Behind the Scenes

So I’m behind the scenes working on some stuff and I’m not quite ready to talk about any of it at this point. But to give you a sneak peek (Sundays are all about sneak peeks with me lately – check back later for the Monday Morning Meme sneak peek questions) of what I’ve been up to …

1. I’m working on importing my old Reflections entries from my previous self-hosted blog. One of the biggest reasons I blog is to leave a part of me behind for my family/children/grandchildren and I have several books (Reflections from a Mother’s Heart, Between Me and You – Mom Edition, Between Me and You – Honey Edition, and The Book of Myself) that I’ve been systematically answering questions from that I would like to document and post here for anyone interested enough about me and the life I led to read later on down the road. I’m currently writing new entries and will be posting those at irregular intervals in the weeks ahead.

2. Looking up these books has gotten me in the mood for a giveaway – a little something to honor Father’s day … check back next week for details on that.

3. I’ve also been researching charities for the 2008 Blog-a-thon that I’ve decided to do unofficially. (The official Blog-a-thon organization is taking the year off but I feel pretty strongly about continuing the tradition of blogging for charity so I’m going to go ahead and participate this year on an unofficial level). And I’ve decided to blog for a cause that has always tugged at my heartstrings – Operation Homefront. I’ve started a page that will explain more about the charity and how I plan to blog about it (keep checking back as the page evolves), so I won’t go into too many details here. Suffice it to say, this is going to be an emotional blog-a-thon – have a full box of tissues close at hand.

4. And last but not least, I just found out that my blog has been nominated for two of the ten categories from Kailani’s 2008 Bloggy Hoss Awards. WHOA. I was shocked to see my name listed among so many talented bloggers. And these folks are certainly more entertaining than I’ve ever been, believe me. I’m very humbled by the honor – thank you. I’ve been nominated for the Brainiest and Most Talkative categories. I’m sure the brainiest category has to be wrong but I’m reluctant to bring it anyone’s attention because they will most likely gasp in horror and rip my name right off of there. *grin* But the most talkative ….? Yeah, I can see that one. 😉

If you have a few minutes, please visit Kailani’s blog and vote for me! And while you’re at it, click over and visit all of the wonderful people that have been nominated – talk about a stellar group of people!

As always, thank you for visiting my humble abode and I wish each and every one of you a FABULOUS Sunday! *blows a huge sloppy kiss to everyone in the room*
