Another week’s come and gone, and so has another month. Talk about a twofer, right there! It’s Friday, and that means it’s weekend time once again. This weekend, I’ll hit up the farmer’s market for sure, it’ll be a maybe on the last weekend of the season for a mom-and-pop restaurant in town, and hopefully I’ll have the chance to get started on something I’ve been wanting to finish up for a long time. Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired af of looking at it in the basement, haha.
I’m also gonna catch the last few baseball games on the radio, since I can’t make it to the stadium. The last time I was able to make it over there, it was the second-to-last game of the season before the pandemic. The baseball games on the radio kept me company over this long, difficult summer, that’s for sure.
How ’bout you? 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 us some links to talk about, share, what have you.
I’d love to make this recipe for roasted cauliflower. Finally got through my first attempt at it, which wasn’t so great, but edible.
Another great way to use up those bananas: peanut butter banana cookies.
A post about lessons from Audrey Hepburn, with some valuable takeaways for all of us.
A neat list for things to do this fall, and it also covers the holidays in a couple months too. Sheesh, where’s the time gone?! [EDIT 3-4-2023: The original post is gone, and the site is down. I’ll see what I can come up w/ at some point.]
Isn’t the design on the Opportunity Pavilion cool or what? I’d love the chance to see it in person someday.
The story of how Primary came to be. I’ve got my eye on a couple of things on their website, btw, not gonna lie. They make it so easy to be on brand, haha.
How Renia Spiegel’s diary turned up in the U.S. It’s one of the lesser-known diaries from the Holocaust, and it was published around this time 2 years ago. I may have to get me a copy sometime.
It’s so easy to get caught in the rabbit hole of Wishbook Web’s Sears catalogue scans. Some of that stuff really didn’t age well, to say the least. Not gonna lie, I totally want those bell bottoms with the 36-inch leg openings from the Lemon Frog Shop in the 1974 Sears catalogue, and those weird brown corduroy bell bottoms on the following page too. Now if they came in other colors instead of just the ones pictured, I’d be a happy girl. That skirt/pants/jacket set from 1969’s pretty cool too, gotta admit.
You probably saw my post over on the ‘gram about the circle skirt I made. This post talks about the history behind it, and how it was one of those accidental trends. On that note, this post has some pics of people wearing them. Like the phone-themed one in the first pic, btw.
While we’re on the subject, this post talks about a 1950s beauty schedule. Isn’t it wild or what? I wonder how many people actually followed it.
I’m just not feeling the rain boot liners in the stores this season. The ones I wanted sold out like forever ago, so I’d love to make my own sometime soon. Just gotta hit up JoAnn at some point for some fleece, haha.
Already paid someone that you believe is a scammer? You may still have some recourse in getting your money back, depending on how fast you take action. As always, report what happened to the IC3, and to the FTC. Maybe consider sending the scammer’s number or email address my way? Just an idea.
On a similar note, here’s how to spot the extortion scam on LGBTQ dating sites. This is really scary, but these scammers likely have dozens, if not hundreds of others on the hook, and to them, it’s a numbers game. At the end of the day, they’re just a bunch of asshole thugs looking for easy money.
A great post about being codependent, obese, and a people pleaser. This was me before I lost the weight, and I’ll never forget how it felt.
This guy’s got six figures worth of student loan debt for his kids. Seriously, something’s gotta give in this whole student loan disaster. I’m tired of this crap!
This little girl died before her first jingle dress dance. So sad and heartbreaking. Rest in peace, Nytalia!
This article talks about crimes against women, so if you need to give this a miss, do so. Anyways, R. Kelly was convicted of sex trafficking. My heart goes out to every one of those who fell victim to him, both those who’ve come forward, and those who haven’t. I see you, and you matter to me.
Last but not least, a signal boost for a missing child. The last sighting of 11-year-old Na’Siyah McPhaul of Baltimore, MD was on September 2nd. If you see a child matching her description, make that call. Let’s get her home safe to the people who care about her.
Thanks for mentioning my PB banana cookies in this article! They’re definitely a fav way to use up overripe bananas here. I also appreciate the fall and holiday bucket list that you linked to – I’ve been meaning to make a fun list for the fam.
Hey, no worries at all, and more importantly, thanks for stopping by! I’ve now got one more recipe in the rotation for overripe bananas besides the mug cake I linked here like way early on in this blog’s existence. As far as the fall and holiday to-do list, I totally agree. I’m using it as inspiration to come up with my own list of stuff I’d like to do this year.
