Announcement: To Be Continued!

**Please note: this was back in 2009!**


Hi, Robins!

We've just about reached the time of year when everyone is extra busy with holiday shopping, baking, parties, family reunions, etc. Participation in memes naturally drops off between Halloween and New Year's, displaced by "real life" - whatever that is!


Rather than fight this very reasonable trend, Carly and I are taking a short break. The Round Robin Photo Challenges is going on hiatus for the second time ever, giving us - and you - a chance to rest and recharge, and catch up with the rest of our lives. Let's start fresh with our next Challenge date in the new year, on Saturday, January 2nd, 2010. Just so we're not completely leaving you in the lurch, we'll announce the next topic on Thanksgiving Weekend. Be sure to stop back then for our next inspiring (we hope) theme, and to RSVP.

And thanks, as always, for your support and participation in the Round Robin Photo Challenges. Carly, Steven and I couldn't do it without you!

In the meantime, don't forget our other memes:

The Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot - hosted by Carly, has a new topic every Monday!

The Weekend Assignment - hosted by Karen, is a weekly writing prompt, with a new topic each weekend.

Happy holidays, and we'll see you soon!

Karen

You start your festivity program quite early, lol ! I don't even think about that yet. Besides Christmas which is quite far away, we don't celebrate anything in between. I will have a break in Egypt for 2 weeks. I wish you a nice break too without too much work !! "see" you next year !

Of course you deserve a break, but somehow this makes me sad..EVEN though I don't participate as much as I used to! Oh well...
Maybe I'll join in on the Mon. one more often.

Hugs,
Nancy

Oh this is sad! Just as things start to slow down a wee bit for me, they pick up for everyone else. You all deserve the break, trust me I understand!
