The winner of my blog-versary contest etc…

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.~Chinese Proverb

Hello and I hope you are all doing well. Of course I am late posting the winner of my one year blog-versary giveaway. Congrats to Literary Feline ! Thank you all for entering and for your support and friendship.

I hope to have a review or two up this coming week. One for 24-Hour Crochet Projects by Rita Weiss, which I wasn’t too crazy about and one for The Great Gatsby, which I’ve been meaning to post for some time now.

Today I will be catching up on blog hopping and just taking it easy at home for the most part. I actually had somewhat of a scare yesterday when I woke up with a rash on most of my face, neck, arms and back. It was some kind of allergic reaction, which happened to me last year as well. My doctor put me on a course of pills for it and I will be seeing a specialist next week to see if they can find out what it is that is making me react this way. I’m curious! It had better not be chocolate or wine 😛

Thank you all for stopping by and enjoy your weekend. Any weekend plans?

  1. Hi Naida,

    Congratulations to Literary Feline and I love the dramatic Post Header image!

    As you hadn’t been around for a while, I was hoping that all was well with you and had no idea that I was going to stop by only to find you are a bit under the weather.

    I tend to get quite a few random rashes and allergy related outbreaks at this time of year, but generally a few antihistamines do the trick … Could it perhaps be some new plant in the garden you are allergic to?

    I would suggest that you eliminate chololate or wine one at a time, just to see if that does the trick … but that’s a bit extreme don’t you think 🙂

    Seriously, take care and I hope that you manage to get sorted very soon 🙂

    • Hi Yvonne. Thank you, I took that picture a few weeks ago and I just love when the clouds look dramatic like that. You know me, I come and go. I need to get a laptop and maybe then I will be able to get onto blog land more often. As of now I sit at my computer to blog, but I don’t always feel like getting onto the computer when I can be cuddled up in bed reading or watching tv.

      Aren’t the allergies just annoying? Funny you mention the garden, the doctor might even think Otis got into something while he was outside and brought it to me via his fur. Can you imagine that? lol. She is going to do skin testing once the meds are fully out of my system to try and find the cause.

      Thank you for your thoughtful comments as always and enjoy your week 🙂


  2. Thank you so much! How exciting! Now to decide which book to buy. 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway.

    I was sorry to hear about your rash and allergic reaction! That would have scared me too. I hope the medication is helping. Take care of yourself and get lots of rest!
