The winner of my blog-versary contest etc…

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?
