Speaking of 365 Rocks.....Video

Postscript ~ Statistics, Groups, and Final Storage ~

In preparation for storage, and for statistical purposes, I grouped the rocks into several categories, as below. I am still working on the correct photos!

By size regular rocks:

13 Boulders (8" +-)

20 Large (4" +-)

83 Medium (3" +-)

Cannot find my photo of these!

100 Small (2" +-)

62 Smaller (1" +-)

53 Tiny (Under and Inch +-)

By type rocks:

9 Painted by accident

4 that I altered

9 Purchased gems

3 Etched Image or words

6 Folk

1 Missing

And already counted within the groups above, I selected and separated out:

15 Favorites, which includes:
1 Mascot

I could not leave out my final Fan Club:
1 Fan Club which is a group of 13, and not included in count of 365.

End Note ~ July 23 2016 ~ One Year Later

I have enjoyed this blog and this entire project. I only missed 2 days of posting, and posted immediately yhe next day. I did not think I could really do it, but I did. I got bogged down in the 200's, feeling like it would never end, but when it got into the later 300's, I got excited again and tried harder to look for special rocks.
I started to put more rocks in my house (not included in the project) and learned about rocks from other people. I found that there were people on the internet who enjoyed my rock a day posts.
My intention was to put together a photo book of the rocks -- not sure if that will happen now -- doing the project was satisfying as it is, and I am thrilled to have done it.
Here is a photo of me with all 365 rocks and then a little chorus of hurrah rocks as well.

All in all,  a fun time! Thank you for your audience time!

ROCK365 ~ Last One Rock ~ July 24 2016 ~ Cambria CA

This is the last one for the project. I have enjoyed meeting every rock along the way, and it has changed the way I look at rocks. This one is spectacular in color and texture. Measures approximately 2 3/8".

Rock 363 ~ Biggest Rock ~ July 22, 2016 ~ Cambria CA

I am starting to be sad about wrapping up the 365 blog. So I find I want special rocks for the last few. This one is the biggest I have ever brought home. And it is magnificent. Measures approximately 8".
