Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the weekly round up and I hope that your weekend is going well. We have had a very special visitor from America who arrived on Friday and it did David and I the power of good to be in the company of such a delightful, articulate and successful young woman. We have known her parents for over 30 years and have seen her grown from a beautiful baby into this accomplished adult.. What a pleasure.

Anyway… In honour of the visit, the sun came out on Thursday and I was able to get some of my pots refurbished…the job is not finished yet.. I have some more planting to do next week… provided we get a little dry weather.

Anyway.. time to get on with the week and as always my thanks to William Price King,(look out for a special post in thanks to William for all…

It was then over to Bridget for her delicious Irish Soda Bread I was straight down to the kitchen as with only 2 ingredients how could I not make them…I threw in a handful of raisins and they were soon cooked and buttered while hot…think 20%…haha….Bridget then tells me I could add syrup or cheese…Oh yum!

Then it was a trip over to my other blog Orienthailiving and the conclusion of the Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year and the food they eat traditionally Tang Yuan…Beautiful Chinese balls with lots of different filling and sauces…Another Yum! And not only do you get delicious food but look at these little children’s clothes and tell me they are not so cute…

Yesterday I was overjoyed and humbled to have my work and my passion featured on Sally Cronin’s website under her daily post “Smorgasbord Book Promotion – Air Your Reviews.”

Sally graciously shared my book of poetry The Heart’s Lullaby along with a few lovely reviews and links to my social media profiles. I was also delighted to see my work featured alongside fellow authors, Christoph Fischer and Shehanne Moore.
