Yes, I’m doing the cliché blogging thing and making a year-in-review post. It’s fun to go back and pick out my favorite posts and experience from the year that’s ending. So, here’s a summary of the past twelve months of Rebecca in the Woods.
- In January, I marveled at the fact that I apparently live in one of the coldest places in the contiguous 48 states.
- In February, a wolf killed a deer within sight of my house.
- In March, I admired the first butterfly of spring, a Mourning Cloak.
- In April, I melted at the cuteness of a newly-hatched baby painted turtle.
- In May, my butterfly obsession reached new heights.
- In June, among many other things, I encountered a redbelly snake and wrote about how lakes become bogs.
- In July, I watched a Whooping Crane take a bath and a spider eat a dragonfly.
- In August, I photographed my first slime mold and admired some frog camouflage.
- In September, I got to help harvest honey from the school’s beehives.
- In October, my favorite posts included the one about why tamaracks shed their needles in the fall and the one about spores.
- In November, I went to Arizona and defeated my nemesis bird! In honor of Thanksgiving (sort of), I also wrote some musings on gratitude.
- In December, I examined some raccoon tracks in the snowy woods.
And of course, 2012 is also the year that I became a real published writer, too. Click on the “About” tab above and scroll down for links to my magazine articles.
