I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by, and all the things that have happened between then and now. It seems yesterday I was waking up on January 1st, and now I’m putting the capper on another year.
I decided to put together a little photo-mosaic of all the really nice shots I’ve taken this year. They hold so many memories that I find them amazing. Anytime I stop and think that it was a wasted year, or that it just trudged on, I get to take a look back and see how much fun we had roaming through Fish Creek Park, relaxing under a patio umbrella that I bought from ThePatioPro . The knitting with a glass of wine, or dragging a very pregnant Lhiabelle through the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller are all in my head.
It’s also the year that I really returned to blogging and podcasting, and made the solid decision not to let anything hold me back. It was a huge decision for me. I absolutely love writing, and the only way to get better is to practice. It has been one of my constants throughout the years, and the fact is that I made myself stop because I was worried that someone might disagree with me over minor opinions. It came to the point where I felt that I couldn’t express them at all. I’m glad I managed to get over it, suck it up…whatever you want to call it…because the last half of this year has been a blast, just putting stories and events out into the ether and seeing what returns.
I also managed to get myself organized on the knitting front – because you knew this had to come back to knitting somehow. I’ve knit socks galore, as I am notorious for such things, but also set myself to making a couple of nice scarves and a couple of precious little baby sweaters. There is even the attempt at the Cthulhuclava, which will eventually rise again from the depths of my stash to spread mayhem and the occasional mutter and curse.
All in all, I’d say I’ve had a very happy, prosperous 2010. I’m looking forward to sharing 2011 as it happens!
