Milestone Or Millstone?

That was Ralph’s comment on Monday regarding the 20th anniversary of us being together.  It was an honest question…Should we look at those 20 years as a milestone to be celebrated or a millstone around our necks?  That’s an old phrase but very clever, as he always is! 🙂  I told him it was a milestone…the jury is still out on his opinion. 😉

Today marks another milestone and for me I believe it is something to be celebrated.  You are at the moment reading my 200th post on Broken Cookies Don’t Count!!!  I am quite proud of that accomplishment.  I had no clue what I was doing when I started.  Many thanks to Kristen always for sharing her idea and helping me along the way.  She is the best!

I’m not sure what will come of all this.  I am happy I stuck with it this long and I hope to continue in spite of the fact that there is renewed consternation surrounding food photos.  😦   Ah, Well…  In an effort to keep up my enthusiasm for the project, I joined NaBloPoMo…National Blog Posting Month for the month of July.

Still haven’t figured out how to attach it to the face of the blog, but then I still can’t figure out how to attach MY face to the face of the blog!!  Frustrating but it surely is all a learning process.  I’m enjoying that.  I like the idea of advancing my knowledge of computer thingys.  Every step gets me there.

Thursday is the day we finally got to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-PartII.  It was well worth the wait.

It was SO hot outside, I didn’t even want to stand too long to get a photo which is why this one is pretty bad.

I successfully convinced Ralph that I was not having any snacks and that he should not nag me to get anything.  He bought me a cold water, which was sweet of him, but I didn’t drink any until after because I didn’t want to miss anything by having to go to the Ladies’ Room!!  I could NOT believe how expensive it was for the snacks he did buy!

The movie was everything I was hoping it would be.  They edited the story where necessary and tied everything up nicely.  I thought for a moment they were going to leave out the epilogue (Long pause) but then “19 years later” appeared on the screen and I was completely satisfied. Some people actually walked out before it continued.  They must not have read the book!

I’m off to exercise now before it gets too hot!  I need to do a produce run too.  I’m enjoying my salads so much, especially with the grilled up veggies on them, I need to stock up for the weekend.  Hoping to get Ralph more into the idea of salads.  He’s doing well, but I need to figure out some more choices for him.

Lots of mundane around the house things to do today: laundry, change the sheets on the bed, do some more work in the basement…and think about what I might possibly have to say in post 201.  I like that idea.

Don’t melt out there!!  Happy Friday!!  Happy 200th post to Me!!
