Saturday Sharing: Martha Stewart, kitchen witchery, temporary marriage contracts, and more

Today’s Saturday Sharing almost became a Sunday Sharing! I’m exhausted. It’s 11 pm and I’ve been up since 2am . . . but once I start reading, I can’t stop! I swear I have this love/hate relationship with blogging! :-)

Have you ever felt like the little things were enough to drive you over the edge? I know I have . . . and so has Shawna!

How many outfits can you create from 13 articles of clothing? In a recent post, Paula showed how Banana Republic made 31 different outfits . . . If I ever get a real, grown-up wardrobe, I’m going to have to check this out!

Samantha’s recent post made me think about the events that have occurred in my life to make me realize just how short life is . . . and how it has affected the way that I live.

What are your feelings about Martha Stewart? Lisa thinks that there is just “something about her”! Read her post to find out why!

For my mommy and teacher readers, are you familiar with Todd Parr? Caroline recently reviewed one of Todd Parr’s books, “Reading Makes You Feel Good” – it just so happens that Abby checked that book out of the library a week and a half ago!

Nivedha, a magnificent poet and one of my more recent followees wrote this beautiful, though despairing poetic tale.

Does anyone remember good old-fashioned letter writing? And pen pals? And the joy in the anticipation? Well Anita does and she’s giving that gift to her daughter! (Who is hopefully going to become my daughter’s pen pal as well!)

I once had a friend refer to spell-casting as “prayer with oomph” – I think the same could be said for kitchen witchery, especially after reading Camylleon’s latest post!

Perspective is a funny thing. Alexandra beautifully demonstrates how the points of view of children and adults are often worlds apart, even when the experience is identical.

Where do you fit in? How do you learn? How do your children learn . . . and more importantly, did that influence your choice of schooling for your child? Read Jennifer’s post to discover one of the many reasons it is important to be active in your child’s education.

In this heartbreaking and incredible post, Jared explains that “AIDS is no joke” and how quickly perspectives can change.

If you had the option, would you choose a temporary marriage contract? Would you allow yourself an “out” just in case it doesn’t work? Do you think people should have the option? Sharon discussed all of that in a recent blog post.

  3. Thanks for linking to me, Dayle. : ) I also love/hate blogging and the Internet. If I get on for more than 5 minutes, I’m in big trouble! It can quickly turn into 5 hours. :P

    • You are quite welcome! I’m so happy that you’re back to blogging!

      I actually stole the idea from Paula (the Banana Republic post) after she stole it from someone else :-)

  5. Dayle, thanks so much for sharing that post. It really means a lot to me. I feel the same way — the incident was a really strong reminder for me that life is so, so short. And thanks as always for this Saturday review! I love being led to different parts of the blogosphere. =) Hugs!
