Weekend Links

{Beauty in unexpected places… as everything else in the garden withers and dies with the November chill, these flowers somehow survived, and their cheeriness makes me smile each time I look outside.}

Links I loved this week:

Our fall chicken harvest @ Simple Bites {homesteading in action}

Creamy Roasted Garlic Butternut Soup @Kitchen Stewardship {another way to use those winter squash}

As children’s freedom has declined, so has their creativity @ The Creativity Post (thanks, Simple Homeschool!)

5 Easy Remedies for the Cold and Flu Season @ Health, Home & Happiness {I would add vapor rub and cold kicker to the list}

Sometimes “Being There” for Your Child is No More Than Just Sitting Beside Them @ A Delightful Home

Repurposing Sweaters (Day 30 of 31 Days of Sewing School) @ Simple Homemade {LOVE the vase holders!}

The Thanksgiving Tree (with free printables) @ A Holy Experience {did you see all these other great Thanksgiving links and activities?}

To all the heroes- yes you, the ones up to your elbows in ordinary @ Lisa-Jo Baker

{Dehydrating the rosehips I “wildcrafted” from my yard, to use medicinally in herbal remedies this winter, plus some banana chips from the huge bunch of discounted ripe bananas I purchased this week}

This week…

What I’m reading: The No Brainer Wardrobe and 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life

What I’m doing: Researching, continually researching, for a special family event. I’ll tell… eventually. :)

What I’ve been making: Experimental meals for our grain-free stint, mostly good. But. Please note- egg/coconut flour wraps do NOT taste good with Thai inspired chicken, veggies, bean sprouts and peanut sauce. But, pan-seared Ahi Tuna with homemade garden pesto sauce that I froze back in September? Oh. my. goodness. yum.

What I’m watching: Rain steadily drip, drip, dripping from green patio umbrellas.

What I’m enjoying: Working with my husband on business projects. We make a good team.

What have you been enjoying this week!

  1. Thanks for sharing my post!

    I enjoyed reading what you are doing. That is a nice addition to just sharing links! A pity your coconut flour wraps didn’t taste god with the Thai inspired chicken. It sure sounds delicious.
