Some News

shf_tropical_lg


First, some bad news. I hurt my back over the weekend so I have to take it easy. I must limit how much time I spend on the computer, which will be difficult since I sit in front of a computer all day at work. Since I can't take time off from work, taking it easy really means cutting back on my internet surfing and blogging. I wish that taking it easy meant laying on a beach while sipping a fruity drink from a coconut shell.

But the good news is that I am extending the deadline for "Sugar High Friday 33: Tropical Paradise" submissions to Monday July 30th and I will post the round-up on Friday August 3rd.

Here are the details if you'd like to participate in this round of Sugar High Friday.

Whether you live in a tropical locale, are relaxed and tan from a recent tropical vacation, or just daydreaming of one, create something sweet and write about why it says "tropical" to you. Please post your Tropical Paradise creation on your blog by Monday July 30th.

And then email your submission to me at alpineberryshf [AT] yahoo {D0T} com

Please include the following information:
1. Your name and location
2. The name of your blog
3. The permalink to your post
4. 100x100 pixel image of your creation (photo is optional)

I want to thank everyone who has submitted an entry so far and I apologize that the round-up will be delayed.

Mary, what is it about this week, women named Mary and hurting their backs!!??

As I type this, I am sitting in my chair with the heating pad attached and on for exactly the same reason.

I hope you feel better soon and are back to rights quickly.

So sorry about your back, Mary. I hope you can rest and recover quickly.

Lis said...

acckkk! I'm so sorry to hear this, Mary! I hope your back heals quickly. I know from experience that a back injury is the worst - especially for those of us who are behind computer monitors for most of the day (and night).

Thinking about you!

I hope your back feels better soon! Back injuries are such a pain (literally) because you use those muscles in nearly everything you do. Here's to lots of rest and a quick recovery. *hugs*

Tag, you're it!

Here's how it works: Players list 8 facts/habits about themselves. At the end of the post, players then tag 8 people by posting their names and making sure they know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at the tagee’s blog.

Hope you feel better soon! I'm looking forward to seeing all the tropical goodies.

Sorry to hear that Mary, hope you feel better soon. (it does give me extra time though to think up something for SHF - I've been so busy this month the deadline kind of slipped by unnoticed)
