cool stuff i like
March 23, 2017
Hello my friends! I'm here a day early! Because my site is getting looked at for a wee makeover and if we're down for a few days, I wanted to be sure and get this post out. So...yeah. Say goodbye to those horrible horrible bluebirds! It's so funny, I used to be so fond of them in the beginning. Now I can't stand the sight of 'em, ha ha ha. It was either - get rid of the bluebirds or I need to stop blogging. Ugh. They were haunting me in my sleep! I'm not a big enough blogger to warrant throwing a ton of $$ at this site to make it have every bell and whistle in the world and custom graphics and all that jazz, but I really needed to look at something other than what I've been looking at, and I think a change will be nice for you all as well. I've been working on de-cluttering the site and my sidebars. So let's hope it works out!
Cool things for everyone this week:
Postcards from the resistance. Please check out these beautiful creations, many of them from my favorite photographers! Beautiful work from amazing artists, for a worthy cause. So worth your time to take a peek, apparently they are flying out the door.
Let this be good and not mess up Mulan.
THE COLORS. You will love love love my friend Cindy Cavanaugh's photos. Incredible.
Apple cinnamon breakfast muffins.
More amazing photos. Girls going to school all around the globe.
Put an egg on it.
An English cottage garden.
A week of healthy meals.
Cool Book of the Week: 'The Lightning Queen' by Laura Resau is one I've been checking out for awhile. I almost got Julia to buy it but she saw something else that she was really hankering for, so this was lost in the shuffle. But I really want someone to read it! You, me, or whoever. Ha! I love the cover, which is always a big seller for me, as you know. It sounds so unusual and fantastic - a Romani girl and a Mixteco boy in a 1950's mountain village in Mexico become friends after a fortuneteller predicts the two will form a lifelong friendship. She eventually becomes a film star and he becomes a healer, and they lose track of each other only to be brought back together by their grandchildren. It got rave reviews on Amazon.
'The Help'. Oh my word it's so great, I can't believe I hadn't ever read it before. And I've been watching the back episodes of 'Victoria' that I missed, because now I signed up for PBS Passport. And eating....nothing exciting really. I did make some sweet potato, coconut and date muffins from this cookbook and they were fabulous! It's a beautiful cookbook. Ok see you on the other side of my blog remodel - let's hope all goes well and I never have to see those bluebirds again.
