This year is racing by. It's already the end of June! I hope you have a lovely weekend. See you again next week.


  1. I am going to visit every blog you have linked to. So I can be one of the thousands of unexpected visitors they receive.

  2. Thanks Rhonda, what an exciting surprise to see that you have linked my blog crafty and Frugal :)

  3. Thanks for the link Rhonda! I love your weekend reading posts, they keep me entertained for the whole weekend. And this weekend I'll be getting lots of visitors to my blog too! what a perfect way to spend a chilly mid winter weekend.

  4. Hi Rhonda,
    Thanks for these links, I shall go and check some of them out. On my reading list this weekend is your Book :) I managed to chase down a copy in our Dymocks store up in Auckland, so when we took the boys up for some birthday fun during the week, I made my husband make a detour to pick it up. You should have seen me grinning away and I couldn't help but flick through the pages and rub the cover! LOL. Matt was laughing at me and said it was the most excited he has seen me in a long time...all at the thought of finally being able to read your book! So this weekend we have decided to just have a quiet weekend in, Matt is traveling back and forth every week to Melbourne so I'm looking forward to some time not rushing around with the four of us just hanging out. I imagine as I devour your book in front of the fire, Matt will work away and the boys will play with some new birthday gifts :) Ahhh bliss :) We have somewhat lost a slight hold of our 'simple life' recently with Matt's job change and all his traveling. I am slowly regaining bit by bit our simple life we all so enjoy here, and I just know that your book will be the perfect inspiration. Right off to pick up the boys from school and I think I may go and dust off my blog later :)

    Wishing you a lovely relaxing and enjoyable weekend Rhonda, Regards, Ruth x

  5. Oh my goodness what a pleasant surprise to see my blog mentioned here. Thank you so much Rhonda for posting a link to Prairie Harmony you are so very kind. I look forward to meeting everyone who wishes to stop by :)


  6. Thank you for these weekend reading ideas Rhonda. I'll be checking them out. Have a lovely weekend. xxoo

  7. Hi Rhonda, thanks for the links.... I made soap last week... yay... it seems to have worked.... thanks for the recipe... if you have a chance pop in for a peek and see mine!

  8. Hi Rhonda,
    thank you very much for the links. I really enjoyed them.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. Thanks for the links, Rhonda.
    May your weekend be full of peace & rest.
    I appreciate you!

  10. I see that you have found that gem of free publications from UK! I'd like to mention that UK helps many of our small vegetable farmers in the area and in the past allocated land for gardens for the people of Lexington for a fee of $20 a plot. It makes me proud to be a Kentuckian to see this!

    There is a wealth of information for the beginning gardener in this publication that is transferable to any area of the world.

  11. There is a lovely little review of your book in The Sunday Mail U mag this weekend.

  12. Thank you for posting links to other blogs - I have an enjoyable time visiting them all and always find something of interest - and my blog list is growing!!!

  13. Thanks for the link to the interview with Dr. Chilton. I'm expecting baby 2 and always after new ideas. He made some great points for new parents and grandparents.

    I will be making sure those around me know that I need to be mothered so I can mother my baby and beautiful little girl.


  14. Angela, it was very interesting, wasn't it. Yes, take care of yourself and good luck with the birth. ((Hugs))

  15. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post
    was good. I don't know who you are but definitely you're going to a famous blogger if you are
    not already ;) Cheers!
