Happy November, friends!
I’m eyebrow deep in research and food allergy studies and linear equations, so this is a quick hello and happy weekend.
Nature in the Nursery – on Charlotte Mason Poetry – What I found so fascinating in this particular article is the way seeds were sprouted without potting mix or paper towels. Rather “zero-waste,” and I do wonder why it is no longer done that way. I think I’ll give it a go in the spring (especially considering that Mr. Norseman can supply me with sawdust.)
Rebuilding Muscle after (or, with) Diastasis Recti – A free set of workouts for (typically) the ladies. If you want a free program that is simply laid out without much fuss, this is it. I’ve used a couple of paid programs, and they really are great, but I needed something that I could do quickly, without pulling out the TV or laptop, during my morning routine.
28 Day Diastasis Workout Challenge – Guys, warning, midriffs and tight workout clothes abound on that page, if you are looking to avoid viewing that sort of thing. I included it because the exercises are very simple but very effective. It is probably too much, too fast if you were not exercising before/during being pregnant, or otherwise have not been (or never have been) exercising. I picked a few of the exercises that I liked to keep doing on my own. There may be a few there that you will like as well.
The Current State of Oral Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Food Allergy – A wonderful article. Explains what OIT is and what the overall “current state” is. This is the closest thing that we have right now to a treatment (not a cure, just a treatment) for food allergies.
For the would-be writers, and lovers of stories: an interview with Andrew Peterson – If you have a book or an article or a poem or anything that you want to write, here is some beautiful but kick-in-the-pants encouragement for you. It is also a beautiful piece for any lover of stories, so I do urge all of you to read it.
