This week was a major rollercoaster. Well, to be fair, it’s felt like a rollercoaster for the past two months, but this week was up and down by the hour. I definitely had my “worst” day since the first week this all went down. I went to bed feeling panicky (I may have Googled “is my chest pain anxiety or COVID) and woke up on the wrong side of the bed so to speak. I try to keep as positive as possible but I really started to have a sense of suspended reality. I’ve moved on in a good way mentally, knowing I can’t think more than one day at a time at this point… and I have to be okay with nothing more.
I’m also kind of at that point where I’m getting tired of Instagram and overly perfect pictures (I’m guilty of this!). So in case you’re wondering what it’s actually like at the moment, see above.
Okay here’s what was on my radar this week:
Anyone else been searching for longer, fun pieces on the internet to read? I’m all about quick reads too, but there’s something nice about having a 10-15 minute escape. (Not to be confused with the rabbit holes searching the news can lead to.) I loved Emily Henderson’s post about the house they almost bought– they were able to interview and give a tour of how the owners designed it.
TWO // Whale Cribbage
THANK YOU guys for all the amazing two-player game recommendations. A few people commented about Cribbage and someone also alerted me to this WHALE version. Yep, promptly ordered. Then I texted Mike, “Get ready, we need to learn how to play Cribbage!”
My friend Jackie did a great round up of ways to support independent bookstores while in quarantine. Independent Bookstore Day is supposed to be tomorrow (it’s been postponed until the end of the summer), but Libro.fm is doing a virtual day in the meantime!
These meatballs look SO delicious– need to add them into the dinner rotation! It’s a good recipe to have on hand when you’re craving takeout.
FIVE // Funnelneck
Yes! I’m sharing this again. The price is still insanely low (down to $12 now with code: 5DAYS). It’s the best selling product of the YEAR so far on my blog… can’t wait to virtually twin with everyone!
