- On Why It’s So Critical That We Connect With Friends and 17 Wonderful Ways A Woman Can Find Rest & Refreshment at Club 31 Women (this blog is new to me but I think both these articles are pretty good)
- For anyone in the southern California area (esp. near San Diego), there will be a 3-hour, Precept Ministries' Essentials of Inductive Bible Study workshop on November 8th. I'd love to go for a sort of "refresher" but since we moved twice in the last year and then had a surprise hospital bill in August, it's wisest to pass on it. Maybe they'll hold one closer to where we now live in the not-too-distant future.
- The Kindle version of Rediscovering Holiness: Know the Fullness of Life with God by J.I. Packer is on sale for $2.99. I haven't read it but the sample looks good so I'm seriously thinking about buying it (per Gospel E-Books it will be on sale for this price until Oct. 29). Yesterday I downloaded Love's Reckoning by Laura Frantz for free (woot!) but when I checked this morning the price is back up to $6.15. It's the first in a series and I've read several good reviews, so if like it I sure hope the library here has her books.
Snail Mail ~
- Well, sort of. . . LWA posted some clever Mail Box Costumes just in time for Halloween. And I love the new Global Christmas stamps they shared.
- Triangular letters - doubt the mailman would like these but they'd be fun
- Felt Envelopes - I especially like the red one, bet they'd be fun to mail
- Tuesday's Reflection: Writing Letters - like this quote, although I'm not sure I can apply it to emails:
"Handwriting a letter slows me down, makes me more aware of the person in my life and myself in the person's life, and I hope to return to that practice more frequently, but I think I hope I can bring that same consciousness to the screen as well."
- How To Create A Food Storage Supply For $5 Per Week
- No Pantry? 8 Tips for Keeping Counters Clutter-Free
- Savvy Ways to Store Food - annoying pop-ups but they do have some great food storage ideas
- I like & try to check the blog Coffee, Tea, Books and Me fairly often. And this post reminded me that I need to check out the Thrift stores in this area. When we moved last year we got rid of a lot stuff, including many holiday decorations so I'll need to find new ones for affordable prices. With a little creativity, I should be able to come up with some decent autumn/fall and Christmas decorations.
- Speaking of fall and winter, I love gingerbread cake (& cookies) at this time of year and this recipe at Georgia, Plain & Simple sounds delicious. Since my birthday is close to Christmas I usually ask for gingerbread cake but it's usually just a box mix. This year I just might request this. =D
