I should rename this feature “around the interwebs this week-ish” since consistency is not my strong suit. Oh well! Here is what I thought was worth sharing from around the world wide web this week (ish):
- This just PISSES me off. I wanted to use stronger language there, but restrained myself. Paying attention is the very least we can do.
- I loved Jen Hatmaker’s list of question ideas to ask the kiddos about their days. We’re in the car quite a bit on school days, so I took a screen shot of these questions to give me some fresh material.
- I geek about the meaning of work and its intersection (or not) with calling, vocation, hobbies, etc., so I loved Byron’s Labor Day reflection and his list of books.
- Such a good reminder: “We’re not allowed to struggle until after we’ve done our victory lap. That’s fine, but it’s less helpful than hearing from people in the trenches. How do I show up in the during? Maybe this all happened to me so I can go out there and be seen in the during.” (P.S. Go pick up a copy of Love Warrior if you haven’t already – so many thoughts).
- Cold soups since it feels like soup season, but it’s still over 80.
- Stop complaining that locally grown produce is expensive.
- An every damn day list. I love this idea. I’m thinking I could make my own, and then hang it in the bathroom where I would see it every day. Maybe under some glass, so I could physically cross things off of it since one of my greatest pleasures in life is crossing things off of my to do list.
- I loved this couple’s episode of What Should I Read Next and the summer recaps at the end.
- Uh oh, I have been on an Enneagram bender for the last few weeks. I checked out a few books from the library on it too, but I found some podcasts more helpful. This Liturgist episode was a great recap, and I’ve loved all of these episodes with individuals of each type.
- We had a family movie night with the new Cinderella – and we all loved it!
- I only listen to Here’s the Thing when I really like the guest, but I’m always reminded that Alec Baldwin is a weirdly good interviewer. I loved the Michael Pollan episode.
Oldies on the blog
- The Hunger Challenge posts are fun to revisit – and would be a fun challenge after the summer.
- Making some of these this week just because I want to.
