Crafting and Creating; Photography and Poetry
I ran across several blogs hosting challenges for 2012. Here’s my early commitment to such
I’ve added the sites to my sidebar as well as created a page for them. The book challenges I’ll keep updated at that page. New challenges may be added at will.
The rules, as copied from the respective sites:
Causes on Facebook prompted me to do this, and I thought I’d give it a try.
Happy Birthday to Me!
For my birthday on August 14th, I’m asking my online community for a special gift: help me raise $100 for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
I chose Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières because they provide impartial humanitarian action, independent from all political, economic and religious powers. (yes I copied that from the site)
Please consider giving to my Birthday Wish, and together we can make a difference. If you can’t give now, I’d really appreciate if you’d share this page with your friends.
Thanks so much,
At the end of March, DrQuuxum and I headed out on our annual road trip. This year, we set out for Chicago with their plethora of zoos. There are FOUR AZA zoos in Chicago: Lincoln Park, Brookfield, Shedd Aquarium, and Cosley. And there’s the Field Museum with Sue. Sadly, a bout with food poisoning limited us to just Brookfield and Shedd. On the way home, we stopped at the Toledo Zoo; so we did at least make three zoos on this trip. And we were left with an excuse to return to Chicago at some point.
Almost a month ago, in the midst of my March madness (which had nothing to do with basketball), Lynnaima from Life: Between the Lines nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you! It caught me a bit by surprise, and I have stared at the comment she left me with a “now what do I do?” deer in the headlights look. I’m working on ramping up some of the more social aspects of blogging. I know I love comments, but I’m never sure what to say on others pages. Some of the folks I’ve nominated below probably don’t realize how much I enjoy their blogs, because I’m so quiet. I have the same issue in real life too.
Three other sites need special mention: SiS, Cloaked Monk, and NaPoWriMo. Between these three, they started and keep me writing here.
