Fun For Days Inside

Hey!

Is it cold at your house?  The temperature is frigid here.  I found this sentiment on Facebook which totally sums up my thoughts for the week.

Since going outside is a bust, how about a few suggestions for this weekend?

We’ve been captivated and enchanted by the lovely Essie Davis in her role as Phrynie Fisher in Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.  Produced by an Australian company, the show is set in the 1920s.  We’ve been watching via dvds from Netflix since its not available in our market.  Please PBS pick it up!  If you love Downton Abbey, I think you’d love this series.

For those of you who would prefer to read than spend your time watching TV, Modern Mrs. Darcy has issued a reading challenge for 2015 that you might like to join.  Just click this link for more details.

Or maybe this weekend, you’d rather travel the world from your computer.

Stay warm and have fun!

Blessings,

Mimi

Friday Fun #6

Hey!

The temperature outside is frigid.  I would love to sit all bundled up under a blanket reading but today is a writing day.  I’m making progress on my bible study but the tempo is slow.

  • Beautiful images of our world found here on Distractify.   I couldn’t pick a favorite.  They’re all so stunning.
  • Do you dream of traveling the world to see those beautiful sites in the above link?  How much fun would it be to go around the world meeting and filming a new person each day?  This pair of filmmakers are doing just that. Check it out here.
  • Bored with your job?  Would you like to work for a doggie daycare and be the puppy lifeguard on duty?  Puppy Pool Party here.

Friday Finds #5

Hey!

I’m dropping in for a quick Friday Finds post.  I know I’ve been scarce on the blog lately  but my darling daughter, Catie, has done an awesome job filling in for me.  Soon, I’ll divulge what I’ve been doing.  Click on the pics below for more details of each find.

In case you missed the beginning of Catie’s Cooking Challenge, we had grilled vegetable sandwiches with homemade pesto mayo.  Delicious!

sandwich 1With the holidays coming and cards to be addressed, Jones Design Company comes to the rescue with “How to Create Fake Calligraphy.” Looks do-able!

If calligraphy is too much for you, Wordmark.it is wonderful.  You can compare what you want to say in all of your fonts at one time in order to choose the right one.   — Genius!  Thanks, Just a Girl for sharing!

I could look at these winning photos from the National Geographic Photo Contest all day.
