This is my 2,200th post on this blog. It seems impossible that there could be so many. The years have flown by and I have met so many good friends here.
I've been thinking about what to write on this milesone, and decided to list links to my favorites of the many posts I've written over the years. So here it is, a retrospective of the past 5 1/2 years of blogging:
My Highway tells the story of a road I travel often, US Route 33 across central West Virginia.
Wash Your Face in the Morning Dew explores folklore attached to this practice, and some family photos and memories of childhood traditions.
What Makes Home is a rumination about the places we love, and why.
A Poppy for the Veterans is a tribute to the many veterans in my family, including four of my five sons.
The Waver is about a man I never met, and yet had a special place in my heart.
Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still is a reminder to look beneath the surface to the person within.
The Fairy Ring captures the folkore and magic of these mushroom rings, and Rhys at the Fairy Dance is the story of a man captured by fairy magic.
Tappan Deluxe is the story of a stove--my dream stove and how it came to my house. I'm still in love with it.
Possum Tales is just that--tales of possums, both true and not-so-true.
Building the Log Cabin Room is a photo journal of the first log cabin we moved and used to build the log room on our house. Room #2 is in progress from the logs of the second cabin we moved last summer; I need to update you on that project too.
Twelfth Night is one of my many posts about the Christmas/holiday season. This one shares stories, links, memories and more about a holiday often overlooked in the US.
Making Apple Butter and Memories was written about the day we made apple butter in a blinding snow storm. Yes we did--in February, no less.
There are many more I could have included. Reading back through the older posts was like looking through a photo album, each post recalling where I was at the time, the people, the places.
Thank you for being here and being readers throughout these life journeys.
