Random Graces

One of my very favorite types of posts to read are the "interesting links" types posts. It's fun to read what my favorite bloggers are reading, and I almost find something really interesting. So I decided to start my own. I don't think this will be a weekly thing, maybe every other week, but we're going to call it "Random Graces" and it'll be full of little moments that I'd like to share and links to articles that I've found fun or interesting.

Moments from Our House

Just for giggles, when a baby gets something stuck to her little fat foot:

Or decides to sit in a bucket:

Weird egg that sent me inside to do some research:

Turns out I couldn't find anything even remotely like this, so I'm going to throw it back out to the chickens and let it ride. Probably just a fluke. Maybe the pullets are starting to lay, or one of the older hens was having an off day.

I'm a pretty varied reader when it comes to web pages and articles, as you will see.

This podcast was awesome, I sat and listened and giggled and nodded, and would have joined in on the conversation if I could have. Cubicle Life to Farm Life with Haley Stewart (I also love Yoga with Adrienne, in case you need some free yoga in your life.)

Which led me to Haley's blog, Carrots for Michaelmas, in which I promptly started stalking following her. She's got a whole slew of posts about Harry Potter, another reason to follow her, and here's one of my new favorites: Why Voldemort Hates Homeschooling

This from Weed 'Em and Reap made me want to promptly go out and test the goats' blood. We're going to work on that next week. Goat Diseases: Signs, Symptoms, and Testing From Home

And on a random Google search hoping to find a magical cure for a cavity I've had for more than a year now, I found this blog: Whole Health Source. He very scientifically looks at real foods, and because of this post, I started taking vitamins A and D. Reversing Tooth Decay

And last but not least, if you haven't found the Cheerio Trail, you need to go meet Christy. She is the sweetest, most honest soul. Her latest post is a great place to start, but there are many, many rich posts you should also check out. Growing Contentment in a Garden Full of Want

Ok, I have so much more I could share, but I'm going to save them for the next one. I hope you find something you enjoy!

PS Jeremy's got a week off this week and here's a hint about what we're going to be doing:

Can you guess? I can't wait! What are you going to do this week?


  1. Thanks for the links to check out. I will probably start ordering seeds soon. Lately I've been thinking about my garden this summer and what to plant.

    1. I was so excited a week or so ago to get my hands in the dirt again. It is definitely time to think and plan our gardens.

  2. Such adorable pictures! :) I love this idea for a post! I'll be back to see what other Random Graces you have to share :)

    1. Thanks Bree, I really think she is adorable too!

  3. Your little girl is precious!! I just listened to the podcast with Haley and it's so interesting to hear about the changes she and her family have made in their lives.

    1. It was so fun, wasn't it? I really like Haley now.

  4. Thanks for sharing with Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop!
