End of Summer Housekeeping Day!

Marianne has issued this invitation on her blog and has extended it to all readers here, too. I thought it sounded like a fun way to begin autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. I will be making a post here. Would you like to join in?

The plan is simple: decide what you would like to picture on your blog for the picnic on September 22.
Use your imagination - It can be anything you would like to prepare, bring or do at your picnic.
You may want to take a picture of picnic places, picnic things you have, the wonderful foods you will prepare, birds that might visit us, something you might wear, a pet you would like to bring with you, flowers, games to play, books to read, poems to share, anything at all. Anything.

Take a picture that expresses your Indian Summer Picnic. Post it along with whatever you would like to say about your contribution on your post. This is an all day event that transcends time zones.

And Thank You Marianne for this lovely Award! The rules are similar to most awards:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2.Link to the person who gave you the award.
3.Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4.Put links to those on your blog.
5. Leave a message on those blogs.

I offer this Award to all the blogs listed on my blog list on the right hand side of this page. You are all amazing people and wonderful friends.

And Suki has shared this award on her blog. Isn't that sweet?

These are the rules which go with this particular award:

1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls or boys you've nominated.

Like Suki, I also wish to offer this award to everyone listed on my blog list. You all deserve these awards for the most amazing blogs I know.

So these are a few things which have been collecting lately and I wanted to share them with you...lots of fun and lots of positiveness! I am focused on positive things these days and my blog friends help keep me focused on my goal.

Thank You All and Have a Beautiful Day!

And isn't that a wonderfilled invitation!

Oh Good! I hope you will be able to make it, but we understand if you cannot. At least I hope you are able to have a lot of fun if you are not in town! :)

It is a great invite, isn't it? I completely agree!

Enjoy the awards, Babs!

Thank you for the lovely awards, Kim. And congratulations on receiving them. You are most deserving, lady!

The Indian summer picnic sounds like fun. I'll have to mull over...what to prepare, how to display it, what to write about it. Thank you for letting us know about Marianne's clever idea.

Hi Kim. Great post with all these wonderful awards and the fun picnic which Soubrush also has on her blog. Not sure where this originated. I will try to post something too but that'll be the day after my return and i may be disorganized. I'll see. Have fun at the picnic.

Andrea and Kim said...

San, I am glad you like the awards and thanks!

And as Suki says, Soulbrush also has this picnic on her blog...I think that is where Marianne received the invite, too.

I am looking very forward to what you might bring to the picnic! And what you will write about, too!


Andrea and Kim said...

Suki, I think Marianne said this invite came from Soulbrush to her, too.

I understand you will have a lot on your plate when you return! You could bring us the sea :) Most of all, we want you to have a fantastic time, enjoy the trip and be safe! That would be the best thing you could bring to the picnic!

Thanks Dear Suki!

So many wonderful awards and you very much deserve them Kim! Oooh a picnic is a wonderful idea, thank you Marianne. I just got a picture of the homemade chocolate chip cookies I made to bring to the picnic.

Andrea and Kim said...

Thank you, Lynette! I hope you are picking these up for yourself, too!

Oh Boy! Chocolate Chip Cookies...perfect picnic food! Yummy! I am really looking forward to this picnic on Monday, aren't you?
