I’m glad the Chedster is holding me up; I’ve never been much of a skater. ;)

My Holiday Wishes….

Christmas for MPP 2014

 

The words to this beautiful song keep running through my mind lately.

Not actually a Christmas “tune” but the lyrics  seemed perfect for a holiday greeting

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we…

gift ideas 2013

I ♥ handmade and heartfelt gifts, to give and to receive.

Made with ♥, special and one of a kind gifts. Also, giving of our time, in big and small ways. Treasures and memories that will be enjoyed and remembered for years to come.

Gotta ♥ all those reasons and more. ;)

Amazon Book “Breakthrough” on Black Friday :-)

I was over at Amazon.com and Amazon.ca yesterday morning, browsing; along with a gazillion other shoppers and to my surprise and delight, 2 of my books/eBooks were on 3 Top 100 PAID lists! :)

Here’s a screenshot from around 9AM, Black Friday over at  Amazon.com from the:

Top 100 Paid List for Vegetarian Cookbooks:

The Groovy Green Kitchen on Black Friday 2014 at 9 AM

The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker was at #75. 

Not number 1 but heh on a Paid List, especially on Black Friday, I’ll take it. ;)

GGK COVER WITH MY PHOTO-FRONT COVER ONLY

It’s a rare honor/treat to end up on any Top 100 List at Amazon, especially the paid lists considering the millions of books that are available at Amazon. I wasn’t able to see if I moved up any further later in the day as I was out and about with a lot of errands to do, but it sure was a nice way to start the morning. :)

haiku cover from vespers blog

Meanwhile, over at Amazon.ca, Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons Volume 1 was on 2 Top 100 Paid Lists: Love Poems and Haiku and Japanese. 

Considering how many people were online at Amazon.com and .ca shopping yesterday (I’m guessing in the millions!) that made it even more special.

It also gave me a “kick in the pants” to get back working on my two current eBook projects more diligently. ;)

I’ve been rather lazy about getting these projects finished but I’m digging in this week to change that.

One is the second installment in The Groovy Green Kitchen series, the other is a motivational book about a number of topics including the Law of Attraction.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Shopping, Cooking and Reading too! ;)
