monday miscellany

Rainy days and Mondays…make for a short list:

~ I’m glad to see someone talking about this: All sins are equal, and further reflections on the belief that “all sins are equal.”

~ Chuy’s Creamy Jalapeño Dip copycat recipe. I really want to make this but I’m afraid it would set off a binge the likes of which I’ve never seen. That stuff is good, y’all.

~ 25 books to read when you feel like the world is falling apart. I actually don’t feel like the world is falling apart, but it’s an interesting list nonetheless. I’d put at the top Island of the World, my favorite novel. I’m going to read it again in 2017.

~ And last, a little something to think about on this Monday from Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink:

Think about yourself. Does what energizes you—what gets you up in the morning and propels you through the day—come from the inside or from the outside? What about your spouse, your partner, or your children? How about the men and women around you at work? If you’re like most people I’ve talked to, you instantly have a sense into which category someone belongs.

Happy Monday, y’all!

    My thoughts: We just had a discussion about this in our Sunday School class last week. So interesting how many people seem to equate sins, though when they start to really think about it, they seem to see differences. Good article.

    My thoughts: Oh, the fear of a binge…….I so understand this!

    My thoughts: First, I think it was through you that I first became acquainted with MMD. And I know it was through you that I started listening to her podcasts, BUT I did NOT realize she was MMD! Thank you for the intro! I usually don’t do challenges with “rules” or guidelines (I just want to read and move on books from my own shelves), but I’m inclined to meld one of her challenges into my own for 2017. And Island? Oh, yes! I do think I might re-read this one too.

    My thoughts: Interesting…….so I looked to see if my libraries had this available in audio, and, yes!, one does. Hoping to listen soon, maybe on my roadtrip next week.

    Thanks again, Anne, for taking the time to continue “Miscellany.” I, for one, really enjoy and am benefited by it.

    Merry Christmas!
