Year In Pictures?

Last year Sara started a Year In Pictures project. She took photos every day and posted one photo from that day to her blog. This year she is repeating the project. Liz has joined in too.

I've been enjoying their photos and decided to join them in this project. Their YIP start coincides with their birthday, my YIP coincides with a random Saturday in fall when I decided to give it a shot.

I'll probably start posting a week at a time, but this time I didn't want to wait an entire week.

1:365 Daisies
On Friday John cooked dinner and brought me daisies. They are my favorite flower, and they have really been cheering up my dining room. John made spicy tomato soup, which was delicious. He's been cooking more often, which I appreciate. He's a pretty good guy.

2:365 Sunday Knitting
My favorite Sunday afternoons are spent at coffee shops chatting with my knitting friends. It is a relaxing way to start the week. My knitting friends are even better than knitting itself.

3:365 Pause
On Monday nights I have crochet class. This Monday I was able to get out of work in time to sit on the couch for a few minutes and knit. I haven't sat on my couch since then. I miss it.

4:365 Late Dinner
I'm taking a two week class on proper posture. I was running late on Tuesday and didn't get dinner until after class. That meant homemade chunky applesauce at 8:30. It was perfectly soothing.

5:365 Garden
I have a lot of basil in my garden. I devour it all summer. Last night I picked three cups for pesto. It tasted like summer. I'm savoring the fresh basil and hoping we don't dip down to freezing for a month or more.

6:365 Swift & Ball Winder
Last week I finally sucked it up and bought a swift and ball winder. I was getting sick of putting yarn over the backs of two chairs and winding it into a ball. After using it once I have no idea why I waited so long. It is wonderful. Let me know if you need me to wind you some yarn.

I feel like I kinda need to do this YIP thing, just to fit in.

Also, since you now have a swift and ball winder, does that mean I can't wind your yarn in exchange for baked goodies?

I am so glad that you have decided to do this project!

My mom has been making a lot of pesto for the freezer - her basil plant just won't give up!

This posture class sounds interesting - I know my bad posture is part of my shoulder problems!
