Sunday Synopsis: January 2, 2011

Can you believe it is 2011?!?  It is already the second day and I can definitely say that I have already begun working on at least one of my goals!  Woohoo!!  Not bad considering that in the last week, my dryer broke (again!), we were victims of identity theft (ack!), and a tornado hit our neighborhood (yowza!)!  Our home was not damaged, but there was a bit of debris in our yard from those that did suffer damage, including shingles, gutter covers, and insulation.  Thankfully, no one was hurt!  And, I am working on keeping with the positive in all of this . . . hence, my writing!

At the time that I write this post, I have written and scheduled five . . . yep, five! . . . posts for this very blog!  I've actually mapped out a plan for most days during this month in fact!  It is such a great feeling and it makes me realize just how long it is going to take me to catch up on back reviews!!  It feels so good to have written so much!  And, I have not even counted a couple of other writing projects that I have completed today!  I am really hoping to do a little bit of writing almost every single day this year . . . whether it is for one of my blogs, one of the newsletters that I write, or something simply for myself.  With so many possibilities, I am always allowing myself some options!

Unfortunately, on this second day of the new year, I have not really fulfilled my other goals as of yet . . . reading and exercising; therefore, as soon as I get this published, I will be heading over to my elliptical and get my body moving while reading!  It's been so long since I have worked out that I think I need to take it slow to get back in the groove!

So, in wrapping up this Sunday Synopsis, I am going to give you a quick summary of what to expect this week . . .  my "Best of" List, a check-in on my 2010 and upcoming 2011 challenges, a couple of books I'm adding to my wish list, a possible review or two, and my final assigned Fairy Tale Friday.  And, what has been all the bombardment of posts this past week?  I've updated my current challenges (a summary is coming soon!).  I've shared my goals for the upcoming year.  I announced my new challenge, the 2011 Fairy Tale Challenge (will you be joining me?).  I discussed Thumbling for Fairy Tale Fridays.  Lastly, I shared the Christmas Loot for the princess, the super kid, the chef, and the reader!

I will leave you with a picture of our dinner last night that my husband made using new Julia Child's cookbook . . . I can't remember exactly which recipe it is, but I will find out and maybe have my husband share a bit of a review from it!
