It’s Friday, I’m in Love

Books Aaaaaalllll the books right now. Since the election, reading is my coping strategy of choice. I find that I need to check out a lot more lately lest my head explode reading Facebook and Twitter. Book Orders Remember the newsprint fliers you brought home from school with the teeny form you, or your mom with her neat … Continue reading

Alfie Boe I listened to a few episodes of the podcast, Desert Island Discs: Dame Judi Dench, Mary Berry and Alfie Boe. They were all delightful and, Alfie, in particular, was just charming. I love his story and the way he talks about his family. He recalls his father fondly and it is just so sweet. I first … Continue reading

Star Wars. I have spent the last few weeks months getting excited for The Force Awakens, watching The Force Awakens, watching the Original trilogy and reading every analysis article I can find on the internet. Two good ones: This snark on the Huff Post’s idiot TFA review delighted me this morning. The Feminism Awakens By the … Continue reading

I’m loving the Indigo Girls latest album, One Lost Day. It is wistful, sweet, reflective, mournful, retrospective, and mature. It doesn’t have the angst of Swamp Ophelia, but then again, 21 years later, neither do I. It’s a beautiful album, full of Emiliy Saliers’s sweet voice and Amy Ray’s powerful energy. ~~~ Sarah likes to … Continue reading

It is WARM. There are flowers and buds on the trees and little bright green leaves and it’s like the cold, depressing winter fog has lifted. If you need a smile for your Friday, listen to the Mortified podcast. People read from their adolescent journals and it is hilarious and so cringe-worthy. It comes out on Mondays … Continue reading

Then one where I jotted down recipes I wanted to make and didn’t want to forget. Then yet another where I wanted … Continue reading

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

I’ve been listening to Barenaked Ladies’ Stunt album this week. I love music from my youth that I can sing along with really really loudly. Bonus points for embarrassing my children. (My personal favorite song: Call and Answer) I finally finished watching How I Met Your Mother. And I actually really like the way it … Continue reading

It’s been a lovely week-ish around here. Things have improved dramatically since this post about the way things were going with my kids and family. As with all things parenting, everything passes and so I am happy that this particular rough patch has passed. Helping things is the fact that my sweet Sarah turned 7, my … Continue reading

Happy Friday! Here are just some random, only semi-food related thoughts for today: Over on Food Lush I wrote about this easy yummy lunch I make with quinoa and a fried egg. I wanted to add two things: I usually make a batch of quinoa, keep it in the fridge and heat it in a … Continue reading
