Sunday Morning Updates

Well I don’t know about you, but this morning I’m getting prepared to hunker down and ride out miss Hurricane Sandy which will be hitting us sometime tomorrow (probably afternoon).  We are supposed to get some pretty bad wind here.  Friday and Saturday did all the preparations – hardest part is figuring out what food to have on hand if the power goes out, since we can’t have a grill and we have electric everything, ugh.  Today I’m meeting up with a friend for a quick lunch and some shopping before it is back home to wait it out.  I’m not expecting to go to work tomorrow – they are predicting at least 70% of Connecticut to be without power, so we will see.  If I’m not around this week, you will know why!  If any of you are also in the path of the storm I hope you are all prepared and stay safe!

In book news, I do have a couple of winners to announce from 2 giveaways:

The winner of the Sacred Treason giveaway is…Carolyn!!!

The winner of the Apple and Pumpkin Old Fashioned Cookbooks is…Beth Fish!!!

Congrats to you both.  I have sent emails to the winners for mailing info and if I don’t receive it within 5 days new winners will be selected.  Thanks to everyone that entered – I will have 2 more giveaways coming up this week so stay tuned!

Coming up this week I have two blog tour stops.  Tomorrow is the Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow review and giveaway

Days of Splendor Tour Button

and Friday is the stop for The Lincoln Conspiracy review and giveaway. 

The Lincoln Conspiracy Tour Button

I need to get finished reading the Lincoln book, I’m over halfway there, and if I’m home tomorrow…

Hope to see you all this week!  Have a great (and safe) rest of your weekend!

  1. Heather, I hope you remain safe and suffer no damage or hardships. I can certainly relate (living through Katrina and just recently had to put my house back together after Hurricane Isaac in August.) I have to say I am completely tired of hurricanes!!! Stay safe!

  2. We are kind of preparing too, but being in the city we don't sweat it too much. Whatever happens, happens, and we don't have a lot of trees. Concrete jungle in my immediate area.
    Cheese sticks can last two days without refrigeration, per my dietitian, and make for a good snack.
    Hope you and your boyfriend are safe and sound this week :)
