I read the new year/January 1st posts & think, 'How lovely these people are that can remember enough about the previous year to be able to write about it!' An example of such a post is Gordons'. In reading it, it strikes me that, for 2011, I have precious few Firsts to note, & even fewer Seconds.
There are a few Firsts: getting my first e-pattern, sewing off a Burda-style pattern, putting up curtains in the this bedroom, Grandchild #1 off to first grade. There are even fewer Seconds: pleasure of gardening.......& that's about it. 2011 was like being stuck in nearly frozen molasses. I shall take pains to insure that 2012 isn't the same!
