From My Domestic Clippings

Well probably a lot of you already noticed this Snap thingy I added last week. I found another blogger using it and I really liked it. I also added the script from Amazon that gives info about books and such when you pass the mouse over it. I love having info right at my fingertips!

The Trivium Academy
has updated their musical education plan. I find it to be very inspiring and want to implement something like it myself. When I was a little girl, my mother insisted on always always always listening to classical music and frankly, I hated it. However as I progressed in my flute studies, I ended up playing a lot of classical music. It turned out to be beneficial that I knew how classical music should sound and I had quite a successful career as a high school musician! Now I really love classical music, but it took me a while to get there. I made up my mind when I was raising my own children then, that I would expose them to all sorts of music, classical, rock, country, jazz, folk etc. I am happy to report then that my oldest, almost-a-man child does like a pretty decent variety of music and even has enough taste to know which popular music has merit and which is just "crap." So, I did something right but I'd like to do better with the rest!

So many Catholic podcasts, so little time! But these look great from K-Street Catholic. HT Jeff Miller.

You may have noticed that I am a Tupperware affiliate. Of all the links I tried, that was one of the most successful! I use Tupperware too! (doesn't everyone?) Anyway, Meredith at Like Merchant Ships had a round up of Tupperware in her archives that are well worth the read. Meredith also introduced me to the Tupper Diva. I could happily get lost over there in all that Tupperware.

In the spirit of Lenten penance and humility I offer this confession: I suck at laundry. My sister is the queen of laundry. Her laundry room is the epitome of what a laundry room should be. A good friend of mine separates her loads into colors, fabric, alphabetically, and any other way it can be separated and then line dries most of it! I just can't deal with all of that. Now in my defense, I rocked at laundry when there were only two of us. I did pretty good until there were four of us. Then the laundry won and I've been behind ever since, for oh... the last eleven years or so. But I find hope and solace for my affliction in places like this!

Too many children? Nah... just too much laundry. This mom of 14 explains it beautifully.

Melissa Wiley gives us the heads up on Chesterton for children books, coming soon. Sometimes the best way for adults to learn something new or catch up on something quickly, is to read a child's version. That is how I taught myself the bare bones of salvation history- I read the Children's Bible! Anyway I've been meaning to read Chesterton myself, this looks like it would be a good way to start.

Tricia at Blogging Away Debt has good info on how to even get started!!

Well it's end of the month and I have a LOT of typing to do if I want to be able to bill it before midnight, so enjoy the links! I leave you with the delightful Sister Mary Martha on... hats!
