Year in review meme

From Patrick at The Hawk Owl's Nest. The idea is to post the first sentence of the first post of each month.

It occured to me today that I hadn't yet posted a photo of my first bunny, Miss Buns. More...

Here comes February, a little girl with her first valentine, a red bow in her wind-blown hair, a kiss waiting on her lips, a tantrum just back of her laughter. More from Borland...

March is a tomboy with tousled hair, a mischievious smile, mud on her shoes and a laugh in her voice. More from Borland...

April Fool's Day is usually when we resume feeding the goldfish, using cheerios at first, because they're easily digested. More...

When I was a newly-minted master gardener I went out and bought two great reference books so that I would sound smart when answering questions on the helpline or during community events where we volunteer. More...

June is the year at the altar, a bride with a bouquet of roses and forget-me-nots, veiled with morning mist and jeweled with dew, gowned with sunrise and romantic as a full moon. More from Borland...

My friend Michelle sent this along to me tonight - can you imagine watering all these pots? More...

August is the year at early harvest, a farm wife with a baby napping in the crib, a preserving kettle on the stove, fryers in the freezer, new potatoes in the pot, and a husband in the hayfield baling the second cutting. More from Borland...

Can I rant a little about work? More ranting...

This month's edition of The Festival of the Trees, celebrating trees and tree-ish things, is up at Hoarded Ordinaries. More...

November is the aging year, a woman whose Springtime children have grown and gone their way but whose hair is often spangled, whose gray eyes are often alight, and whose dress of grays and browns is neither dour nor dowdy. More from Borland...

December is the year in age and wisdom, a woman with starlight in her frosted hair and a snowflake on her cheek and a sprig of holly on her coat. More from Borland...

A new year of blogging will soon be upon us and with it the challenge of 365 days worth of posts. Some days it's so easy; on others I'm glad to have the regular weekly or monthly fixtures like the Borland posts or the bunny fixes that don't require very much thought. I haven't decided yet what I'll do instead next year, but will have to come up with something besides Borland's monthly musings, as much as I enjoy them.

Neat idea, I'll have to try this out and see how it goes. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for next year.

Laura - I only have three months to review but I'm curious as to what I did :) I don't think you'll have any trouble coming up with something new for '07. You're so creative!

What a fun meme! Can't even believe the year is almost over.

This was fun, Laura. I enjoyed reminiscing with you, from Borland's wonderful writing to mucking out your pond (and of course the infamous "Can I rant about work..."). I look forward to seeing what you do next year. I did my own meme yesterday - probably not too interesting for other readers, but it brought back some neat memories and reminders of times forgotten.

I like how most of your posts actually started with a comment about the month. I'll have to consider this for next year.
I tried the meme myself.
