Good good links #105

It’s been a good day! Don’t you find that writing posts is [often] much easier when you’re in a good mood? Unless your head is so full of ideas you can’t narrow it down to just one to write about. Admittedly, I have a slight case of that right now, too, and am a little sleepy  … don’t ask me where I’m getting here … Then again today’s a day of little talk on my part in anyway so I’ll stop it right here and let you go off to enjoy the links below.

Happy [and hopefully sunny] Sunday!

      Thank you for letting me know, Kate! Today’s been a little ‘meh’ so far and your comment made me smile. I prefer link collection posts where the author says why they picked a certain article and I’m a wordy person so always need to add a sentence or two ;).

    I hope I am not “Taking it for granite” that people don’t actually say that…
    And I am super intrigued by nut and yeast free cheeze sauce!
