The Year That Was.

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.

February – all my photos from this month are of snow, knitting and baked goods, like these biscuits.

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.

December – it was all about the Merry.

    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.
