Similar to the awesome thread You know you're a permie when..., I think permies' browser tabs (or browser windows) paint a picture of a different type of life sometimes, too.

Current sitch for me:
  • map to pick up a free mirror for my wall from a member in my neighborhood buy nothing group
  • recipes and techniques for WAY more foods than I have time to cook (yum, omnom, yummy, nomnom, cool)
  • work to do lists and apps (signs of self-employment and my joy of being able to work from home)
  • prescription and doctor's contact details (for my step-dad, because I live close by now and am happy to help)
  • article on brain fog caused by this long-suffering pandemic
  • herbs for sinuses
  • hopness YouTube video
  • a plant censored by Facebook because of its common name.

  • What's your snapshot of life online these days (you know, besides permies.com)?

    Interesting topic! I didn’t realize how many tabs I had open...

    Right now I have several grocery stores (giant, food lion, weis) to compare sales and put a list together.
    Misfit market site to place vegetable order
    Whole 30 website to review rules as I’m starting again tomorrow.  I do the diet every few months to help manage joint pain/fibromyalgia.
    Different recipe sites for whole 30 plan for next 2 weeks (whole 30, primal kitchen, whole kitchen sink)
    What’s good at Trader Joe’s blog because I like to torture myself with write ups of things I can’t eat😀
    Farmers almanac for some gardening and beekeeping info
    Practical self reliance.com for gardening and wine making
    Some other wine making sites because my sister got me a brewsy kit
    Some sites to compare container prices for human and pet food storage
    Glutenfreemall.com to put together some treats to send to a friend

    My life seems to be revolving around food currently!

    1. Ebay, to see what the current prices are for the antiques I picked up at garage sales this weekend

    2. Google, to see if I can discover what a couple of items even are that I got at garage sales this weekend (they are cool and old & I figured they're worth some good money)

    3. Youtube, favorite song

    4. Google, getting step by step instructions on how to make certain fabric home decor items

    5. Youtube, various videos that popped up in my feed

    6. Google, images, getting ideas to help me create the perfect curtains for the guest room

    7. Google, recipes for taco seasoning like taco bell used on meximelts (they don't offer those anymore and I miss them)

    Working from home has definitely opened up a whole new world for me.

    Ebay for antiques and retrofit parts for farm designs

    craigslist for animals and antiques machinery parts

    YouTube for positive music (Usually Rachel Platten) I enjoy real artists that just do their thing

    the Prairie Homestead for a fun loving homesteading

    Fy Nyth for deep thinking, Ariel grows food in the shortest season

    Melissa K. Norris for loads of food information from someone that had to do it

    Richard Perkins for learning how to deal with regulations and a total different view point

    Joel Salatin for the spark of insanity that I need to keep going

    Wow, that is more than I thought.  All these people on this list have one awesome thing about them whether I agree with them or not, they all try.

    I love the themes that are cropping up:  food, gardening, herbs, DIY decor, innovative thinking- just to name a few!

    It shows our interests, doesn't it?

    Edited to add:  I often have YouTube open for positive music, too. Somehow I like YouTube's algorithms for suggested music better than other music apps.
