Another year has passed. How was it for you? A good year? A bad year? A blah yeah?
Do you know why you are supposed to say “Seasonal greetings” or “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” in respect for other religions and cultures, but everyone still wishes a “Happy New Year” even though there are cultures and religions with other calendars?
Anyways, its the time of the year to look back on the last year 😉 A year ago to the day I started blogging again and I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, liking and commenting my humble posts! By the way, my last post actually was the 1000th post on this blog. 😮
The year started with preparing for my first “test-tour” to Lübeck by crafting a helmet for Button and then cycling it. It was hard for me after 50km my legs really hurt, but I still managed to cycle all the way back 2 days later. So I felt I could do a multi-day bicycle tour in May and started preparing for that.
But as it sometimes is life got in the way, and I got tenosynovitis instead and my “thumbless days” started. Thank you all again for your support and well-wishes.
In June, I could finally get to start my tour. And beside some bad times, and way too many hills I had to push up, I loved it. So while telling you about all the gear I had with me on tour, I was already planning the next trip.
While doing that, of course, I kept sewing, for bicycling and for everyday life, knitting, weaving, crocheting and taking (analogue) pictures:
In Germany, we wish “Guten Rutsch” which translates to “good slide” into the new year:
Guten Rutsch and keep smiling
