August Break – 2019 – Number – Picnic – My Hands

Catching up today with #Augustbreak2019 because I’ve missed a couple of posts.

August 16:  Number

I’ve been doing the August Break for a few years now and I have this page from 2015.  I wrote that my favorite numbers are 3 and 5. 

While doing the research for that, I was curious so I looked at some numbers in relation to my blog.  Interestingly, although I use Blogger to write my posts because that’s the platform I started with, I am able to simulcast it on WordPress thanks to John at The Sound of One Hand Typing who introduced me to IFTTT.  On my Blogger site I have 25 followers and 694 total posts.  On my WordPress site I have 164 followers and 941 posts.  I am not sure how I have more posts on WordPress but I wonder if I should just learn how to use that and give up my Blogger?  Something to ponder.  I also see that some of the pictures from 2015 are no longer showing on my Blogger but they are on WordPress.  What’s up with that?

August 17:  Picnic

I don’t go on many picnics but I have this cute mini-album in the shape of a picnic basket for sale in my Etsy shop in case you want to use it for some pictures of picnics that you have had :).

August 18:  My hands

I use my hands all the time since typing is what I do for a living.  A few years ago I had an interesting occurrence with my wedding rings.  I am still not quite sure how it happened but they got warped while on my hand and yet nothing was wrong with my finger. 

I had the rings repaired but didn’t like the way the anniversary band came out so we got a ring enhancer to go around the wedding bands instead.

A couple of weeks ago I was walking Benny and we had a run in with a mean cat.  When I went down to pick up Benny so the cat couldn’t get at him my hand got in the way. 

It looks worse than it is and it is all better now but I was surprised at how black and blue it got.  There were two claw puncture marks as well.  The cat was just as big as Benny and pretty strong.  Benny growls as we pass by the house now! 

Now I’m all caught up and can start fresh tomorrow.  Thanks for following along.

  1. Yikes! I’m glad your hand has healed. I love cats but they can be unpredictable.

  3. Hi, Janet – I understand your dilemma about staying with Blogger or officially switching to WordPress. (Natalie from Natalie the Explorer has just made this exact move). For three years, I struggled with the thought of moving from (self-hosted) to “Should I stay or should I go?” became my theme song! πŸ™‚ Last November, I finally made the move to For me, it was a dream come true. That single move has significantly simplified my blogging routine. Good luck with your decision.
    Wishing your hand a speedy recovery.

      Do you pay for I have been wondering if I need to upgrade to that so I can use the site to actually sell some of my crafts, although the link is on the sidebar to my Etsy shop so maybe not.

    Very odd with the rings warping like that. Seems I’ve had some do that, but they were just really cheap ones I got somewhere.
    Oooh that cat scratch looks terrible. Hope it’s better now. I’m used to our cat accidentally scratching me, but a strange cat would be a different story. No wonder your puppy growls at the scene of the crime now.


  5. I have a few like that, too. Seems like we would feel it. Hope your hand is healing well.

    Sometimes my rings do that too! I think it’s just from regular wearing and use 😐 a little bit frustrating though lol
