This week is brought to you by brevity.
"Gladly" by Tirzah.
"Velvet Ring" by Big Thief.
I discovered NPR's Field Recordings and it's a worthy rabbit hole to fall into.
If you ever need a laugh and love snacks, these Trader Joe's write-ups are gold: Trader Joe’s New Not-Flamin’-Hot-Cheetos Are the Devil’s Work
I'm leaning back into one of my old standards: dressing very Florida retiree. Big button-up short sleeved shirts with some sort of flora. Shorts. Comfortable sandals or old Keds. When I'm not going out in public it's a lot of tank tops and elastic waist pants. Summer comfort.
Tears running down my face by way of new episodes of Queer Eye.
Next weekend The Great British Bake Off is back and I am delighted for more bakes, sweetness, and accents.
Rest: This past weekend included delightful lounging. Long bus rides. Afternoon naps. Lying on the floor with cats. Stopping to admire flowers. Floating around in a pool. Taking strolls with family and sharing bites of a single caramel. Eating wedges of cookies and handfuls of berries. Lazing in bed to read and write and edit and write. Just the thing to recharge for more adventures.
