Holy shyt, I can’t believe it’s Friday already, and aside from my favorite program on the radio station, we all know what that means: weekend time! Last weekend, I hoped to make it to the farmer’s market, but those plans fell through for several reasons. Guess it just wasn’t meant to be that time. Hopefully this weekend that’ll change. If not, the farmer’s market in my neighborhood will be back next week, and I’ll go to that one instead.
Otherwise, besides this blog and my day job stuff, I’m hoping I get the chance to hit up the craft store, and maybe a nearby shop to check out some options for a little something I’ve been in the market to buy for awhile.
How ’bout you, readers? What are your weekend plans? Drop ’em like they’re hot below, and let’s get the party started.
To ring in the weekend, I’ve got some links for us to share, talk about, what have you.
Another scary reminder that the pandemic’s not over yet. Wear a damn mask, and if that’s not possible, do the next best thing and wear a face shield. Stay home when and where possible. I want you readers safe and healthy!
Willie Mays turned 90 a couple days ago. Willie, if you find this, happy belated birthday! Speaking of baseball, the minor-league team in my area’s had their first few games of the season this week. I’ve been listening to the games on the radio, since I haven’t been feeling so good lately to where I’m up to a bike ride to the stadium. (Don’t worry, readers, it’s got nothing to do w/ the pandemic, I promise!)
In other news, there’s a giant sturgeon that’s estimated to be 100 years old, found in Detroit.
A great post about moving beyond the all-or-nothing, now-or-never, black-or-white worldview. Seriously, a worldview like that’s so exhausting anyway.
Show of hands, who here’s felt like it’s never enough. Guilty as charged, even as we speak, haha. Anyways, this post is a good read to help sort through those feelings in favor of something less emotionally destructive.
A guide to cryptocurrency for any readers in the market for investments like this. I’ve flirted with the idea of buying bitcoin off and on, so maybe I’ll actually move forward with it sometime soon.
A how-to for your own coping box/bag/what have you. This way, all your stuff for decompressing and debriefing isn’t all over the place, or doesn’t get shuffled in a move. Mine did, and I’ve found most of it by now.
Would any of you swim in this sky pool? Me, no way. Even if someone paid me a million bucks. I swear, I dropped my transmission just looking at the pics of it, haha.
Remember Antiques Roadshow? I used to watch it all the time back in late middle and throughout high school on PBS. They’re getting more celebrities in their lineup this month.
Love the idea of using jewelry and accessories as part of a room’s decor! This would be a great way to put what I’m not wearing to use at the same time.
These watering cans, OMG! Talk about an upgrade, especially that gold misting thing. My watering can’s a cheapie Melissa and Doug in the shape of a chameleon, found at Walgreens in the clearance bin for 5 bucks like three years ago.
All the more reason to support local independent bookstores, imo. These shops look like they’d be so much fun to visit, and if I’m ever in the area for any of these places, I’m totally going in.
Speaking of design, this pavilion makes me wish I was there right now. This would be a really neat place to spend a Sunday afternoon with my journal, especially in the fall months.
