The Importance of Planning and Some Links for Your Weekend


Lately I have been slacking when it comes to setting aside specific blocks of time for planning and writing blog posts, and this week it really showed, with only two posts on Monday and Tuesday. Well, rest assured good readers, I spent two hours this morning planning and writing for February! Some good stuff coming your way, including a series on cultivating close-knit marriage, tips for enduring bed rest, and more book reviews as I attempt my "big audacious goal" (thank you Crystal Paine for this brilliant term!) of reading six books a month. Please stay tuned :).

In the meantime, here are a few good links to help you get maximum enjoyment from your weekend. Enjoy!

A delicious weekend breakfast- Again, thank you Crystal Paine. As I type my tasty cinnamon rolls are baking, teasing me with their incredible smell...

Speed read like Teddy Roosevelt- The Art of Manliness is a brilliant website put together by a husband and wife team, encouraging men to step it up in all areas, from being better husbands and fathers to winter-proofing homes and doing better in school. My husband loves it, and even though I'm a woman I've benefited a ton from their materials. This article was very interesting and inspiring!

Why Ron Paul?- Okay, maybe I shouldn't post about politics, but I very much enjoyed reading Pastor Voddie Baucham's reasoning behind his support of Ron Paul. You can take it or leave it ;).

Happy weekend! My favorite part of the week :).

  1. Wow! We are SO on the same wavelength! I have been planning to plan (but haven't officially planned yet) a basic outline/schedule for the rest of the year's posts, PLUS I've been wanting to make cinnamon rolls lately! (Thanks!) And also, Michael told me to read Vodie Bauchman's defense of RP also (which is still on the to-do list...)! AND I've been planning to do a marriage post (but not series--don't have much material yet!)And the rest of the info looks very helpful. Thanks for the links, and I enjoyed reading, as always! :)
