I’m not sure if I should call this a break or what I should call it. I just think we all need some time off and this might be the best time do it. It seems everyone is busy and are elsewhere too. Baseball, soccer, swimming, golf, vacations, fishing. We’re all really busy right now.
I can say with almost certainty that I’ll be back. It may be next week for all I know but I did want to tell you all something. In all these years, we’ve never taken time off like this. I just feel right now, at this time, I want to get my hands dirty in “real” dirt and take care of “real” plants and flowers. I want and need to spend more time outside.
I read somewhere the other day that the average blog is lucky to make it to 90 days. I think we got really lucky. We’ve had 5,496 posts and 55,256 comments. Since starting, we’ve also had 1,213,434 hits. The counter on the main page I got long after we started the blog. Can you imagine? Over a million hits??!! Wow.
I thought if this day ever came that I’d be really sad and if we don’t come back, which I’m sure won’t happen, but if it did, I’ve met great people and feel I’ve made some lifetime friends so how can I be sad about that? But I’m almost positive I’ll be back. As for the other “girls,” I’m sure they’ll be on board too but I’ll have to let them answer for themselves.
If you do feel the need to vent, I’ll always still be around. I still come here 45,742,347,839 times a day “just to check” anyway!! LOL!!! So we can still chat. Plus, stop by and feed Harold. I’m sure he’s going to get lonely.
I’ve already been working on posts but it’s really nice not to have deadlines or think “I don’t have a Braingle ready” on a Friday night. I need this break. This blog started on March 30th of 08 so that’s a long time to go with no breaks.
So have fun. Have a great summer. If you have any help for us, write things down or send them to me. I am working on stuff as I mentioned and we do need and welcome the help from you guys. Without you, there would be no blog either.
Thank you for coming and we’ll see you soon.
