Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer


I have an anniversary coming up September 6th – 4 years of blogging. Two moves, and there are days I can’t believe I am still blogging. There are days, also, when I can’t understand why you keep reading so faithfully.

I am trying not to spend so much time on the ‘net. It’s conscious. I want to focus on living my life, not living vicariously through others. I check messages in the morning and evening, and I do my bible readings. Blogging is over and above. Research – for purchases, for trips, etc – that’s allowed. YOU still have a high priority. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are the three cakes I am considering for the 4 year blogaversary:

It is amazing how much time you can waste . . . just looking for the right cake for an imaginary celebration.

Which do you prefer? Why?

  1. Well, if its an imaginary celebration, I’m voting for key lime pie.

  6. Suwannee, now I can’t stop thinking about Key Lime Pie!

    Momcat – I am always partial to shells. EnviroGirl had them on her wedding cake!

    LOL, Adventureman! Your first comment, well done!

    Mrm – I will join you. There’s a reason fat tastes so good!

    Thanks, Taz!

  7. I vote the shells cake. I agree with momcat & the symbolism.

    Btw I can’t thank you enough for the advise and fear alleviating you did for me in preparation to my move. You made my relocation to Kuwait so so much easier. I’m back in Fl. now, but will have to go back to Q8 in the future.

  8. Thank you, Dawn. I think I would vote for the shells, too, especially if it were chocolate cake underneath! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you enjoy your return to Kuwait.

  11. OOps! OOps! PreMature – it’s like getting married, first you gotta pick the cake (and the mate, LOL!) Not celebrating yet! Come back after sundown on September 6th – party won’t start until we can all eat that cake together.

    Thank you, two of my favorite people. ๐Ÿ™‚
