A bit different from the way I've done it before, the title and first sentence of the first post of each month for 2010.
January: Sweater knitted. Now I just need to make up the sleeve seams, block it, sew in the snaps and put on the buttons. I loved the way it turned out
February: Gryffindor scarf update. Knitting done. Weaving in ends 3/4's done. Need to block and add fringe. Wow! I knitted a bunch in the first part of this year!
March: I would say something if I had something to say... Will catch up here later this week. Sorry for the silence here, but I'm noisy at my other blog and on Twitter. Yeah, my posting everywhere went way down this year.
April: Things I wish I would make time in my life to do
* Hawaiian Dance lessons. I still would like to make time in my life to do this.
May: Cropped! From this: (pic) To this: (pic) I wonder what he'll do with his hair next?
June:Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Mysteriously Knowledgeable 8-year-old I would accuse him of reading ahead, but MY SON would NEVER do THAT. He's a reader, that one.
July:Briefing in brief. We went to Vermont on Amtrak. Ah...Vermont. Ah...Amtrak.
August: Whatever you're interested in, Dick Francis has a book about it (Part 1) Photography? REFLEX He died earlier this year. I am so glad I got to tell him several times how much I enjoyed his books.
September: View from the Waiting Room Sitting in the waiting room at the car shop, waiting for them to change the oil, rotate the tires, and do all the stuff one likes to get done before traveling in holiday traffic 6 hours each way. He really is an amazingly patient boy
October: What we're doing around here MM is acing tests (spelling, math, geography: all A+) and enjoying school immensely. I can't tell you how relieved I am about this.
November: Was gonna post last night for NaBloPoMo but something came up. That was really not fun. At all.
December: A Scene From Thanksgiving MM starts a book club: Now that was a really fun time.
My two grandmothers. My mom and step-dad. Me, Mr. Spock, and Muffin Man. My sister, her husband, my niece and nephew, and the wonderful exchange student. My Aunt and Uncle TandemBicycle and their daughter (cousin in picture). My Aunt and Uncle JustAFewYearsOlderThanMe and their three kids. My Uncle SnarkySenseOfHumor, my Aunt WorksWithSpecialNeedsKids, their two daughters, their grand-daughter, their eldest daughter's boyfriend, their youngest daughter's best friend, and the best friend's daughter. My mom's Cousin MiraculouslyGetsYarnUntangled, her stepfather, her son, his partner, and their two kids. And a brief visit by my mom's friends, FamousActorAndSinger and CollectsQuilts, and one of their sons, PlaysBanjoAndSingsBeautifully.
My mom hemmed some pants for me. We ate 4 tons of food. Mr. Spock and I figured out my parents home theater system and wrote up a user's guide for it. I knitted on a hat which I had to rip (thus the yarn detangling), and start again (it's much better now).
Left to right: that's a wonderful exchange student from Indonesia who came with my niece; my delightful cousin who shares my birthday; and Muffin Man. They are reading the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. MM finished the whole set of five books in two days.
They represent 1/10th of the crew that was at my mom & step-dad's for the holidays.
