Well, happy first day of October to you. Once again, I find myself taken by surprise by how quickly the months are passing by, and wonder where all the time has gone. To remind myself, I've decided to share some of my favorite things from September. Things like posts, pictures, products, newly discovered blogs, books... anything I've encountered that had an impact. Things like:
This Here's How Hugh Howey (Bestselling Author of Wool) Writes interview over on Copyblogger. I haven't read through Hugh Howey's work yet, but I've heard very good things, and found his commentary on the writing process, and self-publishing in particular, educational and inspiring.
A new favorite mug for the collection, thrifted.
This SheaMoisture Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. If you have curly hair, this is a product worth looking into. I found it for $12 at my local target, which is a little pricier than I'm accustomed to spending for a tub of hair cream, but I've had it for a couple weeks now, and even though I use it every day, I've barely scratched the surface. A little goes a long way, and it smells really nice.
Call the Midwife. This is an incredible show. I'm so glad there's going to be a third season. I watched the first two seasons on Netflix streaming, and as of now, it's still available.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. I've already discussed why I like this book in a previous post, but I thought I'd mention it again.
Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard. I was in line at the feed store when I saw this book on the shelf near the cash registers. I picked it up, and started thumbing through the photos, and fell in love. I had to buy it. The images are beautiful, really, and so inspiring. There's a lot of practical information within about setting up your garden in a chicken-friendly way. I can't wait to start applying some of it to my own backyard next spring.
Divergent. Basically, if you were a fan of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, you'll like this too. It's a fun, quick read.
And, finally, this recipe for roasted tomato soup. Seriously, y'all. It's so good. Please try it if you find yourself with an abundance of fresh tomatoes.
