don’t melt out there!! Happy Friday!! Happy 200th post to Me!!
