Sending my blog flowers

.
I just realized that this is my 1,000th post. I've been doing this since November 30th, 2006. We've come a long way together, this blog and me. I'd tell you all about it if this wasn't Wordless Wednesday (or rather it will be tomorrow morning when I post this link over there), but since it is, I'll just share this:

But since it's also Wordful Wednesday (see above) I'll tell you that while you're admiring, I'll be packing - I'm heading out Thursday morning for a glorious one night/two day girlfriends getaway to a Dead Sea spa. There will be massages, and treatments, hours wiled away by the pool with umbrella drinks, and a great deal of hilarity and good conversation. Everything you'd expect when eight good friends ditch home and family for a night in the lowest place on earth.
.
Have a great rest of the week everyone. I'll be around to visit this weekend.

Wow, 1000 posts! I'm approaching 200 in a year and I'm pretty excited about that. I hope I'm still here in four years.

Congratulations and enjoy your getaway.

Mazal tov on 1000 posts!
Remember the old ulpan book "Elef milim veod alpaim"? Well, I hope your blog will go strong for another 2000 posts.
I love following your life and adventures and opinions in Around the Island.

Drink a lot (of something, anything) if you are going on Thursday. It will be in the 30s, even up high in Jerusalem. Have fun.

Now that's the way to celebrate 1000 posts. I'm so jealous.

rivster said...

Stunning.

The best massage I ever had was at a spa by the Dead Sea. It involved a mud wrap. My muscles were so loose that I had difficulty walking.

Enjoy your friends and your time!

Wow ... 1000 posts! Most Impressive!!! Congratulations and here's to a thousand more ;-)

You've been at this about a year longer than me ... and I really have no clue how many posts I've published but I don't think I'm at 1000 just yet.

Hope you enjoyed your spa outing!
Hugs and blessings,
