2. I reached some significant blogging milestones this past week. On Wednesday I reminisced on my 201st post here at Sacred Ruminations and realized I'll be posting for the 300th time at Small Reflections tomorrow. I'm pleasantly surprised both by the 'body of work' displayed on my 3 blogs and the wonderful comments visitors have left along the way. I feel truly blessed.
3. I've managed to catch up on responses to comments for all but the last two days on each of my blogs, but hopefully I'll be able to respond to the rest tomorrow. I've been keeping my unread posts in Google Reader below 300 most days and have whittled down unread emails to less than 450.
4. I enjoyed watching a bit of tennis over the weekend as the men finished up their tournament in Cincinnati and the women completed theirs in Montreal. Interestingly, after Rafa Nadal won his quarter final match (paving the way to becoming ranked #1), he lost the semi-final to Novak Djokovic (who, in turn, lost the the Championship Match today). Thus, Andy Murray has won his first 'major' and Dinara Safina won her 2nd in a row, wrapping up the US Open Series and making her eligible for a huge bonus at the US Open Tournament itself.
5. As I've reorganized my photos on my new computer, I've found and shared some on each of my blogs. Finding them in the future will be simpler with the categories I've created. I'm not finished yet, but there's an end in sight.
6. My yard is doing well. The roses are in full bloom again and so are a variety of additional flowers. Here's a small sampling.
My lemon tree is getting a new crop that should be ready in a few weeks, but the limes are ready right now. A neighbor shared some tasty peaches from his yard with me and I bought more fresh produce at a local Farmer's Market last week. This fuschia (that started itself when a basket used to hang suspended from the roof above) is blooming like crazy and the new plants have sprung up around it are blooming too. I had no idea this could happen.
