There seems to be a technical glitch on WordPress at the moment and some of us are not receiving email notifications for blogs we subscribe to; this may account for my absence from some of my friends’ blogs.  Another reason for my current low-activity on the blogs is the fact that we have school holidays at the moment, so O Bunn either takes over my PC, or we are out and about having fun.  (You may read that as:  She is spending all my money.)

Jingle has announced her monthly blogs awards; I thank her and the friends who nominated me, from the bottom of my heart.  Congratulations to all the other winners.

The Celebrate Blogger of August in Food/Cooking Award:

The Celebrate Blogger of August In Short Stories Runner up award:


And then a little mystery; I mention it here in case the benefactor is a reader.  Last week a gift was delivered at my gate.  Our Alice could offer only that the delivery man drove a white car.  A very sweet gesture, I’m sorry that I am not able to thank the donor in person.


The wine was lovely 🙂

    Nice name for the wine! 😀

    Cin, have you noticed that your time zone on the comments is not RSA? I noticed it a long time ago…

    1. theonlycin says:

      Someone remarked on my posting times and asked if I never sleep! How do I change it, adee?

      1. adeeyoyo says:

        Dashboard/Appearance/Settings – should open up General Settings. Under Timezone change to UTC+2 (which is what mine says, lol!). Should work. Check if there is a Save Settings/Changes at the bottom and click.

      Thank you, Tandy, you too. (Try not to kill your driver!)

  5. Count Czardas says:

    Perhaps the Audacia-ous gift was from a tall, dark and broodingly handsome secret admirer ?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh, chance would be a fine thing, Nickerless …
      I still haven’t forgiven you for your prank yesterday!

      1. Count Czardas says:

        I will make it up to you this very afternoon.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks my angel, you just keep your head down and do what you have to do, missing you tons too. xxx

  7. Jamie Dedes says:

    Congratulations, Cindy, and enjoy all three! 🙂

    [Child] spending all my money! – I know about that! Forty years later, the rolles are sometimes reversed. 🙂

    Happy Wednesday … I think it’s Wednesday there.

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s 1.30 Wednesday and I am having lunch at my desk 🙂

    Congrats on your well-deserved awards, Cindy!! How cool to receive a rogue bottle of great wine 😀

    Are you aware of WordPress’ alternative subscriptions feature, where you can have them listed on your top toolbar under ‘My Subscriptions’ instead of via email? Not sure if the glitch affects that too?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, Nancy told me about the feature, thanks Naomi.

    2. nrhatch says:

      Naomi ~ The glitch seems limited to e-mails. I used the subscription link to discover the 6-7 posts I’d missed.

      Cin ~ I wonder how your secret admirer knew to drop off wine???

      1. theonlycin says:

        My address is directory listed 🙂
        (Perhaps something I should reconsider, given the less-generous types lurking out there?)

  9. suzicate says:

    I’d love to have a bottle of wine delivered to my door…how cool is that!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Very cool, got me all aflutter 🙂

  10. slpmartin says:

    You’re having fun…I’m stuck doing jury duty…not fair.;-)

    1. theonlycin says:

      Sounds interesting, Charles, hopefully you’re getting some inspiration for future poems?

  11. gospelwriter says:

    Congratulations on the awards, and what a delightful mystery: a bottle of wine delivered anonymously to the door. Who could it have been?

    I’ve noticed that about email notifications too – the funny thing is, I get some while I don’t get others…

    1. theonlycin says:

      I also still get some, I do hope they fix the glitch soon 😦

  12. Have fabulous holidays with Bunn! And congratulations on the awards. And the secret literary admirer:-)

    1. theonlycin says:

      They go back to school next week, so we’re packing as much fun every day as we can 🙂

  13. izziedarling says:

    Go Cin! So happy for you! 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank you izzie 🙂

  14. Tokeloshe says:
