RetrospectivePosted: December 15, 2011
This is the time of year when retrospectives start showing up everywhere, from blogs to television’s network news programs. Since it is a dark, dreary, rainy day here in the Bogs — not suitable for picture taking — I thought I’d pull out some of my favorite photos and scenes from the past year. Some have been posted here on Ye Olde Blogg. Some never made it, usually because I had so much going on that I didn’t have time to sort through everything.
I won’t be able to back further than May. That’s due to some laziness on my part. I finally have all of my photos available to me from one computer, but I don’t feel like taking the time to search the external hard drives for the files that have been put away (so to speak). Perhaps I’ll do that next week when life becomes a little quieter.
It’s been a fun year. M and I had our mid-life crises and bought cross-country skis and bicycles so we could hike, bike, and ski. We took a few trips east to visit with family.
My outdoor challenge took up a good part of the year. I experienced and learned all sorts of new things as a result of getting outside every day. I highly recommend it.
I have to keep this short. I still have a lot to do before the weekend and the arrival of our children and grandchildren. Naturally I decided to add to my list by making a big pot of soup that looks to be labor intensive. Having already soaked the beans last night, there is no putting it off. I have no idea what I’ll do with it once it’s all put together and cooked. There is little or no space available in the fridge or freezers.
We do have a cold front moving in tonight. That will make our outdoor fridge/freezer available. Once the temperature is low enough, we can use the garage for things that won’t fit in the fridge or freezer. It’s plenty cold out there.
That’s it for part one of my 2011 retrospective. I suspect I won’t get too far with this project. All of the photos used in this post are from one weekend in May. At this rate it will take me a whole ‘nother year to get through them all.
Thank you for dropping by the Bogs today. It’s fun to have company while I’m doing a little time traveling. 🙂
