January

I contemplated fresh starts.

I experimented with a a new departure in flavorings. (My famous chicken tortilla chai soup recipe. Mm mm bleck.)

Then it was time to Journey North again!

.

February

I finished crocheting a sweater, almost. (Never did put the buttons on. Rilla won’t wear it, anyway. No ladybugs on it.)

Wonderboy got glasses.

We had bad days and good ones.

.

March

I sang out loud in the grocery store.

John Stilgoe knocked my socks off and got me contemplating how Way Leads on to Way and how Every Face I Look at Seems Beautiful.

.

April

In a word: Barcelona! Barcelona! Barcelona!

.

May

I contemplated my Mother’s Days and celebrated 14 years with That Cute Boy.

I got very wordy about houseplants. Twice.

.

June

Scott battled a fearsome beast in our laundry room. I read about the epic fight on IM.

I explained my Doctor Roster.

.

July

My big girls went to Colorado for a week.

We were happy to get them back again.

Then we ditched them for the San Diego Comic-Con. (Scott had to: it’s his job. Me? I tagged along for the photo ops.)

.

August

We started the 100 Species Challenge. (And though we’ve not kept up the blogging-it part, we’ve done really well with the species ID part! I think we’re in the 60s now.)

I had a little hospital adventure.

.

September

I made curtains! (I didn’t say I made them well.)

We kept on learning new stuff about our sweet Wonderboy.

.

October

I celebrated the San Diego autumn and small happinesses. And more autumn, and more happinesses. (About that sourdough starter, though? Epic fail.)

.

November

My parents came to visit, and we enjoyed a fabulous week of exploring SoCal with the big girls.

.

December

‘Twas a month of Twittered moments, and birthdays, and sewing, and books, and Advent moments both magical and mucky.

.
And now it’s 2009, and we’re about to make another fresh start.

    Good luck – I’m voting for a boy born on January 5, if there’s a pool…

    I was just thinking about your hospital trip this week. Something about daily minerals for pregnant women.
    I can’t wait to meet this new little one of yours! May the arrival be safe and peaceful.

    golly, hasn’t 9mnths flown?!

    masses and masses of luck, love and prayers; hope all goes well – before, during and after, and that the after pains are bareable xxxx
