Suggestion Saturday: October 1, 2016

saturday-blogs-photoHere is this week’s list of comic strips, essays, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Clean Room, Clean Mind. I’ve never done this, but now I want to start. The last panel was my biggest reason for wanting to give this a try.

Free Spirits and Happiness via LisaShambrook. The Swedish tale the author talks about was my favourite part of this post. I’d never heard it before, but it was a good one. The picture above reminds me of this link a little for reasons I can’t fully explain.

Make America Bake Again. Baking is actually one of the ways I’m planning to spend my time this upcoming winter. It’s nice to see that other people are interested in it as well.

How I Found Joy in Negativity via SarahBrentyn‬. What a fantastic and refreshing post.

When I was 16. Who someone is when they’re a teenager isn’t always the same kind of person they are years later. I’m willing to admit that my opinions and ideas have changed a lot since I since graduated from high school. Is anyone else willing to admit the same?

From What A Black Woman Wishes Her Adoptive White Parents Knew:

This is my adoptive family, my kin. A loud, passionate, stubborn mixture of people who don’t look anything alike.

From A Plea for Poetry via guineapig66:

I write this both as a poet and as a lover of poetry. Give it a chance. No one demands any more that you learn a long poem, stanza by stanza, threatening detention or a rap on the knuckles if you fail. You have the option to choose what to read, what to enjoy.

What have you been reading?

  1. If it’s baking you’re after,

    Good & seasonally appropriate. There must be gluten-free, vegan, or otherwise friendly recipes for those who need them. I can’t move for apples from my own trees and wild trees, not all of them nice to eat on their own but all edible with enough sugar.

    The satisfaction is more because they come from my own & otherwise sourced ingredients, because I did the baking rather than spend more and not know what’s in it, and of course it’s always better shared.

    (I have mine with a cup of drinking chocolate!)

  2. No, I’ve only got a couple of trees 🙁

    I do enjoy a good alcoholic cider though! (Preferably not drunk during baking, or else my polenta cake might turn out “interesting” but not very nice).
