The weekly “little of this, little of that” feature here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
~~ Sorry, the image uploader is throwing a fit right now, so I don’t have any fun visual for you at the moment! :( I’ll try to come back to this later today and show you the pretty pictures I was going to share. ~~
- Folks in and about Washington, IL, Auntie Leila will be with you today! She left early this morning to kick off some midwest travels. Check out the Speaking page for her schedule to keep up on where she is, because if she’s near you she’d love to meet you!
- Richard Dawkins is invited to dinner at the home of a family with two children who have Down syndrome; a lovely reflection on the meaning of life.
- In the same vein as the airstream/caravan “small living” idea, behold a tiny, mobile, designer kitchen within a shepherd’s hut. Auntie Leila wonders whether there are other moms of big families who have a special secret desire for something like this…?
- For you Anne of Green Gables enthusiasts: a NYTimes piece about traveling to Prince Edwards Island as an L.M. Montgomery fan, including some tips and how-tos!
- Here’s a podcast of an interview between Archbishop Neumann of Kansas City and David Clayton regarding The Little Oratory!
- Yesterday evening, a friend recommended that I check out Maude White, a highly skilled artist whose work is whimsical, beautiful, and incredibly delicate. Work like this, in an unusual medium, always makes me want to adopt a new project (a dangerous thing…)!
Some historical fun:
- Medieval DIY: 5 Easy Projects. This was suggested by a friend of mine in the midst of an online conversation bewailing the disrespect the Medieval period so frequently receives from academics.
A few entertaining videos:
- Putting aside specific parenting practices (not to mention breakfast food choices), I thoroughly enjoyed this clever ad from Cheerios, #howtodad. It’s awesome.
- How fun is this: a video of the kind of fun that happens at the wedding reception of Riverdance-level Irish step dancers!
Today in the Catholic year: it’s the memorial of St. Rose of Lima!
