This and That

Walking with Cake: Chinatown Koi Pond

(A koi pond at Austin’s Chinatown Center.)

This week flew by, and I was busy working on a blog-related event that I hope to share soon.  I also got to meet a fellow blogger who lives in my little city, Miss Donna of Discount Thief, and we spent two wonderful hours chatting about one of my favorite subjects!  This weekend will be quiet and relaxed (the best kind!), and we don’t have any major plans besides desperately needed haircuts for the boys.  Here are a few things that caught my attention this week.

This BBC News piece about Young House Love and their quest for work-life balance.  If you read their blog, then you know the Petersiks are DEDICATED to their profession, and they work like crazy.  All the time.  Here’s hoping they can find more downtime this year.

Sandra’s first Salon event, in which she takes blogging to the next level, in real life.  I dream of hosting something like this.

And last weekend, I heard part of my favorite radio station’s interview with the incredible Kris Kristofferson, who just released a new album.  Talk about a Renaissance Man.  Did you know that he was a Rhodes Scholar and a helicopter pilot before he became a songwriter?  And one of the songs on his new album was co-written by Shel Silverstein.  Plus, Kris Kristofferson is from Texas, so that makes him just about perfect.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
