Weekending Reads

Filed under: Linkity — Kristi at 12:19 pm on Sunday, March 17, 2013

Wow, did this last week throw me for a loop! Daylight Savings Time. Hardly any snow when we were to have a blizzard followed by a half way decent snow when we weren’t to have any precipitation. 30 degrees days followed by 70 degree days. A 13 minute workout that render me unable to gracefully sit down or get back up for three days. Another wildfire barely outside of town - in March, when the usual resources are not available for fighting it.

To top it off, the future demise of Google Reader. Gah!!! I’m currently testing out Bloglovin’ and Feedly. Right now, I think Feedly is winning because it kept all my organization from GoogleReader and on Bloglovin I have one hot, huge mess. But I know I’m seeing many of you saying you are going the direction of Bloglovin’ so I’m trying to keep an open mind. That said, my preferred iOS app for blog reading, ByLine, is likely changing their back end to Feedly it sounds like. So even if I don’t love the Feedly iOS app I could continue to use the app I already paid for and like. If that is where you are at, follow my blog with Bloglovin.

Weekend Reading

While I didn’t get a reading post up on Thursday, I did manage to get a fair bit of reading accomplished this week and will likely up date you on those this week. I also went a little hog wild at the library and may end up with book ADD for the next little while. Whoops!

If it weren’t so late in the season and I wasn’t determine to turn DH’s 10 weeks away this summer into my own personal Biggest Looser intensive I’d love to make myself the Purl Bee’s Knit Sweatshirt. Doesn’t it look so comfy and cozy and easy to live in? Plus, I’ve never knit a kangaroo pocket yet! I love projects where I learn something new :-)

I’m thinking about trying this “Ultimate Viniagrette” with kombucha in place of the vinegar and sugar.

I’d like to give this curried tofu a try with some of the fancy pants curry spices mom and dad gave us for Christmas.

If I stop putting all our bananas in smoothies I might have to try these soft peanut butter banana oat bars a try for a relatively healthy treat.

I’m wondering if I have any more of my really large tees left to turn into this no sew vest refashion.

I really wish I had the sewing and drafting skills to grade this gorgeous dress to my size and sew it. I know it would flatter my figure very well.

I definitely need to take time to follow some of the links in this post on natural cleaners you can make yourself. I know a little bit, but not enough.

Okay, that’s enough linkity for now. Check out Chris if you want more links to swallow up some time! ;-)

I’m annoyed about the demise of Reader. I’ve been trying Feedly but will miss the search capability. I use Flipbook on the ipad sometimes.

I would also like to try some natural cleaners. I’m going to try a bicarb paste (bicarb mixed with a little water) on my oven as it was recommended.

I do love that Purl sweatshirt…but I feel like I’d need to do something different with the neckline…

Thanks for the mention! Ah, Bloglovin’, like Reeder, seems to only have an iOS app, so not for me. I actually like Feedly’s Android app better than the web version, which is good. :)

@mrspao: I’m confused, because it seems like Feedly does have search capability… ??
