The Magic Milestone Number: 100!

 It seems that I've reached what I call the Magic Milestone Number, recently: 100 followers!!!

Wow! I feel so unworthy of so many followers, (most of them much more talented than me!); folks who actually want to read my scribblings and look at pictures of my insignificant Midwestern life!!!!!

I am honored; I am astonished. I am grateful to all who like my blog and have become followers (or even those who don't follow but still take the time to browse and make comments).

And because I just recently finished a nearly 700 page biography of John Adams, Second President of the United States, for my Summer Reading Challenge, I will use one of his very apt quotes:

"A desire to be observed, considered, esteemed, praised, beloved, and admired by his fellows is one of the earliest as well as the keenest dispositions discovered in the heart of man."---John Adams

It seems traditional in blog-land to occasionally have a give-away when reaching such magic milestones, so when I have decided on what would make a lovely give-away winner gift, I will probably soon be having one here at Le Beau Paon Victorien!

I also must point out that even though the dear husband fixed my computer issues for me last week, he then decided that I should no longer suffer with my old computer (which actually used to be his) and that I possibly couldn't live any longer without having the latest and greatest in processors, RAM, graphics, storage and a flat-screen monitor (I admit; I've been coveting his flat-screen monitor for quite some time), so as of last week Thursday, when he came home with a surprise for me ( yes, a new computer), I have been busy transferring things from the old to the new, which includes all my project and document files, tons and tons of photos, as well as music files and many other things.
I say this only to explain my shocking absence from regular blogging, projects, endless photo updates of my flowers, chatting, dish envying and tabelscaping. 
I hope to back at it regularly very soon!

Thank you so much for your gracious comment on my blog. It sounds like you have been quite busy between the computer and reading. We watched the mini series on John Adams and really enjoyed it:).

congratulations to the 100 followers. I know, because I am a follower as well, they all love your blog and that is because you make so nice photos and posts. I hope everything will turn out well with the new computer and you will have lots of fun to make new posts then.
Greetings, Johanna
