Weekend reading

20 December 2013
Take care of yourself over the holidays and stay safe. I want to see you back here next year. Merry Christmas everyone. I'll see you soon.  

Bella is a magazine for teenage girls. Here is a free sample of the online magazine. I think you'll agree that the images and ideas presented there are age-appropriate, endearing and very different to the sadly sexualised photographs and topics often in magazines for young girls. A subscription or one Bella mag would make an excellent Christmas gift for the young girls in your life. It's available in a print and online version so international readers can take advantage of the message and images of ordinary girls doing wonderful things. I'll be writing in Bella from the next edition.
Craftfoxes - I wanted to show you the little free fox hat pattern but there are so many gorgeous projects here I hope you check out the entire site.

  1. How interesting about the hand-washing!

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas too, Rhonda & see you next year!

  3. Oh wow, thank you for featuring my little blog. :-) Merry Christmas to you and Frohe Weihnachten!

  4. Lots of good reading there, Rhonda. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Hi Rhonda, there may be an issue with the link for the Chicken coops, it seems to link to the hand washing article... or maybe it's just me :)
    Have a wonderful Christmas

  6. Wonderful film about the fox; they are my favourite animals. One of the links brings us a warning though. Don't go there!

  7. I've tried a couple times to access the "eight awesome chicken coops" link and it keeps taking me to the same page as the hand-washing in cold water link. Would it be possible for you to re-post that link.

  8. Have a peaceful vacation with your family! I look forward to reading here again, soon.

  9. Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
    have any problem you need to solve? A pending
    court case you want to resolve in your favor?
    Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
    the world of miracles and wonders, there are
    supernatural treasure and power to liberate
    mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
    life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
    and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
    with the one you love and desire or why cant the
    one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
    love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
    solution or cure to your problems? Why would
    your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
    case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
    anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
    back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
    your place of work? You want to venture into
    politics? Now I understand certain things are
    hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask

    instructions and use the items you will receive, I

    advantage of the powerful nature of our items
    for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
    business with you please be advised. May
    angels guide you. All inquiries should be
    directed to the Priest Abija email below Email:

  10. What a wonderful set of links this week Rhonda, thank you! Bella magazine looks awesome, I'll go back when I have a bit more time, it's wonderful to see the magazine showing lovely natural normal weight young girls and covering the topics they will enjoy.

  11. Happy Holidays to you Rhonda, Hanno and your families. I am looking forward to reading your blog again in 2014.

  12. Merry Christmas Rhonda, and every blessing in 2014! xxx

  13. Have a wonderful Christmas break Rhonda and Hanno and thank you both for all the inspiration you have given me.

  14. This is very effective information to all people. I really glad to read the information from this blog.Clipping Path

  15. Thank you for your blog. I've been a homemaker for 22 years. Now my youngest is in high school, and I pondered my role from August until November. Then I decided to continue to be a homemaker. I would love to say I don't care what people think, and while that's partially true, I also need support. After all, we are all cultural creatures. It's great to read this blog and nod my head in agreement! I could work as a teacher or a computer programmer, but what a loss that would be for my husband and my home. I love your ideas about homemakers pacing themselves. God bless. -- Linda
