First of all, Tamara, of Thyme for Tea, has very kindly awarded me a “Kreativ Blogger” award, and said very nice things about my blog. Thanks so much, Tamara! It’s always nice to meet new blogging friends, and it was lovely to receive your award and feel so appreciated.
Also, Nymeth is coordinating her Book Bloggers Christmas Swap again this year. I enjoyed it last year and decided that I’ll do it again this year. It’s a nice way of meeting new blogging friends and celebrating the holidays! If you would like to join us, read Nymeth’s post about it, but the deadline for signing up is November 18th, so hurry! Thanks, Nymeth!
And finally, while at the library this week, I picked up the audiobook version of Paul Theroux’s The Old Patagonian Express, which I thought sounded just perfect for my ‘desperately seeking sunshine personal reading challenge.‘ It is! So this weekend I’ll be both knitting (I’ve started something new for the Grandboy) and “traveling south” with Paul Theroux…a very nice reward for finally finishing filling out those report cards!
