A Week Abounding in Blog Surprises
Also, things are going slow because I am trying to keep up my blog posting and some commenting on your blogs while having some busy summer events coming my way. Forgive me if I've missed some of your posts of late, but I'm trying to do my best.
Last Saturday I was reading a lovely post by Jules at Trying To Get Over The Rainbow and I was thinking about how much what she was saying related to what I had been thinking in recent days, then lo and behold here she gives me a shout out. This was just one of those cool things I had to mention on my blog. Check out her blog and give her a hello. I always enjoy reading what she has to say.
My Tossing It Out Tuesday feature began this past week with the topic of Junk Mail. Ellie from Ella's Edge showed how one can turn junk into Recycled Treasures-- a far better solution than merely tossing it out. I don't know if she'll come up with a way to recycle my next topic for this coming Tuesday when I'll be talking about junk e-mail.
This past week had several surprises for me. One was Yvonne Lewis's tribute to my Wednesday post, My Grandmother's Air Baths. If you missed it, check out Yvonne's hilarious poem, Air Baths. Yvonne always amazes us how quickly she can get a topical poem onto her blog. Next Wednesday I am going to tell you about the first public performance of one of my musical works.
As always, I'll be having seven days of eclectic blogism to share with all of you so I hope you'll join me right here at Tossing It Out.
Alex J Cavanaugh is holding a contest to celebrate reaching 200 followers. By the time you get there he might already be at 300--excitement about his upcoming book CassaStar is abuzz as the chatter is all over the blogosphere. And if you haven't seen it yet, check out his CassaStar book trailer.
On a sad note, Blabbin' Grammy Ruby's husband (Gramps) passed away this past week. Many of us have been keeping track of Gramps and Grammy's life and know that Gramps has been dealing with a lot of suffering of late. If you haven't done so already, please stop by to express your condolences to Blabbin' Grammy. We love you, Ruby, and are praying for you.
Have a nice weekend and enjoy your summer--it's going fast!
