I’m doing some experimenting with posting times, so the weekend links posts will now be on Fridays…just a heads up. 🙂 Also, I’ve been working on some things on the back end, so if you see anything loading oddly, drop me a line!
It’s been a pretty crazy week, and I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling that way. Here are a few things from around the internet that caught my eye this week…
Your Strong-Willed Child … Isn’t “…there is no will power involved in taking the path of least resistance. It is easier for me to throw a tantrum than to conduct myself with dignity. It is easier for me to give in to temptation than to resist it. It is easier for me to demand what I want, right now, than to wait with patience, or deny myself altogether. The child throwing himself to the ground isn’t strong at all; he’s a slave.”
A thrift store find turned out to be an original Salvador Dali woodcarving Evidence that thrifting is awesome!
Hysteria Drives Clicks Excellent advice given the current news.
This, Not Hand Sanitizer, Will Save Us from the COVID-19 Coronavirus I thought the science behind this was fascinating. And the kids enjoyed this version of the same science.
7 Benefits to Living in a Smaller Home At 2,000 square feet, our house is considerably smaller than those around us and the ones we looked at prior to buying this one. And I am thankful for that.

(2017) Curecanti, Colorado National Monument, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison Junior Ranger Adventures This was a quick trip we took to western Colorado a few years ago to explore some of our semi-local national parks.
(2015) Simple Apple Dip (refined sugar free) This is my very favorite recipe for an extremely simple fruit deep that’s very easy to whip up!
(2014) Missing Beauty I got pretty real about the struggles I had with mothering after C was born. It’s actually a little difficult for me to read this post as that old guilt is still around. (I did follow it with this one just a few days later.)
(2013) God is Good. “What I’ve wrestled with in all of this is that God’s goodness isn’t determined by the blessings He bestows. He is not an intergalactic genie Who is defined by how many wishes He allots us and is only good if He gives us what we want. God is good because He is good. It’s simply the definition of Who He is.”
