If we were having coffee, I would tell you what a whirlwind two weeks I had. By the way, how would you like your coffee this morning? I’m taking mine hot, with my favorite Bailey’s (non-alcoholic) creamer.
We celebrated Mother’s day weekend flanked by two weekends of windsurfing. I sailed three days in a row the first weekend in May and it was indeed a whirlwind. Friday night was a great session but not as windy this past weekend.
In between, we traveled to Spokane, Washington, where my 83-year old mom-in-law now lives in an assisted care facility. We were very pleased to see that she is happy, peaceful, and making new friends. Many of my hubby’s family members live near Spokane, and Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. Very beautiful country there!
If we were having coffee I would tell you about how my blog got its 500th follower! This was such a thrill, I posted “One Lucky Blogger: How to Get 500+ Followers On Your Blog, Part 1.” I got a great response and later posted “How To Get 500+ Followers: 3 Reasons to Use Images on Your Blog.” I do not pretend to be some blogging expert, but I know what I know, and hopefully, I can share my experience with bloggers, new and “old.”
I plan to post Part Three next week about the wise use of social media and using link-ups to promote your blog. If you are interested, please stay tuned!
If we were having coffee, since I yacked so much, I would have to go get a re-fill. Can I get you another cup?
Being that May is National Water Safety Month, I posted “5 Tips for Water Safety.” As a leisure educator, swim instructor, and self-proclaimed water fowl, I want to draw attention to the importance of being safe in and around the water. Before I retired from my job, May was always a crazy, busy month getting 150 lifeguards hired and trained. I guess the water and safety education is still in my blood!
And May is still a crazy, busy month…what’s up with that? Memorial Day weekend, the fourth Saturday in May, marks my daughter’s graduation from college. She will receive her Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Therapy. Her graduation is at 8:30am then we have a large group of family and friends coming over to my house for a lunch BBQ and celebration. So I am planning for that now, but I will save that for another post!
Traveling involves unpacking, packing, etc. and living out of a suitcase. As much as I love to travel, it is always nice to be home.
How was your week? I wish you a great second half of May. Take a minute and check out my gallery of some photos from Spokane and Idaho.
