Sorry for skipping out on SLL last week! I stepped on my laptop last Monday night and had to wait a week to get a new screen for it. And apparently, I don’t read blogs on the desktop. (Sitting in the chair there tends to make my back hurt.)
It’s been a good but busy week. Libbie had her first field trip today; David celebrated a Johnny Appleseed week at pre-school; and Joshua and I hit up a friend’s house, the Y, the doctor’s office, and a playground – not to mention the grocery and other errands.
I feel like I’m desperately seeking rhythm to our weeks and not finding much of it. Adding exercise and essential oils to my days has helped my physical and emotional health immensely, though. I’m making baby steps.
Anyway, here’s some good stuff I read this week. Look forward to seeing your links!
- Reread Your Favorite Books from Childhood at BookRiot – Having young kids is a great way to do this! I try to read aloud from a longer book every night with Libbie. We just finished Freckle Juice. I had no idea it was under 50 pages. Seemed so long when I was a kid! 🙂
- When You’re Just Flat-Out Desperate to Live What You Believe at A Holy Experience – This is a very hard post to read, but I love what is says. (And on a way less serious note, remember that time I said, well, the b-word to Ann Voskamp? Kind of sad I am not going to Allume this year.)
- A New Book Genre at Leigh Kramer
- The Scary Mommy Manifesto at Scary Mommy (language)
- Rewriting Is the Real Work of Writing at Tricia Goyer
- YUM of the Week: Pumpkin Cheesecake Skillet Blondie at TidyMom
Reading offline: Xenocide by Orson Scott Card (maybe … it just got VERY sciencey and my brain tried to explode) and Quitter by Jon Acuff, plus listening to The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty (narrated by Elizabeth McGovern from Downton Abbey – LOVE her voice!).
