Friday Favorites – October 6, 2017 Roundup

Remember how a couple of weeks ago I talked about the leaves changing early? Well, apparently we’re done with that.  We had a long stretch of days in the 80’s and 90’s.  I guess that slowed things down, so now we’re on track.

Aw, Nuts!

Now all we have to deal with is walnuts.  Lots of them.  We have several mature walnut trees and this is a bumper crop, apparently.  I’ve noticed that the number of nuts varies by year.  This is probably the most I’ve ever seen.  So much that I’ve had fantasies of chopping them all down.  Just dreams!  So far I’ve not gotten bonked in the head, though I’ve probably just jinxed myself.

At least the squirrels are happy burying them all over the back yard.  Hey, it’s free lawn aeration, right?

Here are some favorite reads over the last couple of weeks.

Have a great weekend.  And, if you’re near any walnut trees, keep an eye in the sky!

Friday Favorites – September 22, 2017

Today is the first day of fall but you would never know it.  We are getting the summer that some say we never had.  It is HOT!  Temperatures are at or near 90 degrees!  And it will be like this through the first part of next week.

We are taking advantage of the time and going for a quick camping weekend.  And, we’re going to the beach!  Tomorrow

will be the hottest beach day we’ve had all season in all of our trips.

Crazy!

Here are some recent posts around the personal finance blog world that I love.

I hope you have a great weekend!  Happy reading.

Random Roundup – September 15, 2017

Happy Friday.  We’re getting some summer like weather here in Michigan.  It’s been a pretty chilly few weeks, with below average temps for much of the last month.  We’ll be enjoying the warm temps though we already have some fall colors and leaves dropping.

Great Personal Finance Posts

I love reading other personal finance blogs.  They inspire me and teach me.  It seems lately there have been a bundle of good posts.  Here are a few recent favorites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

I hope you enjoy these posts.  Have a great weekend!

Saturday Sprinkle #4

Hi all.  I hope you had a great week.  Here are some random thoughts and lots of great blog posts that I wanted to share.

  • Great Weekend Ahead – We had a really warm start to March, but the thing is, even when you’re 10 degrees above normal, it’s still pretty cool.  Since then we’ve had a cold spell that finally broke this week.  Now, we’ve got temps set to hit the 60’s and 70’s for the next week straight.  It’s finally spring time in Michigan and we plan to be outdoors to celebrate!
  • The Great Life – Have you ever noticed that some people have an absolute perfect life?  At least according to their social media!  Femme Frugality wisely points out that you can’t let what others post about their lives steal the joy from yours.
  • Tupperware – This stuff lasts forever, right?  Well not always, but they do offer a lifetime warranty, and Amanda at Frugal Confessions put it to the test with some pretty positive results!
  • What You Don’t Know – Some people love to plan things down to the final detail, but as much as that can work in many ways, there are always things that are going to pop up.  Mom & Dad Money discuss how to deal with uncertainty when it comes your way.
  • Why Go Out Of Your Way? – Sometimes you see people doing little things for others and you wonder if it can really make a difference?  I happened across this foreign commercial that shows that yes, it’s possible.
  • Flying The Amateur Skies – We don’t do much flying, but I did enough that we avoid most of these faux pauxs committed by airport amateurs as noted by Penny Hoarder , though I have to admit, I have seen many of these. actually happen.
  • The Best Time – When is it time to make a fresh start or start going for that long desired goal that you keep putting off?  Christina at Northern Cheapskate thinks the time might be right now!
  • Half Hearted Landlord – You hear more and more stories, especially after the burst of the housing bubble, where people move but decide to rent out their former house.  Sometimes this works, but as Will points out at Growing the Green, you might just want to think twice, especially if your heart really isn’t in it.
  • Not In My Backyard – We’ve all heard of the ‘not in my backyard’ syndrome, and while sometimes you have situations where it’s a good idea that people just don’t want near them, sometimes, as Funny About Money points out, it’s just a bad idea that does no good at all.

Have a great weekend!
