Candy Apples

I’m really excited. This Tuesday, October 23rd, is this blog’s one year anniversary. I think so at least. Yeah, I’m not really sure. Instead of opening the blog with one post, like most bloggers do, I thought it would be a good idea to already have some posts on the site before the big unveil. So, I opened IronWhisk with five posts on it already. I played around with the dates so they didn’t all seem to be written on the same day.

I ended up with about a month of content before I even told anyone about the website. While that appeared to be a good idea at the time, I now realize that it was a pretty bad one. I don’t know when I baked the first post. I don’t know when I wrote the first post. I don’t know when I published the first post. All I know is when I first told someone about the site. That was on October 23rd, 2011. So that’s what I’m celebrating. Not the first post but the great unveil.

International Apple Pie

I’m a Canadian. I live in North America. It’s not always cold here (it is usually cold here). I don’t play hockey. I don’t own a pet beaver. I don’t have a maple tree in my backyard (there is one in my front yard). It doesn’t always snow here (although it’s starting to hail right now). I don’t own a toque.  I don’t live in an igloo. I don’t ride polar bears to school (that’s only in Manitoba). You understand now, eh? I am a Canadian.

It sure is cold outside right now though. The hail is starting to cover the grass and the leaves that have fallen to the ground. Soon, as all Canadians know, the fields of green will become fields of white. Snowmen will be built, slush will be on the roads, and cocoa will be made. Canadians all over will step out of their homes to go to work and shiver. Yes, we shiver in the cold. We’re Canadians, but we’re still human.
