I turned 39 last Saturday! It’s been a week since then, and more than two weeks since I’ve blogged, and it’s been busy and eventful and so much has been going on. So I desperately need to catch up here.

It wasn’t a terrible month for reading, or a bad to start to a new year of books.

We’re still in this phase of life where we read and reread H’s favorite books on a loop, so even with our trips to the library, we don’t read that many new books. She could have Winnie-the-Pooh read to her every night and be completely happy, and…honestly we’re also pretty happy. Adam loves reading Pooh to her. But we did read some new stuff this month.

I wasn’t great about photos this month, but I was also extremely sick for the first couple of weeks of the new year. So this is what I’ve got, and despite the small number of photos here, it’s ended up as a pretty great month.

We gave H this Hape Puppy Pouch kit for Christmas, and we sewed it up this month. I haven’t seen it available anymore, I’m not sure if it’s just sold out or discontinued. But if you can’t find the puppy, here’s the fox kit.

I did it! I sewed something, and it’s only 13 days in to the new year. I didn’t make much last year, it seemed, but I went back to work full time in July. I was a lot busier. This year, though, is my year of doing and making and reading and having some head space.

Time for a new year! And 2018 is a big year. It’s the 10th anniversary of this blog in April, and that means it’s the 10th anniversary of me keeping this running booklist. So here’s the new list, I’m getting a jump on my reading already for the year. As always, this post will be linked on the What I’ve Read page over on there on the left.

I’m feeling better after battling the flu and then a superinfection on top of it. I was down from December 28th until this past Friday, the 5th, when I went back to work but still felt pretty grim. I didn’t really start functioning until yesterday, and I’d say I’m still about 80%. Just need to catch up on sleep and recharge my batteries.

That is some random stitching together of outfit selfies up there, but the top row is Jan-April, and then the next row I started stacking months. May and June are under January, then July and August, then September and October, and then under April it’s November and December. What can I say, I have the flu. Stitching a collage together without Picasa was a challenge this year, but there it is. The whole of 2017 in selfies.

I’ve been on a blogging break all month–work deadlines, holiday prep, everyone’s been sick (I have the flu as I type this, I never get the flu). But this was our December:

November is done! Yay! Thanksgiving was great, and we’re all just about recovered from the colds that came in around the same time. Adam was in Vegas all of this week for a conference, but now he’s home and December is underway.
