It’s been a gloomy pair of days this way, and I’ve made the most of it by doing all the inside things that tend to get ignored from doing: closets are straightened, laundry is done, den is tidy(er). I made some bread, which seemed like a good thing to do, and I’ll tell you more about that later this week.
How’s it going with you? I hope that you’re not letting the stress of life in too much, and settling into the shorter days with a warm beverage, cozy sweater and good book in hand. I just finished the Queen of the Tearling trilogy by Erika Johansen, and while the third books seemed to take forever to get on with it, I’d recommend it because you know you’re going to read it once Emma Watson has her way with the screenplay! What are you reading?
I hate the 24-hour news cycle and waking up each morning to hear so much has changed since the evening before. Trying to dig through the noise for words that make me laugh, cry and think, here’s what I’ve got:
8 Culinary Cycling Trips I need to take. Yes, need. My cycles through Ireland, Germany and Holland were three of my favorite vacations, and I can’t wait to head out on another one, especially one food themed, whenever that may be! If you have the time and inclination to try it, it will no doubt be your favorite, too!
Basic Science is cool! And, it’s running out of funding. Who will fund the next generation’s great scientific discovery?
THIS is privilege. A must-watch for everyone.
If you could live forever, would you? The science of aging and the effort to slow it down.
More science: An Alzheimer’s drug, good for the teeth? So it would seem.
This life doesn’t sound all that bad. The 74 year-old woman who traded love for a life of travel.
Paying to avoid climate change? Seems most of us are willing to put our money where our mouth is.
Why are we getting more obese? The answers are obvious.
And finally, for the fellow large-chested ladies out there, a good laugh.
Have a great week!
Go Cubs GO!
