After that journey all the way back to my meager beginnings, here are my top five most read posts:
#1 Warmth of WoodPublished on 02/11/2014
I told about how we use wood to heat our home for the winter months. I shared two photos, one of what seven cords of wood looks like and the other of the dogs asleep in front of the wood stove.
#2 Olive Kitteridge is Wearing My SkirtPublished on 17/11/2014
I wrote about my positive reaction to the mini series Olive Kitteridge. Because I had read the book, I was able to draw a few comparisons between Olive on the page and Olive on the screen. Searching the web had led me to the image of Frances McDormand as Olive. She is wearing a button front skirt and I have an identical one which led to my title.
#3 Three Things You Don't Know About MePublished on 31/10/2014
This was a bit of a stretch for me because I had to share a couple of silly things about myself that I'd not told anyone before. No one emailed me to share similar reveals, I noticed, but lots of people read this post.
#4 Carol Shields...Still Read and Still MissedPublished on 03/12/2014
My life long love of Carol's work was the essence of this post. I was reading her book The Republic of Love at the time and enjoying it immensely. Perhaps it made it to the top 5 because her books are loved world-wide.
#5 No Fashionistas Living HerePublished on 08/12/2014
I had a chat about how hubby and I dress for the cold weather, namely with lots of corduroy, layers of fleece and down clothing. It made it sound a little like we lived in the Arctic, but since I've lived there, I can honestly say it gets just as cold here in the Ottawa area at times, just doesn't stay as long.
