Hello world!

Posted April 22nd, 2009 by IP

Today is Friday, 24 April 2009, and this is my first blog post! While I’m physically sitting in Mongolia, I feel connected to the world at large. At the urging of my oldest son, Jeffrey, I decided to start a blog. Jeff’s blog ‘njmatsuya.com’ has been up and running for several months and I have enjoyed following his exploits in Japan. It has long been my goal to keep a diary of our family and to organize all those boxes of photos that we have been carrying around the world for the past ten years. Paper, as we all know, is a precarious method of storing history. Now my brain wheels are beginning to turn thinking of how I can record our family’s history in a more permanent manner. This seems like a good way to preserve it for posterity! Two days ago, I registered for the domain at lunarpages.com then Jeff set up the blog spot for me. Yesterday I checked out 50 pages of possible themes – this is one of them. It’s called Floral Belle. I rather like it as it incorporates a bit of whimsy and my love of green and growing things. I’ll be thinking of how to organize the blog as time goes on. Just a brief, introductory blurb about us. Our family consists of six persons: Isamu (a native of Nagano), Peggy (grew up in Maryland), Jeffrey, Jason, Jesse, and Joshua (born in Togo and raised in the world). A cheeky daschund named Max, and a sage Maine Coon/Persian mix named Hunter round out our household. We currently reside in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. That’s all for now. In the meantime, enjoy reading and here’s hoping this makes you smile, or think, or inspired. God bless!
