Throwback Thursday

Recently, as I stay happily at home, I've been thinking about places I've been and things I've done.  I am very thankful that I have been able to travel as much as I have, as well as see and do so many things at home.  

I decided to look back at my blog and see what I posted about on May 14th in other years. 

On May 14, 2019, I wrote about a day on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, when I met Brigit.  On that trip, I walked from Porto, Portugal, to Santiago, Spain in two weeks. It was a bucket list trip. 

On May 14, 2018, I was working on the borders for Year 1 of the Temperature Quilt.  

On May 14, 2017, I wrote about a neighborhood walk when I saw Mt. Fuji and visited a temple and a shrine.  Sounds like what I'm doing these days!  

On May 14, 2016, I wrote about eating a soba lunch set at the Takamatsu train station.  

On May 14, 2015,  I wrote about getting to be part of a TV show segment where a TV personality tries out the job of being a bicycle taxi driver.  That was fun!

May 14, 2014,  was a Work in Progress Wednesday post, where I documented attaching the pearls to the Queen, and piecing the crazy quilt hussif.

On May 14, 2013, I wrote about beginning to sew the yo-yo's into rows. (If you are curious about what this ended up being, check out this post.)

On May 14, 2012, I wrote about a book I was reading and a movie I watched.  

I moved to Japan in December 2011, which was when I started this blog, so I don't have anything to say about May 2011.  I've enjoyed this look back and I hope it has been interesting for you, too. Do you ever go back and see what you wrote about in previous years on a certain date?  I'd love to read your post like this.

Fabulous memories. I started my blog in November 2011.
Have looked back at my memories, some of which I had forgotten.

What a fun idea for a post! I loved seeing these things from long before I "knew" you. I might have to try this one day. Pick a date and have at it!

Janie said...

That is a fun idea, your yo-yos are beautiful and you were putting borders on year one temperature quilt!
I also saw your slipper bag project, very useful.
Now I'll check what I did a year ago.

That queen is beautiful.

The yoyo's made a stunning wrap.

How interesting. This throwback was a lot of fun!
I don't post daily, so going back to certain dates I'd draw a lot of blanks. But I do love going back throw my blog, seeing what I was working on at the time!
