Good Reads

I've been meaning to share a few great posts that have been helpful or inspiring to me lately. Check these out:

Sandy wrote about slowing down yesterday. We could all take her lead, I think.

Bloggers, this one from John helps put everything into perspective.

And, oh my goodness, if you read ONE post today, make sure you read this one. Kay lives about 10 miles from the Mexican border in AZ, and she offers a sane, yet scary, perspective on what's going on there.

Mary DeMuth, wonderful author herself, wrote a book review that I found interesting. I haven't read the book, so I can't endorse it, but I loved the answers the authors gave to her questions. They talk about intentionality at home, and you know I'm all over that. Might have to check this one out sometime.

Now, I've already read these posts, so I'm going shopping today. Actually, that's not as fun as it sounds. I have to find a dress or some shoes or some jewelry to wear with a dress I already have for a black tie event that B and I are going to on Saturday. Friends, you have no idea how much I dislike doing this kind of thing. I would much rather stay home and read blog posts. But, alas, I will do my wifely duty and find something to wear.

Meanwhile, you all carry on. And while you're here, leave me a comment letting me know what you're doing today. (I didn't hear from ANYONE yesterday, and I'm feeling a little lonely.)



  1. Working!

    P.S. Do you have any special desires for your Hunt-style belated birthday ?? :)

  2. I'm playing catch-up at home since I was gone from 7 a.m. till 9 p.m. yesterday. Went to a "junior" day with K at our favorite college.

    I'm exhausted and trying to catch up with the home fires.

  3. Oh, Jodi. Don't even think about it! :)

    Hope you got some rest today, Linda. How did she like it?

  4. My daughters could be professional shoppers. I wish they could figure out how to make it a profitable business! They could have helped you- they have impeccable taste, a nose to sniff out great bargains and think it's grand fun. They got none of this from me or their dad. LOL! But they are handy to know. ; )
