Sunday Surf: I'm thankful

Welcome to the Sunday Surf! Here are some of the best links I've read this past week.

I had a very gratitude-filled Thanksgiving, celebrated with family and new friends and delicious food made by other people. But the best part is, I can now start listening to Christmas music without feeling sheepish! Happy first Sunday of Advent, if you celebrate that sort of thing. I love something cozy to enjoy as the days grow ever darker.

On to the link roundup, which I did mostly all today:

National Novel Progress Month

Three days left! We can do it! How's your progress?

NaNoProgMo: National Novel Progress Month

Remember, Teresa from Mom Grooves is offering each of our fabulous NaNoProgMo participants a gift — truly! So if you're following along or want to join, just email her your address and she'll mail you a little writerly pick-me-up. More details at: How's your "prog"?

You can also see how my progress is going here: Halfway or two-thirds? Find out what I've learned about writing, balance, and fear. Since I wrote that, I've finished my novel to the point that I'm having Sam take another look at it. Whenever he gets around to it. Hint, hint, ahem. In the meanwhile, I'm working on the NPN Cloth Diapering book! Also a fun job.

We have a linky, button and a progress meter available, so join us! Yes, still. We can always keep going next month, too, right?

Holiday shopping

I'm a member of a bazillion affiliate programs, which has nearly zero impact on my bank account but does expose me to a lot of great deals. Of course, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are tops on the list for shopping steals and coupons. So I've tried to round up the best picks for natural parents and post them on Hobo Mama Reviews as I have time.

If that's interesting to you, here are a few highlights:
