2014 Top Ten

I’ve been seeing a lot of Top Ten lists highlighting the year’s top posts on various blogs this week and thought I’d follow trend by sharing mine. As I review them I find snapshot of what the first year of retirement has been like.

It’s interesting to me that the top two posts that were read last year were written quite some time ago. Over the years they’ve consistently shown up at the top of what’s being read; I assume it’s because they’re showing up on Google Searches. I’m going to omit them from this list but reveal them at the end of this post.

So, in order of popularity, here are the top posts from 2014.

  1. Kitchen Update
  2. My Writing Process Tour
  3. Last Friday (This is one of my favourites too! Check it out, if you missed it, and you’ll see why.)
  4. Canning Sungold Tomato Jam
  5. Happy Anniversary, Gerry
  6. Canning – Coleslaw
  7. Washing Dishes
  8. A Disturbing Trend
  9. Happy Hair Appointment
  10. A Day In Retiree Life

And the two posts that consistently rank at the top of the most read posts are A Canada Goose (from 2011) and Keypunch Operator (from 2009).

It’s kind of interesting to take a look back at all that happened over the past year, isn’t it? Here’s to the second year of retirement and the new adventures it will bring! Join me on the journey, won’t you?



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Love that saying on the cushion. Today we got some light snow this morning and we just said, we won’t got into town this morning but will wait till it clears … couldn’t of done that when we were working.

    1. So pleased you stopped by, Linda. That’s one of the things I appreciate most about retirement–being able to call my time my own and make decisions about how I choose to spend it. We too chose to stay home and hibernate during the heavy snow. It’s so nice to have the choice to do so.
