2 years in JLand

 

                    

Today 2 years ago I started my journal ~ never thought at the time how addictive this was going to be ~ but it is part of my daily life now ~ Although I don't do an entry every day I always like to comment on the journals that I read  daily ~

I just wanted to thank all of you who read and comment and to tell you how much I appreciate you dropping by ~

The weather has been pretty awful here ~ it is dry today and Lyn is in the Garden doing a bit of clearing up ~ after all the wind and rain                   

Lets hope Summer is on it's way I think we could all do with a little bit of sunshine ~ and for those who have too much sunshine I hope you get the rain you so badly need ~

Congratulations on your 2 yr anniversary. What a special day! I remember when I hit my 2 yr mark, I couldn't believe how much time had gone by. Again, congrats!

Happy Anniversary.  Then you started yours, shortly after I started mine.  Now we're getting the rain here in western Washington.  And with it...65-70 degree temperatures, which will make everything (including the weeds) grow like they were in a hot house.  It cleared yesterday for awhile but is just pouring this morning.  I think Summer came and forgot to bring it's traditional weather with it.  At least the rain is allowing me to get some things done indoors.  Congrats again...and may you have many more years of journaling.   Linda in Washington state

Happy 2year Anniversary Ally, the time does go quickly here in J-Land!  I love the photo that your friend did for you, it looks so inviting.  Jim and I have been on gardening detail this afternoon too,  my poor plants have taken quite a battering from Fridays deluge.

Love Sandra xxxx

Modest Ally, as reliasble as the Sun and Stars,
and as serene as the stars, may possibly not
give herself credit for all her contributions to
J-Land in the realm of calmness, stability, dignity,
and as if following the good ol' rule ' If you don't
have anything nice to say don't say anything.'
What I'd particularly like to publically thank you
for Ally, is commenting on my journal even when
nobody else did!  Ha ha ha ha. I think you see my
better side, for which I love you.

I'm coming up to my two year anniversary. There are times when life got so hectic I considered stopping but there are a number of family who look forward to it, so I carried on and most of the time its a pleasure to do, rather than a chore.

Sun is shining frim a clear blue sky this morning but they say the rain is back tomorrow, last thing we need here in Worcester!!

Linda.
