Saturday morning! Yeah! Time to check the www to see what my fav bloggers, artists, retailers (hee hee) have been up to. As I’m a serious fan (oxymoron?) of Joanna Goddard, I always start with a cup of jo to see her happy weekend post from yesterday and, of course, any days that I may have missed the past week. She has two little boys as well, and though my youngest is just slightly older than her oldest, I still love reading about her parenting exploits and checking out her tips for the art of wrangling any age of child. Just in case I have to…you know…help parent someone else’s kid or one of my own who has reverted back to his toddler days (this happens more often than you might expect!!)
Also, her beauty uniform and mothering around the world features are captivating and inspiring!! Thanks, Joanna!!
Next, is usually over to Molly Yeh (or is it Yeah??!!) for some amazing cakes, treats and savoury wonders too! She’s a fierce photographer as well so there is always immediate food swooning following by artistic swooning!! Yum for Yeh and yeh for yum!
Then over to The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, whom I absolutely adore! And excitement abounds right now (more than usual) as her new Mercantile has just opened in Oklahoma! Pawhuska, I believe. For more facts, here is her link. She is hiring, too! and I am sooo tempted-being the retail queen that I am. I pretty much live in the polar opposite of where she does but I am so desperately in love with her blog and have been for years, that who cares. Really. Who cares? She speaks directly to my need for good food, pretty things, space and cattle! And, she’s on the Food Network! So you’ve probably seen her there. (I haven’t as I don’t have tv #Netflix)
Well, off to work now, but more of my favs to come…
Enjoy your day surfing but try to get some bit of fresh air and outdoor fun, too!!
I attended one day of this summit yesterday in Banff, Alberta and, although, I have started processing the sad, moving and horrific information about Canada’s history and Canadian Residential Schools, I will never stop grieving. That said, I learned many things about my people and when I say my people, I now refer to all of my people worldwide, including you. You are my people. Especially, my friends descended from First Nations around the globe-you make up my people, you always did and you know that but now I will use the correct syntax henceforth thanks to my friend, Judy.
Please visit banffcentre.ca for more information or the Truth and Reconciliation Commision’s website or your country’s truth site-I hope there is one. There are 94 calls to action. Please pick one and share with our people.
