Year in Review

I'm not ashamed to admit I steal good ideas. This came from Lorraine where she posted the first line (or two) from the first post of each month.

Here's my year:

January
I finished Something Dangerous over the weekend and started the third book in the trilogy, Into Temptation and the children out of wedlock count is up to eight, but there is a mystery about one so it could be only seven. Still.
February
Here are my blue-greens after the first rinse.
March
Misheard or misunderstood song lyrics are part of life.
April
Yesterday in the mail I got my box of seeds.
May
I guess whatever falls out of the freezer when you reach in for frozen microwave lunch is what you're serving for dinner.
June
Saturday was a gorgeous day. Hot. It hadn't rained in a while so I set the sprinkler out for several hours. Sunday it rained, over an inch. Now the lawn really needs to be mowed. I coulda mowed on Saturday.
July
I'm back to work after a two-week vacation and I have a boatload of email to catch up on.
August
My eyelashes are sticky with dried tears. I've finished Harry Potter.
September
One shelf of the spice cabinet before I put it back in the new kitchen.
October
My husband called home on Saturday from Colorado, evidently having read my last blog entry, "Did she really say that?"
November
We had about 20 beggars to the door last night dipping into the family stash. Fern and Hermione went out together around our neighborhood.
December
Why are mammogram technician's hands always so cold?

Maybe it wasn't such a good idea?

Looks like a great idea to me.
I think I'll steal it too.

I think everyone should steal it. But trust, I'm going to have it in the back of my head on the first day of each month next year!

Nice idea...but do I have to revisit my old posts? They were painful enough the first time around...

AM Kingsfield said...

Great idea! But I ahaven't even done Christmas cards!

I guess I'll have to wait til next year to do that since I started doing this in the middle of the year. Don't wanna be caught short. I already deal with feelings of inferiority due to shortness.

Very poetic and intriguing when put together that way. I once went through my journal and copied each first sentence for a poem. What a mix! Michele says hi.

Dear Anne,
I wish you wonderful Christmas and a good new year.
