The Sunday Salon (April 19)

I want to congratulate all of those who participated in the Read-a-thon, there was some impressive reading going on for 24 hours around the blogging world and in support of their charities. I was gone most of the day but attempted to check in later in the day showing my support to several bloggers that I knew were participating. I am going to consider doing this next year or whenever the next one comes around. My son may want to try doing this with me as he loves to read and would love the chance to attempt to stay up for 24 hours. This would be a good opportunity to support a food allergy charity as well. Hnmm....I'll have to give that some serious thought.

I announced the Winners of I Love, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti............ but sadly, I haven't heard back from 2 of the winners after several emails. So, I've had to choose 2 new lucky winners.

~Christina and Wanda~


I've also been very fortunate to have been bestowed several awards. I've been remiss in posting them sooner.

I want to thank Bobbie for bestowing me with two awards:

First, is the Premio Dardas Award:

This award acknowledges the the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.

The Second award is the beautiful, One Lovely Blog Award. Please make sure to visit Bobbie's lovely blog, Book Reviews by Bobbie.

Mary has also given me not one but two wonderful awards! Thanks Mary!

Mary has given me the Splash award:

This award is for blogs that inspire, awe, allure, amuse, bewitch or impress you.

What an honor! Thank you, Mary! Please make sure to visit Mary's wonderful blog at Bookfan-Mary.

The second award is the Zombie Chicken Award:

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all..."

Please make sure to check out both Bobbie's andMary's wonderful Blogs, these are two great ladies! So, I don't incur the wrath of the zombie chicken....I am passing on all of these awards to my readers. Pick one or all and pass them along!!

  6. congrats on all of the awards!

    Food allergies, huh? What kind of allergies? My husband is allergic to all fresh fruits and vegetables. He can eat them if they are cooked or out of a can, but it is a little frustrating sometimes. I would love a cure!!
