December 30. Something that made me smile this year.

Today’s topic had me searching back thru all the photos I’ve taken this past year, reminding me what I’ve been  up to, looking for the thing that made me smile. There were so many things, really, that put a smile on my face this past year. But one of the best times I had was my summer vacation in July, and another satisfying thing was how often I looked at the sky and saw how beautiful it is all the time. Here’s a picture of the sky I took while I was on my July vacation in Zion National Park.

Day 330. cold.

December 28. cold.

We went out to Multnomah Falls. It’s a total tourist trap so has a level of unpleasantness, but it is still an awesome site every time. It wasn’t all that cold, but it was raining pretty steadily. We bundled up. Here’s my dad and sister.

Day 329 photo. how I relax

December 27. How I relax.

I’ve started knitting again. It’s a great winter activity since you can immediately wear whatever warm goodness you create. It’s also a good activity I can do with my  mom. Sitting around chatting and enjoying time together, each working on our own project.  I made one hat this past week and have started another.  I’ll post patterns when I get time soon.

December 26. Mess.

The other thing that happens when you have guests and spend all your time having fun, is that your house turns into a complete disaster!

Day 327 photo. Lunchtime.

December 25. Lunch.

My sister made split pea soup!  It’s an understatement to say that my sister can’t cook. She has barely made toast before, so I was impressed when she whipped up a pot of split pea soup.
