Weekend reading

Going to see The Good Dinosaur at the movies with Opa.

This won't be a regular feature this year because I'm not reading online as much as I used to, I've gone back to books.  However, when I have enough links stored, I'll post them and hope you enjoy the read.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. ♥︎

  1. Hi Rhonda,
    I came across this on Pinterest:
    and thought of you.
    Have a great weekend.
    Trinidad and Tobago

  2. You too, Rhonda! I love the links, will enjoy them whenever they appear.

  3. Oh, I liked The Busker video. I used to live in Tucson, being one of those annoying people who has lived ALL OVER the U.S. He can certainly play that banjo. I can tell it's winter in Tucson - people's shorts are longer. *smile*

  4. I always enjoy looking at your weekend reading list. This time the article on recycling / less stuff really struck a cord with me. And as one who hopes to retire in the next couple of years, the article on retirees and frugal living has special meaning. We have lived frugally for all of our married life, and have saved and saved. Now I feel is the time to travel, before we can't. Hubby wants to keep working till he can't. It's a discussion that goes on and on. We'll see where it takes us!

  5. Some really great reads here. Thanks for sharing

  6. Hi Rhonda, color me thrilled!! I just received notice that my book, DOWN TO EARTH A SIMPLE GUIDE, is shipping on 29 Jan from Amazon. It has been on back order for months, here in the USA. I have never lost hope, boy am I excited! Thank you for writing this book...can't wait to order the next one! Keep up the really great work, we love you all over the world. I am nearly ready to retire and STILL need your kind words and gentle prods. Have a really great day Rhonda!! Thank you just doesn't seem to cover my happiness for my new obsession.

    1. That's great! I hope you enjoy it. I just checked Amazon and it's in stock again after three months of nothing. Let me know what you think of it when you finish reading. xx

  7. Thanks for sharing the links Rhonda. The Japanese embroidery is so beautiful.

  8. Hi Rhonda, I followed up with Yumiko's embroidery. It was very interesting. Thanks for that and the other links as well. While you are enjoying heat, we are under a blanket of snow and icy temperatures. Though I must say my walk with the dogs today was invigorating. Our wonderful planet...
