Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – May 2nd -8th 2021 -Jose Feliciano, Allergies, Magic Gardens, Book Reviews, Book Excerpts and Funnies

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

Time flies when you are having fun so they say, and I do think that applies. I certainly have no idea where this last week went, but here we are again with the round up.

I have had a good week in other aspects to as I am finally on the vaccination list with hopefully my first jab in the next three weeks. Being a similar age as each other means David and I are eligible at the same time. We have decided however that he will book his after I have had my first just in case one of us reacts which hopefully will not be the case. We hope to get away in September and at the rate of 2nds jabs we might just make it by the end of that month. We have moved a ferry booking three times so far and it would be nice to use it at some point.

The Tales from the Irish Garden finishes tomorrow with a formal palace announcement which should clear up the mystery about the Queen’s malaise…

I asked if there was a preference for the next book and since it was split between the original Tales from the Spanish Garden.. and What’s in a Name? I am sharing one book on Saturdays and the other on Sundays from next week. Meanwhile I am creating new stories for the Irish Garden to be released later in the year.

I am also putting together a poetry collection and working on another health book..so that should keep me out of mischief.

There will be some new series coming up on the Book Promotion front in the next couple of months including Share an Excerpt from your current book and Meet the authors where I will feature every author in the Cafe at the time.  I will do promotional posts for those in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled..

Coming this week…

D.G. Kaye, Debby Gies is back with us on Monday 10th with her brand new Realm of Relationships. As you all know Debby lost her husband a month ago and this heartfelt post is very appropriate, as loss of a loved one in a relationship is devastating. Understanding the dynamics of the stages of grief can bring some comfort.

I have been out and about this week as a guest of author and poet Robbie Cheadle who posed some interesting questions.. we would love you to head over. Sally and Robbie.. Blogging, books and the future 

On with the posts from the week and as always many thanks to William Price King for co-presenting The Breakfast Show and this week special guest Malcolm Allen for sharing his funnies from Australia.

Thank you as well to you for dropping in, commenting and sharing the posts on social media.. it makes a huge difference and keeps me motivated.

  1. Hi Sally, I am glad you are going to get your jabs. I just hope they work as we all expect. This double mutant in India is very scary. The entire All Author team is sick with Covid. I will be booking Michael and mine next week as registration opens for people with comorbidities. Thanks again for being a great guest this week.

  2. Another tremendous week, Sally. Wonderful writers, plenty of chuckles, and health nuggets to top it off. 💗 Your posts are a favorite of mine. If I miss one or two of them, just know that I’m in the midst of moving across the country. Things are crazy for me. Hubby can’t help much because of his back. No matter what, I’m cheering on the sidelines! 😊

  3. Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel! We go for our first shots next week, as well. I’m nervous of the side effects, but not as scared as I am of Covid, so I’ll grit my teeth and hope for the best 🙂
    Hope you and David sail through and then you can sail away, lol

  4. Another great week, Sally! My husband and I staggered our shot days for the same reason. It worked out good:) I love all the upcoming projects you have.

  5. Much luck with the vaccinations, Sally. We are fully vaccinated and are on our first real trip since Covid. We met our son’s girlfriend, and we’re having a great time. Thanks for another incredible week. I’m a little more off the grid than normal.

  7. I’ve gotten my first dose of the Moderna vaccine and it hit me hard (I was just exhuasted for a day), but it’s certainly worth it.

    I’m actually looking forward to my next dose in August.

    I’m sure you’ll be fine, Sally.
