7 Quick Takes Friday
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m over at MothersClick today with a previous post about creating quality time with my daughter. I’m also at WomensLifeLink with an interview. Stop by and say hi if you get a chance!
It’s summer and it’s hot. If you like ice cream, this is the perfect time for it. One of my blogging friends, Kristen at We Are THAT Family, is having a giveaway you’ll want to check out. Stop by her blog, enter, and hopefully cool off! Kristen is also starting her own newsletter, which I’m sure will be filled with the same wisdom and humor that her blog posts are. If you’re interested in subscribing (I just did), click here. You’ll love her perspective and her writing.
I don’ t know about you, but I love decorating. There’s something about new pillows, new curtains, or a vase of fresh flowers on the table that just-feels-good. If you’re the same way, stop by Carrie’s blog, Buzzings of a Queen Bee. She’s one of those creative people that somehow finds time for some amazing projects, like the new curtains she sewed this week (that I absolutely love).
For those of you who have blogs, there’s a new, “make your blog better” resource out there. Brent Riggs (MckLinky creator) has started a blog where he’ll be posting about all things bloggy. Head on over there and subscribe. He has a wealth of professional and technical knowledge. Stop by his family blog too and send prayers for his daughter Abby, who is battling leukemia.
Another great resource, this time for writers, is Jessica’s blog, BookingIt. Jessica posts about great writing-related topics, such as point of view and creating likeable characters. And she always poses interesting questions. Click on over there and have a read.
Since I’ve been in mommy crack-down mode lately, I’ve been trying to remember, along with discipline, to give my kids plenty of praise. I saw this quote and thought I’d share: “Give praise when they least expect it…not just when they are asking for it.” –Anonymous Good to keep in mind. :)
