Monday Miscellany

Thanks to all of the Sparkfest and Platform-Building Campaigners who have stopped by to say hello. That's been really wonderful. I love meeting new people here.


While I was out visiting new blogs this week I found this perfect AWARD that I want to share with some bloggers I've been in touch with and who deserve to be followed because they write some wonderful posts.  So here's the ONE TO FOLLOW award for:


Bish Denham (She shares such beautiful memories of her childhood that I feel I know her.)
MPax (A science fiction writer with some great posts about the possibilities in the future.)
Lyn Nerd (She cracks me up with her zany blog. Anyone who can make me laugh should be followed. IMHO)
Kelly Pollark (Vivacious, beautiful AND a family girl. I value family, so I wanted Kelly to get this one.)
Shelly Koon (I've just met her, but she loves the kinds of books I do, so I wanted to give her this.)


Hope you'll stop by these blogs and say hello and enjoy them as much as I have.










I'm in the middle of my garden harvest and if you've visited before you know that means I'm likely to go overboard about vegetables soon. Last year I did a whole series on PAIRING books with food. This year I'm not sure what I'll do, but it will definitely link my love of the literary with my love of fresh, seasonal foods.


Look out! As September approaches, I'm all about food.

  2. Congrats on the well deserved award! And thank you so much for awarding it to me! And yes, I'm so glad that people do realize what a big family person I am. Family is always first with me! :)
    Enjoy your garden. My hubby had a veggie garden a few summers ago, and I loved going in the backyard to pick fresh food for dinner!

  4. Wow thanks Lee! I am so touched. I'm so envious of your garden and having a harvest. Yesterday it was 107 here in Texas, today 104. No reprieve from the heat, no rain in sight. We are turning to dust.

  7. Thank you so much Lee! I am so honored that I find myself speechless (that NEVER happens :P). I am going to out my new shiny award up as soon as I get break here.

    Did I mention I am WAY excited?

    So - I'm curious, what's growing in the garden? I would love to have one but the dogs think gardening is a game in which I plant and they dig back up...

  18. Wow, Lee, what a super surprise. Awesome award, and thanks so much for passing it on to me. With the birth of my grandson, it's been a wonderful week, and this award makes it even sweeter! I wanted to join in the campaign, but I knew I couldn't keep up with it with the new baby. Hope you're having fun with it. Glad to hear you're sleeping well these days, and I hope it continues when you start your next story. Thanks again, Lee!
