the year that was...

That's it for I thought I'd take a quick look back at the year that was! Harrison Hotsprings with the grandkids.

February...memories of a weekend in Birch Bay with my sisters.

March...making 'little peeps' with Spencer and Emerson.

April...riding the lazy river in Palm Springs with good friends.

May...Jeremy, the kids and Chief walking home across the fields.

June...driving through a prairie storm in Manitoba.

July...Chilliwack Lake (one of many lakes we visited with our Swiss friends).

August...making hay while the sun shines.

September...celebrating dad's 85th birthday.

October...a wonderful family weekend at Alpine Meadows Resort.

November...trip to Grand Canyon and beyond!

December...celebrating Christmas with the family.

It was a year of many is so good to pause and look back on occasion! Tomorrow we start the next chapter. Who knows what that will bring? What I do know, is that God will be faithful come what may!

And, it's hard to believe, but I am on the eve of my 100th post. I can't even begin to write about this experience today, but I've had a lot of fun playing with pictures and words (that's what blogging is, right?) So watch for the traditional '100 things about me' post tomorrow. I am giving away a calendar for the new year (garden pic's I took last year). So leave me a comment or send me an e-mail, and I will enter your name in the draw...winner to be determined on January 2, 2008.

Happy New Year to you all!


  1. Happy New Year! I love seeing your photos each week. Where you live is beautiful, and so different from my own home territory. Congratulations on sustaining creativity for one hundred posts!

  2. Happy New Year to my new friend! Thank you for the look back at your fabulous year! My wish to you is that this new year is just as, if not more, fabulous as the last! Take care!

  5. WOW, you have really accomplished a lot since September when we first started talking about blogging. Congratulations on your post today. Yes, I agree it takes time but at the same time it's a journal and legacy of the lives we lead.
    May 2008 have some glimmers of hope for you and your family.
    I would be honored to have your calendar. I think I'll leave a post every hour.

  6. A journal and a legacy...I agree with Marg.
    Congratulations on your 100th post, Judy!
    A calendar of your photos...I like that so please enter my name in the draw...thanks!

  7. What a wonderful year you had Judy...what a wonderful year coming up! See you next year

  8. I think you're the best!! What else do we need to say in order to get the calendar??

    Have a good one!!

  9. Wow! That was a great journey through your year. We all should be doing that...I should. It would remind me of all the blessings; one was a new grandson.

    I had no idea that one does a post "100 Things About Me" to honor the event. I'm actually glad that I didn't. Phew! But I'm looking forward to yours!

    Happy New Year!

  10. All I can say is that I'm so so glad you started blogging in 2007. It has been a joy to become your friend.
