Blogging from A to Z April Challenge - C #atozchallenge

We're up to Day 3 of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I'm having fun, so I hope you are too.

Circumlittoral - around or near the shore. Littoral actually means a shore, especially a seashore, and circum means around. Makes sense.

Cooking oils - Did you know you can use vegetable oil mixed with coarse sale to make a paste that will remove cooked-on debris from cast iron pans? Cooking oils can also be used to clean other surfaces. Check out this Real Simple article about it at

Carole Shmurak - I met Carole Shmurak at a writers conference a few years ago. She is the author of the Susan Lombardi Mysteries. I purchased a copy of Deadmistress that day. Book blurb: The headmistress of an exclusive private school for girls has been found murdered in her office. When professor Susan Lombardi learns that her friend John is the prime suspect, she sets out to clear his name, but her research uncovers some troubling secrets about the school’s faculty and students. And soon it becomes clear that John is not the only one with a motive for murder. Deadmistress was named a Notable Book of 2004 by Writers Notes Magazine.

What are you blogging about today? Are you finding it hard to stick to the challenge?

  3. Hi Cheryl, i never knew cooking oils can be so handy. I always thought them of sticky and messy.

    Challenge is going so far so good. I will try to complete it, let's see.

  4. Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    Melanie, I would love to live by the shore, too. Ava, it's definitely challenging to keep up with comments. Just do what you can. Glad I could help, Cecilia.
