Blogs, Articles of Interest and Other Such Items

So much time to read...NOT!  But you know how much I do love to read.  Like many I have a list of blogs...I have TWO one on Internet Explorer and one on Mozilla...and I take a few minutes here and an hour there each day to read through a few.  I am almost always adding and deleting blogs, keeping just a handful as constants in my busiest times.  I've also been collecting links for various things I thought you might enjoy.  Here's a sampling of what I've been reading and enjoying lately.

A heartwarming story:

I love to visit Happy Miscellany now and then.  I found this 'coffee sack' logo on her blog which she has kindly shared.  Print off on transferable paper and then put on your own fabric...This product is very easy to use by the way whether you get the iron on type or the adhesive type.  Katie did t-shirts earlier this spring for herself and friends with the adhesive type and  they looked fantastic.

I couldn't help but think of V and her recent cold when I saw this post this week.

I think this is a brilliant idea, don't you?  And it's so cute.  Best idea of all?  The emergency sustenance.

Loved reading through this series of posts:

How do you feel about recipes?  These sounded good to me:

This recipe is for a homemade 'Ade' type drink, as in Gatorade/Powerade.  I sent this to my daughter in law who dislikes water and has had trouble being dehydrated with this pregnancy.  I think it would be great to have on hand if colds and flu are roaming around in a household, too.

Now for just general perusing, why not look into these blogs?

I have been such a slacker keeping up with you :-( I've not been much at keeping up with myself, either. But I found this while reading back and catching up on posts I've missed. I do like the cough n carry lol. Very cute idea, and of course you just have to have a little sugary pick-me-up when you're feeling under the weather ;-)
