Delightful Links for the Weekend {5/26}

As I mentioned on our facebook page, I am doing some serious decluttering of our home right now. I’m also trying to revamp our storage spaces and make things easier to manage. Last night my husband and I put these crate shelves together for my daughter’s room. A post with how-to details is in the works.

I’ve been missing blogging but have yet to carve out any decent time for it after I have done everything else I need to do! I’m hoping to be back here more regularly before too long, but I’m still unsure as to when and how!

I hope you are all well and enjoying your sweet families this weekend.

Here are some posts and articles I’ve enjoyed recently:

Natural Must-Have Products for Summer by Hyacynth Worth

Easiest, Healthiest Strawberry Lemonade Ever @ Laurel of Leaves

How to remove your name and address from whitepages.com – I did this after finding anyone could look up and see my home address!

Deep Dark Chocolate Cheesecake – I made this for my husband’s birthday (but added some coffee). It was deliciously rich. He loved it.

How to Miss a Childhood @ Hands Free Mama – A very important read. I hope you check it out.

And now for some BIG news . . .


Earlier this year I got up early and stayed up late for many days working on a chapter for an upcoming ebook especially for homemakers.

The Heart of Simplicity: Foundations for Christian Homemaking.

This ebook features 13 different writers, and covers important topics such as:

  • Foundations in Christ
  • Marriage
  • Motherhood
  • Missions
  • Home Education
  • Family Economy
  • Family Health
  • Time Management
  • Housecleaning
  • Organization
  • Hospitality
  • Giving
  • Leaving an Eternal Legacy
  • I’ll be sharing more details soon.

    You can learn more about the book at The Heart of Simplicity. It releases this Wednesday!

    What have you been up to?

    1. I just wanted to thank you for the link to the article on Hands Free Mama. Like you said, it’s such an important article. I’ve seen the parents at the park with their heads down, looking at their phones, and the families at restaurants all looking at phones and not interacting. I’m not trying to be judgmental — I just think it’s really sad. I don’t own a smartphone (gasp!) so I’m not really checking my email on the go or updating facebook constantly, but I do have areas in my life where I can definitely improve. After I read it, I shared the post on Pinterest and a bunch of people repinned it. Thanks for the great link — and for your wonderful, informative blog.

      • HI Heather,

        I feel the same way as you, I see these things and try not to be judgmental, but it does make me feel sad when kids are staring at the ceiling while waiting for their food at a restaurant and mom and dad are looking at their phones.

        We all have areas that suck us in and distract us. I’m grateful for articles like the one from Hands Free Mama that give us a good kick and wake up call from time to time. We need that to help us stay the course (at least I do!).

        I’m glad you shared the article. The more people that read it, the better.

    2. Thanks for linking up to my Strawberry Lemonade recipe! Now I definitely need to click through to see about this Deep Dark Chocolate Cheesecake. It sounds divine! ;)

    3. It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people for this
      topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
      Thanks

    4. Fine way of describing, annd good post to get informatioon on the
      topic of my presentation topic, which i am goinmg to present

    5. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
