A New Year, A New Challenge

2010 is here, and with it, I have decided to challenge myself.

A friend did a post entitled 'Has blogging died?' and this got me thinking. I admit to being a naughty blog reader, in as far as not clicking through to leave a comment, due to the ease of Bloglines, but I aim to improve that in the coming weeks and months. And I also admit to missing the comments that use to come with regular blog updates. And as far as I'm concerned, facebook doesn't cut it over a blog - not for me anyhow :-P

Something about a post made on The Craft Blog hit the spot for me. The blogger is keeping a journal entitled "365 days of Awesome" to document her year. I LOVE this idea - not only does documenting the everyday appeal to me but so does the word 'awesome', as my 4 yo uses this word all the time, and it cracks me up.

So this is my self-imposed challenge : My 365 Days of Everyday Awesome.

2010 looks to be a year of variety for me - we are still renovating though nearing the end, bub #3 is due mid April, I've just gotten a new camera so will be learning & playing with that, I am still loving art & crafting - scrapping, knitting, crochet, sewing and I hope to add onto that with acrylic painting on canvas, I am trying to make the most of my new kitchen with cooking and trying out new recipes and of course there are friends & family to spend time with.
I hope to post daily, as much as possible, and with images, as much as I can. A visit to a pc shop tomorrow should help me with the latter :-P

So to start off - today's everyday awesomeness...
Cooking side-by-side with my hubby in our new kitchen - DH attempting Sticky Date Pudding for the very first time, and me attempting Nigella Lawson's Banana Bread (found in this book) for the first time too. We've decided that we have to try out a new recipe everytime we have people over for dinner - tonight the test subjects, um, I mean guests..lol...are Roh's parents.

Hope everyone is enjoying Day 1 of 2010!
