Some Things to Share

It has been one of those days - up early and out the door - running all day long. Consequently....I don't have a proper post for today. There are however, a couple of new and interesting things happening that I am eager to share with you.

Perhaps you've noticed the lovely Victorian lady in my sidebar. She came from Tonia's blog, Study in Brown. Tonia has decided to resurrect a club she formed years ago. I think if you go here and read what she has in mind, you will be delighted.

Over at Culture Smith, Cheryl is looking for innovative ideas on simplifying life. I am sure that most of you have things you would like to share. Every Saturday she will provide a place to share ideas. Who of us couldn't use a little help in simplifying our lives? I could use quite a bit of it to tell the truth. My days seem to just rush by at breakneck speed. I want to slow things down and savor the moments.

There is one more thing I'd like to share with you. I imagine that by now nearly everyone knows about Ann Voskamp's book. If you've ever read her blog, A Holy Experience, you know what a gifted writer she is. I have just begun reading "a thousand gifts." Some have described it as life-changing,and I don't think they exaggerate. I recommend it with all my heart. There will even be a Bloom Book Club beginning this sunday with videos of Ann discussing her book.
