You have chanced across the blog of a middle-aged Ontarian who discusses (with very little actual knowledge or authority) such topics as gardening, music, supply teaching, genealogy, and cooking. Said chap is husband to lovely, talented, supportive lady (The Missus), father to two lovely,and talented teenage daughters, master/slave to three demanding and very non-talented cats.
To quote the song Mr. Cellophane from the musical, Chicago "I hope I didn't take up too much of your time!"

One Year of Blogging
Today is my one year anniversary of blogging. It's been fun, but I'm not going to say it has been a breeze. There is a lot of effort that goes into writing a daily blog. It is a larger time commitment than I had ever dreamed when I first started. I rarely put less than half an hour in per post, and some are in the works for several weeks/months before they ever see the light of day. Good thing I'm an early riser - that is my blogging time, before the rest of the house is up, and an hour or two before I leave for work.
I've met some wonderful people along the journey - you know who you are, my faithful readers, and wonderful commentators. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. A special thank you to my sister in law @ Everything Changes In The Light, who has read every blog from Day one and commented on most.
I first started this venture as my own personal Happiness Project. My initial thoughts were to run it for a year to see how it went. Okay, it's going to keep going, but it may not be with the same frequency in the new year. First of all I will be taking a short hiatus. Then it may not necessarily be every day. I just found the last couple months, churning out something every 24 hours left me publishing some blogs that were not where I really wanted them to be. I'm a fussy little troll. And then I look at some of the gems other bloggers seems to effortlessly craft on a daily basis.
So as promised yesterday, here they are - a drumroll (or at least a raspberry) please
