Friday Favorites: December 1, 2017

Happy December.  How have things been with you?  Here’s a roundup of my favorite posts over the past couple of weeks.  Also, here’s a little tidbit of what’s going on.  I hope things are good with you!

Pain In The….

I’ve really started to enjoy running. Unfortunately, for the second time in the last three years, I’ve had to take a break.  I started feeling a pain in my foot and recognized the signs of plantar fasciitis.  Like last time, I know taking a timeout from running will help.

Friday Favorites – November 2017

Happy Anniversary to my parents!  My dad and step-mom got married 33 years ago today.  They have set so many great examples for me.  They’re very responsible with money.  Family comes first.  I really love them both and wish them many more happy and healthy years together.

Friday Favorites – October 20, 2017

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks.  We were supposed to go camping last weekend but didn’t.  It poured buckets all day Saturday.  That would have been our final trip of the year.  Oh, well.  In addition, kids activities have kicked into high gear.  My son is doing Cub Scouts for the second year in a row.  I’m excited (and a little nervous) as I agreed to be his den leader.  That means I’ll be coordinating activities for the ‘Bears’ (a.k.a.) third graders.  Definitely exciting!

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.


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.
