Morning Reading - Links for Some of My Favorite Blogs

The first thing I do in the morning is stumble down my stairs, let my dog out, and pour my coffee.  My coffee is very important, but that is for another post.  Today, I am going to talk about what I do while I am drinking my coffee.  My morning ritual.  I let my dog, Shadow, back in the house, and then he and I go back upstairs.  I turn on the news, open my nook, and check my emails.

You see, some of the blogs I read are in google reader, and some come in my emails.  I clean the junk out of my emails, and take care of business, and then I settle in to read my favorite blogs.

Thoughts By Natalie

I read Thoughts by Natalie to see what beautiful thoughts are traveling through her mind.  Her writing is geared towards women in their 20's ( definitely not me, I'm 53 ), but that doesn't matter.  I love the thought provoking way she looks at life, and I believe that she is a wonderful role model for young women.  She talks about body image, volunteering, dressing, shopping for vintage clothing,  and healthy values for the young adults that she writes for.  I have followed her move to Texas and admire her tenacity to make a life and friends in Austin.

One Good Thing by Jillee
I am always really excited to see what new things that One Good Thing by Jillee is going to teach me for the day.  I have made so many of the different items from her blog.  I am amazed by how many great ideas she has, check out yesterdays blog about making colored jars and vases.  I also love her recipe for Jillee's OxyKleen, Homemade Hairspray, and her Crockpot Greek Yogurt Recipe.  I have now made this yogurt it for the 2nd week in a row.  Check her out and see what other great ideas she has to offer.  I promise you will enjoy her writing.

Melissa from The Inspired Room

A really beautiful blog that I read in the mornings also, is The Inspired Room.  I look at all of the beautiful pictures from magazines, and it makes me want to decorate my house.  She talks about the decorating she is doing in her house, and projects she is trying to finish, like her home office.  Monday's blog was about garden sheds.  Some of these sheds are amazingly beautiful.  Some are even little guest houses.  I do not have a yard big enough for a shed, but I am sure lots of people do.  Take a peek at her blog, to see what inspires you.

Next week I will post more links to blogs.  There is so much out there, and I believe that these women that I read each day are truly amazing.  They show creativity, and a willingness to share their knowledge, and for that I am extremely grateful.

Let me know what you think of these blogs, and what blogs you enjoy reading.  I love finding new blogs to read.

I wish you beautiful reading for the next week.
