I've heard that how you spend either New Year's Eve or New Year's Day is how you'll spend the rest of the new year. Not that I believe it or anything (grin), but so far, it has always proved true for me. So, this past weekend I made sure to be productive. :)
Of course, NYE wasn't as productive as NYD, but I'm telling myself it was still time well spent - mainly relaxing, getting caught up on blog friends' posts, spending time with my daughter, and planning ahead for the following week. Yesterday involved a lot of cleaning, organizing, reading, plotting, budget forecasting, cooking, and making healthy food choices. If the rest of the year goes the same, I could live with that. :)
Sidney Williams had a nice blog about the challenge of keeping the old tooshey in the chair and the hands on the keyboard, and I took away some good tips from his link to the Pomodoro Technique. I'm putting them into practice today.
Also, if you haven't read Edie Ramer's Cattitude yet, it's available free until tomorrow.
Charles Gramlich also has a new, humorous book out: Days of Beer: A Memoir of a Beer Drinkin' Man.
And I'm happy to report that Avery DeBow is planning to get back into the writing and publishing scene this year. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with.
These are just a few things off the top of my head - I'm sure there's much more news. How are you hoping to spend this year?
