I’m WIPED y’all. I looked at my list of readings this week and they’re all really intense and sad.
Can I just share 5 nice things with you? Here’s some light fare for a dark week, dear friends – if you are in the path of this storm, I hope you find the resources you need to stay safe!
25 of the New Words Merriam-Webster Is Adding to the Dictionary in 2018. My girl “zoodle” made the list!
- 10 Tips for Baking Simple Bread at Home, Bon Appetit. My (dad’s) tip for baking bread isn’t on here, but feed your yeast a little warm water and sugar to get it started before you combine it with everything else and it rises much faster! This time of year is perfect for making bread.
- She’s All Fat podcast. One of my new favorite podcasts! I’ve been thinking of making a post of 5-10 of my favorite podcasts, which keep me company in every ordinary moment that I don’t want to be alone with my thoughts (god forbid!). Keep an eye out for that post this month, but in the meantime check out this awesome body positivity podcast – these women are sharp, funny, and kind.
- The concept of Facebook groups. This is not a link but it is my favorite part of Facebook lately – being a part of groups related to my work or interests (I belong to a few librarian groups and a self-care group) has brought positivity and new ideas to my News Feed.
- Colorplan. This is a cool tool to play around with color combinations, to kill a little time while you wait to hear back from someone, or to look at every beautiful shade that the Internet can bring me. (I heard about this one from Swissmiss Studio, a design blog I like!)
