As the year draws to a close I like to look back and see how I spent my year. The cooking, the crafting, the places I've seen.
I think it's fitting that on this final day of 2009 we are actually having a blue moon! I think it is an auspicious end to the year and a great start to the new one. I, for one, am really looking forward to what 2010 brings. I think it is going to be a really good year!
January - A lovely start to the year should include a visit with the girls. They are so sweet and comical.
February - Ready for Spring with a freshly painted $30 table, a $7 Ikea vase and bunch of tulips.
May - Finally got the house painted. Only took us eight years. My favorite part is the paint color name for the front door - "Kitty Kitty"
June - One of my favorite pictures. When I look at those jars of buttons I feel rich.
July - A month of visitors and baking - my first clafoutis (why do I want to say "Bless you!" when I hear that word?)
August - A sweet little pig. That I couldn't leave alone and painted and silver-leaf'd and antiqued....
September - The Winemaker's Wife and I embark on a new canning crusade. Well we got six jars out of it...
October - Oven quits - Andrea complains - Thermador comes to the rescue
November - Let the glittering begin!
December - one of my favorite projects of the year. And one of the few decorations I actually put up this year.
Thank you for sharing this year with me and indulging me in a little reminiscing.
