Summer havest, a movie and the "Great Blogiversary Giveaway"

The summer fruit is really flowing into the stores lately. We really enjoy fresh cherries and so picked up a couple of pounds yesterday - don't they look super!!!

There were also some really delicious apriocots!!

The movie I saw while exchange stitching last night was "Tortilla Soup" - 2001 - a really fun movie about a Latino family headed by widowed Martin Naranjo played by Hector Elizondo ( an actor I really enjoy watching) and his three daughters.
From the user comments on IMBD - Caroline says - " 'Tortilla Soup' was a "scrumptious" delight. The acting was wonderful, especially by the lovable Hector Elizondo. Although the plotline was not unique, it was an endearing, entertaining, well-done film. I believe that anyone who did not like it missed the point. Give yourself a treat - rent it - and enjoy!!! Also, as a bonus, the food in it looks divine." I thoroughly agree!!


To celebrate a year of Blogging I want to do a giant giveaway!!! What I want to do for you my wonderful readers who read my babblings - is a stitchy/San Franciscan giveaway - All you have to do is leave a comment saying you want to get the "Blogiversary SGP." You will have to leave the comment sometime between now Friday, 6/6 and Monday, 6/9 in the morning when I will post again - usually around 7:00 AM PST. That means anybody out there- just leave a note in the comment section!! I will then take all the of comments left there and have Rico draw one comment for the Super Grand Prize from the Bowl of Destiny (remember that) on Monday night and announce the winner on Tuesday. I will get the SGP into the mail by the end of June. Don't be shy if you are lurking out there or if you live outside of the US - this is an International Giveaway!!!! But you have to comment to win!!!!!

I still can't believe that I have been blogging a year - who would have thunk it!!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Take care - and remember to leave a comment to win!!!!!

Happy Blogaversary. I love visiting.

I'd love to join your giveaway

Anna van Schurman said...

The blog+anniversary word--I hesitate to spell it because there are three different spellings in the comments alone--certainly confounds us! I always come here wondering what fabulous spellings you will offer us, Edgar. Blogaveresary exceeded even my hopes. (Though Blogaversiary runs a close second.) And you take me with great good humor. Enter my name in the Bowl of Destiny!

staci said...

Happy Blogiversary! Count me in for your big blog SGP!!!

Your fruits look yummy!!! Apricots and cherries, 2 of my very favorites!

Diane said...

Tortila Soup is such a great movie. I watched it a few years ago, I may just have to did it out of the archives and watch it again.

I've only just discovered your blog, but I feel like you are a kindred spirit and a soul with whom I find love and joy in. Your needlework is inspiring, and your perspective on things refreshing!

Keep on posting! : )

Thanks, Edgar!

Joni said...

Well, Edgar, I've just recently found your blog via Quaker Inspired and have been enjoying it immensely. I enjoy your movies reviews as much as your stitching. I feel a tad bit guilty entering the Great Blogiversary Giveaway since this is my first comment BUT I will live with the guilt! So please put my name into the Bowl of Destiny because I want to win the SGP. (Note to Rico... Please pull my name out of the aforementioned Bowl of Destiny!)

Cathy B said...

Congratulations on your Blogaversary Edgar! Time flies when you're having fun, right? I'd love to be included in your drawing.

Those cherries look scrumptious. I've seen some in the stores here too, but they don't look quite as good as yours!

Cindy said...

Happy blogiversary, but only a year? At least that gives me hope that I can catch up on all the wonderful postings I've missed. I love seeing your work and reading about the movies you're watching. Please add my name to the great Bowl of Destiny for the Blogiversary SGP!

Ja'niece said...

Yay! Happy Blogaversary Edgar! I doubt I'll win but I'd like to say - WOW I can't believe how popular you are.

Good luck everyone!!!!!

Heidi said...

I just recently found your blog, Edgar and have to say that I am enchanted by it! I have really enjoyed reading your posts and until today, did not have a google account to be able to leave a post. But, I fixed that - who wouldn't with the opportunity to be put in and pulled out of the Bowl of Destiny! Anyway, thanks for a wonderfully, inspiring blog!

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary - I'll be reading for the next year(s)!

Peace,
