New Year Fun - 2009 Edition

I love doing this meme every year, it sort of brings the whole blogging year to an end and also takes me back in time to reflect on what I was doing.

Post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month.

I would love for you to join me, just leave me a comment and I'll come by and check yours out :)

Happy New Year everyone!



All my slow cooking recipes are now online and starting today, I will add all the recipes shared weekly to my online site too.


I feel that behind every wonderful blogging woman I have come to know, there is an amazing man, they are the ones working in the background.


It's been a quiet, relaxing, go with the flow weekend. My favorites.



I've been wanting to make Homemade Laundry Detergent for a long time

Wanna Try That Wednesday


I feel like it's been years since I've blogged anything other than the meme's



On my bedside table:



Country roads take me home, to the place I belong.....



I've been busy and running around and sorta kinda crazy lately.



Back to school blog tour...

Indonesian Chicken in Peanut Sauce


Beautiful blue skies but nippy outside.



I keep looking at the calendar and hoping that by some miracle it will just stop or rewind or something, anything, to make the time slow down.



I did a similar meme over at my food blog, highlighting all the best recipes of 2009. Go on over and take a look "Best of 2009".

  7. Such fun to look back. I did this last year and I'll see if I can get it done sometime. I had my FFF up today and totally missed it yesterday. oh well. LOL.

    Happy New Year to you and your family Sandra!

  8. happy New Year! God Bless you and your family..

  9. This is a good meme. I watched my friends two year old last night over night so I haven't had much time to blog, but next year I will participate. I may need a little advance warning, but what else is new.

    I am happy that the slow cooker recipes are online under one tab, that makes life a whole lot easier for someone like me who uses your recipes quite often.

    I remember the 31 days of prayer for your hubby. I may not of commented, but I was praying with you and some other ladies.

    Have you made homemade laundry detergent often? This I need to try.

    The July photo was cute. Amazing how the kids have grown, even over 5 months.

    Rose House, need I say more?

    How does Jasmine like playing the clarinet? Black and white pics are so cool. You are really getting to be a good photographer. Have you thought of this for a job someday?

    Okay back around to Dec. and looking forward to a whole new year of posts.

  10. I started following your blog last year...when I started my own. I remember seeing last years posting that was your year in review and couldn't wait until I could do that myself. So here is my 2009 in review....

  11. Happy New Year 2010 from Tenerife!!!
