A couple of years ago, on a previous blog, I had a feature called Friday Faves. Each Friday I would post the links I thought would interest readers. It was also a great way to save links I might want to refer back to. I stopped doing those posts when it seemed everyone else was doing the same and I didn’t have time to read all the links everyone shared.
There are weeks I find an article I would love to share with you and realized I’ve missed posting my favorite links. So I’ve decided to bring the favorite links post back again. I won’t make this a regular weekly feature, as some weeks it feels too much like work. By doing these posts less frequently, I hope to have more quality links you will enjoy and not overwhelm you with reading material.
I can’t say I love the subject matter of this first post, Return of “kings”, excuse me while I vomit, but I love the passion Wendy expressed and her ability to say it so well for all women.
It’s that time of year again when if you are like me you are in garden planning mode. I love this upcycled DIY bamboo or stick fence and can see it being a sturdy trellis for flowering vines as well.
Are you having a hard time giving up plastic? I know plastic has invaded every aspect of life but there are some plastic items we don’t need and shouldn’t be sold. Take the plastic straw. We could drink right out of a glass, couldn’t we? I asked a server in a restaurant once why they gave everyone straws who had a cold drink. The answer was that people don’t like drinking out of a glass someone else used. I’m sorry but if I don’t think the glass was properly cleaned I don’t want to eat at your establishment. Anyway, if you need another reason to give up disposable straws you might want to check out the video in Plastic, and you, and turtles.
Cynthia has family all over the globe and shared this story of a baby sloth that fell from her sister’s rafter and how hard they worked to reunite the baby with its mother to save its life.
