I didn’t intend to write today, but was surprised to find out just a moment ago that I have been blogging here on WordPress for four years.
Until I moved from Southern California, a distance of about 2,700 miles from home, I had never felt the need to blog. However, when you are this far from family and friends, well, there is suddenly a lot to share. And what better way, than to blog with pictures for punctuation and emphasis!
I think of my blog as an open diary… and sometimes, when I go back and reread old posts, I am amazed by how much I have learned and grown here on the Farmlet. I have gained new friends here as well. You’ve arrived on my little bit of blog from all over the world, and you have all had a part in helping me to survive the occasional loneliness, distance, and the learning curve of country life.
Here’s to continued learning, growth, and sharing with old friends and new!

Happy Anniversary Lynda and thanks for sharing your corner of the planet with the rest of us (although I found you only fairly recently it’s been grand; ) !!
Thank you, Deb! 🙂
Congratulations for four years blogging! Well done 🙂
Thank you, Dianne, I certainly do enjoy it!
You are so right about moving away and finding a great way to share stories and images! How great is WordPress? Very Great for people like us!
Congratulations on four years! Wow, I’m impressed! Z
Lisa, I’m just surprised! I had no idea that I had been doing this for four years. I suppose that must mean I enjoy it.
i’ts always great when someone calls our attention to something like that.. i often am pulled from my artistic ‘fog’ – to my friends’ delight – and i have a similar dumbfounded reaction! you are right, when we enjoy something, we are not keeping a time card!
Happy Anniversary, my dear, deer friend! I have enjoyed tagging along, and I’ve learned quite a bit from you. I love your photos, and funny farmlet stories. Most of all Lynda, you’ve been a wonderful and encouraging friend! I love you!
Aww, I love you to, Lori! Thank you so much for your lovely thoughts.
congratulations … i think thats one of the best things about blogging / journalling … the opportunity to go back and look at where we were .. and see how far we have come .. and be pleasantly amazed 🙂
Thank you, Jenn, and welcome to the Farmlet!
You planted the seed, watching it grow, gathering its fruits.
Thank you, Tom. I never thought of it that way before, but it does bear fruit doesn’t it? I am so rich. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Happy anniversary to you. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Look forward to getting to know you.
And you as well, Janet!
As someone who is also far from “home,” I hear you loud and clear. Happy anniversary, and here’s looking forward to many more years of reading over your shoulder.
Thank you, and I look forward to doing the same with your blog. I think you VERY BRAVE to move that far from home. It is so beautiful where you are in the hills, and yet I think I couldn’t do it. So I will enjoy visiting with you when you share, and that will be good.
Look at you! Four years! I’m so glad I found you. Not only do I enjoy your beautiful photos and your chitchat about farm life, I think you’re really quite brave to take on such a new life.
I hope your Thanksgiving was great, and that you have all the leftovers your little heart desires!
Thank you for your vote of confidence, but I’m really not brave… I was burnt out, stressed to the max and needed a change. Did you ever read my post “Ephimera?” It explains everything. 😉
I remember when we first met, Linda. It was when you wrote about the loss of your mother in Heading Home. It took my breath away…
Late to the party, but congrats on your blogging milestone!
Thank you, Evil Squirrel!
Happy 4th year.
Congrats Lynda! We’ve only joined you recently but love being along for the ride. Long may you continue to blog.
Thank you, Annie! It is my intention to continue. I enjoy writing and my visitors to much to ever stop!
Four years! You go, girl! Congrats!!
Thank you, Patti, it has been a lot of fun!
