The weekly “little of this, little of that” feature here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
(This will all look and work better if you click on the actual post and do not remain on the main page.)
Yesterday I had a migraine, and because it started out as a little nausea, I was pretty worried that I was getting the flu. So although I spent the day sacked out on the sofa, I’m grateful it was a headache and not the flu!
But it means that not much got done…
I am getting a pull towards the sewing machine, which is in there…
The days are getting a wee bit longer, so even though it’s still cold, we are at least thinking about getting up and moving around — no rush though!
I have been knitting. I like this Syncopation pattern (even though I lose concentration and it isn’t perfect, but when you do two socks at a time, it’s okay — the extra row you put in one gets put in the other as well!). And it’s free!
I hope you have coziness and stirring thoughts of creativity where you are!
Here are some links!
- There really are just two words for tea in the whole world — variations on tea and chai. And here’s why.
- News flash! New sin discovered! Fr. Schall, wise as always, on the besetting sin of our age, and why it is new — or at least not what we are used to thinking of when we think of sin.
- I don’t know if your family is like ours, but we end up talking about bitcoin quite a lot. The “bitcoin moment” here, now firmly taking its place in family lore, is the Thanksgiving that our Joseph, as he was lifting his first bite of turkey-stuffing-and-gravy to his eager lips, was asked the question, “What is bitcoin anyway?” — and ended up with a cold untouched plate while the rest of us listened and ate, poor fellow! Well, here he is with a helpful primer and view of how the government is or is not dealing with it.
- And here is a long but actually very informative article about the technology of bitcoin and how blockchain, maybe even more than bitcoin (and other cryptocurrency) itself, will change how information is used in society. Most importantly, the essay addresses the issue of the role of the government in how we connect with each other.
