Week 36, Project 365

If we were pregnant, we'd be having this baby by now. Yes folks, we've been at Project 365 that long!

Something else I've been doing for a long time is this blog. This coming week marks my second blogiversary! The same day I plan to write post #500! And if that isn't exciting enough, sometime last month when things were so busy that I didn't have time to keep track, I passed the 25,000 visitor mark. Woot!

I have a few things to celebrate!

All this week anyone who leaves a comment will be entered in a drawing. Each day I'll ask you to do something different... today I'd love it if you leave a comment about why you blog. Tomorrow it may be what you like best about blogging or a link to the favorite post you've ever written... Each comment will be a separate entry so be sure to come back every day to enter. You can comment through midnight Saturday, September 12th, and I'll announce the winner next Sunday morning.

I'd planned to have a photo with the giveaway items but then I decided it would be best to wait and see who wins and then tailor the gift for that person. Because not everyone likes the same thing. And what if I had girly things and then a guy won (I know of a few men who read this blog and who might be tempted to come out of lurking mode and comment when there's the possibility of winning looming over them). So just know that if you win, you'll like what you get because you'll be giving me ideas!

If you happen to mention my little giveaway on your blog, you'll get another chance at winning. I'm sure if I'd had enough time I could have figured out how to make a fancy button for the occasion, but people, time is a commodity in short supply these days so we're keeping it low tech.

Now, on with the photos for the week!

There's a town near here that dates back about 400 years. I think that it thought rather a lot of itself, because this not-so-big town has this grand entrance way. I shared the other day how we were given some tomato plants and, based on our experience last year, we decided to grow them in a big pot on the patio. I am hoping we get a good crop so I can make some fresh salsa. Among other things. I was sick part of the week so there aren't as many photos as usual. And the next photo is one Andrea took because I didn't make it to the cooking lesson our friends gave on Wednesday. Nestor and Graciela are from Las Rosas in Provincia Santa Fe, where there's a pasta factory that's well known in the area. They went last weekend and brought back fresh tallarines and then demonstrated how to make an amazing sauce with chicken and vegetables. Although I missed the lesson and lunch, I do know it's really good because they've served it before. This photo is a repeat from the other day. Ivan took this at a concert of senior choirs from around the country. This handsome fellow is the director for the choir from Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Finally, a photo representing what I did yesterday: pack away winter clothes and unpack the summer things. These are things I don't like to box so we'll put plastic bags over to keep the dust out and hang them in the loft storage space. Sara, thanks again for hosting Project 365! We're 3/4 of the way done!
