Good Reads

Happy weekend! In fact, happy loooong weekend. Seems like bankers and school children alike have a three-day weekend this weekend which means that the Wild Fam will all be together. Mostly.

We're taking the two-who-remain to an undisclosed location for part of the weekend. I'll tell you all about it next week because it should be fun.

But what say we play a little game? Can you figure out where we are if I give you just three little words?

Stovepipe. Civil. Penny.

There. You should be able to guess.

Now, just in case I haven't entertained you enough this week with great memories and good food, here are some of my favorite posts from this week (and maybe one or two from last).

Flowerpatch Farm Girl is my kind of gal. She's funny. She's spunky. And she's full of life. Plus, she loves her children more than anything. This post is a tribute to her sweetie called Ruby. Celebrate with her today.

A few weeks back I gave you instructions about how to set up a feed reader. My instructions took a lot of words. Jo-Lynne managed to explain it much more simply in this post.

Oh my goodness, I almost jumped up and down as I read this post by Don Miller this week because this is something that I SO resonate with, and it's something that B and I talk about. A lot.

And since I'll be headed out on a retreat in a couple of weeks, this post by Jon Acuff totally made me laugh. Because it is pretty much 100% true.

And this one? Just. Plain. Cool.

There you go. Happy reading! Happy weekend.



  1. Another guessing game... I didn't do so well last time with the whole Amish community thing. But I'll try again! Springfield. I'm reasoning it has to have something to do with Lincoln, the land in which we live, and perhaps it's the capital. Now I've received no help in this (as you can see I'm the first post and my family is still asleep), so I'm a little afraid to guess and demonstrate any ignorance! :-) Wherever you will be, have a great weekend!!

  2. I was going to say Springfield too, so you're at least in good company, Carolyn!
