Belated Blogiversary and Falling Gracefully
My blogiversary passed by and I missed it. My first post was on Oct. 2, 2005. It simply said, "Here is my first entry in my new blog." Mainly I was just trying it out to see if it all worked. It did and I did my next post on Oct. 5, 2005. My first commenter was Cliff. I had found his blog somehow, just searching I guess, and so I had to sign up in order to leave comments on his blog. That was the beginning of it all. Who knew where this blogging would lead. It has been wonderful and I have met some wonderful, great, terrific, charming, sweet, kind, generous, smart, creative, and talented folks from all over!! If you are any of those things then I'm talking about you!! It's been great and I'm really glad I started blogging. The bloggers I have met in person have been wonderful and I'm looking forward to Blogstock 08 when I'll get to meet some more! Maybe I'll manage to meet some before then. Who knows?
We finally got cooler temperatures. Today was in the 60's and windy. Kind of chilly when you are used to it being in the 90's. I saw lots of people out that had on jackets today! Not me. I was glad to see the cooler temps. I was walking the dog down the road and a car came by so I got off to the edge of the road in the edge of a driveway. I stumped my toe on a raised piece of concrete and fell quick as a flash. First time I've fallen in a good while. The worse thing about falling, if you don't really hurt yourself that is, is the fact that one minute you are on your feet and the next minute you are on the ground. I fell arms first like I was sliding into base. You know how sometimes instead of sliding feet first, they take a leap and dive for it hands first. Well, that's what I looked like. I went down on my right side. The car sped on by so fast I doubt they even noticed that I had fell. As far as I can tell I didn't hurt anything but I guess I'll see how sore I am tomorrow. My right hand went plowing through the grass and so did my left one. Then I landed on my right hip. I got up and dusted my pants off and my hands and kept walking. I felt like I fell gracefully, if that's possible!
