We spent the last day of 2010 in just about complete bliss. Half the day we were cozy in bed finishing off our books (Just Kids by Patti Smith for Jess and The Hunger Games for Krista). By some New Year’s miracle all four of our animals joined us in bed for a good chunk of that time. Then Levi cooked us a fancy dinner (with help) and did the dishes (without help).
I feel like 2010 was possibly one of the best years yet. It was just so much fun. Somehow I don’t feel very resolution-y, but we do have a project already planned for January of 2011. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here’s some photos from 2010:
Where I did a lot of cooking in 2010.
Levi drinking out of the elementary school drinking fountain at a bee club meeting. He’s since grown another foot.
I managed to build some things for the yard.
The neighbor cat used to spend a lot of time in our yard. Now our cat Jimmy Rabies does instead.
Seeds, seeds, and more seeds.
Clementine tried and failed to commit suicide by chocolate.
Our plant starting indoor skills improved greatly. Too bad the outdoor weather didn’t cooperate so much.
Christopher Walken on Broadway.
Jess got her bees! And we helped.
Our bees swarmed. And we caught them.
Goodbye middle school.
We celebrated 2 years married by driving up the Oregon coast.
Some of our favorite people got married. Jess even officiated one of the ceremonies.
We learned how to preserve food.
We started having weekly food and friend dinners and I got better at poaching eggs.
Pumpkin beer fest.
Levi started high school. It came with a shorter, more adult hair style and army boots.
We saw a lot of these guys.
Teen dad 2010.
Perhaps 2011 can be the year I learn to edit, which will be prudent since I hope to take more, better photos.
Happy New Year, y’all.
