Summer all the way
It may be 60 degrees out and raining this morning, but I'm still feeling summer all the way. I bought a flat of apricots yesterday that will soon find their way into a batch of preserves, Eli's poaching salmon for dinner tonight, and I'm making his mother's cucumber salad.
Also on our list: busting into the giant watermelon currently occupying our counter, an episode or two of House of Cards (SO GOOD.), reading aloud from this, and replacing the light bulb over the kitchen table that exploded out of nowhere last night, raining down tiny particles of glass on the entire room. La la la la.
A Friday five:
:: Megan's roasted strawberry buttermilk milkshake. Ooooo, baby. I am notoriously inept at milkshake making (strawberry milk, anyone?). I think it's time to get back on the horse.
:: This article about being your best whole person. It's specifically geared toward women in academia, but I think there's an important message here for anyone - man, woman, parent or not.
:: This piece by Rachel Howard about getting stuff down on the page.
:: A terrific film I saw on my birthday back in May. It's called Stories We Tell, and it's about exactly that.
:: Joy's modus operandi (mine too, by the way), with a side of waffles.
And speaking of waffles, come back next week. I'll have lots.
