I had a comp day that had to be taken before the 25th, so I took today as that day so I would have a long weekend. One of the things I wanted to do was download and edit photos from my camera of the projects I finished during the Olympics (yes, that is plural - projects - it's like I don't even know who I am anymore!). Downloading was no big deal, but editing got to be so frustrating, I just gave up for now. My new laptop does not have Photoshop on it, and the program it has is beyond annoying. I tried to download Photoshop a couple of weeks ago, but it didn't work. I may ask The Tim to give it a shop, as he is much more tech-worthy than I am. It shouldn't take more than 10 tries just to crop a photo. Grr ...
So instead, I'm going to write this post.
Saturday, August 20 was the ten-year anniversary of this blog - 10 YEARS! I was surprised, because though I knew I'd been doing it for a while, ten years seems like a loooonnnng time. :-) I would have written this part of the post on Saturday, but I decided to wait until after I wrote about Sunday being the date of my father's 100th birthday - I wanted him to have a weekend post all his own.
BUT - here we are today, and it's time to celebrate not just blogging here for 10 years, but having wonderful blog friends who actually read and comment. It makes me so happy, and is often what makes me feel like I'm not all by myself all the time. Granted, I would probably keep going even if no one bothered, because I enjoy writing and I enjoy being here. But having all of you here with me, and getting to visit your blogs, is just something I enjoy more than I can say. Thank you!
To celebrate, I've decided to do a giveaway. The giveaway package will contain the following:
1. A knitting-related item.
2. A reading-related item.
3. A food-related item.
4. A Philadelphia-related item (please note: not a cheesesteak!)
5. A surprise.
and, if you have pets, please let me know how many and of what ilk, because if you do, there will also be:
#6. A pet-related item(s).
Everyone has a chance to win here. Any comment left on this post ONLY, between now and midnight EST this coming Saturday, August 27, 2016, will give the commenter an entry. I'll choose a name at random, and announce the winner next Sunday, August 28, 2016.
Good luck, and thanks for sticking around - whether for all ten years, or just today!
