The Friday Mashup of Goodness
It’s been a week and a half. I’m digging into YouTube, figuring out Pinterest, using my son as my personal assistant and learning how to work that relationship (as I’m paying him, too) as well as write, read, be a good worker bee and a better wife/mom. As I work out my plans for the blog/life/everything, some posts aren’t getting written and I do apologize!
However, I have links I’d like to share!
Leonie Dawson has a terrific article on her blog about the Four Commandments of Being Creative: How Not To Freak Out Fuc* It Up or Flounder Your Magical Idea – something all of us could use.
For those of you who are constantly surprised to find food that is growing its own civilization in your refrigerator, there’s this gem that my brother found – it’s called The Shelf Life of Food. I think we should all post it on the fridge, don’t you?
Shelly Johnson has a post today called Simplifying Won’t Kill You (And It Just May Save Your Life) that everyone should read. I’m now itching to clean out my closets, and if you know me, you know that’s an aberration.
My good friend Catie Rhodes has an awesome post up today called Grave Houses – Cities of the Dead that you really must read.
And to top it off, Aaron Michael Ritchey (Awesome Author of The Never Prayer) interviewed me, and we’re giving away books to people who comment. Aaron needs comment love so I’d appreciate it if you’d shower him with some.
In Other News…
Here in So Cal, it’s going to be a warm weekend. An easy travel wine is the Sofia Blanc de Blancs, a sparkling wine in a small can. Yeah, I know. But sunshine, a can of sparkling wine, some grapes and cheese and crackers, and a walk along the beach. Go for it – get your vitamin D in naturally, move those bodies, feel alive.
Thanks so much for dropping by. Oh, and did I mention that if you comment over at Aaron’s place on one of the two blog posts, you might win a copy of one of my novels? Go on! Comment! You know you want to…
~ Until the next time, cheers – and remember to drink responsibly! ~
Demon Soul and Demon Hunt are all available for the Kindle and Kobo! Have you fallen into the Caine Brothers’ world yet?
I’m so jealous. You’re hitting on all cylinders with these blogs. As soon as I can get my stuff rearranged I’m jumping on board with you.
Rhenna my dear, I’ve been blogging for just over two years now. Still have a lot to learn. You’ll get there, I swear! Huge hugs hon!
Thanks for the great links. And I have to say I had the most delicious wine the other night at WP24, a magnificient restaurant downtown. But for the life of me, I can’t remember its name.
LOL…I know, that happens to me all the time, Janie! Cheers hon!
Great links, thanks, Christine. Have a great weekend.
You too, Roben!
Great links C. I like your blog and website. It’s all fresh and light and you make it look easy. It makes the whole thing a bit less intimidating for me. Thx!
Hugs, Mary Ann! So glad you found me here. The blog needs “freshening”, but I’m glad you like it!
So…let me get this straight. Food has a shelf life?! 🙂
Have a great weekend, Christine.
I know, right, Sam? Who’da THUNK! It does explain why the leftovers were talking takeover of the top shelf of the fridge, though…
Of course when you drink a great wine you can’t remember its name. That’s the whole point, isn’t it? 😉
Love the links. Lots of good awesomeness there. And I’m totally blown away by how organized and purposeful you’ve become. You rock!
Thanks, Sarah! I’m learning. Growing. Loving it! Cheers hon!
Amazing list of articles to read! I just placed this post on my reading list so that I can check everything out throughout this week. Will checkout your interview with Ritchey first. -Kara
Hey, thanks, Kara! Aaron is a great guy and interviews with him are always a hoot. Cheers!
