Odds and Ends



1. Wowza. This rings true for me. Social media…it’s a slippery slope.

2. This artist was seriously ahead of the color curve.

3. Oooh oooh oooh. I can never seem to catch the videostream when it’s live, but the ‘best of’ ones are awesome.

4. If #1 resonated with you, this is a must-read.

5. There’s a reason Rebecca just won Best Writing at the Iris Awards. This post is perfection.

6. Coolest thing on the internet, for reals. Tree rings! On a record player!

Friday Five.

1. I am grateful for a few fellow Lymies that have been invaluable to me over the past month. You know who you are!

2. I am grateful for Lundberg Sea Salt Rice Chips. My carb intake is minimal, so these gluten-free chips are my treat once in awhile. Bomb dot com.

3. I am grateful that I stopped my antibiotics this week. I can exist outside in sunlight! And drink a glass of wine if I please! Praise be, people!

4. I am grateful that Wita has decided to start calling me “sister” or “sissy.” I have no idea why, but it’s just about the cutest thing on this planet. “Let’s go, sister.” “Can we have a treat, sissy?” STOP IT WITH THE CUTE.

5. I am grateful for this book recommendation. Starting it this weekend.

Happy Friday!

    I very rarely comment here, though I’ve been around your blog(s) for a while; i read about the great bangs chop, the blunt brigade, and saw a sick and baby-faced wito sing “my favorite things” (before my own two bambinos were born!). I just wanted to say that i respect and appreciate how you’ve been brave enough to allow your blog to grow and flex with you over the years. This last step has been a big one and you’re handling it with grace and authenticity. Well done. :)

    The tree-ring music made me want to cry. It reminded me of the story of the giant redwood poachers.


    “It’s not just a property crime. It’s a legacy, like hacking up a church.” So sad! I’m not a tree-hugger in the activist sense, but I do love nature sometimes more than I love humanity. I think it’s such an injustice!

  3. I think I also need to read that book.

  4. Your Friday Five really made me smile! Have an awesome weekend and Happy Mother’s Day!

  5. Beautiful colors in the image you chose, perfect for spring!

  6. Oh, loving this list of links! I am going to have to look for those rice crisps. Sometimes it is fun to have a treat like that!! LOVED the record player and I definitely need to think about my social media addiction too.

    Fab list! xoxo

    You need to read the book Carry on, Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. She is a fellow “lymie” and writes beautifully and hilariously about marriage & parenting. You can probably pick it up at the library.
