Usually I don't mind posting a review of the year, but this year I'm not so sure. I'm also not sure I would have remembered to do a review if not for Vicki's amazing post of her 2012. I've fallen behind in posting (December has so few posts I had trouble choosing a picture), in knitting, and in keeping up with friends, whether they blog or not. I feel sad and it's not just the lack of light.
To review-- in words (the first sentence of the first post of each month) and in pictures (one favorite posted photo from each month), one not necessarily related to the other.
Here's my year for better or worse:
Thank you for being a part of my life, for reading, commenting, lurking, and for encouraging my daily musings.
It's not that I want to wish my life away, but I am always happy to see the end of January.
Pssst...I've got a little secret for you today.
Friday the sky was littered with feathery clouds, which makes for pretty pictures, but is the first sign of a forthcoming storm.
The garden goddesses were not amused by the wrapping of wet, whipped cream snow they received from Mother Nature on Saturday.
We started out early... ready, willing and able to help with shearing day at the Sunrise Ranch.
Once upon a time I was a (almost daily) knit blogger, which means I would show off my knitting progress day by day.
My knitting inspiration has been floundering the last couple of months and there has been noticeable lack of progress.
No matter how many posts I write describing the process of knitting my Mondo, for one reason or another, I can finished them.
The whole weekend, the long and lovely weekend, of Vicki's visit felt like a retreat, not just the two days we spent at Alta.
Truly, I didn't mean to be gone so long! It's been tough enough to keep up with work, with daily life, neither of which hasn't left much extra time for blogging, etc.
The weekend goes by too quickly, especially this weekend, as there was much to do to catch up with myself from the crazy, busy week.
Well, that's it, such as it is. I talk about the weather (a little too much), have made a blogging career on mountain photos, spend time talking gardening rather than knitting, and do damn little knitting to boot. I should promise to do better in 2012, but all I can do is to try harder, and I will.
