Patience posted a year in pictures recap on this “Mondayist of Mondays” as a way of easing back into the swing of things after the holidays. Given that we got back late yesterday evening from a most wonderful wedding to make this day truly the most Mondayist of Mondays, it seemed like a wonderful suggestion to join her in doing a photo recap of 2015.
January – we officially became parents of a teenager and I nailed a homemade version of my favorite tub of storebought frosting.
February – all my photos from this month are of snow, knitting and baked goods, like these biscuits.
March – it stopped snowing and color started coming back into the yard.
April – we went to the reenactment of Appomattox for spring break.
May -we were slammed busy, but I managed to carve out time to stop and watch the spiders.
June – we found a nest of baby birds in the hedge and I attempted to keep up with two gardens.
July – lots of watertime with The Smileys.
August – beach time.
September – after months of being overcommitted, I made a conscious effort to say NO. I also took in a fermenting workshop with the master.
October – we finished the den reorganization we started in July, with the finishing touch being this lampshade we recovered ourselves.
November – Oysterfest.
December – it was all about the Merry.

So wish we had more time!!!!
I know. It was great to see you though!
Beautiful pictures! I especially like the zinnia. (IS that a zinnia for Septbember?) What a great year!
Yes, it is a zinnia! I had that particular image printed on canvases as Christmas gifts this year.
What a wonderful re-cap Becky! Saying “no” (and sometimes “hell no”) is my new thing too. It sucks because there’s so many things I want to help out with or do but there’s only 24 hours in the day and 9 of those I am asleep. haha… Thank you for being so wonderful and amazing!! Happy new year my dear friend.
Thank you and Happy New Year to you too!
Looks like a sweet year. All that goodness with nature, friends, family and projects.
It was definitely a far better year than its predecessor.
