A list of things I’ve found interesting this week:

Josh’s Sounds for my Soul posts. We played in a worship band together in Tulsa in what seems like another lifetime, and he has good taste in music. 🙂

This post about raising your own chickens for meat. Please don’t think I’m a horrible person – I think I could actually do this. While I do enjoy having pets, I also tend to keep my distance from them emotionally. And what she says about knowing EXACTLY where that chicken had been, I get that. Maybe I would surprise myself, but there’s just something so inviting to me about truly producing my own food. It’s earthy and basic and…I dunno. I’ll quit trying to explain myself now.

You do not want to click on this link if you are not female and interested in birth. Trust me. But, this post on labor was absolutely fascinating. When I read this kind of thing it honestly kinda makes me want to vomit, having so recently experienced it. Yet I can’t. quit. reading. And what she describes here is so like what I experienced this time, that it was highly reassuring to me. I would love to do something related to helping women birth naturally someday. Don’t know if I have it in me to be a midwife, but I am fascinated.

We have one of these strollers that were recalled this week. I have yet to go dig it out of the garage and see which kind of finger-amputating contraption it has, so I can order the repair kit.

I’m making sauerkraut this weekend. Nick LOVES it, and I’m….getting used to it. No, really it’s not bad at all. 🙂

I wrote this post about Eggs. And then the co-author of Dangerous Grains made a comment on it! How cool!!!

More Random Stuff

Have you seen Jott yet? Call a toll-free number, leave a message, and it transcribes it and emails it to you or anyone else you have on your contacts. You can even send it to Blogger, Remember the Milk, or a huge list of other stuff.

Yes, I’m a geek. You know you’ve left yourself voicemails so you don’t forget something…

We had a consultation with another potential Maeve client last night. She wants a beautiful white mermaid strapless gown with a long black sash that ties in back. Emily is sketching it for us tonight. Maybe I’ll post it tomorrow. We also have a first fitting with Renee on Saturday. We’re excited!

My kids just got up. That was NOT a nap.

Got our produce delivery today. We pulled it out of the box and set it all over the table:
This was $38 worth. How much are we willing to bet on us actually eating all of this before it goes bad? I’m pretty determined. Wagers?

Hannah took this one:
We’re off to gramma’s house…

Fun Links

Jess posted a whole blog full of links. These are my favorites.

Reflexology map – these are the points on your feet you can rub to benefit different body parts, or you can find where the “knots” on your feet are, and figure out what the problem is. There’s a link to the hand map also. Fascinating.

Toddler Dress from Man’s dress shirt – I am so going to do this.

Cheap Natural Cleaning supplies – I can always use new combinations of the standard baking soda, vinegar and tea tree oil. 🙂

Population – I haven’t read much of this site yet, but it looks like the concept of overpopulation is another one of those stupid ideas with no basis in reality.

I HATE LEFTOVERS – Ideas to make eating leftovers a little more palatable. Gross. Maybe this would help.

Have you found any fun links recently?
