Sunday Synopsis: April 10, 2011

I'm back!!!!!!  It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks, but I am glad to be home and finally getting caught up on my multitude of projects.  I'm hoping to be back to normal posting this week, including finally posting my April Fairy Tale Challenge Check-In and my review of March's Tales to Tomes selection of Dogsbody.  Be watching for them!!

In the last couple of weeks, I traveled back to my home town to attend my Grandfather's funeral services.  It was a very difficult weekend (even beyond the lost luggage and delayed flights!), but it felt so good to be with family and surrounded by so much support and familiar friendly faces.  I am still in shock at the number of people in attendance at the services (it was literally hundreds!) and the number of cards my family has received.  It brings me to tears every time that I read how this wonderful man inspired and encouraged so many people throughout his lifetime.  I cannot be more proud to be his granddaughter!  Now the healing begins and we all work to get back to the "normal" life . . . whatever that may be!

I thank you all for your thoughts, condolences, and support.  And, I wish you all the best in your reading and beyond!
