Where did the summer go? Yesterday, driving home, I saw a sign reminding us that school starts September 6, barely a week and a half away. And suddenly, the calendar is full of things to do, places to go. The blogging calendar is, too.
So: here's what's coming up next, this month (what's left of it) or in the first weeks of September:
- Skywatch will be back online at 2:30 this afternoon. It had been on hiatus since the sad death of its owner, Klaus Peter. Thank you, Sandy, Sylvia and Wren for picking up the thread!
- August 27th, the day after tomorrow, a few Pacific Northwest bloggers are participating in a scavenger hunt. On their blogs, so you don't have to travel. Pat Lichen is hosting it on her blog, here.
Here's the plan: this Saturday, Aug 27 at 9:00 AM, I'll post a series of questions along with a list of PNW bloggers. Your challenge will be to visit the blogs and, using the posts found there, answer each of the scavenger hunt questions correctly. Then you'll send your responses to me at firstname.lastname@example.org winner of a random drawing of correct actions will receive (what else?) a free, autographed copy of my novel Kidnapping the Lorax.
- As planned, the International Rock Flipping Day will be held here on September 11. I'll add more details for the new flippers in a future post. Meanwhile, start picking out your rock! Here's last year's fun, for inspiration: Mongoose Poop?
What very important blog date have I forgotten? I know there's something; there always is.
A Skywatch post.
