Things are dissolving into wildness these days as I get ready for book events and travel, and it seems all my thoughts are coming in lists. So today, a list!
I’m finding the idea of the kitchen uniform to be very helpful these days. I put on an apron, and then I’m kitchen me. I bought this new one for my Craftsy class last month, and I don’t seem to want to take it off. But when I do, I wear this one.
In two weeks, this! Tickets still available! This is also my only NYC event, so if that’s where you are, I’d love to see you.
Joey wrote a piece about his crazy and brilliant Aunt Esther’s Amazon reviews. I know I’m biased because I’m married to the guy, but really, read it.
My love letter to the town dump is in this month’s issue of Taproot. If you’re a subscriber, it’s there towards the back, with a really gorgeous illustration by Hannah Rosengren.
There’s a piece in the NYT this week about vegan glam, and I think it’s a worthwhile read. Pondering this, especially: “Being a vegan is still a political act in America. But having all these beautiful people rebelling in this way is really compelling.” Thoughts?
Kizzi won an early copy of The Homemade Kitchen! Thank you to everyone who entered. I loved reading about all the ways you’re doing your best and letting go.
I bought a bar of this soap at the Big E and it’s making me love my kitchen sink more. It’s a good soap moment in my house all around right now, because in the shower I’ve got this amazing one from my newest site sponsor.
I just rediscovered this, which I loved when I was a teenager. Sadie bought some too, and now we both smell like roses.
A few funny things on kids and school lunch this week. Is this really news? 1. On the choices they make, and 2. On the time we give them to make them. Can we give our kids a little more credit here?
I always love the MacArthur Genius announcement because I learn about new people doing wonderful things. I went down a wonderful hole when I went searching for Ellen Bryant Voigt’s poetry, and I’m glad I did. Especially this one.
And now I’m officially a Jessica Biel Fan. Yes to this.
Happy Wednesday, friends. Feel free to add to the list in the comments! What’s happening out there in your little corner of the internet?
