Gone Fishing...


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting




... well not quite yet and not quite fishing. But as of tomorrow I'll be taking a short vacation. I am so looking forward to this as we all (my little family) need the break. We are planning on enjoying every single day on the beach, in the sea, going on long bike rides, picnicking and just getting as much of each other as possible. Which during the usual routine of the week falls short.

What you see above is my entry to this month's Monthly Mingle. As I won't be around next week thought I'd show you all that I did actually make my ice-cream creation for the event. The recipe however, will be shared when I return.



If you want to take part then send me your entries by July 4th. You can read all about the details here.
I won't be taking my notebook nor do I plan to check mails - as a matter of fact both Tom and I have promised each other to leave all this behind. Even the photos I take will be first reviewed when I get back. So, I won't be able to answer your mails. But when I return I hope to see some of the most gorgeous ice-creams ever. I can tell you the entries I've already got are incredible!

In the meantime you are all welcome to take a guess at what fruit I used in this ice-cream. Those are the lovely orange-yellow bits you see. No you do not win anything for that.

But you will, if you can guess where I am going to on vacation. That's right take a look at the satellite shot below and give your guesses in the comments section of this post. The first one to leave the correct answer can choose their very own favorite picture taken by me. Pick out any photo you particularly like on my blog here or on my Flickr Phototstream and I will send you a small/medium sized poster (depending on the crop of the photo) of the original picture (without the frames, titles and copyright). You are welcome to leave multiple answers, but I'll pick the first one from the list ;-)!

You do not have to give the exact name of the city/town, but I would like the region/area and the country. So, say if you think I am going to Italy then I need the area or region - Tuscany, Italy. Of course, if you are sure then you are welcome to leave the name of the city/town too - Florence, Tuscany, Italy. Got it?

There are a few close blogger buddies I have already told where I am headed. You lot should not leave a comment - you can of course help me and mislead the rest of the folks LOL!

I am quite happy that the last time I did this the gorgeous Pille won. She already chose her fave picture and I will be sending it out to her as soon as I get back.

If you still need things to keep you busy in my absence I'd like to direct you to the brilliant The Daily Tiffin. I say brilliant because if you have not been regularly reading the blog you might have missed a few fantastic articles written by the DT team, some of the lovely ladies you might just recognize from their own awesome blogs. A few recent posts you might enjoy:I wish those who celebrate it - Happy July 4th. To all of you I'm missing you all already!

Hugs!

  2. Enjoy the holiday, Meeta. And I won't even be guessing where you're off to, as it'd be unfair for me to win twice in a row. Wouldn't it? :)

  7. Have a wonderful holiday. Incase the Italy suggestion was a red herring, I'm going to go for a random guess - Croatia...

  8. No it's not Prerow. It's Denmark - Falster!

  16. I'm geographically challenged, so will leave that to the other commenters.

    On the other hand, I'll take a wager at the ice cream. It is shrieking something citrusy at me, and my first thought was orange. After a few minutes, though, I'm thinking perhaps it's mango?

    Have a wonderful holiday!
