Six months and 50 posts ~ but who’s counting?

Well I guess I am.  Counting that is.  I was an accountant after all, a long time ago in a galaxy, far, far away.  Now, enough of the numbers. The main reason I started this blog was to encourage myself to write and to have a fun place to do so. My goal was to publish one or two posts per week when I started last April.  I didn’t know if that was realistic or not but figured there was one way to find out. Say it. Jump in. Make it happen.  So I am happy to report that after six months in blog land (26 weeks if you want to know) I have met my humble goal and this will be post #51.

Now I must give credit to where credit is due, to my boys, the cats. You probably know them by now if you read this blog.  There’s Tiger the handsome 8 year old tabby, with all his charms, observations and cat life accounts.  He can be seen below. (Don’t you wish you could relax like that?)

My cats were and still are a source of inspiration for this blog and I will continue to report their ramblings and goings on, as well as the progress of their slow but budding brotherhood.  I will also share stories and pictures from our travels and road trips, of forests and mountains and parks and gardens. Such a big and beautiful world to explore!  I will also occasionally venture out into musing on life and words and memories and whatever else strikes my fancy!  That is the fun of having a blog!   So come along with me as the journey continues on cats and trails and garden tales.

  1. As a retired attorney, I can tell you that, in my experience, I have found it far more enjoyable to write about and photograph my cat Effie and her predecessor, my late cat Coolidge, and our various road trips and fishing expeditions close to home, than practicing law ever was. I think my cats and fishing have probably suckered me into the aesthetic realm to the point where I do not miss the beauty in the law’s presumptive logic at all.

    I appreciate that you have encouraged me to think about this, Susanne.

    • Hi Lauren. Thank you as always for your thoughtful comment! It’s funny because I enjoyed working in accounting and technology for many years.. until I didn’t enjoy it anymore.. Now I am grateful for the opportunity to explore the more creative side of life just as you are.. the blog pulls a lot of those things together for me 🙂 Susanne

  2. Thank you so much for your comment Pete. I really appreciate it. I’m very impressed that you and John are able to produce quality articles on an almost daily basis! And somehow make it look easy! You both inspired me with blogging. John suggested it to me when I told him I wanted to write; and he also told me to check out your blog which I did. I was sold. I continue to look forward to reading of your tales and travels from the English countryside. thanks, 🙂 Susanne
