Sundays In My City & GIVEAWAY!

Don't Forget: Leave a comment on THIS POST and any NEW POSTS between now and AUGUST 16th to automatically be entered in The Fifty Factor Time & Money GIVEAWAY! For full Contest details click here or on the picture of the cake in the above right corner.


For months now Unknown Mami has brought us Sundays In My City, starting today she would like to travel to Sundays In Your City, but she can't do it without us-- So I'm joining in!



I'm on vacation in my homeotwn in Northeast Ohio. This is a photo of the Grand River. We took godson and my nieces and nephews "river walking" to hunt for frogs! They had a blast. I avoided the frogs (ick!) and enjoyed the scenery.


Would you like to participate?

The idea is that you enjoy your city (or suburb) with your friends and family, take pictures, and then share them with your bloggy friends and family.

If your "Sunday" happens on a Friday, that's fine, just post the pictures on Sunday. If you live in a suburb instead of a city, she doesn't care-- Unknown Mami still wants to see your pictures! If it's raining and your stuck inside, take a picture of the view outside your home.You can even cheat and take pictures one Sunday and post them the next Sunday. It's just about showing off the "view of your city" on a SUNDAY.

So start taking pictures. Get out there and enjoy your city, then come back link up at
Unknown Mami on SUNDAY and let others enjoy vicariously through your pictures.

If you'd like
to participate, grab the Sundays in My City button HERE for your post and link up to her blog.



How's your Sunday?

That sounds like a great idea - I look forward to posting some pictures of Auckland when I get back home. And I always enjoy seeing other places so I will check out that blog. Thanks!

Today is Sunday 5.35pm. It had been a laze in bed day. I'm going out next Sunday and look forward to show-off Kuala Lumpur on a Sunday morning :)

Thank you Joanna.

Mari said...

How nice to see a photo from your home town. I think there must be a lot of Grand Rivers in the country. I've seen several posted and the river that is about 3 miles from us is also the Grand River!

My name is PJ. said...

This is yet another part of the glory of blogland - the cultural exchange. I love reading about and seeing photos of other people's hometowns. Hey Joanna, is there anything more I can do for extra credit??? ;)

Lilly said...

Sassy Pants Freckle Face said...

Hummm, I would love to, however I am not a fan of my city, the people kinda make me scream "WTF" in my head???? Umm and I hate the park because those same people breed and and unleash their children upon the world,.... I do however have the most amazing children in the freakin world,... hummm so then maybe, right?

LadyFi said...

This is a very positive way of looking at your city/burb. Plus I am new to my area and this will let me see it from a new angle. Good idea.

My Sunday is awesome actually. It is raining all day. Lightening. Thunder that shakes the windows. We cooked a roast, I cut hubby's hair, we watched a movie, read books, talked, and blogged. See, great day!

a corgi said...

what a beautiful place to spend the day with your godson/nieces!! I could do without the frogs too, but I'm sure they had a FANTASTIC time!

enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

Yaya said...

I'm going to Ohio in 2 weeks to visit family!

Oz Girl said...

The Grand River... I remember there was a seafood restaurant on the Grand River that we would ride the motorcycles to -- it was always such fun! I can't think of the name of it...

Hopefully, I am returning to OH for a family visit, maybe mid-September. Depends on this temporary job that I am working right now.

Ribbon said...

Do you have snakes? I see long grass and the Aussie in me thinks Snakes!

sunday started at church then led to the pool where i was kissed by the syn and coaxed my sons under the water..not quite ready for the diving board though...sounds like you are having quite the trip.

Gran said...

It's now 6:44 p.m. in Seattle. I'm roasting a whole chicken and small new potatoes in my studio kitchen. I had groceries delivered this morning, then spent the afternoon with my grandchildren.

I'm getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.

For now, I'm going to pass on the Sundays in My City option.

Have a wonderful time!

I hope you will come to Crock Pot Wednesdays at diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com this week. Mr. Linky is up and waiting for your entry

diane said...

Hey Joanna, did I ever tell you that I used to visit my Aunt Betty on her farm in Ohio when I was a kid? I used to love that, and since you reminded me, maybe I'll write a little post about it sometime. Hugs. xo d

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh, your town is so pretty! And my favorite thing about your picture is the sky! Haven't you just been amazed at the bright, blue skies we have had this summer. So pretty : ) I love them and I could look at them all day : )

My name is PJ. said...

Ordinarily, I wouldn't do this - leave second comments in a single blog post- but, it is my sworn duty, during this contest cycle to leave a comment each and every day. How am I doing so far?? ;)

Mary said...

Such a pretty picture, sounds likes your river walk was alot of fun. I like to see what people enjoy about where they live. I hope to remember to join in this next Sunday.
Enjoy the rest of your "home vacation"! Mary

Helen McGinn said...

The picture reminds me of scenes from Bridges of Madison County...same general direction, right? Stopping by from Sundays in Your City. xx

Willoughby said...

What a great idea! I'm having some technical issues right now and uploading pics is a pain, but I may still participate because it sounds like fun!

I hope you're having a great time in Ohio!

Flartus said...

Ah, there is no place more beautiful than northeastern Ohio on a quiet summer's day...I can almost hear the quiet trill of crickets when I look at your picture.

This Sunday in My Town sounds like a really fun idea. I might try it out...

Aleta said...

What a neat idea! I play "tourist" in my city all the time. I love New Orleans and constantly snap shots when I can.

Lovely picture of your home town!

lisleman said...

was the river walking along the edge in or out of the river? maybe both?
I posted some pics of my hometown. Thanks for finding this blog idea.

Margo said...
