Links For the Weekend

I love the Internet.  It’s an amazing place full of stuff, an almost overwhelming amount of stuff.  But then the world is filled with amazing things to start with.  There is stuff that answers my questions, stuff that keeps me informed, stuff that inspires me to be a better person, stuff that makes me laugh, and stuff that serves absolutely no purpose at all.

So, I’ve decided that each Friday I’ll share a random assortment of the interesting things I’ve found on the Internet during the week.  If you’re bored, or it’s raining, or you need some bathroom reading, here are some ideas to get you started.

Now you folks in the UK will never have to worry about explaining the offside rule. Or will you?

I love abstract photography.  Photographer Cliff Briggie has done amazing work with paint and ice.

How could you not want a house with a slide?  Inside…  where the stairs should be…

What an inspiring way to spell out what’s important in your life.

I like Beyoncé (baby congrats!) and love Downton Abbey (come on Season 3!). Well, find out what happens when you mix Downton Abbey and Beyoncé.

OMG!  Check out this little girl.  Looking past the talent she’s obviously got, I think I am mildly horrified by the images in the mirror of the mom stage directing.  Maybe there was a less grown up song that could have showcased her talents just as well?

I think all men should react like this to our crazy girlie craft projects.

Reading beautiful children’s picture books to the Little Monkey is a delight.  I found this great selection.

I dare you to try this next time you are out for a meal with your friends or family!

Pardon me, is this your kitten?

Have a good weekend!

Note:  If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet, I recommend checking it out.  It is by far the easiest way I’ve found yet for keeping track of and organizing all the stuff I find on the Internet that I want to remember.

    hi Kathrine,
    wonderful blog and wonderful pictures!
    I found your comment on the photorazza-Blog. Don’t use google translation ! Everyone will understand an english comment better, than the translation via google. 😉
    (I translated back to understand the meaning)
    My english is also very bad, because it is long time ago I learned and used it. So please excuse for that.

    Have a nice evening!

      Thanks for that! This was the first time I’d had a reason to comment Oma blog in a foreign language so I thought I’d give it a go. Now I know better!
