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!

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.

Simply September

Hey!

September was a month of new beginnings.

  • I started a new series of posts called Friday Finds.  Here’s a sample.
  • I started a Fall Bible Study Session at my other website, Sweeter Than Honey Ministry.  We’re currently in Week 4 of Children of the Day: A Study of 1 & 2 Thessalonians by Beth Moore.  You can check it out here.
  • And last but not least, I registered for a blogging 101 course online.

I also began working on a special project this month.  I can’t wait to share more details about it, but for now, they’ll have to wait.

One of the lessons I’m being reminded of this month is that I can’t do everything and sometimes that means I must say no to something that I really enjoy because I’ve said yes to others.  With that lesson, comes the reality that I can’t participate in this year’s 31 Day Challenge but I’ll cheer and applaud everyone else along.

The best fiction book that I read this month was a quirky, sweet story called The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.

The main character, Don, reminded me of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory.  Don decides he wants a wife so he puts together a questionnaire in an attempt to weed out the undesirables.  Rosie comes into his life with none of the qualifications that he is seeking and … ( I can’t spoil it for you. ) oh and beware, f-bombs fall.  Here’s a quote to give you a taste of Don’s personality.

“Throughout my life I have been criticized for a perceived lack of emotion as if this were some absolute fault….Occasionally an emotion can be enjoyed – the gratitude I felt for my sister, who visited me even during the bad times, the primitive feeling of well being after a glass of wine – but we need to be vigilant that emotions do not cripple us.  I diagnosed brain overload and set up a spreadsheet to analyze the situation.”

We’re loving these TV shows.

  • Scorpion — Nerds saving the world
  • Madame Secretary — Woman saving the world
  • Once Upon A Time — Fairy Tale Characters saving the world
  • Girlfriend Intervention — Sisters saving a basic woman from her bad wardrobe and decorating world.

I’m sensing a theme here….

delta 7 months

Delta is 7 1/2 months old now and this past weekend, her world got rocked when a little fluffy kitten decided to take up residence with us.  Delta really wanted to play and lick her face and nibble on her but she was having to learn to be gentle.  Life is so hard for a puppy.

Friday Finds #1

Hey!

I’m starting a new friday series called Friday Finds.  On fridays, I’m going to share all sorts of things I’ve found around the web.  I hope you enjoy this new feature to the blog.

Fred MacMurray immediately comes to mind when I think of Disney and movie dads.  In this article, Fred MacMurray’s daughter writes about her childhood home and about her famous father.

 I laughed so hard when I saw this video!  Girlfriend is just keeping it real about her DramaMine!
