Good good links #144

In the summertime when the weather is high
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine …

… it’s difficult to convince anybody to sit down and catch up on blogs. Honestly, the last thing you’re going to do on a hot and sunny day is plop down in front of your laptop and aimlessly browse the web, right? Well, luckily, I picked some posts worthy your time [overestimation of my capab8ilties much ;)?!]. Kidding. Go and catch some sunrays and maybe save some of these reads for later. There have once again been really good ones these past days.

Sunny or gray: Enjoy your Sunday!

Spot on for me right now and even if you don’t ever think “I’ll be happy when …” you might be able to take something away from it.



Good good [advice, inspiration and other insightful reads]

Everybody’s using the big ‘M’ word but does a standard definition even exist?

It’s been said before but bears repeating.

Good good [food]

No jackfruit in these but … mighty mushrooms! I’d be so intrigued to try these if oyster mushrooms were available.

    I’m really glad my post resonated with you – especially since I felt like I really wasn’t able to form my thoughts clearly this time and was rather “all over the place” without one concrete message. I’m still not positive on the exact message was trying to convey, but hey, that’s thinning out loud I guess?
    I’ve been feeling like I have so much less time than usual to keep up to date on my blog reading/commenting/responding (not to mention energy – falling asleep at 9 and all), so your sunday posts are an extra help to keep me in the loop. Thanks doll. I hope you are doing okay and have had a nice week? ❤

    I hope you had a loveeeely weekend! I am so glad you had some sunshine after all that rain. I just woke up and it is POURING with rain once again in Sydney – of course on the day I have a fancy meeting in the city and have to venture all the way there by foot and train 😛 Disaster waiting to happen, I say!

    Thank you for including my link!
