Welcome to the July 1st Foodie Friday, where recipes abound and copper is king--well, for this post, anyway.
"All I ever wanted in life was true love, a set of copper cookware, and the perfect recipe for red velvet cake. The last thing I wanted was to end up on Charleston's six o'clock news, accused of murder and a slew of other crimes."
There's just something elegant and timeless about copper.
For other cool giveaways, visit The World According to Teeny. The Kindle contest ends July 10th, so there's still time to enter. The goodie-stuffed beach bag contest (which includes an autographed copy of GWAHM), ends July 10th, too.
Or maybe you'd love a "Teeny," vintage lemon coin purse (not the one in the book--that one will be given away later this summer)?
Here's a sampling of the giveaways:
The World According to Teeny.
The Week In ReviewWhat's going on in your neck of the woods? These days, I rarely leave home--I'm working on revisions for Teeny 2--and I'd love to know what you are doing this summer.
As for Bald Hill Farm, ducklings and baby pheasants arrived via US Mail. The PO guys were relieved when we showed up to collect the boxes, which were labeled "bio-hazard" and emitted relentless peeps. The PO guys eagerly helped us load the boxes into the truck.
UPDATE: A glitch in Blogger won't let me post comments, even to my own blog/s, but I wanted to mention that the ducks, geese, and pheasants are our pets. All of the animals on the farm are pets. We aren't gathering eggs this summer because we're encouraging our hens to "set" on their nests so we'll have chicks.
As for non-farming activities, I've been catching up on blogging. I write posts in batches, usually around 11 pm, and schedule them; but this week, Blogspot fired off my posts willy-nilly, ignoring my scheduling edicts. Nor would Blogger let me comment--even on my own blog.
How I Find Time To Blog and Write Fiction was published on the heels of Interior Design 101 for Writers, along with a bunch of Teeny posts, including part 2 of the Spencer-Jackson House's dish collection.
Then, last night, Blogspot started hiccuping again, and posts were eaten; others were accidentally published, including a test post for Foodie Friday. When I'm finished with the revisions to Teeny 2, I'll probably move the Acquainted With the Night blog to Wordpress. Has anyone made the move without regrets? If so, I'd love to hear your comments.
Just in case Blogger goes down again, I'm posting Foodie Friday a bit early.
