My "bookmarked links" section is already overflowing and I need a place to store some of the interesting stuff I'm reading or contemplating. My friend, Nettacow, does these link round-ups every week and I just love digging through her findings. I don't expect blog world to revel in my findings, but I'll document them, nonetheless:
Photo Bridge 3000 photos scanned at 600dpi for only $79! While digging through our mountain of memorabilia, we've come up with thousands of non-digital shots. We're really considering doing this!
Lovely Handspun Yarn My friend Maya, a blogger from Springtree Road, started selling HANDSPUN yarn on Etsy. And OH MY it's so lovely. I've been salivating over every new pattern she creates and finally purchased some of her Red Delicious about 10 days ago. It's so soft and gushy. Mmmmm. I'll be starting on my fun crochet project in two weeks. YAY! If you knit or crochet, please check it out and pass on her info to any other friends who wanna get in on some of this yummy stuff! ETA: Guess what, I just looked again and Maya is doing a giveaway of one of her skeins of handspun yarn. So go to Maya's blog right now to find out how to win!!!!
A Robert Brault Reader ~ I'm very attached to this blog. My Sunday Citar on the 12th was a quote from this guy. Every time I think all the original quotes have been thought up, he posts again. Just lovely.
Income-Based Repayment Program ~ Have hefty student loan debt, but live on a very modest salary? Have your payments been stretched out over 35 years? This very new (like as of July 2009) program may be just the solution for you.
Blessings & Responsibility After contacting the foster system here in our area a time or two and getting absolutely no response whatsoever, this post really made us start looking at international adoption. We may technically be a low-income family in America, but we live like royalty compared to about 90% of the world. Now if we could only come up with the cash to get all the legal paperwork done. :big sigh:
Surprised there are no birth or breastfeeding links, today? Ah, the month's not over. :wink:

I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
