I interrupt this post with a most important message. I just received an email from BlogHer stating that:
We loved your post, VHI or MTV, so much that we selected it to be promoted on the BlogHer.com homepage today, in the Featured Member section of the site. We’ll also be promoting it on the BlogHer Facebook and Twitter accounts. Thanks for blogging on BlogHer.com.
WHAT!!!!! That would be yesterdays post about my rant on music videos. I'm so excited although that post is not one of my best. I guess I need to really get over this writers block thing don't you think. (By the way this is post number 998.)
On to writing. It's funny that I get this email now. This posting every day has been hard and caused me to think about not blogging anymore, but I'm a bit renewed by this nod. I know it is probably just because I was next in the list of many but I will take it in any way I can. An ego boost is always a good, don't you think.
This past weekend I have accomplished so much around the house and I have a great sense of, well accomplishment. The tree is up and the house decorated for the holidays. My laundry is done and put away and that includes the several baskets that were clean but being lived out of . My bad, as that is such a horrible habit. The whole house has been organized and picked up and ready for a good wash down by the house cleaner today, just in time for the first dinner party tomorrow night. There were to be 4 couples but I received an email that one of the husbands won't be here. Drat. Oh well, onward. My menu is planned and simple. I have a list for the grocery store, liquor store and Whole Foods for flowers and appetizer stuff. Next week is to be the second dinner party with 9 people in attendance and the same menu.
Appetizer: olive medley, various cheeses, crackers and wine
Filet of Beef Bourguignon
Apple Cranberry cobbler
What do you think?
Then comes the end of the week which is very full for me. Actually, the next week and a half is stuffed with stuff. Friday is payday, pick up art at TCC show, birthday luncheon for cousins birthday (I'm not doing, just attending). Saturday is another luncheon of the Alpha Rho Tau art group. This is a big one. Sunday daughter B wanted to do a jewelry show like last year at her friends house. Kind of an open house sale for a few hours but the friend does not want to do it. Well friends, I've opened up my house. There will be several vendors hawking their wares including some of my art!!!! It's kind of scary to have strangers in my house but they are mostly friends of the girl and some of mine. If you are in the area, Tulsa, and wish to come shopping for Christmas goodies, contact me via email (ebby43 at aol dot com) and I will give you the address. Sunday 1-4, Dec 5. There will be a few snacks so bring credit cards, cash or check and enjoy. Later Gators. Happy Holidays!
