Wishing You a Wonderful Weekend 6.8.18

Happy Friday!  What are you up to this weekend?

David and I got back from Ireland late last Friday night and then left to meet his family in Vail the next day.  Fortunately, we didn’t have any jet lag and were able to enjoy a great week playing with our nephews, going out to dinner with his parents, and I even got some spa time with my sister-in-law.  We are now finally home for the weekend.  We will mostly be getting things in shape for our move and cherishing our last opportunities so visit with friends here in Colorado.

Here are some things I’ve been thinking about lately:

Can I please work for this company?  I think I would be a good tester.

Really in awe of choreographer Justin Peck and love his tap dances to contemporary music, especially this one to “Adventures in Solitude” by the New Pornagraphers.

Our amazing friend wrote this must-read article with tips for breaking our addictions to our phones.  I particularly appreciate his commentary on “doing nothing”.  Also, here’s another great tip for practicing mindfulness in case you missed it.

This is brilliant, and also made me laugh out loud.  Warning: Do not listen to the sample track if you want to stay awake.

Recently it seems there’s nothing more trendy than “wellness methods” but the principals of ‘Kintsugi’ actually spoke to me.  I am so grateful for my inner circle, so as we prepare to move, I want to be particularly mindful of ‘Yuimaru’.

I was so shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Kate Spade.  I hope that if anything good can come from such a tragedy it is greater awareness of the importance of mental health and a renewed conversation about removing the stigmas associated with depression and mental illness.

Fascinating new results that turn the famous “marshmallow challenge” on it’s head.

Did you know that the median compensation at Amazon is just $28,446?  Been thinking a lot about the proposal in this article.

Never thought I would say this, but now I’m interested in visiting the outskirts of Columbus, Ohio.

My aunt first introduced me to the versatility of shortbread and I’ve loved experimenting with different flavors ever since.  In fact, for my birthday six years ago my one request was to have a shortbread baking day with my aunt and grandmother.  The picture above is of us experimenting with anise and tangerine zest in a wholewheat shortberead.  This recipe, however, is truly unique with one ingredient I never considered.
