First thing I love today, Friday: Titling this entry “Things I Love Friday,” which makes me sound like I might be organized or have structure or a plan for my blog or something.
Second thing I love today, Friday. OhMahFreakinGee, I found the best urban homesteading blog. Ever. Okay, I know I told you to sign up for my blog through email (and it’s not too late, it’s there in the sidebar, seriously, do it!) but today, Friday, I’m telling you, GO SIGN UP FOR THIS WOMAN’S BLOG. First, read her about everything page. Bad Mama Genny rocks. How hard does she rock? Well, maybe it’s just the mood I’m in this morning? But she describes it as:
Like a mommy blog. Except I’m not a mommy. And it’s about extreme DIY and homesteading. And food, food, food. And gardening in fishnets. And moonshine makin’. And the fine mess I’ve gotten us into this time. So not at all like a mommy blog. Ok, you know what, just read the damn blog.
She had me at fishnets and misfits and green hair and– just read the damn blog.
Third thing I love today, Friday. Persephone Books in London. Okay, I’m not at all certain I would love the books themselves because they are all dove grey. I am not a grey woman. [Can I get more shallow than that? I’m sure I can. But a row of dove grey books does not inspire me as a build my library.] However, they really do look cool. And here is the best thing about them ever (besides the fact that they are published in England and we all know how I feel about that):
“Persephone Books reprints neglected classics by C20th (mostly women) writers. Each one in our collection of 96 books is intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written, and most are ideal presents or a good choice for reading groups. Persephone prints mainly neglected fiction and non-fiction by women, for women and about women. The titles are chosen to appeal to busy women who rarely have time to spend in ever-larger bookshops and who would like to have access to a list of books designed to be neither too literary nor too commercial. The books are guaranteed to be readable, thought-provoking and impossible to forget. We sell mainly through mail order, through selected shops and we have our own shop.” But they also have beautiful fabric endpapers and bookmarks; each title has its own design. They sound lovely, with so much attention to detail. I may have to buy one, just to see. Amazon.com has the Persephone Classics in paperback but if I decide I want one, I may bite the bullet and get hardcover.
Fourth thing I love today, Friday. The webcams at Sennen Cove. Anytime I want, I can look and see what the weather and the sea looked like today at that place I’d love to be. Sometimes the images can be pretty darned amazing.
Of course I love dogs everyday, all day and all night.
I just love dogs.
What do you love today, Friday?
