How’s everyone doing? It’s been a quite a nice weekend on my end. Though the blue-grey October sky has come and stayed, and my teams fought and lost some hard-won battles, I can’t complain too, too much (but perhaps a little). Yesterday I turned over my closet in a statement of acceptance that fall is definitively here. And I love it.
Spending more time in my apartment shielded from the cold more often as of late, I’ve started to mentally compile a winter to-do list:
Movies. I see none. Do you all ever avoid movies that you think you should watch but are so afraid of allthefeels that you stay away? That’s how I’m feeling right now about Everest. I mean, I was there, and the earthquake in Nepal really hit home. It looks SO good, but I just…can’t do it. Not yet anyway. If you see it, I’d love to know your thoughts.
TV. Anyone watch The Muppets yet?
Crafting. Photo album-ing should be a priority. They take up so much time, but are so, SO worth it when done. Do you scrapbook?
Baking. Let’s have a cake in the house all the time because insulation is key for the upcoming winter.
What’s your winter to-do list?
Unrelated: throw out a compliment today. It might just make all the difference in someone’s day.
Now, the somethings. Here you go:
So tragic. Doctors without Borders killed in Afghanistan. When very bad things happen to very good people.
Sad tears. Rangers hug an orphaned gorilla. Everyone needs hugs. And often.
Happy tears. Watch as woman burned as baby meets nurse who cared for her, and again we cry watching The Today Show.
More tears. True or not, here’s to the power of that compliment, or even just a small, seemingly-insignificant gesture.
Has the world really changed that much?? 17 Things from Friends that aren’t even things anymore. How old are we, really?
My girl crush, Kate Winslet, gives another example of why I know in my heart we’d be real-life friends.
And can we love Tom Hanks more than we already do?
Science, ya’ll. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Secret of the Ooze? Or just a biofluorescent turtle. No, not CGI. Glowing turtles.
Have a good week!
