The weekly “little of this, little of that” feature here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
We’re coming to the end of this little sojourn with Rosie and the grandchildren. I’d wax emotional but the effort to move them out requires all my energy (I mean, Rosie is doing all the work but you know — mental energy isn’t for nothing!) — I’ll be driving down with her and helping her get settled back on base, so no time for sentiment! I’m trying to put together some links here and not think too much about all the things I’d like to post about but probably won’t, not for a while yet.
- An ambitious and tremendous project: collecting all of Bach in one place. Poke around and see what you can find.
- Anthony Esolen, trying to awaken in us the desire to give the gift of innocent love to our children.
- Super long but thought-provoking read from Fr. Schall (including, at the end, a little nod to our man Romano Guardini): “Mysticism, political philosophy, and play serve to relate the transcendent to the human through the setting of the cosmos in which we find ourselves.”
From the archives:
- That time I told you about how nearly everything in my house is thrifted, given to me, or literally found on the side of the road, in case you were wondering about that photo, above. It was by way of saying that yes, you can live on one income, because every household needs a manager (among other roles, some of which may be even more important) as well as an earner!
- Here’s how I do my veggies for the freezer. Right now I have lots of cucumbers and I have to leave! Those won’t freeze! Yikes, what should I do?!?
