OK, I know it's almost the middle of January already but I never got a chance to post this so, indulge me.
There were a few memorable firsts last year. So looking back at 2007, it was the year that...
...we adopted Jiro. He's very playful and has been very amusing to have around. He's also my lapcat and so cuddly. We're glad he joined our family.
...I finally upgraded to a Digital SLR camera. I still have a lot to learn but I'm having fun playing with different lenses and settings.
...I went to the Sapporo Snow Festival. I'd been wanting to go for a few years so I was glad to finally get a chance to go.
...The Canadian dollar reached parity with the American dollar for the first time in about 30 years. It made for an expensive trip home in October/November.
...I started collecting poppets (and a rat). I first saw them on Carl's blog, then other people started getting them, and it was the purple poppet that started me off. Now I have a hard time resisting any colour! I don't believe I've introduced you yet to all of them so here are (L-R): Rascal the Rat, Violette, Kiara, Clementine, Cassie, Scarlet, and Chloe.
...I got addicted to reading challenges. I didn't finish all the ones I joined last year but it was fun participating all the same.
...I read and enjoyed vampire fiction! ;)
What were some of your highlights of 2007?
