What have we done?
In January I found color in the midst of a white world …
In February we tasted life and it was sweet!
In March we put our fingers in the dirt after what seemed a very long winter — not that winter was finished, but we couldn’t wait any longer!
In April we welcomed a new family member … at least for a few months.
May was a busy month. There was the arrival of the bee man …
… and a celebration of coming summertime fun.
June brought us small town parades, 4-H floats and tractor pulls.
July brought hot, hot days …
… and fair time fun.
In August we went to the state fair … for butter cows and ferris wheels and Trace.
And in September we played in the rain …
Started school at home again …
… and tickled our hillbilly bones with a load of B.S. at yet another county fair.
In October we chatted with Abe …
… and studied American history up close and personally.
In November I painted until my arms fell off.
And in December we finally slowed down and watched the flames.
Holy smokes! It’s been a busy year. Makes me tired just thinking about the fun and joy and blessings we’ve experienced. And as for goals I might have for 2012? Ask me in January or maybe February. Right now I’m just going to rest and cozy up in my winter attire and wonder if snow will ever come.
Happy new year to you and yours! Thanks for sharing 2011 with us.
