Has it really been a year since I started this blog with just a few cat stories in mind, along with a lot of fear and trepidation? Well, yes it has! And a wonderful journey it has been! I am honestly pleased (and somewhat surprised) to have made it this far and am happy to have you along for the ride!
So on this anniversary of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales, with post number 134 (in case you were keeping track), it seemed good to reflect on where we’ve been together. First, did you ever wonder about the name? I chose it because as the song goes, “these are a few of my favorite things!”
It’s no secret I love them. When I started this blog a year ago, I only had one cat in residence: the handsome Tiger, who had some things to say. He is still talking.
Then there were two. We brought home Benji from Seattle Humane Society as a companion for Tiger. It turns out Benji has something to say as well.
I love watching them individually and together. They truly enjoy their cat life.
I love to hike (though the trails are getting shorter) and I love to travel to places both far and near. In this part of the blog I try to convey the beauty of the Pacific Northwest where I live.
as well as the beauty of these United States of America, and sometimes distant lands.
Finally, I love gardening and I love gardens. I love to share pictures of my own,
and those I visit.
Throw in some rain, a few sunsets and other reflections on life and you’ll have a good idea of where we’ve been.
Yes, I am still learning. Learning to write. Learning photography. Learning how to use the blogging technology. It’s worth the effort. So here’s to another year of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales. Thank you so much for following along.
