2012: the year in review

Favorite movie: I didn’t have a favorite movie per se, but by genre, here’s what I liked best. Comedy: Friends with Benefits. Horror: The Cabin in the Woods. (What a unique film this was!) Drama: The Hunger Games (a great story made even better by Jennifer Lawrence).

Favorite television: Without a doubt, The Walking Dead (this has a good chance of being my favorite series ever). I also highly enjoy Breaking Bad. While it was a little slow last year, it was probably all setup for the final season, for which I have high expectations. And, I started watching Sons of Anarchy at the end of the year. Not sure how this will rank in the grand scheme of things, but I do enjoy looking at Jax Teller for now.

Favorite music: I’m still hung up on the Foo Fighters. I don’t think I bought any “new” music in 2012. 2013 holds much promise, though.

We went to Forest County for vacation and we had so much fun we’re going back in 2013!

It was a great year for the garden. The weather got nice in March and pretty much stayed that way for the rest of the season. I canned a bunch of stuff (but not enough tomatoes). Jake made me a couple of raised garden beds so I was able to plant even more stuff (and, in one of the raised beds, I planted a fall garden in a hoop house, too).

Other notable achievements: we paid off the house which was a good thing because we had to buy a new vehicle; and, we learned how to make cheese.

I have a good feeling about 2013 and not just because 13 is my lucky number (I don’t believe in luck, by the way).
