Monday Missive – My WordPress Anniversary

It is a foggy and misty morning. I am driving down to The Kolache Factory this morning to pick up some sweet and savory kolaches – a Czech filled pastry of puffy dough.

  • Wordpress anniversaryYesterday I received a message from WordPress celebrating my 11 year anniversary of signing up for a WordPress account. My early experience with WordPress was designing websites for my web design business. I had several iterations of blogs on this platform and others, but it took retirement to become a consistent blogger.
  • I sent an email requesting a spot in Mary Smith’s online workshop “Mining Memories”. To say I am excited for the possibility is an understatement!
  • This past weekend we watched videos to learn how to prune our overgrown blueberry bushes. We are hopeful it will help produce a larger and sweeter berry when harvest time rolls around.
  • The first day of spring is only 19 days away if you are counting. I realize that does not mean a switch is thrown and spring flowers bloom overnight, but it definitely heralds a change in the weather.
  • Easter falls on April 4th this year. We will have had our second vaccine and the two week wait for the maximum protection will have passed. That does not mean we have the green flag to visit our families because most of them will still not have been vaccinated. The U.S. is starting distribution of a third vaccine that requires only a single shot which hopefully means more of the population will soon have some level of protection.
  • My Monday morning mental jukebox has Seals and Crofts on rotation. If you know it, sing along. Have a great Monday and a wonderful week.

  1. The “Mining Memories” workshop sounds excellent. I hope that works out! And kolaches sound delicious, too — there were several shops that made them in Austin when I was growing up and I remember them as a special treat.

    1. The Kolache factory is in Powdersville, so the next time you are down toward Clemson, try them. Mary is in Scotland and it is such a joy to read her stories about her time in Afghanistan, I know her workshop will be wonderful. What a brave woman!


  2. I have been to Prague, but never had a Kolache. Now I want one of course.

    WordPress seems to have stopped send me anniversary badges. I didn’t get one in 2020 for my 8 years.

    I’m going with Summer Breeze from S&C, to make me think of summer breezes to come.

    Though to be honest, I think I actually prefer the Isley Brothers cover version. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Found this comment in the trash. I went back and saw my settings had changed for comments with links. Hopefully this will not happen again.

      I like this song, too, Pete. I will go check out the Isley Brothers version.

      I will post some pics of the kolaches. They are yummy.

    1. Thanks, John. This afternoon the winds picked up, must be the fringe of what is headed northeast. Come on spring – whenever you’re ready!

      1. I hate to imagine one all tangled up in netting. Fortunately the bears so far seem to stay on the west side of the Connecticut River and leave us alone.
