What could be more appropriate for an end-of-the-year post than a photo with my Chinese Zodiac animal? Yes, I am a snake--as are two of my daughters, the ones known on my blog as D1 and D5. Ring out the old year, ring in the new one.
This hasn't been a successful year for my photo blogging ambitions. Kind of hard to take and post pictures when one is flat on her back. However, the back surgery is now behind me (snerk) and I am trying very hard to get back to normal--or more appropriately, get to the new normal.
So, in the spirit of new beginnings, I'm going to declare that for 2012 I will try to post a photo every day. I'm going to allow myself the leeway to maybe post a day or two after the fact, depending on what's going on in my life, but by this time next year (assuming the Mayas just ran out of room for their calculations) there should be 366 pictures on this blog.
I've signed up for a couple of challenges for the year--one is called Take a Stitch Tuesday, and the other is a crazy quilt block challenge. I'll probably post pictures here as well as on my "other blog" but the details will be over there. I reserve the right to make this blog about whatever comes in front of my lens, whether it's my cats, my kids, my grandkids, my flowers, my trees, the skies, clouds, quilts, knitty stuff.
So, for now? Here's wishing you a happy new year, and I'll see you tomorrow!
