Due to our staying at home for virus protection, I have been walking our trails every day since March and have been recording my Sit Spot notes here on this blog. I hope to make another Sit Spot Book with all the information that I have collected but, even if I don't, the information will be here for me, and others, to look at later to see the progression of new flowers and list the birds seen daily.

Several days ago I passed the previous total number of blogs ever made in a year's time and I have done more daily sit spots in a row than ever before. I am wondering how long I can continue this daily recording.
