Weekend reading

19 April 2008
I am ever grateful that I have so many returning readers, the number grows every week. It's amazing. In the interests of sharing, I've come up with a number of blogs you may not have discovered yet but I think are worth checking out. It's the weekend, get yourself a cup of tea and relax for a while. And me? I'm going out to the garden.

  1. Rhonda, thanks so much for mentioning my give-away.

  2. Hi Rhonda!

    Thank you so much for listing InterNational Downshifting Week and I know your readers will connect with much of great advice that you give out on your Down To Earth blog!

    Wishing you well, have a great weekend,

    Tracey x
    Founder of Interational Downshifting Week

  3. Rhonda, thanks so much for the birthday wishes, and for mentioning my blog! Happy weekend, Diana x

  4. Thank you, Rhonda! Your blog is a daily stop for both my husband and myself. In fact, he'll just start a sentence with "guess what Rhonda said on her blog today...?" and such. Thank you for sharing your insights and daily happenings; we're the better for them!

  5. Thanks for the reading list. We have been packing and sorting like mad. Two weeks until we move. I gave myself permission today to spend a few extra minutes at the computer perusing some of the blogs you recommended.

    I am so thankful for all the 'stores' of food we have had. I've hardly had to go to the grocery store at all over the past few months as we are eating up what we have stored.

    Then when we move, we get to start stocking up all over again. And building a bigger, better garden!

  6. You are too sweet!

    I'm sorry I haven't dropped in the last few days. We've been attending adoption meetings. We're so excited, Rhonda!

    Originally, I had gone through all the classes by myself (while the husband was in Iraq). Now my husband can go too. We can't wait!

    I just love your blog... sigh. You know that you are my blogging hero! without fail, I arrive at your blog and within just a few lines, the stress and strain of daily life washes away. Your peaceful prose is so soothing.

    Blessings and thanks!
