The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

The Holiday Season


During the holiday season, spending time with family, and friends is something everyone does around the world. Holiday’s are a time of sharing those special moments with the ones that you love.

The dinner was wonderful and everyone enjoyed the good food that was made. They had a beautiful Ham, green beans, baked beans, macaroni salad, potato salad, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs. Of course, there are enough left overs for dinner tonight and possibly the next night.

The stresses of the holidays are over and things will get back to normal. The children have the week off from school. The wind is gushing over the house. It is rather scary to listen to right now. The wind is blowing under the trailer as well and messing up the television. Bad weather is on the way while she sits here watching Frasier.

Another morning of quiet time for mommy. Relaxing and soothing everyone should take time for themselves. She walks into the kitchen and watches the interstate traffic going in both directions. The holiday traffic and crowds that will swarm the malls, Walmart, and other shops with returns.

It’s a little after seven o’clock this morning and the sun has not risen yet. The lights that surround the mountains in the darkness is quite amazing that many people live throughout the mountains.

She fed George the turtle this morning. He is a funny turtle sometimes. He will try to get out of the cage. Sometimes he flutters his front hands around his face. The children have three frogs Lizzie, Fred, and little Tim. They ate learning about the frogs and our lizard speedy Gonzalez. The children name all of their little bugs that they have studied the past year.

The cherry tomato plants are doing wonderful, and the avacado trees are going to be potted up for inside plants. There are two or three lemon plants growing along with herbs and other items as well. The gnats populate an endless supply of food for the frogs, and the lizard. The children collect many different species of food for the frogs, and lizard. This project has turned out to be a wonderful project for the children, and myself to learn more about the plant and insect life around us.
