#BreakThings: Monday, Monday
This is the first Monday in four months that I haven’t had to rush into work. It’s a weird feeling to build your days and weeks around something and then have it suddenly end. But that’s the nature of working for a government that only meets for 90-days, every two years.
Let’s get to the #BreakThings.
I don’t usually love meringue pie, but I never considered flavoring the meringue. And what better combination for spring/summer than a lemon pie with blueberry meringue? Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons has the recipe.
This NYT article about languishing during the pandemic resonated with a lot of people who feel stuck in a COVID time loop. But Austin Kleon wants to reframe the malaise many of us are feeling, because he’s not languishing, he’s dormant.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. If you’re still searching for a great gift, I have five fab suggestions, every single one is under-$75, most under-$30. And don’t miss the cheery little citrus tree for your kitchen countertop.
Several years ago, when Kyle moved in with his dog, Sophie, I learned how a dog can communicate as clearly as speaking. She could point to the food she wanted. She could bark in such a way that I knew it was outside or water or play that she was after. She was as close to a talking dog as I thought I would ever see…until Stella.
Meet, Stella, the talking dog. She uses buttons to indicate what she wants and thoughts. It’s incredible. Watch her story on CBS Sunday Morning.
