Yes, more fireworks. How did you guess?
Giveaway #3 is a paperback copy of Zadie Smith's "On Beauty." It has been read (by me). There is a slight crease in the front cover (by me).
If you win, let me know what you think. I was a bit meh on it.
The rules, once again: Leave a comment and it will count as a vote. One comment per person. If you link back to this post, you get three entries total. Winner will be drawn at random on Sat, July 14.
We have a new addition to the family as of Sunday, a 9 lb baby boy named Skyller (kids, these days!). He is my darling niece's second son.
Please send along your thoughts and prayers, because he is starting out his life with a big challenge - his heart valves are crossed up and he needs surgery today to correct that. The doctors seem calm and confident - apparently this surgery is common enough that they expect him to be just fine.
But still! Heart surgery on a tiny lad. It does make an auntie tug at her hair a bit.
Thanks for all your birthday wishes and contest entries. Also for the lovely people who have nominated me to be a rockin' girl blogger or a thinking blogger. I'm sorry but I have not been too meme-alicious lately, but I do love you for thinking of me.
