The Sunday Salon – It’s that time of the year

Its almost December, the month when the loonies with credit card clutched tightly in their fist comes out of hibernation, it also the month when kids ready to throw a tantrum as the slightest indication that they wont be getting that desperately needed gift from the big guy are let loose in supermarket and department store – I hate that..…

For me it’s the month when I stay closer to home to avoid the madness, I also start planning and sorting out some of the things I want to get done for next year and it’s also the month when I meet all the kidlets teachers to see how the first term of the school year has been so far…

On the blog.

The Erotic/a Romance Reading Challenge is on it’s final month and I am hoping I can get round to all the participants this week to check up on their status…

Most participants have completed the challenge months ago, If you haven’t post your completed list, Make sure you jump over to the ERRC blog and add your link..

The 2011 challenge sign up sheet will go up soon as well…

With These words

I have finally gotten round to doing a post for getting involved in the With These Words feature on my blog…  so new authors drop me a line if you want to book your slot and let us know about your  first foray into the publishing world..

A few days closure

I will be taking a few days off from the blog later on in the month, around the 21th until the next week as I want to give some of the stuff that I know will crop up some undivided attention.

I also want to spend some time finishing up some of the mini albums that I normally give as pressies to my friends and family over the world…  I am also my family’s historian and I do try to catch up on births and death at this time of the year, for people who do genealogy you will know how time consuming that venture is – but I love doing it..

Here are a few pic of an album I am doing now and some tags…

I am a big fan of journaling, so I try to keep some tags for writing memories on..

One of the kidlet is making a very simply one for one of the girlfriends – he found these yesterday when we were in the market.. I told him it’s going to cause problem, because whichever girl he gives it to she is bound to show it off and the other girl friends are going to come calling…

He has been warned!!!!!!

 

Have you guys dragged out the diaries or calendar yet to get organised or are you just winging it and dealing with stuff as they crop up?

 

Until next week – cheers


From  site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.

That should be a refreshing change, EH. Give the abstract wordage of the blogginga a temporary rest and indulge yourself with the tactile and visual elements of the scrapbooking. Enjoy!
