See, Read, Do, Make, Eat & Write

I am taking next week off from blogging to focus on some other things I need to do. However, I've left a little something for each day of the week if you are looking for something to read, see, make or do (yes I know, like you don't have enough to do already!).

1.You might like to READ an interview I did with Rowe at SocieteAmore about my views on blogging.

2. Or perhaps SEE my new internet soap opera called Search and You Will Find. This tongue in cheek soap opera (a work in progress) is based on all the search terms that people use to end up on my blog. If you aren't using Google Analytics DO. It's highly amusing.

3. Maybe EAT cake! And not any kind of cake, but Classic Coffee Walnut cake. MAKE this one. It's so easy and tastes so good.

4. FIND your creativity. JOIN everyone at Remembering Paris to PAINT up a storm for the Inch by Inch Art Project.

5. WRITE a story in 100 words. JOIN in The Raisin Chronicles fantastic Fiction Friday writing contests.

6. WATCH and LAUGH as Ellen DeGeneres gives the commencement day address at Tullane University.

7. DESIGN your own blogger header, mosaics, posters etc using Big Huge Labs.

And finally, this one is the extra icing on the cake - VISIT Fleur de Aleta and be inspired by Aleta's moving and precious stories about her inspirational Mother.


I will visit you all over the weekend and be back in a week! Have fun!!

  8. I love you Lilly. Enjoy your break!

    I have to tell you, I love Ellen's speech. Tulane is where Bronson is going and it jumped up a notch in my book after watching that.

  9. I think my eyes just about popped out of my head! You mentioned my blogs about Mom. Awww... Lilly ~ that was touching. Thank you!

    (By the way, if you get a moment, Greg was the guest blogger... he said it was getting too serious with the last 4 blog posts about Mom and I suggested he guest blog. He's a character!)

    Did you know that Ellen DeGeneres is from New Orleans - I'm all for number 6.

    Hmmm.. # 7 sounds fun too.

    Will miss your blogging, come back soon!

  19. Enjoy your week off. I'll try a few of your suggestions. I already did a fiction Friday post, but I do believe it's more than a hundred words, LOL. Not sure I can write in 100 words. I also created a new blogger header, as a matter of fact I created a new blog. I'm not that good at making a cake, so I'll leave that to some other adventurous souls. I read your suggestions, and let you know what I think. Not much into soap operas, so I think I'll pass on that.

    Most important though, really enjoy your week off!
