Daily Pics #223. Happy 500!

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday as well! It’s the day most people seem to hate the most. Possibly because it’s traditionally the first day back to work after the weekend. That’s not really the case for many people these days however since many people work weekends, days, nights and any combination of these. But why not just say “I’m going to have a great day today” and you will have a much better day than if you go off into the day mumbling and grumbling. Isn’t it more fun to be happy than unhappy? So let’s head out into the day with a smile and a positive outlook! Now, what’s with the “Happy 500”? This is my 500th post of the year! Muffin and I were so excited about that this morning that we were chasing each other around her scratching post, which is in the middle of the living room now.

She likes that location much better. So do I. I’m not kicking the base of it anymore. It has a very heavy base to keep it from being knocked over. Muffin can sometimes come running and jump at it landing on the post. A regular scratching post would fall over, possibly landing on my foot. So I made a post for Muffin and put a heavy base on it so that won’t happen. Even at that she has almost knocked it over a few times. Anyway, back to the 500. I was actually hoping to hit 500 posts by the end of June this year, but as you can see, I didn’t quite make that goal. But still, it’s nice to make it that far anyway. It’s a beautiful morning here again, though very cool. But it’s a great morning and Muffin and I are happy. The top photo is an “ox eye daisy”, a very plentiful wildflower during our short summer. They seem to be all finished blooming for this year.

In the photo just above is the “musk mallow”, not so common as the daisy but a very beautiful flower about 2 inches (5cm) across. I hope you all have a marvelous, Muffin says “meowvelous”, Monday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  3. 500 posts is a lot! They say the only way to get good at your craft is to do it over and over and over again. I believe this too be true!

    I still have 436 more blog posts to go before I reach 500. Add the additional page categories and that’s an additional 20 posts. So 416 more blog posts to go! πŸ˜…

    • There you go, you’re on your way to 500!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Ί
      I was originally aiming for 1,000 posts this year, but I won’t make it now, but perhaps around 800? We’ll see how things go.πŸ€”πŸ˜„

      • Well, at this rate I will be ancient by the time I reach 500 blog posts. 1,000 blog posts is A LOT (especially for 1 year). How do you keep track of them all?

      • I don’t really keep track of them, though I should I guess.πŸ€ͺ The hardest thing for me is remembering which photos I have used.πŸ˜¬πŸ“· I should have kept track of that better right from the start. Maybe I can work on that once that season I don’t like to talk about gets here.πŸ€”πŸ˜„


    • Thanks Jessica! I was actually surprised when I noticed it was almost at 500, I didn’t think I had been posting that much this year. I’ll soon be passing last year and I thought I posted so much last year. Have a great day/night Jessica!😁😸😻
