Blog Redux - January, February, March

I'm not even sure what redux means but I'll look it up after writing this post. I was over at Suburban Matron the other day, one of my favorite blogs, and liked how she posted a bit of a recap of her blog for the year. I think that's a fine thing to do, especially if one is resolved to not have any resolutions. It was fun to go through my archives from last year, click onto each post and quickly review it. I didn't have too hard of a time picking out a favorite from each month, so here are the first three:

And now I'll post my one of my favorite photos from those first three months. It's not one that I took, but it's a picture of one of my favorite places in the world. We called them "the stacks" in Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


  1. i remember the stacks and your steamy words...

  4. The "stacks"--I love them. Our current library has them. Our new library will be stackless alas. Of course, it will have much new to offer so I'll have to be o.k.!


  5. I really need to take some time and do a little back tracking.Seeing i think I came in a bit late in your game.

    Photo is incredible.Been there.at least outside it.Briefly.Long story.I'll have to share it with you when we get together for that dinner and drink.

  6. I love that photo - reminds me of the library at my college, where I spent many hours pre-Internet!

  7. I can't believe it's been a year actually.
