Here we are in October. It feels like it was just August and now the days are going to tumble into one long stream of holidays, events, concerts, shopping, cooking, parties until we tap ourselves out on New Year’s Day. It’s all going to happen far too quickly. So let’s all make sure we plan a few little moments here and there to slow down and grab a cup of tea and a book or sit down and watch some leaves fall before we go head long into the next mad rush.
Mushrooms, Go PINK & Twitter
We are hosting a Twitter party this coming Wednesday (Oct 3) with Mushrooms Canada in support of Mushrooms Go PINK campaign to support the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. RSVP and you have a chance to win some great prizes . And as an added bonus, create a new or share an old mushrooms recipe on your blog and share it during the party for more chances to win some cool stuff.

More Events From Blurb – TORONTO
Toronto is the last stop on Blurb’s cross Canada roadtrip. After hitting up Vancouver and Calgary in the last few weeks, and stopping in Montreal tonight, they’re en route to Toronto. Join them Monday, Oct 22 from 6-9pm at Joe Badali’s for a great opportunity to come meet fellow bloggers and others who’ve been using Blurb and get a little inspired with what you can do with your recipes and photos with Blurb books.
