Okay so here is what a recap Carnival is. You take the first sentence, of the first post of each month and copy it here. When I went to do mine I realized I only blogged for 6 months this year. So I decided to pull the beginning line of the first and last post of those month.
beginning:We had a terrific New Year's Eve.
end: I've been wanting to fill our water table with rice or Cheerios for a while now.
beginning: It's been months, about 6 to be more accurate.
end:Today I was planning on taking kids to the local Lakeshore Learning Store.
beginning: This year is the first year I actually got joy from my garden.
end: These pictures may be hard to tell what is going on, I apologize for that.
beginning: I love my house, every square inch.
end :We had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend.
beginning: More Bentos.end: December has been a really busy Bento month for us.
What I've learned from this is that I am generally pretty positive...loving holidays, my home, my garden and bentos. It's funny how that new obsession comes out in just 12 lines. But I also see that I need grabbier first lines. My writing leaves a lot to be desired, but I've enjoyed writing just the same.
I'm really looking forward to what new things will pop into my life this year. Lots of plans and lots to look forward to in 2011. Happy New Year!
