This Blog Lost Some Weight - Spring Clean 2013

Recently, there was a mass disappearance of photo images on my old blog posts; old images have ceased to exist. There were two choices to make: delete such posts or re-install images. Deleting was effortless; re-installing images meant being sentimental and having to excavate old digital folders, and reliving memories.

I started working from the back, way back to my 840-something-th post dated in 2007, accompanied by the movie, Broken Flowers. This was my second time watching it. As Don Johnston re-visits his old flames, I was re-visiting the old me responsible for all this jibber-jabber. There was much editing to be done.

One movie did not suffice -- this blog overhaul took 5 full days. A couple of old blog posts might have resurfaced. Sorry about that; it was by accident, since my hand and eyes lacked coordination after staring at the screen for hours. All is well now; we are now shipshape with 615 blog posts. (And counting.)

Going through old photo albums made me realise how the years have whizzed by, and there were things that would have been fun to share. It also allowed me to sort my blogging content.

This blog is my online scrapbook -- a scrapbook of my daily life as a Domestic Engineer, Trailing Spouse, Cat Mom (very important), as well as Maker and Etsy Seller. I am happy - and very surprised - that you take the time to be here. Thank you.


  1. Hi Juanita! I hope you will accomplish this cleaning up soon :) I was actually looking at the window in the background. You must have a very great view in your working table.

  2. I think we know each other since Summer 2009 ?!
    Forever grateful to my chubby red tomatoes :P
    Have a good weekend!

  3. Oh I hope this doesn't happen to me... "mass disappearance" of photos from older posts (need to check!)... But you did a great job! I love the expression "online scrapbook"... and I hope you continue enjoying the journey for a long LOOOONG time!!! :D

  4. Why did the photos disappear? That is strange...

  5. Oh I am still so lazy to fix my own blog's missing images. Good on you for getting yours done. ;)

  6. So your blog went on a minimalist purge too! :) An occasional glance backwards can be good for the soul. Glad it made you celebrate this little space of yours and the people who share in it.


How I love comments. Thank you for stopping by; I really appreciate it :)
