Week-end: links & life

“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.” -Thoreau

Once again, I’ve dumped facebook. Basically, I’m just trying to streamline life wherever I can, and FB and I have been on rocky terms for a long time. But I’d been sharing some pretty great links from around the web on that facebook page, so instead of doing that, I’m going to put them into a post here on the blog at the end of each week. I considered calling this weekly thing The Great Gallimaufry (because that’s just fun to say) but normal non-word-nerdy folks probably don’t appreciate gallimaufry quite as much as I do. {wink} #nerdprobs

Yes, I dumped facebook, but instagram is my BFF so I found this hilarious. (If you’re reading in email or feed reader, you may have to click over to the blog to see this video):

On the homeschool front, all of our enrichment classes are on break until January and with the holiday upheaval of our regular schedule, we’ll still keep up the basics but it will all stay very low key until after the first of the year.

I’m getting things ready for Truth in the Tinsel ahead of time this year. I highly recommend this resource for Advent; the kids love it and have already been talking about doing it again this year. The ebook includes 24 days of Scripture reading, ornament crafts, talking points, and additional activities.

Favorite little thing this week: the heated seats in my Volvo. I feel downright pampered (and warm!) every time my rear settles into those toasty seats! {Can I recreate that in my living room?}

Next week is Thanksgiving! How did that happen!?! The older I get, the faster time flies. We’re still working through how we celebrate around here with all the family changes in the past couple of years, so I’d love to know: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
