It's quite simple: the first sentence of the first entry for each month in 2017. Here's what my livejournal world looked like in 2017.
Jan: I try very hard to be mindful, to appreciate my life and the blessings I have.
Feb: After 5 faithful years with my iphone 4S (bought in 2012 as a treat to get me back to work after having patrick!) it has finally given up the ghost.
Apr: It's been a lovely long Easter Weekend.
July: Patrick's Birthday this year had an all-out snake theme, appropriate since Patrick's favourite "animals" are... "snakes, scorpions, geckos!"
Aug: This little packet of tea and friendship landed in my mailbox before my holidays.
Nov: I couldn't decide whether it had been longer since my last hair cut & colour (july 8th) or my last blog (Aug 19th), but then I checked and the hair has been neglected longest.
Dec: The steam train to the Sihlwald forest, to meet Schmutzli (helper to Father Christmas), the real life donkey, and Samichlaus is one of our favourite advent rituals.
