The weekend is here and I am happy because the weather is getting warm and that is a good, good thing. It's our turn in the Southern Hemisphere to get some sun even though by January I will more than likely be wishing for cooler weather again!
I found some interesting bits n' pieces in my travels on the net this week and thought I would share them with you.
First, have a look at Martha Stewart's blog, The Martha Blog. Not only is it full of great lifestyle information but one of Martha's shows this week was about blogging. Her guests and audience were all well known bloggers. Martha also has a blog contest you may be interested in.
If you like to think outside the box and love a dose of lateral thinking, go to Yoko Ono's blog called 100 Acorns. I am addicted and I wish I had discovered it earlier.
What do you think of this for a romantic gift? I would not say no and love this idea.
I am sure we've all had to stop and gather our thoughts before replying to unwelcome emails at times, but here is a way to be polite but still say what you really think. Funny!
For those who are interested in home design, check out Sixx Designs. The husband and wife team (who also happen to have six young children) make creating beautiful, artistic homes look easy. My favourite design blog is Desire to Inspire, which is trying to inspire the world one room at a time.
I love stationery of any kind and spent some time during the week looking at See Jane Work - organisation is a good thing, right?
WorldofGood.com by eBay is the world’s first online marketplace to convene thousands of People Positive and Eco Positive sellers and products all in one place. Positive step I think.
If you have young children or grandchildren you will love this Magical Thinking from Inchmark Journal.
If you are an AC/DC fan they have just released a video of their first single, Rock N’ Roll Train from the band’s upcoming album Black Ice. The first in eight years. I really like it although there is something not quite right about a middle-aged Angus still wearing that school uniform.
On the food front, I will be making cookies this weekend. When you see them at Smitten Kitchen you will just go uh huh and completely understand why.
And for those who need some positive thinking, go visit Kenny McBride's blog. Reading this blog might make a difference.
And finally, to end with a little blue sky thinking, if I asked you to go and find Osama bin Laden where would you look and why would you look there.
The most creative response will win something suitably Australian (no not a Kangaroo, Koala, Kylie Minogue sorry Henry or AC/DC for that matter). Entries will close at midnight next Friday and the winner will be announced next Saturday (just reply via comments on the blog post).
