Listen While You Work :: Podcasts {day 3}

It's easy to let life go by in a blur.  So many errands to run, chores to do, meals to make.  We often yearn to find just a moment for ourselves in the midst of all the busyness.

The solution for me has been as simple as combining the two.  
Chores + Podcasts = Productive and Fulfilling time!  
I listen in the car, on my iPod or iPhone or even simply through the computer by using the websites below.  Enjoy!

1.  Among Women Podcast by Pat Gohn   is my favorite podcast to listen to these days.  In every episode she focuses on the life of a saint and then interviews an author, blogger, or person of interest in the Catholic world of new media.  If I had to sum up the Among Women podcasts in one word I would say peaceful.  Here is the Master Index of all topics and guests.

2.  Faith and Family Live Podcast hosted by Danielle Bean, Lisa Hendey and several other Catholic bloggers.  This is the podcast for you if you want to sit down for a chat with your best girlfriends over coffee.  The three hostesses discuss various topics related to the season of the year in family and church life.  These podcasts often make me laugh out loud and always make me think.

3.  Homemakers by Choice Podcast by Donna Otto is absolutely amazing.  These podcasts are the most practical, helpful, idea-laden podcasts you will find regarding home organization, cleaning, marriage, mothering, Christmas preparation and on and on.  Have a notepad at the ready because this dynamo of a woman had more valuable suggestions in 30 minutes than you can remember without writing them down.

Here's to listening while you work!

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

How to Create Art in Five Minutes

As I have mentioned before, my word for this year is CREATE .  Painting with watercolors is one area in which I have been experimenting.  Michael's has a really inexpensive line of art supplies called Artist's Loft .  I bought the watercolor paints and a few brushes as a way to get started without much investment. (Everything is around $5-$10.)   Being a part of Alisa Burke's on-line class called Create Daily , has awakened my senses to the many opportunities to create quickly .  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that we must have large blocks of time set aside to be artistic .  Surely, we think, it takes an afternoon to paint, collage, journal or compose a few lines of poetry.  Well, if you are seeking perfection, it does.  But if you are seeking to revel in your simplistic ability to create something imperfect instead of nothing at all ,  there are moments of creative inspiration everywhere you look! On this particular day, I opened my daily poetry em

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals
