The Sunday Salon: Out of Hibernation, Award

The Sunday Welcome to the Sunday Salon!

This past week, I  reviewed The Brick Layer, a thriller by Noah Boyd, and posted a book giveaway of two copies, courtesy of Wiredset; posted a tricolor daylily for Wordless Wednesday, and commented on Nobel Prize authors, Orhan Pamuk and Yasunari Kawabata.

Not much for the week, but as of March 1 my days became busier and I am limited to a few posts and fewer books that I'll have time to read. Isn't it ironic. I had to wait for spring in order to emerge from  "hibernation"  and get out and about. But I'll miss the every-day postings that I did while I was snowbound in February.

I have to thank tenor Andrea Bocelli for keeping me company with the  songs on his Opera Album ~ Aria CD, with music from Rigoletto, Carmen, La Boheme, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, and more. A big thank you, Andrea. You can sing for me any time, even when it's not snowing!

To top it off, Mysteries and My Musings awarded me the Prolific Blogger Award. This is the first time I've gotten this award and I truly value it. It came at just the right time. Thanks so much, A.F. Heart! Please visit her blog to find out more. I will try to pass on this wonderful award soon.

What have you done this past week?

Congratulations on your award! You so deserve it for the wonderful blog you write!

So glad that you were able to "emerge" this week! Thank you for sharing the Andrea Bocelli CD. I love him and tend to listen to him quite a bit, but was unfamiliar with his Aria CD. Will have to check that out NOW! :)

Have wonderful week! Hope you can fit in a little reading!

It's been a busy week here, and I've got to go into work for the afternoon.

March has been very busy for me too. I've been a little bit frustrated with myself because I have so much I want to post about and not enough time. I guess it's time I realize I'm not superwoman (darn).

Oh don't worry about being busy, it happens to all of us. In my case I always want to write more posts but I always find myself with less and less time.
