Weekend linkage // 7QT #11

Linked up with Conversion Diary . . . well, actually Clan Donaldson today.

-well, husband, that's because you keep tickling me


Between BB's and Cherry Hill, I bought 150 pounds of apples this week. When perfectly good "seconds" are going for .45/lb, one must stock up. Little Mouse likes to nibble on half an apple while I can sauce or freeze slices.

Edit: I got at least 36 quarts of sauce, several crisps, and at least 8 quarts of sliced, quartered apples for baking and smoothies.


This is really funny (but some non-child-friendly language, so please be warned): The Primate Awards. I need a pygmy marmot, stat.


Time for videos of people being awesome! Sweet tap dancing and magical costume changes.


What does each country lead the world in?


Why are we so afraid of large families? "Who, knowing anything about human flourishing throughout history, would think that it’s impossible to be a good parent to six kids? Since when did having kids become something that Americans irrationally fear and loathe?"


And I wrote two more guest posts! Our love story, part 1 and part 2.

    How cute is that baby! Stopping by from 7QT.

  2. Cute kid! We picked up a bunch of apples recently too! They were .33 a pound!!!! If I was feeling better (I currently have never ending morning sickness) I'd have gotten a lot more, but I had to limit myself.

    Aw. Sorry about the morning sickness-- not a fun time. Hope you're able to enjoy the apples you did get!
