I took an idea from Mari and adapted it for me.
I chose a favorite photo from posts of each month,
featured them, and wrote a little something about them.
Here is the recap of favorite photos from my 2011 posts:
This is the door to a shed/garage on my husband's aunt's property.
I like the texture of the wood and the rusted hinge.
I like how the neutrals blend yet hold their own.
The park lake/reservoir: you can glimpse the ice through the trees.
I like the 'peek-a-boo' effect.
Although this was taken several years ago, I featured it in a March post.
I think it is Ash Cave. I know it is from Hocking Hills in southeastern Ohio.
I was exploring the exceptionally early Lily leaves with my new camera,
and discovered a spider and a lightening bug fighting.
I am not sure of the outcome, but I would bet on the spider.
This was for a "Corner View."
It's one of the bulletin board displays in a teacher friend's room.
I love this snapshot of love in action: my husband building me the low wall
that I wanted beside the back walkway.
They came in June: my daughter, her husband, son, and daughter.
However, I posted this photo in July.
This was actually my daughter's second visit close on the heels of the first,
and Mike and I got to babysit two-year-old Aaron and four-month-old Abigail'
while Sara 'trouble-shooted' at the family company.
This was the first we had seen Abigail.
I love her blue eyes and her attentiveness.
George claimed my slip-ons after I had been out watering the plants.
They smelled of all sorts of plants, bugs, earth, --all scents he adores.
This is the display two students and I put up for
the ten year anniversary of the September 11th terrorism.
This is one side of my front porch which is decorated for
the annual Pumpkin Festival.
This is the park lake/reservoir again;
this time most of the leaves have turned although not all have fallen.
I featured this quite recently.
We had not seen Abigail, Aaron, and their parents since June.
My, how she has grown!
I love this photo of her sound asleep in her Uncle Doug's arms.
I have some thoughts about the new year
that is now on its second day.
But I will save them for later.
There is much to do on this last day of holiday break!
School resumes tomorrow.
