A meme found on Moe's blog last year.
Instructions: Copy the first sentence that you posted in each month of the year.
Which of course I did not follow exactly, ‘cus I’m a rebel. In some cases I've shown the first two sentences because; I often post a photo first with a caption so it is not technically a sentence. I’ve included the title of the post for more fun and I have linked to the original post. It was a fun review last year and I thought I'd do it again this year.
What is always interesting to me is that I post more often than I think I do. I’m not a daily blogger by any means; I do have things to say just not the time to post. So, as with last year, I was surprised at how often I did post; a lot more than I thought I did. Although I’m not surprised at the number of photos I post since I’m a very visual person.
January - Things I wonder...
Ever spend a day alone doing errands and having lots of time for your mind to wander....wonder?
I did yesterday.
Note: Although January began on a light note, everything was soon shattered by the sudden death of my little Holly.
March - Afternoon tea...
I don’t have a cold or the flu just a wicked cough. I feel as if I will turn myself inside out when I begin to cough.
April - The Easter Bunny wore snowshoes
The flurries began around 4:00pm April 7th ending late in the early a.m. of April 8th. There were 60cm drifts in my driveway.
May - A break in the rain
Robin is not very keen on the cold, damp weather. I often hear people complaining that they hate spring and find it dreary and dull. Me, I see colour and interesting things everywhere I look, even in my own yard.
June - The early morning dawn...
began 6°C, overcast, there was a very crisp cold bite in the air. Cold enough for a winter coat.
July - Oh Canada
Our home and native land!
August - fresh, delicious, summer
This is a slight variation on a recipe from The 15 minute Single Gourmet by Paulette Mitchell. I love this cookbook it is great for those nights when you are eating alone, or when you have no desire to eat what the rest of the family is eating.
September - How to wear out a little dog...
Nova Scotia would be an island except for the the narrow Isthmus of Chignecto that attaches us to mainland Canada. So, if you drive in any direction on Nova Scotia, you will end up on the coast.
November - Hatches battened... check
I'm as ready as I can be. All outdoor stuff put away or secure.
December - The sky fell, a weather report by Robin
I'm not too sure about snow, it looks fun to play in however it is too cold on my skinny legs and tiny feet and it is deep.
It has snowed almost everyday in December however in true East Coast weather the snow is often followed by rain. On any day, you can look outside and you may see blowing snow piling in drifts, the next minute it will be freezing rain putting a slick of ice on everything, than torrential rain, washing everything green again.
My Wish for the New Year is joy, happiness and peace for us all.
From The Queen's Christmas broadcast - 2007
" ...I pray that all of you, who are missing those who are dear to you, will find strength and comfort in your families and friends." - Queen Elizabeth II
The fast re-wind version of my year on the East Coast.
