Weekend links


And we’re back in full swing to weekly podcasting—this past week I cohosted with Emily Freeman. Fold your laundry and listen up!

    Great links Tsh – the ’14 words’ one is fantastic. Very timely quote too – I have been waiting to get inspired to take action (and it’s not working) – better start taking action! Thanks, Suzie

  2. I enjoyed the article about playground etiquette and helping kids. This has been on my mind lately and I agree with the author that a bit of grit and frustration is good for kids.

  3. i like hints of future passions

  4. Love the 14 words link. I always shoot for “Lagom” but wind up feeling all “Shemomedjamo”!

  5. Can you share more about how your family is juicing Tsh? I’m curious to know how it works in a family setting with littles and a busy schedule.

  6. Very sad I cannot get to any of the downloads. I’ve bought the book “Organized Simplicity” and am trying to use the materials here but can’t get to anything. Very disappointed.
