Catchy Name Needed by Mel (22)

Quilts pt 2: collab with KarenD : I was talking the other day about how quilts acquire names in the process of making them. We always called this one "the fish quilt" after the nickname of one of the recipients - and we did put a tropical-fish print on the back, as I recall. (posted Dec 31, 11:28am)

Eric's!Daily!Horoscope! by Starzina Starfish-Browne (30)

The One Where Starzina Wrings Out The Old Year‏ : We trust YouPeople all have lovely NewYearsEve plans. We Our Own Self Personally shall be murder-mysterying. Which, while making Us happy that We will be making money, also means that We shall be spending Our New Years Eve with eighty-odd people who think murder-mystery dinner-theater is a really good way to ring in the new year.

Chaos Attraction by Jennifer (32)

Doris Mash by Doris Mash (31)

Looking forward to 2014 : I reckon 2014 will be a year of consolidation hopefully peppered with a few more new activities. One of which will be my returning to college one evening a week for sixteen weeks in order to extend my qualifications. Once again I will no doubt be the oldest girl in the beauty school and (posted Dec 31, 9:48am)

Patrick's Daily Journal by Patrick (32)

Best of 2013 : Every year on New Year’s Eve, I make a list of the 10 best things that happened over the past 365 days. Here’s my list for 2013: (posted Dec 31, 9:31am)

Where's My Plan? by John (31)

Polygamy, the law, and brain-washing : She took a passionate stand against polygamy, even among consenting adults. Her essential point was that the women involved in plural marriages have been brain-washed to believe that they have to participate in and defend the institution in order to go to heaven, and thus polygamy should be illegal. (posted Dec 31, 7:02am)

Visible Woman by LB (32)

Not Stopping Now...What We Do and Why We Do It : Looking back, fondly. Not nostalgia really. Not wanting to be there at that stage. Just wanting to think a bit about how it was to be there. For us. And for a stranger. (posted Dec 31, 6:07am)

A Day in the Life on the Farm by Wendy Klik (29)

Last Day of the Year=Last Holidailies : First and Foremost I am looking forward to my CA trip so I can spend some time with my brother, sil, their kids and grandkids. I will see my cousin while I am there and hopefully my aunt too. (posted Dec 31, 6:05am)

baldy hill homestead by Rachel (24)

welcome winter! : Winter is here — happy Solstice! And my two-week vacation has officially begun — could not be happier! We celebrated the start of my break last night by traveling to Bethlehem (PA) for a dinner out, and what a treat that was — aloo gobi for me and vindaloo for James. Highly recommend Nawab if you find yourself in our ... (posted Dec 31, 5:07am)

Kia's Corner by Kia Zi Shiru (28)

Holidalies 27: Why 2013 is a year full of failure and I’m ok : This year I had a lot of plans that had to do with publishing and writing and I failed most of them, for various reasons. And I’m okay with it, which is something I hadn’t expected. Here are my reasons why. (posted Dec 31, 4:59am)

Doris Mash by Doris Mash (31)

Family Birthday : Birthdays mixed in with festival times can be so unfair. The festival takes priority and sadly the birthday can become a bit of an afterthought. There was one significant year (posted Dec 30, 11:51pm)

Funny the World by Bev Sykes (32)

Old Friends : Today it only had to sustain us through a Greek lunch in a freezing restaurant (the silverware was too cold to touch comfortably!) with the slowest waitress in town. (posted Dec 30, 11:33pm)

this is the nonsensical mass that is my life. welcome. by Raychela (13)

stuff (a list post of random thoughts) : ☆I’m not sure why I can be ready to conk out at 10pm, decide to stay up a little later, and it suddenly be 5am and I can’t sleep. ☆There’s like a never ending supply of naughty food in my house that I have little willpower against. Why won’t it just go away?! ☆My hair is super brassy and looks ... (posted Dec 30, 8:32pm)

Another Spot of Randomness by Alanna the Hobbit (28)

Holidailies Day 30: A Songbird, I Am : Talk about finding Jesus in the odd places. This is a Death Cab for Cutie song, and after the first verse and chorus it loses the parallel to some degree, but this first verse catches me every time. (posted Dec 30, 8:00pm)

Help for the Holidays by porchsitter (31)

The Nature Psalms : God can be prayed to and worshiped in so many ways. When I am in nature or watching nature it is God the Father and Creator of the world I see, speak to, and worship. I am totally in awe of everything from brilliant blue skies that turn stormy or dazzle into sunsets, to a lightning bug landing on my ... (posted Dec 30, 7:36pm)

MissMeliss: Bathtub Mermaid by MissMeliss (29)

You say Slumgullion, I say Schlumgallian : For me, improvisation in the kitchen generally begins with sauteing onion and garlic in olive oil. I mean, really, what can’t you do with onion and garlic? So we started with that. And we added some 98% lean organic grass-fed ground beef that was mostly defrosted because I remembered to take it out earlier, but not really early enough. (posted Dec 30, 7:12pm)

The Electronic Replicant by Erik (16)

Metablogging : As the year draws to a close, I think it might be fun to use a couple of online tools to look back at this year of blogging. (posted Dec 30, 6:59pm)

Where's My Plan? by John (31)

New Year's Eve : This may not sound like the most exciting New Year's Eve to some, but I can say definitively that it's a far better way to spend the last day of the year than being broke up with. (posted Dec 30, 1:26pm)

The One Where Starzina Meets Velveeta™ : (Parenthetically (hence the parentheses), when We Googled “Jean Valjean” on Wikipedia to verify the spelling, We learned that there is a Frawnch porn star named Jean Val Jean. And We thought We’d Cher that information with you. You’re welcome.) Meanwhile, if you have never enjoyed Our review of the fillum version of Les Miz, please go here (We’ll wait): (posted Dec 30, 10:58am)

Markings: Days of Her Life by Margaret DeAngelis (23)

It Is December in the Garden : On so many of [the cards I want to send] I want to write more personal notes to. Remember our conversation in Staples in 2008? or I’ve never forgotten the get-well gift you brought after my thyroid surgery in 1988, or I haven’t seen you since August. When are you coming back?

Visible Woman by LB (32)

Too Many Clothes, Not Enough Wardrobe : ...looking at this picture...started to wonder why it looked like I had on a collection of winter scarves or a bunch of layers like the bag lady I usually resemble on my walks....Which got me thinking about my wardrobe. (posted Dec 30, 8:19am)

baldy hill homestead by Rachel (24)

the tree : The tree makes the season complete for me. During the years we lived in southern Spain without a proper winter, or at least the kind of winters I was accustomed to, and without a tree, I always felt something was missing come Christmas and the winter holidays. Since we moved to Baldy Hill, a fresh-cut tree is a winter treat ... (posted Dec 30, 6:34am)

Elbowglitter by Megan (19)

Old and Cranky : My high school driving instructor used to do his house up with insane amounts of decorations, including a rocket that “launched.” As someone with a January birthday, my driving lessons occasionally involved a trip to go buy more lights. (posted Dec 30, 4:56am)
