The heat wave has come upon the Pacific Northwest. 95 degrees is the deal today. On our agenda we are to attend a wedding (which is being held outdoors) then a Beavers Baseball game (yep, the Portland, OR team is really called The Beavers). What a perfect intro to kick off this weeks VGNO! ;->
*The VGNO Blog-Hop began in the summer of 2008. Connecting, supporting, encouraging - those words describe the VGNO Guest. And hopefully we gain more exposure for your blog - that's the intent of the VGNO. So get on your bunny slippers, make yourself a cocktail add your blog link and have fun! Join the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project (details below). Happy VGNO!*
Time For Some Tunes!
Mumford and Sons "Little Lion Man"
(*Disclosure - Bit of the "f" word thrown in)
This band is terrific! Hope the splash of language didn't offend.
Time For A Cocktail!
Summer Fruit Punch
2 cup(s) diced stone fruit (apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines)
2 cup(s) apricot juice
2 cup(s) sparkling wine
1 cup(s) seltzer
Combine diced fruit, apricot juice, sparkling wine, and seltzer. Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses.
A perfect beverage on a hot day. And it uses, what is called, "stone fruits". What a perfect segueway ...
Time For The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project!
Has the rock made it to you yet Brenda "The ChacoGirl" all the way in Paraguay? How exciting! When it reaches Brenda it's on it's way to Carolee "Come On Home" in Pennellville, NY. Then we have Mary, and Martha and Wendy... who's next???
How can you, you lovely blogging person, take part in the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project you ask? Here's what you do:
*E-mail your name & address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The rock will be mailed to you from it's last glamorous visit with a blogger. Once you receive our little heart-shaped gem...
take a picture of it with something that represents you; it could be an object, a place, whatever you like. Then... post the picture on your blog; let your readers know you are participating in The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project. Let me know when you receive our little gem; I'll send you the name & address of the next blogger to mail the little gem to.
On and on it goes! I'll be sharing T.H.S.R.P. pics on my blog as well. At the end of it's journey I'll create a slideshow of your pics.
Hey blog pals, stay cool! Happy VGNO!!!
