Lots has been going on in our world – and on the blog – in the past week or so. I thought I’d take a moment to give you a re-cap (in case you missed anything) and share some other new and exciting things.
External Writing Projects
Remember when I told you I was a featured author on the website Guyvorce.com? Well, I’m excited to announce that I had another article publish this week. Check it out and lemme know what you think! What Parents Need to Know About Cyber Bullying. If you missed the first article to publish there, here it is again: Mental Health Awareness For Your Kids.
Want in on a little secret? I have a couple more articles in the cue for Guyvorce over the next month or so. Stay tuned!
On This Beautiful Day
It’s also been my great pleasure to be a featured author on a newly launched family-oriented website, On This Beautiful Day.
A little slow getting the announcement out (so, technically, it doesn’t fall in this weeks’ review, but we’re gonna roll with it), but my article was published on August 2nd. It’s on a very touchy and sensitive topic. 13 Thoughts on 13 Reasons Why. Give it a read and share your thoughts — either here or over on OTBD.
Simply Writeous Blog Posts
Things are really ramping up around here with the garden and need to preserve the harvest. I hope you find yourselves in that same situation (if you have a garden, of course).
This past week I shared two articles that will help you get those goodies in order for winter-time enjoyment:
It’s All About The Pickle Brine. A Tried & True Recipe
Canning Green Beans Instructions: Start to Finish
In The Garden & At Home
Last weekend I spent time in Nebraska catching up with family.
The trip was an excellent break from the typical pandemonium, but also means my garden was neglected. I haven’t the slightest clue how many buckets of beans I will harvest this weekend, or how many tomatoes ripened while I was away. I can tell you that I picked a cabbage the size (and probably weight) of my head–maybe bigger! I can also tell you that I have my work cut out for me this weekend just trying to bring some order back to that whole area of my life. Harvesting, canning, weeding….oh my!
Have I mentioned that it’s rained nearly every day here for the last 3-4 weeks? Well, it has. The plants – and weeds – are loving it! The weather as also been cooler. It feels like Fall.
On The Horizon
The wheels are beginning to turn with ideas for fall/winter gardening projects.
One of these days I will have my act together once again and be back in the kitchen working through meal planning and prep.
I’m still chipping away at rounding up gigs and writing articles in the freelance writing world. If you know of anyone who needs to enlist some help with content for their online presence, send ’em my way (Contact).
What do you intend to fall in to this weekend? Anything fabulous from last week to share? I’d love to know what y’all are up to! Post a message in the comments section below!
