Good good links #147

Hi there, Sunday! You sneak up on me every week, huh?

Luckily, I am prepared better than some other weeks in sharing some of my favourite posts found in the past seven days with you. Maybe it’s just my perception but June has seemed like quite a fruitful month in terms of good, especially thought-provoking posts. In fact, I read more but lost my nptes – learn from my mistake and don’t keep track via pen-to-paper notes – so might share those in a future round-up.

On a more unfortunate note the internet seems to hate me as I haven’t been able to comment on other blogs with the scarce few exceptions. So if it seems like I didn’t stop by your blog: I might just have and even tried to comment but it didn’t get through.

Happy Sunday!

    I adored that post from Erin’s Inside Job! Really insightful!
    How about just do the dance party for 8 minutes and skip the rest? That sounds like an awesome 8-minute workout to me. (I probably should do core more, actually. :S
    Grocery shopping in Germany! It’s hard enough when they tell you how much you owe and you have to swap the numbers. “Sechsunddreizig…sixty-three…no! thirty-six.”

      Dance party only – I like the way you think ;). I’d definitely nix at least the burpees there, too.
      I wonder how I’d feel shopping in the US. Would I get looked at for bringing my own bags? One thing I’d appreciate is getting more times to pack up my groceries. Don’t ask how many times I’ve felt bad for not being finished yet after paying.

    Your comments aren’t woking and I never get ping backs… gah the internet!! Good thing its part of my routine on Sundays to check out your posts – thank you for including my recipe! Looking forward to reading these. Hope you are having a lovely weekend m’dear.

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      Ah, yes, I saw you said that in the BBG group. The no commenting thing is driving me mad because I can’t figure it out. I “commented” [or not] on your recipe post, too. The miso magic once again.
