Weekend Things

>> Saturday, August 10, 2013

This week has been rough for a silly reason. I drank so many of my calories while on vacation -- smoothies, juices, sodas, kombuchas, beers, and canned champagnes -- and it's been an adjustment to just water again. Well, and now I'm thinking of starting a small coffee habit since I want to start waking up early. Should I resist? I've never been much for caffeine. But I'm wondering if it might help kick-start my days.

Coffee-drinkers and abstainers: Please weigh in on the pros and cons!

I've never been into manicures, skin care routines, lotions, etc.
But I'm going to start dry brushing -- I bought this body brush last night.
I'll report back. Here's more about the idea behind it + a brief how-to.

// Can - Can //
This year, I really want to learn to can all those CSA goodies.
I love these heritage collection Ball Jars with a vintage feel.
But beyond pretty things, I need to pick up a basic canning kit.

And here's what you may have missed this week on Writing Chapter Three:

  • Early to Rise -- the conclusion I (hesitantly) came to about waking up early + why I need to start NOW.
  • Caught In-Between -- being a work-at-home mom has its own challenges and worries. Here are some of mine.

  • Safer Blogging -- blogging, especially mommy blogging, can leave writers vulnerable. Here's some tips for how I protect myself and my family.

Have a great weekend!
